Nice feature is that it auto syncs with WWVB time signal from Colorado. This watch will always be on time.

So it syncs automatically? You don’t have to set it up to sync? I am pretty excited about this watch! Should receive it this Sat.

I've been eyeing for this. Decent price. Still waiting for the price to drop like last year.

I don't personally own this watch but I checked the specs. If it is like my Citizen, it works automatically.

You'll only need to ensure that the proper daylight savings time setting is enabled as well as your time zone.

With all these types of watches....
You can manually sync it, but the watch will also automatically try to sync every night overnight. In Ottawa, the signal is fairly weak, and I always put the watch face up on the window ledge facing south-west so it a better chance of receiving the signal (also, it's good to keep it near a window so it can solar charge.

Yeah, good luck with that. Mine has never synced. not because it's defective, but simply because we are too far from Colorado to catch a signal. I'm in Quebec.

When I lived in Montreal. Mine worked fine, I wouldn't get reception every day, but still often enough to keep the time. Just be sure you don't live in a basement apartment or are surrounded by highrises, that might make it less reliable.

Even in Ottawa, syncing is a bit iffy. I have a Citizen Eco Drive Atomic Skyhawk and it only syncs if I put it in the window sill on second floor. I have a Weather Station clock and same thing. It will sync eventually if I leave it there for a night or two. Not sure if clear weather helps or not but I think it's also weather dependent.

On the Eco Drive, you can press a button to check the signal strength. It reads "weak" during the day usually.

$94 was the lowest, but I don't think it has been anywhere near that low since then

Thanks for sharing OP. Had been eyeing a good deal on the Multiband 6 watch for a long time (in and around the current pricepoint)

I have the same watch, bought a few years back. Of all my G-Shocks, I love this one the most. It's old school and understated, solar + auto sync time.

I have this watch. Awesome retro look and great functionality. Solar power and atomic clock sync!

Not sure where some of these lower prices are coming from, but according to CCC, $113 was the lowest on Amazon.

1st rule of RFD! ➡We don't talk about RFD!
2nd rule of RFD! ➡READ the OP (Original Post), thread summary and the current part of thread!

I have the negative display version of this watch, and it's great. I've also bought a kit off aliexpress to convert this into a budget metal g-shock which has made this feel much more upscale.
