I quite like both but will probably not buy more of them... at least not now! :)
Yeah, that's why (at least in the US) retailers still sell mostly black G-Shocks, because the masses flock to them as the black color watchs are what pays everyone's bills. Most people don't like colorful and "busy". I'm definitely not like most people. However, I do know that certain watches should not be worn for certain occasions, and I wear those watches accordingly. I actually really want the GA1000-4A as well because I see it as a hybrid of a resin and luxury watch, and I don't have a G-Shock Aviator's watch...yet. Maybe if I see it on eBay for a very tempting price. Heres a picture of the GA1000's coming out in Q3 (not sure if they will both be sent to the US):

No word on pricing yet...however, in the US, the smaller bluetooth watch was $180, the larger $200, so I believe this one will be in the $220-250 range since is has a gps as well in it. It should be out in Q3 (different times based on which country you live in).
To see all of the colors and some of the upcoming G-Shocks for Q3, take a look at this link:
