Enjoy Japanese Unique Features in GLX-S5600!

Nostalgic color inspired by surf beach.
Pale blue (GLX-S5600-3) and pale orange (GLX-S5600-4). Under the theme of nostalgic beach, we adopted a fade color that goes well with surf fashion. The faded tones and matte textures create a cool, retro feel. Two models, basic black (GLX-S5600-1) and off-white (GLX-S5600-7), are also available.

Compact & Slim.
Compared to the regular size GLX-5600, the case size (horizontal) has been reduced to about 94%. The thickness has been reduced and the fit has been improved. It is easy to wear even for women and people with thin arms, expanding the range of coordination.

Biomass Plastic.
Biomass plastic is used for the bezel and band. By using renewable organic resources as raw materials, we contribute to reducing environmental impact. We have created a symbiosis with nature by uniting the thoughts of everyone who loves the sea.

Various functions useful for surf riding.
In addition to the shock-resistant structure that can be used hard and water resistance of 20 bar, it is equipped with tide graph and moon data. Useful for marine sports such as surfing.

Super illuminator for easy viewing even in dark places
