Casio unveiled a new awesome G-Shock watch at the CES 2018. The new Casio G-Shock GPR-1000 Rangeman is the world’s first solar-assisted GPS navigation. The new Casio G-Shock Rangeman comes in black (GPR-B1000-1) and sand (GPR-B1000-1B). The Casio G-Shock Rangeman GPRB1000-1 and GPRB1000-1B will be released in April 2018 with the regular list price of $800.

The Casio Rangeman is part of the "Master of G" series of watches designed for use in the most extreme conditions. Rangeman watches incorporate Triple Sensor to measure compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude, and temperature, based on Casio's concept of "Survival Toughness."

In addition to Triple Sensor, the new Casio G-Shock GPR-B1000 is capable of GPS navigation. This is the first G-Shock ever with GPS navigation. The watch collects location data from GPS satellites to display the current location on a route or bearing to a destination, in real-time. The watch also saves track and point data (including longitude/latitude, altitude, and temperature) in memory.

Using Bluetooth, the watch pairs with a smartphone to connect with the Casio G-Shock Connected app, allowing the user to create routes or manage log data in the app. Tracks and point data saved in memory are displayed on a 3D map or as a timeline. The watch also receives data from time servers to keep accurate time anywhere in the world.

The GPR-B1000 features dual wireless and solar charging systems. The GPS functions are usable for approximately 33 hours on a wireless charge of about five hours. Even if the battery level drops below a usable level for GPS while outdoors, solar charging can be used to resume GPS functions for a limited time. The time display is kept powered at all times using solar charging, regardless of the status of GPS functions.

The Casio GPR-B1000 watch collects location data from GPS satellites to display the current location on a route or bearing to a destination, in real-time. Turn on GPS navigation to automatically record tracks with either four-second or one-minute interval recording. (Save up to 20 tracks in memory.)

Casio's new survival G-Shock helps users navigate back to where they started, using track data to display the route back to the starting point and bearing.

The GPR-B1000 delivers toughness in construction and materials, with a dust- and mud-resistant structure and carbon fiber insert band. The watch uses a ceramic case back to support wireless charging and high-sensitivity GPS reception. The case back uses a 2.0 mm thick ceramic material, making the watch shock-resistant and waterproof down to 200 meters. Designed for the ultimate in survival toughness, the GPR-B1000 is the latest evolution of G-Shock. Check now Amazon.com for the availability of the new G-Shock watch.
