As such, it is a full-analog solar timepiece that rocks a monocoque case design and featuring carbon reinforced resin, a “Dive Mode” function, gloves-friendly buttons, Bluetooth connectivity, and works with G-Shock Connected App that offers access to tide data settings for around 3,000 locations worldwide and most importantly for all intents and purposes of this watch, let you review diving log on your smartphone.
The dive log provides you the ability to mark dive locations, time, date, number of dives, and even photos. Meanwhile Tide Point, lets you select from a preset list of some the world’s most famous dive points or set your own.
Like most such collaboration, it is limited to cosmetics in which GWFA1000RN8A drew its inspiration from Her Majesty’s Ship Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier.
