Casio has been doing several interesting stuff lately. With their newest Edifice model they began toying with the idea of an analog view that connects to your phone and may set itself to any timezone immediately. This decision to focus on function more than OLEDs is a good one and the G-Steel B100 is the latest example of this particular move.
The B100 is really a slim, rugged watch with a multi-layered architecture designed to look cool/withstand huge abuse. Nearly every feature of this view is modified on the phone, in the time/world-times to alarms and timers.
The dial at midday shows the current day of 7 days as well as function activity. A sundial at 6 oâclock shows an additional time zone while a small call shows AM/PM for that zone. There exists a date window at 5 oâclock.
When you want to swap timezones you open the app and place things up the way you want them. You can also swap between current zone as well as the second zone instantly, the fingers snapping into place like magic.
That, as they say, is that. The view also has a âfind phoneâ feature that will lets it buzz your phone as well as the entire watch is set to various atomic clocks via the Internet, ensuring youâll certainly not go out of sync. Finally, it includes a pleasant, bright LED light at the bottom from the face which lets you light some misconception quite nicely. It charges through solar through the front crystal.
Sometimes a watch is just a watch. May this watch sense your ways? Locate you on a raft in the center of the ocean? Tell you to inhale? No . But it can swap among time zones seamlessly and wake up you up in some far-off location. Casioâs simplicity in this case is the strength, a strength born associated with not being all things to all individuals. While this watch is almost an analog accident in a digital world, itâs nice to see that some factors stay the same.
