Default New beater watch

I haven't bought a brand new watch in over 20 years. Started a new job that's quite physical so I bought a cheap one for a beater. I've always liked budget Armitrons and this one has a G-Shock look to it. I have 2 from the 90's that my wife bought for me that still run great. Between the promo codes and Kohls rewards points this one cost me almost nothing. Packed with features and a lifetime warranty. Very large too, at 56mm it's worthy of Neilo's wrist.

Automatic calendar: day & date; pre-programmed to 2099
5 daily alarms
Hourly chime
12/24-hour formats
Dual time display
Chronograph: lap time; 1/100-second increments
Pace counter
Countdown timer
Water resistance: 100 meters
Screw-down caseback

Looks good Jerry. Put it to the test with some heavy use in the field.

Nice bit 'o kit as our friends across the pond like to say. That baby should take the heat and a ton of features too! Speaking of which, can you program your garage door opener with it? Of course I'm kidding but when you think of it, that's not a bad idea, eh?
