G-Shock Mudmaster Rating Calculations

In order to compose [what we think] a statistically significant Mudmaster Rating System, we needed to go deeper into technical specs and compare them within the relevant watch collection. In the Mudmaster case, we took all ANA-DIGI watches (as they use a similar caliber development approach) and all DIGITAL mudmaster series (separately from ana-digi of course) 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 πŸ™‚

Functions Rating Calculations

*we took all common features in the Mudmaster ANA-DIGI model range (from new watches to old watches) and listed them in the table. Some features have more power (like Tough Solar or G-Shock Bluetooth technology) and they receive more points than others.

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.
