In order to compose [what we think] a statistically significant G-Shock Rating System, we needed to go deeper into technical specs and compare them within the relevant watch collection. In the very case, we took all G-Shock Q-Squad Watches with GPS function (in the watch, not third-party) and started comparing details. We stick to the point you are to know our rating calculations methods since it is not a black box [like in most services & shops] and you may find new details about other watches. Hope you will like our tremendous job and will continue using our magazine in your current and future purchases 🙂

Functions Rating Winners & Losers
Price Rating Calculations & Winners & Losers
*we took Japan’s official price and converted it to USD. The price may not be the same as on Amazon or other marketplaces, but it is good for building a representative rating system.
*Although some watches may have the cheapest price, they may not get the highest rate because of poor functions rating.
