G-Shock and Futura collaborate on new timepiece design

by Edwin - on May 20th, 2016

While some of us prefer not to wear a watch for the very obvious reason that the smartphone more or less gets the job done already, here we are with another timepiece that is extremely pleasing on the eyes – the GDX6900FTR-1 timepiece. This is one watch that was birth in commemoration of Casio’s G-Shock third collaboration launch with legendary American Graffiti Artist Futura, and you can be sure that this is not only a mechanical device that tells the time, it also does a whole lot more than that by conveying the message to whoever sees such a watch on your wrist that you are someone with plenty of taste in your fashion sense, in addition to appreciating time that you would love to keep it accurate and be punctual always.

Outdoor lovers might spring for the new Casio Pro Trek

by Edwin

casio-pro-trekIf you are going to head out to the great outdoors this summer, then you can be sure that it would be in your best interest to make sure that you are well equipped and prepared to get the job done – that is, having the right tools and what not. While city slickers would rely on their smartphones or tablets to tell the time (or a smartwatch), those who prefer to rough it out with nature would know the value of an actual watch, as opposed to relying on a smartphone to tell the time. Of course, if all else fails, common sense will let you know when is day and when night falls. This spring, Casio America, Inc. has expanded its rugged and versatile PRO TREK line of outdoor timepieces with the brand new PRW3510Y-1.

Zub Zirc lets you tell the time differently

by Edwin

zub-zircIf you have noticed, more and more people in your circle of friends are beginning to wear smartwatches, regardless of the brand. Of course, the Apple Watch would come to mind for many, but just because it hails from Cupertino, this does not mean that it is the best smartwatch around. Well, if you would like to somewhat join the crowd but not put your whole faith in a dedicated smartwatch, then perhaps the $129 Zub Zirc might be worth checking out.

It basically lets you think of time in a different manner, where you can choose for it to show the time in Black 20 or Blue Glow-In-The-Dark. There are different functions that should be considered to be staples for a modern timepiece, such as an Alarm, Chronograph, Date and Time. This is one timepiece that presents time in a more intuitive way, thanks to the clever use of linear and graphic representations. The visual mass will increase as time passes, which lends weight to an ephemeral and abstract concept. Hours will be shown as a familiar analog clock face, whereas the horizontal row counts minutes while a small window keeps track of seconds. It will feature a 0.8″ wide polyurethane band and boasts of an alarm mode as well as a chronograph mode as mentioned earlier.

by Edwin

casio-edifice-solarCasio America, Inc. is more than pleased to announce that they have yet another timepiece that will hit the market, where it will fall under the EDIFICE banner.

Casio reveals trio of new timepieces under G-Shock Master of G line

by Edwin

g-shock-rescue-redWhen it comes to owning a watch, many of the younger ones out there do seem to make more use of their phones as a timepiece than wearing a watch, where the thing on your wrist ends up more as a fashion accessory than a time-keeping device – unless of course, they decide to settle for a smartwatch like the Apple Watch, of course. Well, having a good watch is always a boon, since you can never quite tell just when you would need to tell the time when you are caught out in a thunderstorm and are soaking wet. Surely the average smartphone is not going to last in the showers, but Casio’s G-Shock range is going to shrug off all that water without missing a beat. Here we are with word that the Japanese firm will be introducing three new timepieces in a striking Rescue Red color theme for the G-Shock Master of G line.

Phone Charging Atomic Alarm Clock gets the time right all the time

by Edwin

phone-charging-atomic-alarm-clockHave you ever wondered whether people are more time-conscious, as in punctual, back in the days when there were no smartphones or mobile phones? All you need to do is to agree on the time and place to meet, and both parties will most of the time, turn up early. Having said that, the smartphone revolution has allowed us to be more flexible with our schedules, and hence, appointments are not kept all that punctual any more. Perhaps you need something more accurate in your life, like the $49.95 Phone Charging Atomic Alarm Clock.

The Phone Charging Atomic Alarm Clock is an always-accurate alarm clock which will also double up as a smartphone charger, where it will show off the time in 1.25″ high numbers with an illuminating backlight that allows it to be clearly read at night. With the use of colorful LEDs, the day/date, temperature, humidity, and moon phases will also be shown with 0.75″ high letters and numbers, offering precise time across the entire lower 48 United States, while the clock’s radio receiver synchronizes with NIST-F1, the United States’ atomic clock which will never gain or lose a second in 60 million years. Devices that hook up via an existing USB cable to the 1-amp port on the side allows for overnight charging, and it comes with automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment, alarm, and a 12/24 hour time format.
