The new men’s GSTB300 watch is the first G-Steel watch with a front light button, which adopts a new ‘Carbon Core Guard’ structure.
This, Casio said, delivers superior shock resistance by leveraging the lightness and outstanding rigidity of carbon fiber.
The model also boasts a sleek, tough look with a stainless-steel bezel, black dial and polyurethane band.
It also uses solar power charging technology and the battery indicator at the 6 o’clock position, designed to evoke a brake disk, shows the remaining battery power.
When it comes to features, users can expect automatic time adjustment via bluetooth when paired with G-Shock’s Connected App.
The watch also offers world time setting for over 300 cities, as well as various alarm and countdown timer settings.
There is also a high-luminosity full auto double LED light and 200m water resistance, with the watch coming in at $330 when it is released next month.
