Garmin Takes On The Luxury Watch Market With These GPS Smartwatches

In the Army, a specialist is a soldier who specializes in a certain trade. It works well for the Army, but we not sure if will work just as well for smartwatches. Regardless, that appears to be where Garmin is headed with its new line of MARQ series of GPS smartwatches. Altogether, there are 5 “specialist” smartwatches, namely MARQ Aviator, MARQ Driver, MARQ Captain, MARQ Expedition and MARQ Athlete. Each has its own distinctive design, features and functionality.

Casio Celebrates 40 Years Of Gundam With G-Shock Collection

Don’t ask me why is this coming out of China instead of Japan where both CASIO G-Shock and cult mecha anime Gundam, the granddaddy of Japanese mecha, originated. Anyways, here it is, a collection of Gundam-themed G-Shock timepieces dished out by CASIO to celebrate Gundam’s 40th anniversary this year. The collection consists of four G-Shock wrist watches, each with color(s) and designs inspired by highly recognizable mecha/mecha guises, including RX-78-2 Gundam, MS-06S Char’s Zaku II, RX-0 Unicorn Gundam, and RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee.

Casio G-Shock’s New GRAVITYMASTER Is All Carbon Monocoque

CASIO G-Shock is not closely associated with motorsports and aviation, but here it is, the CASIO G-Shock GRAVITYMASTER GWRB1000-1A1 Watch, a timepiece with materials inspired by motorsports and designed with aviation professionals in mind. CASIO did not make the association (with aviation) out of thin air. This beautiful timepiece sports an all-new carbon monocoque structure – a structural system closely associated with aircraft and automobile construction (which is essentially an exoskeleton of sort), and rust resistant titanium parts which includes a glove-friendly, all-new button structure comprising of four large titanium buttons.

CASIO G-Shock ‘Pure Gold’ Anniversary Watch Has A Shocking $70K Price Tag

CASIO G-Shock is no stranger in giving gold treatment to its G-Shock timepieces, but to date, those gold treatments were, well, just another color range. Nothing even remotely shocking, really, if you ask me. That was until the exquisite Gold Hammertone variety came along, asking for $6K in return. That created quite a stir in the G-Shock community, but now there’s one G-Shock timepiece that overshadows even the Hammertone.

CASIO G-Shock Celebrates 25 Years Of Baby-G With A Special Baby-G Model

This year, CASIO G-Shock celebrates 25 years of Baby-G. Yes, already. Time sure the hell flies. When Baby-G was first launched in 1994, it aimed to create a more feminine version of the G-Shock with all the toughness of G-Shock, but in a smaller, slimmer form. It was a hit. Even as a hot-blooded young man, I was drawn to it. I grabbed my first (and last) pair sometime in 1996 as a gift to myself for getting my driving license (hey, we all need an excuse or two to buy, right?). Baby-G was also the watch that made me realize that small watches ain’t for me, hence the last for me. Continue reading CASIO G-Shock Celebrates 25 Years Of Baby-G With A Special Baby-G Model

CASIO Debuts G-Shock With 1983 Case in Full Metal Paired With Resin Band

Metal is a symbol of toughness. Surprisingly though, Casio tough watch line, G-Shock, did not employ metal in its classic square face G-Shock wrist watches until of late. The Casio GMWB5000-1 All-Metal G-Shock is the latest addition Metal G-Shock to be included in the watchmaker’s catalog and it is the first in the collection to combine a metal bezel and resin band. The result is, as you can see, looking very promising. G-Shock is no stranger to colorful watches. Gold accents aren’t new either, but metal in silver or gold is fairly new to the Japanese watchmaker. Continue reading CASIO Debuts G-Shock With 1983 Case in Full Metal Paired With Resin Band
