The solar battery, case and bracelet are made of stainless steel, Bluetooth for setting from a smartphone - for some it sounds strange, but if you have once set up a Casio watch, you will instantly understand the beauty of this function.
It seems that Casio is trying to grope the right way to use Bluetooth in a normal watch. While the manufacturers of gadgets seem to be crazy about smart watches, the inventors of G-shock cross protected models with Bluetooth modules, look at the reaction of the public, move on. What have you done in Casio? Several models with event indicators on the smartphone, that is, a message has arrived, a notification appears on the small screen - it is impossible to read, but you will be notified. There was a GBA-400 model capable of controlling the player on a smartphone, activating a program for identifying tracks. Explicit experiment, but moving in the right direction.
Casio G-Shock GBA-400-1A watch overview
The thing is that Casio smart watches with Bluetooth work for a year and a half, not a day and a half, like the Apple Watch and other similar gadgets. It is very captivating. The company does not calm down and experiment further, this time not with G-shock, but with the calm Edifice ruler, beloved by white-collar workers all over the world - while you are not a top manager, you can and should wear Edifice. Classic design with sporty notes, you can see the time in two cities at once, but if you don’t need a chronograph, please buy the model with the EF-121 or EF-129 number. Reliable, simple, stylish. And inexpensive. Although a reservation is needed here, when they began to actively advertise the expensive G-shock (well, how expensive, about 100,000 rubles, in general, the basic level of Swiss watches), the public was worried. Is this some kind of “shock” for such money? How is this possible?!! Meanwhile, some models of Edifice, G-shock for the Japanese market have always cost so much - two, three, four, or even five thousand dollars (or even more). Everything depended on the materials, functionality, there were limited series. I hope that now the expensive G-shock already surprise no one - for example, the model MRG-G1000 costs about $ 2500, and it's worth it.
