The new Mudman's been on my wrist for a month now, and it turns out to be a notch (or two) above my ancient version; it's more shock resistant and, this time, uses a sealed case to lock out foreign particles, like the oil, dust or mud my old one was constantly battling on road trips. It sets itself NASA-style, by automatically calibrating to the signals it receives from atomic clocks in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Japan. I also dunked it in a pool several times, and sure enough, it's water resistant (well, it's still working). The Mudman's world time features mean you also get 29 time zones, city codes and daylight saving settings, which I'll admit have come in handy but can be hectic to figure out. Issues? Despite the automatic satellite updates, my Mudman took days to lock onto the "right" time zone, so the initial time displayed was an hour off for a while. Still, with its chunky, black-resin band and weatherproof seals, it's a good fit for outdoor activities like motorcycling. Plus, it won't break the bank.
