The unique carbon core guard structure of the GGB100-1A3 allowed for the removal of guards that would traditionally protect the watch buttons and employs a filter to avoid dirt intrusion creating a mud-resistant structure. The model also comes equipped with a large front light button, to provide high visibility and usability.
Other key features include the Bluetooth mobile link function, which through the G-SHOCK Connected app, provides a location indicator and memory, mission log memory, and automatic correction for altitude, among other features. In addition, the timepiece’s Quad sensors- compass, thermometer, barometer, and step tracker – further enhance its location and step tracking capabilities.
The timepiece also comes equipped with G-SHOCK technology such as:
- Shock resistance
- 200M water resistance
- World time (39TZ / 39 cities)
- 5 Alarms
- Countdown timer
- Auto Super Illuminator LED light
- Countdown timer
- 1/100 stopwatch
The GGB100-1A3 will retail for $350 and will be available for purchase beginning in August.
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com
