    Give me your suggestions for a Sports Watch. I like big G-Shocks and I prefer Black or dark colors. Around or preferably under $100.

    Are there any more specifics you can give? Any specific features you need - thermometer, compass, multi-alarms, world time, chrono, etc.?
    What is the intended use of the watch, if there is one?

    I'd go for a G-shock DW or GW 6900 if you like the watches "big". I own a Mudman and it is chunkier than a normal watch but as far as G's go, its rather smallish.

    I have worn a Mudman for 3+ years to work. Haven't had any issues with the rechargeable battery and I love the atomic time keeping

    I have a G-Shock G-1000 (analog face) which works quite well. The one issue I've had with it is the rubberized band can make your wrist unpleasantly sweaty, especially when working out in the summer (I swapped the band for a nylon one (which was somewhat non-trivial, as the band isn't designed to be removed…) which is working much better).

    I ended up going with the GD-110MS-3C. It is a matte black and reverse displayed. There aren't many good pictures of it online and the most popular online seems to be the OD Green.

    The other watch I was considering was the GA 100. Which is a SEXY SCHMEXY watch. I chose the GD over the GA only because I don't need another dress watch right now.

    Is there a decipher code to understanding G Shocks model numbers?
