Things about to change with the new Casio Edifice version. The EQB-1000D-1A, which jams the tech we’ve seen in connected G-Shocks into a new, slimline case.
For the brand new EQB-1000D, Casio has retained the same connected characteristic set it has used in other Bluetooth-enabled Edifice watches. When you connect the watch with your cellphone, it’s easy to alter international time zones, daylight saving hours, and to set the fitting on arms. To facilitate connecting the watch with your cellphone, Casio has the Edifice Connected app, which also has a telephone finder feature, however sadly doesn’t have any in-app alarm alteration.
Despite the linked features and Bluetooth on board, the Edifice EQB-1000D doesn’t want charging every day. It makes use of Casio’s excellent Tough Solar function the place charged; the internal battery will final for five months without consequent exposure to light. Until you keep it in a box, the battery will nearly always be charging anyway because it takes energy from not only sunlight, however from low-light and artificial sources including florescent too.
Previous Edifice related watches have been stout affairs, with the all-metal body dominating wrists. For the EQB-1000D, Casio has slimmed it down by 30% contrast to the popular counterpart— EQB-800, to a more reasonable 8.9mm thick. This is the top-of-the-vary model too, and to additional differentiate it from the others, the face is encased with sapphire crystal for scratch resistance. The watch is also water-resistant to 100 meters.
The sapphire crystal is ready inside a stainless steel body connected to a metal link bracelet, while the face has sub-dials for the chronograph, world time, and for exhibiting a.m. and p.m. too. This can be a sporty-wanting watch, just like different connected Edifice watches. Casio will release the EQB-1000D during the summer for $300.
