WOW. June 24 2012

I was surprised when the watch arrived today. I'm stationed at a remote outpost in Afghanistan and it kind of made my day.
I've always owned G-Shocks and have been slowly making my way up to their top of the line watches. By far, this is the most advanced watch they have. I calibrated the thermo/compass and shazaam! It's excellent. I definitely recommend this watch to anyone who needs function and fantastic form.

Ok for the price but could be better Feb. 4 2014
By Survival Dude - Published on
Verified Purchase
I've had this watch for about 4 months now and would like to give feedback for those who might be purchasing this for the same reasons I did. First I chose the brand because a close friend of mine from the military swore by the G-Shock watches. He was deployed to Iraq a few times and said him and many of the older soldiers used them, and that they were rock solid. I wanted a watch that was:

- Water resistant
- Shock proof
- Self powering (solar)
- Had a built in compass
- Was built well

I can safely say that it was built well is shock proof, water resistant, and that the built in compass works ok, but I wouldn't do any navigating with it.

The temperature measurement is highly inaccurate. You have to take the watch off of your wrist and let it sit in the elements for a good 20+ minutes to get a somewhat accurate temperature reading.

The major issue I have with the watch is the battery life. It's speced as giving 8 months of battery on a full charge. When I first received the watch I got it up to full charge and it only lasted me roughly 2 months. Since then the battery life hasn't been great. I've charged it up to "medium" two or 3 times now and the watch has died on me twice. No every night I set the watch on my lamp so that it charges extra before I go to bed and while I get ready in the morning. This seems to keep it from dying, but I was under the impression it would charge from normal daylight during my daily activities. (It is exposed to light a good 8ish hours of the day already). This is just a bit frustrating since I've purchased $20 watches 5 and 6 years ago that are still chugging along on the original battery.

Over all the watch is definitely solid and could take a pretty hard beating, but if the purchasing point is because of the solar option, or the temperature reading you should probably look elsewhere.

Excellent gshock Nov. 2 2011
By Ronald Rohde - Published on
rock solid gshock, mud buttons take a little extra pressure, but very waterproof. Compass is quick and alarm is loud. Numbers are bright, size is perfect for larger wrists, not too thick, but heavy feel.

I can honestly say that my 9300-1 is now the largestwatch in my collection Nov. 5 2014
By Seth - Published on

EDIT 12/01/14:
I received the replacement watch on 11/15/14. It arrived on High charge, which was a great sign of things to come. After two weeks of wearing the watch 24/7, and exposing it to nearly zero sunlight, it fell to Medium. The next day, I left it sitting in a window for approximately four hours. That was enough to get the battery back to High. Here we are, a little over two weeks later, and it's still on High. I will try and let it run down to Low before charging it again, and shall report back with my findings.

EDIT 11/13/14:
I have owned the watch a little over four weeks now and have discovered that the battery isn't charging properly. It has three battery level indicators - Low, Medium, and High. As I understand it, a full charge on this watch should last nearly eight months. After several days perched in a window, receiving direct sunlight for hours on end, it will not charge beyond Medium, and even that only lasts about two days. One night I even noticed that it took itself from Low back up to Medium despite getting no sunlight whatsoever. I am in the process of returning the watch now, and will provide updates as they become available.

Original Review 11/5/14:
It was a toss up for me between the G-9300-1 and a GW-9300-1JF, and I just picked up this G-9300-1 about a few week ago. It's listed at 53x51mm, and 18mm tall. With the exception of the atomic time setting, my 9300-1 is the same as the 9300-1JF, as far as I can tell. I can honestly say that my 9300-1 is now the largest watch in my collection. From the top-down, looking at the face of the watch, it doesn't look awful on my 8.25" wrist. From the side/profile, however, there is no getting around how massive it is.

I've been wearing it since receiving it, and I mostly like it. I bought the piece as an "end of the worth, SHTF" watch. I wanted something rugged as hell, waterproof, and solar powered. I opted not to get the 1JF because I couldn't find any documentation about what would happen should the 6 towers go down - as well as to save $150. There are a few things about the watch that I am not happy with, though (besides how tall it is).

This is in no way meant to keep you from making the same purchase, but rather a meager attempt to inform the masses of what I see as being flaws in the watch.

Issue 1:

I'm not even sure what SIG stands for, but I know what it does. If enabled, it chirps on the hour (1200, 1300, et al.). My problem with it is where the setting for it is located. It's not just within the alarm settings, it's the first setting therein. So, if you want to set an alarm, you have to cycle through the different modes to the alarm mode, then cycle past the SIG setting to your alarms. That doesn't make any sense to me; it'd be better suited being within the normal settings, found by holding the Adjust button while in the normal time mode.

Issue 2:
The backlight.

It is impossible to keep the backlight illuminated while switching through the different modes. If it's dark out, you have to switch modes, then hit the backlight button to see if you've found yourself at the desired mode. If not, switch modes again and check once more.

