Casio Middle East is proud to announce the launch of the world’s first Hybrid GPS and Radio Control timekeeping watch, the G-SHOCK GPW-1000, across their outlets in the GCC.
Precision-engineered to keep perfect time even in the most extreme of circumstances, the G-SHOCK GPW-1000 features the world’s first ever hybrid timekeeping system that utilises both Global Positioning System (GPS) signals as well as radio wave time calibration signals from as many as six stations across the world. By integrating these mutually complementing timekeeping systems, Casio has created an innovative timepiece that harnesses the power of technology to provide more accurate time measurement.
“We are very excited to unveil the revolutionary new G-SHOCK GPW-1000 in the Middle East,” said Tsuneo Nagai, Managing Director of Casio Middle East. 'The GPW-1000 watch was developed to realize the ultimate in toughness through refinements in accuracy and durability drawing on Casio technology. The watch offers unsurpassed toughness combined with the world’s first hybrid time keeping system. From dense forest to desert dunes, in marine environments or surrounded by buildings or indoors, the GPW-1000 keeps accurate time anywhere in the world by receiving GPS signals and radio wave time-calibration signals.'
The watch automatically receives standard time-calibration radio waves where available. At other times the watch receives positioning data from a GPS satellite, the system employs high-resolution map data to determine the user’s location more precisely. Application of a variable data analysis technique to group regions with the same Summer Time setting in the same time zone enables it to make quick, accurate time difference adjustments.
To compensate for increased power consumption, the Casio G-SHOCK GPW-1000 features a new low-power consumption, high-performance GPS LSI, as well as a new shape of solar cell with high-efficiency output.
The Triple G Resist construction features a reinforced construction to resist shocks, centrifugal force, and vibrations. A high strength and durability carbon fiber insert band, and bezel with scratch-resistant coating ensure a level of toughness to withstand the harshest of environments.
A next-generation HYBRID GPS Radio Control G-SHOCK watch has evolved uniquely with full functionality in any region or time zone.
