G-Shock AW590-1A Analogue Digital Watch Review

G-Shock Analogue WatchAny readers of the blog will know that when it comes to G-Shock watches, I am a big fan for the analogue version of their watches. The G-Shock AW590-1A is another affordable entry into the analogue range of watches – and I really like it.

The watch is at the low to mid end of the G-Shock price range – around $90, and yet feels styled in a much more expensive fashion. As you might aspect, this is a tough watch, and easily deals with everyday wear and tear that gets thrown at it. Up the ante a bit, and give it some of the rough treatment, and like all G-Shocks, it continues to perform and keep its stylish looks.

The main features are:

That it features a dual display with both Analogue and Digital. The Digitial display can be set to show a number of the watches functions. You have five day alarms (not sure why you need that many!), 29 time zones, LED light that can be activated by pressing a button, or set to automatic when you turn your wrist to look at the watch – which is kinda cool.

You have the other functions such as countdown timer, stopwatch.

The watch is robust, consisting of a stainless steel case, which has the added design feature of silver-tone metal bezel, which style wise sets it apart from the single colour G-Shocks around. The same robust protective casing is still there, and being water resistant up to 600 feet – this is more than enough for mere everyday use.

Here are some of the main comments people have about the watch:

“ The watch is very sturdy, and has a lot of nice features. ”

“ I don’t find the need to have that many alarms but some may find it useful. ”

“ When I opened it I noticed the size was good – large enough bezel to look like a man’s watch, and thick enough to appear rugged. ”
