Watch Review

Dial & Case Design

This G-Shock watch has a standard colouration digital dial that packs in all the information from the many extra features that the timepiece includes. It’s a very easy to read dial with a backlight that makes the display easier to see in dim lit conditions. As you’d expect from a G-Shock watch the stainless steel casing is wrapped in this protective resin that gives the watch a great level of shock, vibration, heat, and water resistance.

Type Of Crystal

Protecting the dial of the watch we have a mineral crystal glass. This type of glass is specially hardened to make it extra resistant to scratches and knocks. It is also shatter resistant that’s ideal for a watch designed to withstand shock.

Watch Movement

Powering the watch we find a Japanese quartz movement. These are found in many Casio G-Shock watches and are known for their reliability as well as their low maintenance. They are an accurate movement that’s also affordable making them perfect for these affordable Casio watches.

Watch Size

As you’d expect from one of these watches, it’s fairly big, primarily due to that protective resin wrap. The casing diameter is 46mm whilst the thickness measures 15mm. This gives the watch a bit of a chunky feel and will certainly be noticeable on the wrist. Keep in mind that these larger watches aren’t so suitable for people with smaller wrists.

Strap

The strap is also made of a comfortable rubber resin and has a 24mm width. This fastens with a fairly standard buckle style clasp.

Extra features

Being a G-Shock watch I’m sure you knew there were some extra functions to come. Features of this timepiece include a backlight, e-Data memory, world time display, alarm system, countdown timer, and a stopwatch.

Water Resistance Rating

The water resistance level of this watch is 200m, this is what you find in many of the G-Shock watches and something I’m always impressed with. A rating of 200m / 20 Bar / 600ft makes this watch suitable for professional marine activity, serious surface water sports and skin diving.

My Final Thoughts On This G-Shock G-2900F-2VER Review:

The G-Shock G-2900F-2VER with its brilliant blue design is a little different to many of the other G-Shock watches I’ve come across in this price range. It’s perfect for people with a more active lifestyle who are after a watch that can withstand a bit more of a battering. As always these watches offer great value for money and I highly recommend them.

After looking into the watch design, quality, features, and pricing this watch received an 8/10 from us at The Watch Blog.
