Is it me, or did Seiko stop making nice digital watches?
Casio blew them aside with better quality, reliability and robustness and longer battery life. If one cannot compete, move upmarket.

Can you make a video for us of the screen while it's syncing? Does it have AutoSync when you sleep?

Found one on eBay...

Seiko SBPG001 | eBay
Nothing special while it's syncing, and yes, it Auto Syncs during the night.

There's a lot of info, with pictures, in the Owner's Manual found here: http://www.seiko-watch.co.jp/resource/pdf/manual/S760.PDF English language starts on page 86.

If you want one, your best bet is eBay or find one in the For Sale Forum here on WUS. You could also post a Want To Buy listing here on WUS.

Good luck in your search.

The only negatives are...

1) No longer supported (This is why I'm angry at Seiko)

2) People complained about battery not holding charge

Otherwise its great!

Is it water proof?

Please define how you interpret "supported." Are you expecting parts availability? Software updates? Technical support?

According to this page [ seiko specialty store 3s | Rakuten Global Market: Seiko spirit power design project digital solar radio watch mens Watch Silver SBPG001 ] and this page [ http://www.higuchi-inc.com/sbpg001.html ] it's supposed to be 10BAR water resistant which equals 100m water resistance -- where are you doing your "research?"

Go read this thread -- there's even a link to the Seiko owner's manual: https://www.watchuseek.com/f304/seiko-sbpg001-spirit-digital-review-comparison-300544.html

Sorry, I was assuming they don't support it since I called them once asking about the seiko spoon watch and they couldn't tell me anything about it.
