Previously, we sank the Pentax WG-2 Tough Camera and hoped that it would not work. Unfortunately, it was too tough for me. So the other day, I decided to stomp on the camera.
Do you think it survived?

The Pentax WG-2 looks like a wrist watch and also looks incredibly manly. While there is no camera strap, there is a small strap with carbiner.
The front of the camera is characterized by what is meant to look like armor, like in an Iron Man movie or something.
There is also a macro light around the lens, which is right in the middle.
The back of the camera is characterized by a large screen and a couple of small buttons. The buttons though, aren’t too tough to press if needed.
The top of the camera is where things start to get a little hairy. The on/off switch and shutter release are here. And frankly, both buttons are a bit tough to press.
Overall though, the camera remains to be extremely thin and fits perfectly in a pocket.
