Casio G-Shock GPR-B1000 Watches

About the Watch in short. The largest and most massive jishoks to date are 60.3 × 57.7 × 20.2 mm. This watch represents the Rangeman range, which means it was created to survive in the harshest conditions. Dust and dirt-resistant housing, resistance to severe frosts and unsurpassed impact resistance – GPR-B1000 will become a reliable assistant in any situation. The strap is additionally reinforced with carbon inserts. A triple sensor [barometer / altimeter, thermometer and digital compass] will help you navigate in an unknown area and predict the weather, and the GPS navigation function will make it possible to track your route without using smartphones and other gadgets – a separate GPS receiver is installed here. For GPS navigation, a wireless charging function with a ceramic back cover and an uninterrupted operation reserve of up to 33 hours at maximum load is provided. The Bluetooth function allows you to connect to smartphones and intuitively configure all the functions of the watch. In navigation mode, you can keep a log of visited points on the ground – up to 60 records with information about the exact coordinates, time, altitude, air temperature, etc. A map of visited points is displayed directly on a new generation digital display with separate independent pixels. Sapphire crystal [not scratched], solar power, powerful backlighting and a basic set of features – the GPR-B1000 can be called the most “sophisticated” G-Shock-s at the moment.

Solar Power. None-Stop – A solar panel converts even weak illumination from fluorescent lighting into electric power. A rechargeable battery with a large power storage capacity supports stable operation of various functions with high electricity consumption. You never have to worry about the battery running down because it’s a solar battery. Casio watches with solar technology, receive thermal and electrical energy that recharges the watch batteries through solar panels on the face of the watch.

G-Shock Connected App. This is the basic application for connecting and communicating with a Bluetooth(R) v4.0 enabled CASIO watch.
Pairing your watch with a smartphone enables use of a variety of different Mobile Link functions that greatly enhance the smartphone experience.
The G-SHOCK Connected app also simplifies certain watch operations by letting you perform them on your phone screen.

GPS Accuracy. Prompt display of the correct time worldwide. Reception of current location positioning and time data from GPS satellites. Time zone determination through automatic analysis of positioning information. Determination of the current location’s Daylight Saving Time status and automatic display of the correct time.

– no hourly time signal
– long charging
