    Is there one that tracks miles and points and automatically updates the totals based on GPS data? ;)

    I have a similarly-featured Casio G Shock that I like quite a bit. I've never been able to wear metal-banded watches, so the Casio is a better match for my comfort. Oh, it was less expensive too. Your Citizen is a nice-looking watch though.

    Pretty sure this is the one I have: http://www.casio.com/products/Watches/G-Shock/GW3000BB-1A/

    I agree, metal (even titanium) bands can become uncomfortable! BTW that is one good looking watch, love the 'tough solar' markings on it. BTW, i think the Casio might be more functional that the citizen, since the model i have has pre-programmed time zone mode for LA-DEN-CHI-NYC-LON and then an alternate time mode. I know they came out with a newer version which is more 'global', but i am happy with the current one (for now :D). On an unrelated note, I miss the timex 'indiglo' series, nothing like lighting up a cabin on a long haul with a eerie green glow, well this was before we all had smartphones and tablets emitting eerie glows :)

    Only respectable ones ;)

    The list is quite ridiculous. Might as well do Lambo/Ferrari rental review for budget travel :| And yet, Seiko Astron somehow did not make the list?! I'd take that one over any listed for functionality and it is still way cheaper.

    My citizen atomic radio watch with all the time zones serves me rather well for <$120 (admittedly a price mistake, but even regular $220 is good).
