Casio Edifice EQB-900 Watches

Representative of the latest generation of “smart” Edifice with Bluetooth-synchronization. The whole charm of the model is the wireless data exchange with a smartphone – all the watch functions are configured directly from the phone screen in a special application. Engineers did a good job on the size of the case and achieved a significant reduction – more than 2 mm compared to other EQB models. The bracelet consists of solid cast links – this design is stronger and looks more solid than usual. Another feature of the series is the presence of LED dial illumination. The world time function works for more than 300 cities around the world, and the time of the second time zone is displayed in the window at 6 o’clock. The watch has a solar battery, which means it does not require periodic replacement.

PROs

+ the timer is particularly cool – watching the second hand tick BACKWARDS is kind of… psychedelic
+ is also very easy to read, particularly elapsed minutes

CONs
– this does eat power faster than many other solar chronos
– the smartphone link app is bad

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

These new additions to the EDIFICE metal lineup feature chronograph timekeeping along with advanced functions for linking with your smartphone. These EQB-900 Series delivers the same accurate timekeeping, multi-functionality, and simple operation as EDIFICE smartphone link series models of the past, along with two additional new features.
The first new feature is a high-brightness LED light source between 6 and 7 o’clock, which brightly illuminates the face for easy reading both night and day.
The second feature is a compact, lightweight configuration. The case width and thickness are the smallest of all the EDIFICE smartphone link models. The cases of these models are 2.3 mm smaller in diameter, 2.1 mm thinner, and approximately 25% lighter than the EQB-500D, which was the first EDIFICE smartphone link model. Despite the smaller size, the visual impact of the hour markers and dials have been enhanced to create bold designs.
