This is the 7th best selling watch on Amazon for men right now so we thought we would include it. It’s still very popular and very cool even if it is one of the most simple and basic G-Shock watches out there.
A slapshot by a professional hockey player was all it took to send this G-Shock into history and into a goalies mitt, literally. If it can handle a slapshot, it can handle your life. We like to refer to it as the quintessential G-Shock.
The 5600 Casio G-Shock series was launched in 1987 and has been continuously available ever since. It is one of most basic G-Shock watches available that you can buy and we recommend it.

You may not need to dress up, but maybe you enjoy dressing up and looking your best. Many people think that Casio G-Shock watches are only for working out, the military, hunting, or situations where you will be dirty and sweating. You can also wear a G-Shock on formal occasions when you need or want to dress up and look nice.
Slap this on your wrist and you are sure to be noticed and you are bound to receive many compliments and questions.
Caveat: The only problem that we have with this watch is that emits Bluetooth which is a type of microwave radiation. This makes it potentially harmful to biological life and potentially insecure since Bluetooth is a type of networking protocol which opens up the possibility for the device to be hacked or bugged. We would recommend finding one without any kind of networking if you value your privacy and security.

Setting the time or changing the time on your Casio G-Shock watch can be difficult if you don’t have the user manual and if you are not technically inclined. Not all people are good with electronics and there is no shame in asking for help. There are also different ways to set the time on your G-Shock depending on which Casio G-Shock watch that you own.
Usually you click on the set button then move around the menus with the other buttons. These are too vague of instructions to be of use, however.
Since there is no single way to set a Casio G-Shock watch it’s best that you visit the technical support page for your particular watch. You can probably find your watch user manual and help guides at this link.
