The Rangeman is one of the more famous G-shocks around. It’s a classic.
G-shocks are known to be huge. The GW-9400 doesn’t disappoint – its case stretches 2.12 inches (54 mm) across. It’s made from resin, so it’s very shock-resistant. The resin on it is on the softer side, making it comfortable on your wrist.
Being a Navy SEAL watch, you’d want a timepiece that is easy to read in the dark. The Rangeman has a powerful LED backlight.
You need to always be on time, and it offers atomic timekeeping. This is when a device connects to atomic clocks through radio waves.
As it’s made from resin, you’re looking at a superbly waterproof piece of tech. Speaking of water, it can handle 660 feet (200 meters). It’s also a great divers watch under 500 – it’s a Navy SEAL divers watch.
The crystal on it is a regular mineral. It can handle a plenty of scratches but don’t forget that it’s not sapphire. Thankfully, the GW-9400’s shockproof body prevents it from getting damaged.
There is a myriad of features on it. You get the time in multiple time zones, alarms, and timers. One of our favourite things about it is the presence of a thermometer, barometer, and altimeter. If you didn’t know, barometers check the air pressure while altimeters read the altitude. The thermometer on it can take readings between -10 and 60 C.
You’re looking at a solar watch. Being out on the field makes this valuable as you’ll always be charging it. One of the good things about G-shocks is that all kinds of light sources charge them up. Sunlight will be powering its Japanese quartz movement.
