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

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.

Japanese Pop Culture Watch – GA400

one piece g-shock ga400 anime japan culture watch
The youth of the Orient are as hip as it gets. With a blend of all the pop culture from around the world, the Japanese and South Koreans enjoy a richness of fashion, technology, and the arts that no previous generation has experienced. Then they make it their own and from their heritage they add legacy layers that take culture to even higher levels.. certainly beyond anything going on here in the States or Europe. It’s a delight to witness.

Aviation Series G-Shock Watches

ga1000 g-shock aviation compass 2014
Casio has hit on a winning formula and they are running with it. All analog dial (you know, sweeping hands, subdials, and, except for the newest model GA1000 and a couple of the older, discontinued models, no digital numeric readouts), round case, thick, chunky, and with lots of nifty features, the Aviation Series (aka, Sky Cockpit, Gravity Defyer, Gravity Master) watches appeal to more prospective buyers than you’d expect. Amazon is doing a brisk business with a few of these products. Continue reading
