I've never relied on my G-shock watch alarm, it was always to quite and the pitch of the alarm I couldn't hear (I am slightly hearing impaired) I started wearing a Pebble Time watch and the alarm vibrates my wrist and wakes me up every time. It's a smart watch, so you can link it to your phone with multiple uses.

I'm on my second G-Shock in 20 years. They're damn near indestructible, in my experience. I don't use the alarm on them, but the first one took a real beating and never failed to keep the proper time; which, after all, is a watch's true purpose, right?

Can't say that I've ever used a watch for an alarm.  I've never known them to be loud enough.  I only ever use mine as a timepiece, a timer, and a chronograph... and my G-Shock DW-9052 does those well.

There are so many variations of G-Shock watches out there, it is a little mind numbing.  Any outdoorsmen/women out there that would recommend one that would be well suited for camping, boating, fishing, hunting, etc.?

Things like alarms are not a concern of mine, it is more about durability against the elements, waterproofing, visibility in poor light, etc.

Thanks in advance for any reccomendations

I highly recommend mine, the DW-9052.  They're only about $70-80, and they're tough as hell.  I even bought mine used from a garage sale for $3 and it just needed a new battery.  Nothing fancy, it's all plastic, digital with a countdown timer, an alarm, a stopwatch, and a green backlight, and they take a CR2032 battery that's available pretty much everywhere.  It is on the bulky side, but it's a good no-frills no-nonsense watch that'll take a beating.

 

Looks like Walmart even has them on sale now for about $40.

As a whole the above-average G-Shocks in terms of resilience would be anything tagged with the "Tough Solar" brand. They're usually slightly more expensive than the usual fashion G-Shocks, but given what I've seen and heard about from people who own them, they really can take a beating. In my dreams I own many Frogmen, but realistically I'm more inclined towards the Mudmen for price vs. value.

That is a slick-looking watch, but that dial is a bit... busy, perhaps?  I guess I'd have to see it "in person", but from the picture it looks a bit hard-to-read.

Casio GW-M530A tough solar and atomic. It's not to big but the time display is larger then most and easy to read. A good solid everyday watch that can take anything you can throw at it.

One of my oldest watch is a G-Shock.  It's my ultimate beater watch that has been exposed to just about anything.  Dust, dirt, slime, blood, water, snow, long exposure to sunlight, been lost to a drawer for months without light for months and yet this piece stays alive and working great like new.  I've had this watch for more than 15+ years and without a battery change.  I still have it to this very day and I use it to synchronize my other autos/mech and quartz watches.  I can honestly say that I've gotten my $ worth with this old watch.  I paid around $90 for it through Campmor and considered it a big purchase back then.