The backlight is also a bit worthless when setting timers/alarms. Suppose it's dark and you want to set a new timer, for example. You'll be doing some trial and error to get the correct time entered. Let's say I already have a timer set up for 59 minutes, and I want to set a new timer for 50. I'd have to navigate my way to the timer mode (hitting the backlight button along the way to find it). Then I would take note of the already set timer so I know if I need to go up or down. Next, you're forced to wait for the backlight to go off. Once it's off, hold the Adjust button for a few moments so you can manipulate the time. Now you're completely in the dark because the backlight button changes the hours/minutes down (logic says it should change it up, but that's besides the point). So, hit the mode button once to switch from hours blinking to minutes blinking (and hope that the button press worked), then hit the backlight button 9 times to drop the minutes from 59 to 50. Press the Adjust button again to set the time, and the backlight button to check your work. If the correct time is entered, you have to wait for the backlight to go off before before activating the newly set timer. Once it's activated, you can press the backlight button again to confirm that it is counting down.

Want to set an alarm while you're in the dark? Repeat the whole process outlined above.

Issue 3:
The compass and temperature.

If you hit the compass button, it brings up the current bearing and temp. The bearings are pretty accurate so long as you keep your wrist in the Goldilocks position; the case of the watch must be perfectly horizontal, otherwise you can see fluctuations as large as 100°. Variations on case levelness as little as 5° of pitch can change the bearing up to 10°, I've found.

Second, out of the box, the temperature is wildly inaccurate if you're wearing the watch. In order to see correct temperature readings, I had to take the watch off and let it sit for about 15 minutes. That is simply unacceptable in most situations. However, it does have the ability to readjust the temperature, adding or subtracting as many degrees as you like. I found my watch to be pretty consistently off by about +10°F, and lowered it accordingly. This seems to have done the trick for the most part. The problem I see with this is that my skin's temperature will vary slightly in an effort to regulate my body temperature, thus rendering my adjustment ineffective at times (Is it winter or summer? Am I indoors or outdoors?)

Third, while you can have the backlight on when entering Compass mode, the backlight acts kind of wonky within it. When in Compass mode, pressing the backlight button doesn't simply activate the backlight, but also freezes the current bearing for five seconds (backlight only stays on for max of three seconds, mind you). If it hasn't yet detected the bearing/temp when you hit the backlight button, it freezes the display on, well, nothing. For five seconds. Let's say it's dark and you're facing S, but want to face ENE. You pull up your watch, level it off as best you can, enter Compass mode, wait a few seconds for it to detect the bearing, then hit the backlight button to view it. Adjust your heading/position accordingly, making sure to wait at least five seconds for it to clear out the previous bearing, and then hit the backlight button again. If successful, good for you. If not, rinse and repeat.

Fourth, and most irritating, the watch doesn't maintain bearing/temperature reading, nor does it reset after viewing the bearing/temperature. It takes about two seconds for the watch to detect and display the bearing/temp. You only have 18 seconds left to view it, before it times out and goes blank. It doesn't change back to the time mode. It just... goes blank and stays that way until you do something else.

By listing the issues, I do not mean to deter you from purchasing your own piece. I think it's a great watch for what it is and what it costs, and it's damn-near perfect for why I bought it. I will just have to learn to live with its flaws!

US Army Soldier May 25 2015
By Josh G - Published on

Let me start by saying that this is a great watch. I had my doubts about buying it at first but man am I glad I bought it in the end. To give you an idea of this watches day to day life, I am in the US Army so it sees a lot of action each day from land navigation to situation training.

Pros: Love that it is solar powered, this way I don't have to worry about the battery dying when I use the light or compass, just wear it in the sun and it charges itself. Between night land navigation and military ops both these functions see a lot of use. That being said I love the fact that this watch has a compass. Down side is that you have to calibrate north using a separate compass, other than that it comes in great in a pinch. The moon phases feature is pretty helpful especially in junction with the compass. The watch also includes a small battery level display on the main screen so you can have an idea of its charge level. The ability to set another time zone and have it displayed is a nice feature to use when I find myself out of the country. At first I was worried about this watch being to big as some of the other G-Shocks I have seen are huge. Presently to my surprise this watch really is not to big in fact it is just about the right size and the wrist band has enough notches to accommodate just about any wrist size.

Cons: I really don't have much to say here, only some nicky picky things. The temperature feature is cool but rather inaccurate while on your wrist since the sensor is right next to your skin and picks up body heat. I love the multiple alarms but I wish that they were a little louder, I am not a heavy sleeper but find that sometimes the alarm is too quiet to wake me up.

Overall opinion: This is a great watch, I really can't say enough good about it.It is durable, functional and looks cool. I highly recommend this watch to anyone looking for a good watch, especially military and police personnel.
