Another great G-Shock,
Well I've only had this watch a couple of days but so far it's awesome. It is replacing another Atomic G-Shock that served me well. I'm a firefighter/paramedic and it's nice to be able to put on a watch and forget about it and just know that it will be working just fine when I need it. This is solar powered, so no worries about a battery ever dying. One new feature compared to my old G-Shock is the multi-band time sync. Not only does it pick up a signal from Colorado, but if you find yourself in the UK, most of Europe, or Japan it will sync in those locations as well. A count down timer is featured on this watch, which was missing from my old one. One useless (to me) feature of my old watch was the time logger. As far as I can tell, Casio has dropped this pointless option with this new Mudman. Like all G-Shocks, it's built like a tank. G-Shocks are just too tough for me to see myself ever wearing anything else. One word on the price...I was able to find it noticeably cheaper on another site...so look around.

Believe me, the battery will die. CTL1616 are not the best rechargeable batteries out there. However if you beat-up your watches hard and dispose of them with some frequency then I guess you should be ok as you will change your watch before the battery dies. I use them and not abuse them and try to maintain them well to keep them for long in my collection and this casio solars batteries will die up in less than 10 years and are costlier to replace.
