New G-Shock Range­man watch with So­lar As­sisted GPS - a world first!

Adventure - - #209 -

Brand new from the G-Shock Mas­ter of G Se­ries, comes a new Triple Sen­sor Range­man model en­gi­neered for those en­coun­ter­ing harsh con­di­tions on land. A pow­er­ful body that is shock re­sis­tant, dust re­sis­tant, mud re­sis­tant, low tem­per­a­ture re­sis­tant, and wa­ter re­sis­tant comes packed with func­tions that make it the first G-SHOCK ca­pa­ble of GPS nav­i­ga­tion. GPS and a dig­i­tal com­pass com­bine to guide you to your des­ti­na­tions, while the watch tracks your routes and stores way­point in­for­ma­tion in mem­ory, mak­ing this the per­fect tool for sur­vival ac­tiv­i­ties. A dual charg­ing sys­tem sup­ports both wire­less charg­ing and so­lar charg­ing. GPS func­tions can be used for 33 hours af­ter about five hours of wire­less charg­ing. When the bat­tery reaches a level where GPS is no longer sup­ported, it can be tem­po­rar­ily re­stored by ex­pos­ing the watch to high in­ten­sity light for so­lar charg­ing. Con­nect­ing over Bluetooth® to the G-SHOCK Con­nected app run­ning on a phone greatly ex­pands GPS func­tion per­for­mance, al­low­ing you to cre­ate routes, dis­play your routes on 3D maps and more. The re­sult is a to­tally new type of G-shock that is de­signed for ad­vanced func­tion and built for ul­ti­mate tough­ness. Fea­tures:
