g-shock_gls-8900cm sports watches blue red gray camouflage

G-Lide GLS-8900CM Camouflage G-Shock – Winter 2014
g-shock_gls-8900cm camo camouflage watch blue red grayNow comes another wave of camouflage patterned digital watches from G-Shock. These new colorways add to the wide selection of GLS-8900 products that are designed to appeal to sports fashion oriented buyers that can benefit from the dual stopwatch feature, tide data, and –20ºC low temperature resistance that these watches provide.
Other features, such as auto “super illuminator,” world time, full auto calendar, and two year battery life expectancy continue to keep the watch a strong value in todays market.
Now, it might occur to you that the features are a little discordant – in what situation would one need low temperature resistance and surfing (tide) information at the same time? But for that one time that such a combination would occur (I, for the life of me, have not yet come up with one), you would have to smile and think, “what amazing insight these guys have!” Continue reading

Their collaboration with G-Shock recently yielded a limited edition DW5600 wristwatch that is rather conservative and stealthy compared to their normal fare. As is always the case, the watch does not introduce any new technology; its base is the standard DW5600 with F.C.R.B.s logo in the display, their distinctive camo branding on the packaging and the dial. MSRP is $189 and the watch evidently was soon sold out after its May 24, 2014 release. Continue reading

The No Operating System Watch —— G-Shock GBA-400

gba400_g-shock_smartwatch gba-400-1a gba-400-2a gba-400-4a gba-400-1a9 Other reviewers have praised Casio for the simplicity and ease of operation of the latest Bluetooth watch to carry G-Shock branding: GBA-400. Staying true to their legacy trade, the G-Shock people, smartly doing what they do best, have designed the product with incredible shock, wear, and water resistance. casio g-shock smart phone g'mix app gba-400They stuffed in a load of features but managed to avoid an operating system. These watches control a few of the important operations of a smartphone, providing music remote control and telephony notifications. And that is it – no camera, microphone or gesturing an Android game. It would be a huge stretch to call them smartwatches. Compared to whiz-bang Apple, Sony, LG, Samsung, Motorola, et al, the GBA-400 comes off looking only slightly smarter than an oily canvas sack of cotter pins. Continue reading

When is a Baby-G not a Baby-G?
This is a trip down the scary path of rebranding. baby_g-shock_s-seriesMaybe it is because “Baby-G” is such a poor choice of brand name to do business as, that Casio wanders into the unknown. But S series sounds a little more like it could reference something besides infants (which is what I think of when the word “baby” is used) or very small things (like when seeing a Smart for the first time, “oh, look at this adorable little baby car”).g-shock_s-series_2014 I’m figuring that Casio has determined that there are enough women who do not buy their stuff because it has a huge logo that says, “Baby-G” on it, that might now be interested in the same product when its huge logo is instead, “G-Shock.” Evidently in the “S series,” the S stands for small.

In what is becoming a yearly summertime mini-event, Casio is treating us to another group of disparite hodge-podge colorways that live up to their moniker, Crazy Colors. As far as the technology in these timepieces, there is nothing new to report. Based on G8900, Ga100, and GA110 designs, these watches behind the colorful package are familiar stuff. Continue reading

Fake G-Shock Watches

Click image above to read full post

Proliferation of counterfeit watches is increasing and acceptance of it (amazon, eBay, et al) is abominable. These examples are part of a full catalog of G-Shock look-alikes. These rip-off artists not only do such a comprehensive job of covering all the best sellers, they do so with impunity on a full blown website – features, benefits, pictures, company profile, the works. It is not this blogs responsibility to police this illicit activity but it sure is important to us that none of our readers get sucked into a bad buy. Don’t buy this shit, folks.
