I have a digital version. Easily became my favorite watch within my first week of ownership. Now I just need a half decent looking one like that for when I go out for dinner.
There are a lot of G-Shock options that are pretty cheap and have water resistance up to 200m, but I don't know if that's what you're thinking. They do have analog options; I personally think they look kind of silly on the G-Shock, but a lot of people like them.
This is what I'd go for. Solar powered and atomic timekeeping, so it's pretty much maintenance free. Also water resistant up to 200m. Amazon link
Here is a great affordable g-shock that I have worn for two years with zero problems. It is actually about $50 less now than when I bought it as well.
Casio Men's GW7900B-1 G-Shock Black Solar Sport Watch
Useful? Probably not. Fun? Sometimes. Last time I flew on a plane I enjoyed checking the pressure/altimeter to see what altitude the pressurized cabin was simulating.
For me, the reason to go with the Rangeman was much more mundane: it's one of the few full digital face (no analog), positive LCD atomic solar watches in the G-shock line, and it looks good on my large wrists. The 7900 is beautiful but the negative LCD is just too difficult to read, especially in low indoor lighting and at oblique angles.
Do you have large wrists?

Up for grabs! Both pieces I adore but do not get enough wrist time.
All prices include shipping within the CONUS via USPS. I prefer to require a signature upon delivery.

Love this piece. I've always been a big fan of the negative display and atomic time sync function, so when it came time to get a watch with a tide function, this was an easy choice. This will come with a JaysAndKays NATO as well as the original rubber strap w/ wrist guards.
(EDIT: After reviewing the photos, this bit of "gunk" around the face is just dust. this will be cleaned prior to shipping.)
Victorinox Officers Quartz 241550.2 [$80]
Bought about one year ago. I have always carried a Victorinox Cadet so this was right up my alley! It comes on a Black Nato strap. A very nice, thin piece that sits on the wrist very well.
Looking to sell but open to some trades.
Just got my first G-Shock last weekend to see if I like the size and style, been wearing it ever since. Went with the DW9052-1V and would like to start moving up into nicer ones, I've been considering the GW7900B-1 for my next one because it has solar charging and auto illumination. Thoughts?

Just the stuff I carry in my bag. A first aid kit, duck tape, a screw driver, eyeglass retainer, paracord, extra lock, and some playing cards. The bag I use is the Maxpedition Falcon II.
I own this exact model.
I've taken it dog sledding in -30° F weather, snowboarding, swimming, surfing, hiking, etc. It's my go-to watch any time I'm doing something remotely athletic or outdoorsy and the functionality on is great. I'd recommend buying it elsewhere though. I found mine for around $80 I believe. I don't remember where I bought it, I'll see if I can dig up the e-mail from when I purchased it.
Nevermind, it looks like I paid about $103 for it. Here's the link I bought it from (it's $115 now):
I've been really enjoying the G Shock GW7900:
But I also really like the the black riseman, but it's almost twice as much:
I love my G Shock GW7900B-1, solar powered & auto light up when I bring my wrist up to look at time, and more!
