The New Casio G-Shock G-Lide GBX100 (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
Casio G-Shock unveils three, all-new G-LIDE Timepieces, the watch of choice among the world’s top surfers. The new GBX100 models come with the ability to display information required by surfers (high tide and low tide times and levels) and use the newly introduced G-Shock Move App to link with a smartphone and access a host of mobile link functions.
The full-time smartphone link comes with new functions like Tide point settings at approximately 3,300 locations around the world, a step tracker, training plans that can be tailored to your workout goals, and more.
The new GBX100 line-up takes its styling cues from G-Shock ’s octagonal case shape and arrives with a blue, gray or white band. The updated case has a wide face design and a new, high-resolution Memory in Pixel (MIP) LCD display that further enhances user experience. Surfers can quickly access standard functions like Tide Graph, Moon Data, high and low tide times, and more with improved visibility.
The enhanced display renders important information such as tide and moon data about current conditions at a glance, which, in combination with a collection of training measurement functions (distance, speed, pace, lap, pitch), provides plenty of support for surfers who meet new challenges around the globe.
The latest models possess premium design enhancements as well, like resin and metal double layer bezel made to withstand the impact of underwater rocks. The forged stainless-steel bezel cover features hairline and honed finishes to uphold the look of premium toughness. In addition, the Casio G-Shock GBX100’s soft urethane band has slits to allow for the draining of water and sweat for improved comfort.
The new timepieces also come equipped with G-Shock technology including:
· ISO 200M Water Resistance
· Shock Resistant
· Super Illuminator
· World Time (300 cities with the G-Shock Move App)
· Stopwatch and Countdown Timer
· 4 Alarms
· Full Auto Calendar
The new Casio G-Shock GBX100 timepieces will retail for $160. The GBX100-1 will be available for purchase mid-June, and the GBX100-2 and GBX100-7 will be available for purchase mid-July at select G-Shock retailers, G-Shock Soho Store and gshock.com.
