Casio has unveiled its latest G-Shock models for BLE connected G-Steel timepieces for men.
The new G-Steel line includes a silver stainless steel (GSTB100D-1A), a black resin with a silver stainless steel bezel (GSTSB100-1A), and a special edition black resin with a black carbon fibre bezel (GSTB100X-1A). Each model features a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology designed to be paired with smartphones using the G-Shock connected app. This allows the user to utilise the Phone Finder feature, change time zones, check the battery life, and set a timer or an alarm from the app. The watches also boast a solar-powered charging capability, a new functional face design with a “turbine inspired” level indicator disc and a super LED light for maximum visibility.
The special edition GSTB100X-1A model comes with premium features such as a sapphire crystal, a neo-matte black coating on the metal loop and a forged buckle. The particular watch also uses the nano-alloy technology and features a Nanoalloy bezel, which is specially moulded with 40 layers of carbon sheets to form a uniquely lightweight, shock resist structure.
The G-Steel watches will be available at G-Shock stores and gshock.com beginning in October 2017, while the special edition GSTB100X-1A will be available in the same month at select authorised jewellers.
