For a company who got their start manufacturing a cigarette-holding wearable ring, Casio sure has evolved. Now they are known the world-round for their musical instruments, computer-based tech, and (of course) their timepieces. Their line of G-Shock watches are certainly some of our favorites – not just from Casio, but in the entire watch world. Now, one of their popular Gravitymasters (their GPW-1000 Master of G aviation style watch) is getting a big upgrade.
Fittingly named the GPW-2000, this new version incorporates everything that was great about its former version and adds some very neat new tech. Namely, it features a new 3-way time correction system. This new system uses a combination of GPS, radio waves, and Bluetooth smartphone connectivity to automatically ensure time accuracy throughout the day. It also comes with a brand new flight log function, exclusive to the 2000, that operates in conjunction with the G-Shock Connected app and an all new anti-vibration case structure that better resists shock from impact, Earth gravity, and other sources of vibration. Finally, it’s fitted with a double disk display, carbon fiber insert band and second hand, and a JIS Class 1 magnetic resistance shield. When this watch is released in May, it will retail for around $880. [Purchase]
