I just got one of these and love it.

Anyone able to suggest a good place for an alternative strap.
Got the urge to mix it up some,
I'd be interested in a metal bracelet as I don't get on with rubber straps.

Headsup that John Lewis currently have 20% off the watch and it's showing as 3 left in stock currently.

Anyway, I really like the look of the GBD-200.

Especially, what do you think of way it handles notifications?

Does it also show basic Google maps text notifications on the screen when walking? Or just texts, calls, etc
I haven't tried the Google directions. I'll wear it tomorrow and report back.
Update to my previous response....

I went for a walk this evening with Google maps sat nav running and the watch didn't give any updates. Shame. That would have been nice.

My Fitbit didn't either and the app indicated that Google Maps notifications should get through. I suppose a direction change doesn't qualify as a notification.

Last day of the Honeymoon chose to wear this one.

My Wife definitely thinks I’m weird for taking off a cheap plastic watch and putting this on when i go in the sea!



And I may of treated myself to this today, apologies for it not being a G.

Thanks regarding the selection, I’m afraid to tell you what i got the Seiko for, it was another to good to be real deal at £422!

In The Maldives a place called Dreamland. https://dreamland.com.mv/

Shame to be leaving, but missing the kids, cats and my ring doorbell is offline for some reason so haven’t been able to keep track of progress on the pond.

I fancy picking up a g shock for the rotation, just a relatively cheap one for more casual stuff and will probably be worn on holiday later in the year. Not looking to spend more than £100 really, I've looked at the 2100 so far but looking for some recommendations, no real preference on colours but nothing too bright.

Thank you, there do seem to be a few places with discount codes so shouldn't be too hard to source and looks good value.

The colours on that go with my tattoo so found one on watch shop and used a discount code, £82 and here by Wednesday so happy with that. Thanks for the recommendation.

Now to ensure I don't go further down a rabbit hole with unnecessary purchases...

Are the metal cases on the 2100 series interchangeable with the regular versions?

I would need to to buy both, but a blue 2100 solar/bluetooth with metal case is quite tempting for me!

I really don’t need yet another G shock but that particular model is proving difficult to resist…

Roll on August!

I took a gamble and got a converter designed for the DW5600 which fits the GM100 really well and allows the use of 22mm straps.




I'm going to get a more chunky 22mm bracelet so it's the same thickness as the converter so it looks more OEM.
