Casio Edifice EQB-1000 Watches

This new high-spec, super-slim model with phone linking capabilities is the latest addition to the EDIFICE lineup of function-packed metal chronographs that are always pushing the limits of timekeeping.
Bluetooth® Smartphone Link, a Tough Solar power system that enables charging even by exposure to fluorescent light, and multi-hand chronograph timekeeping, all come packed into a case that is a mere 8.9 mm thin. New mounting technology combines with component and structure innovations to create a case that is about 30% thinner than the EDIFICE EQB-800 Phone Linking module.

Enjoy our Edifice EQB-1000 Watch Review

Of all the “smart” line  –  EQB-1000 is the only series that caught me. Nothing fundamentally new, but the watch has its feature, namely a very thin case – it will be a decisive factor in case of a difficult choice. There are only two moments which I would correct – timer and backlight. At its cost of $500, it is an excellent option for the hands’ fans with a “smart” and advanced caliber. Read Full Review →

An Accurate Time System automatically establishes a Bluetooth® connection with a smartphone 4 times a day to update current time settings. A special smartphone app also lets you select from among approximately 300 World Time cities, and a dial at 9 o’clock shows the current time in your currently selected World Time city. A sub-dial even indicates a.m. and p.m. Times. Dual Dial World Time keeps you on time all the time no matter where you happen to be, and is just the thing for anyone whose travel takes them across different time zones. This and other power-hungry features are kept operating by a Tough Solar power system.
The stopwatch has memory for up to 200 1/1000-second lap time records, which can be sent to a phone as required. The watch’s last lap differential indicator even indicates the difference between the time of the last lap recorded and the current lap.
A thin configuration without any sacrifice of function makes this new model the new flagship of the EDIFICE lineup.
