This G Shock is the perfect combination of analog + digital, but also of rugged toughness + style. It's a big watch...if you have small hands/wrists, it will look BIG on you. However, it's very lightweight and comfortable to wear. It has all the 'standard' features you'd expect in a G Shock digital, plus the tachymeter...if you ever want/need/use that feature.
The analog hands and metallic accents give almost a more 'dressed up' look, but this is definitely not a 'dress watch'. The reverse face...light numbers over dark background...are very readable inside and outside. No issues there. The only issue is the LED light...only the analog hands are readable with this light on. It wasn't a big deal...I still used the alarm feature with no problems. If you need to do multiple, complex functions on your watch...in total darkness...then this is probably a deal-breaker for you. If you just need need to see what time it is, or hit the snooze on the alarm, the light is just fine.
I've had this in the pool, in the sand, in the ocean, and banged it against walls. It still works flawlessly, and looks amazing. By far my favorite G Shock I've ever owned. Well worth the money I paid for it ($103).
I love this watch!
