foggy lens, is it really a G shock?
on June 13, 2015
I have had this watch for a few years. it has a major flaw. as a G shock rated for 200m, i expected alot more from this watch. it has condensation on the crystal when the temperature changes. I mean when I go outside from an air conditioned room, it fogs. I ride my bike on a summer day and it fogs. take a shower, it fogs. it fogged up so much it stopped working (ruined capacitor) and I had it repaired at the local shop. still fogs after the repair. the instruction manual included with the watch mentions that minor condensation will occur, and the solution is to wait for the temp to adjust. no such statement is on the instructions published online. "minor" is a loose term, because it looks like "major" fogging. does casio really market this a G shock? and for this price I would expect the watch to maintain a basic function- a clear view of the dial. consumer research indicates many casio g shock analogs will fog! I would not recommend any analog G shock
