Casio’s coming G-LIDE series, GLS100, is new product designed tough for use in harsh winter conditions with timing features useful for competitive sporting.
These moderately priced watches have a new look, which Casio tells us is inspired by sport goggles, and will be available initially in four colorway options. Two of the watches (khaki and black/green) will have CORDURA® straps and two (black-blue and white) will have synthetic leather straps. The GLS100 products are distinguished by their extreme resistance to cold temperature (-20 degrees Celsius) and extra visible digital readout which at night benefits from Casio’s “super-illuminator” LED with after-glow.
Other features of note: G-Shock’s trademark water resistance to 660 feet and extreme shock resistance, double stopwatches with split, countdown timer, five alarms (one with snooze), 12 or 24 hour (military) time display, full auto-calander with day and date, and battery life of three years.
First release of this series will be in Japan (November 2012) with a price of 13,500 Yen. This blog expects that this watch will find it’s way into general distribution and will be available in the USA for around $100.
