Best money spent ever on a watch!David Bordon, Amazon customer
Love the watch very nice and rugged. I wear it daily and would buy again in a heartbeat. Love the band, really cool.Amazon customer
This is one of those G-Shocks which comes at an affordable price yet with lots of features and a great design. An innovative design feature was introduced with the G-Shock GD-400 which is represented by the steel protectors for the display, similar to steel bars on cars. This is a plus for those who frequently drop their watch or fall on it because now all the scratches and shocks will be absorbed by protectors rather than the display.
The negative display adds to the overall stealthiness of the watch, although it might have some inconveniences when it comes to readability in low light. The green inscriptions are good looking. If you want different colors like red or black (with a positive display) check them by clicking the links at the top of the page.
The resin band although pretty standard has a rubbery feel and feels good on the wrist. The weight of the watch is evenly distributed across the surface and that makes for a great overall experience. You will even forget you wear this G-Shock after some time. That’s how lightweight Casio managed to manufacture it. However, this doesn’t mean that the watch is small, actually not even close. It is kind of bulky and has a diameter of nearly 50 mm, so it will look small only on large wrists. Expect to pass through an accommodation period if you never had big watches before. But after that, you will love how this G-Shock fits on the hand.
When it comes to the display the visibility is quite good in most situations although I would not recommend it if you plan on frequently using the watch during nighttime or in poor lighting conditions. Yeah, there is a LED backlight advertised as a “Super Illuminator” but a negative display will never be as readable as a positive display in no light. That’s just what I feel after experiencing multiple watches with both negative and positive displays.
The G-Shock GD-400 is one of the best choices you can make when it comes to a tough, great looking G-Shock with many features and a great fit on the wrist. The watch works like a charm in everyday activities and for the price, it’s a steal. I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants the best value for the money.
