TOKYO, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
- Also Exhibits EDIFICE Watch That Links with Smartphone Using Bluetooth(R) V4.0 Presenting High-Performance Analog Watch Concept Models with Casio's Unique Digital Technology -
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., has unveiled two concept models for high-performance analog watches. The first, a G-SHOCK shock-resistant watch, is the world's first watch with a hybrid system for receiving GPS (Global Positioning System) information and time calibration signals. The other is an EDIFICE metal watch that can link with a smartphone using Bluetooth(R) v4.0 technology. Both are on display at Baselworld 2014, starting today in Switzerland.
*As of March 26; based on a Casio survey.
These concept models embody Casio's theme for Baselworld 2014, "Synchronized Timepiece." They offer a higher level of performance and pioneer a new frontier for analog watches by synchronizing with today's GPS and smartphones.
- G-SHOCK GPW-1000, the world's first watch that receives both GPS and Radio Wave signals
The watch is equipped with a high-performance GPS LSI manufactured by Sony Corporation in collaboration with Casio to customize wristwatches. This enables the watch to achieve world-leading low power consumption. By combining Multi-Band 6 technology for receiving time calibration signals transmitted from six stations around the world with the GPS receiving function in a hybrid system, this new G-SHOCK can keep accurate time anywhere in the world. The watch automatically receives radio waves carrying standard time data where available. When they are not available, the watch automatically receives GPS signals and adjusts the time.
- EDIFICE EQB-500 links with smartphone using Bluetooth(R) V4.0
The watch is equipped with ultra-low energy consumption Bluetooth(R) Low Energy LSI ML7105 wireless technology developed jointly with LAPIS Semiconductor Co., Ltd. While displaying time information from a smartphone, the watch allows its world time and alarm functions to be set from the same smartphone.
Both concept models feature Casio's unique Multi-Mission Drive, which enables each watch hand to perform multiple functions. They are also equipped with a new, efficient solar cell and motors that are 26% smaller than before. These advancements have allowed Casio to create high-performance devices in the beautiful form of classic analog watches, while maintaining outstanding readability and guaranteeing ease of use.
