Looking for some insight on the GWM850 versus the GW530A. Both are similar in price and style. Appreciate any insight. I already have a MUDMAN, so am I gaining much other than a different style?

Thinking one of these may be a good stocking stuffer :)

thanks!

One key difference:

GWM850 has a countdown timer (up to 24 hours), which I find useful.
GW530A does not.

GWM850 also has various "rally timer" functions, which I never use.

GWM850 has more useful functions, pleasing clarity and a modern reliable module.

GW530A has significantly inferior functionality, a less orderly display and an older module that proved to be unreliable when it was first released. *


* although later models may well be OK

the only thing about the GWM850 is that the LCD screen seems a little on the small side

otherwise, i think its a fantastic G-Shock

btw, i think the white 850 looks better than the black one :)

gotta love the 850. |>

here's a time lapse it was featured in on a big watch arrival day:



it's a modern module with a cool metal bezel and someone constrained overall design. one of the best g values, i think. also, the band was exceptionally comfortable for me.
