Casio’s latest G-Steel has been made lighter and stronger by protecting the watch with a Carbon Core Guardstructure that improves shock resistance and rigidity.
The GST-B300 is also the first G-Steel watch with a front button.
G-Shock has used carbon fiber-reinforced resin to strengthen the center case along with the front and side button guards.
On the dial, a battery indicator at the 6 o’clock position has been designed to look like a brake disk with the level of battery power shown with an arrow pointer and a curved red bar.
That power is constantly topped-up using Casio’s Touch Solar charging system.
Function-wise, it has world time settings for over 300 cities, various alarms, stopwatch and countdown features.
It can also talk to a dedicated smartphone app via Bluetooth so it is always kept perfectly accurate.
The GST-B300 goes on sale in June for around $450.
