The Ultimate Guide to All G-SHOCKs — composed by Experts
The GLS-5600 is a lesser-known winter G-LIDE model designed for skiing and snowboarding. While winter G-LIDE models are usually of the large-case variety, the GLS-5600 is based on the classic 5600 case which is a more compact and slimmer size. The GLS-5600CL models have a cloth band with a stainless steel buckle and keeper and the GLS-5600WCL has a Velcro-style cloth band. The bands have an embroidered patch with G-LIDE and Shock Resist logos, inspired by military apparel. The GLS-5600CL/WCL is low temperature resistant to -20°C (-0.4°F). Another distinguishing feature is the 1/100 second double stopwatch. Other features include countdown timer, 5 daily alarms, world time, and auto EL backlight.
