Casio is using Baselworld as a platform for its new 3-Way time syncing technology, which is featuring in its watch offering.

The Connected Engine 3-Way module claims to deliver the world’s first 3-Way time sync system and it will be rolled out as a key component in the G-Shock and Oceanus lines.

To realise a fully automated timepiece that always keeps accurate time anywhere in the world, the Connected Engine 3-Way module employs a 3-Way time sync system that receives both radio wave and GPS satellite time calibration signals, while also connecting to time servers by pairing with a smartphone.

Casio has combined this self-adjusting 3-Way time sync system with technology that self-updates the watch’s internal data on daylight savings time (DST) and time zones when paired with a smartphone.

The module also includes the self-charging Tough Solar system, which needs less light than a fluorescent lamp. The resulting Connected Engine 3-Way module will enable Casio watches to deliver even greater reliability and performance.

It employs a GPS signal receiving system that consumes just 25% of the power of a conventional GPS system. In turn, this improvement enables the rechargeable battery to be downsized.

Alongside its new technology, Casio will be launching its G-Steel (pictured) and MR-G, part of the G-Shock line, an F1-inspired Edifice and its WSD-F20 smart outdoor watch.
