The great outdoors can be a cruel and unforgiving place at times. Fortunately, with the right gear, any manner of desert landscapes, muddy jungles, frigid mountain terrain or wild wilderness can become a bit less hostile. Case-in-point, G-Shock’s newest addition to the Master of G line-up, the Rangeman GPRB1000 watch.
What’s truly special about the new member to the G-Shock family isn’t just a highly rugged build complete with shock, mud and water resistance, but its advanced survival features. Specifically, we’re talking GPS signal reception where location information is downloaded from GPS satellites to track your movements and show the bearing to your destination. Logged data for your route is also automatically stored in memory while a dedicated app can be used to set planned route details and display them on the watch as well. The new solar-powered Rangeman also boasts a Backtrack Function and Point Memory Function in addition to Triple Sensor Technology (a compass, thermometer and depth sensor to be exact), Bluetooth communication to facilitate multi-device functionality and 200 meters of water resistance keeps things ticking in even the wettest of environments. Truly a survival-tough watch for the serious outdoorsman. Available now.
