Casio G-Shock GW-B5600

When it comes to EDC watches, ruggedness never goes out of style. The fact that so many EDCers still rock a G-Shock to this day is proof. But even if you want that retro design, you shouldn't have to compromise on everyday performance. With Casio's new GW-B5600, you get everything you could want from a G-Shock and more, thanks to its improved mix of materials and added Bluetooth compatibility. This updated version brings a classic silhouette into the present day as one of the smartest tough digital watches you can EDC.

Aside from the iconic square display and the illuminated LED backlight that you’ve come to expect from a G-Shock, you’ll also get a watch that’s lighter and smarter than ever before. This is thanks to a new band made from a combination of stainless steel and composite resin. Together those materials result in a digital watch that’s shock resistant and waterproof up to 200 meters. You probably won't ever find yourself in a situation that this watch can’t handle.

Aside from its tough exterior, the GW-B5600 boasts accurate timekeeping thanks to some added technology inside. Multi Band 6 technology automatically synchronizes with six calibration signals around the world to ensure accuracy. The GW-B5600 also features Bluetooth compatibility, allowing you to connect to your smartphone for a few extra features. You'll get access to reminders, a battery level indicator for your phone, and even a built-in phone finder. You also won’t have to worry about replacing the batteries thanks to the Tough Solar system, equipped with a durable solar that can charge even off of indoor lighting.

A good watch is a staple of any person's carry, and since 1983 the G-Shock has been the go-to of many EDCers. With the GW-B5600, Casio has outdone itself as you’d be hard pressed to find a better all-around watch for the price. If you’ve been looking for something that combines smart, thoughtful tech with a rugged, practical build then you should check this watch out for yourself by clicking the link below.

Casio G-Shock DW-5900BB-1 Blackout

With a 35-year legacy behind the brand, the G-Shock has earned its place as an everyday staple from its inception as a watch designed to never break. Every generation of the watch pushes the envelope of design and tech, but for this historic anniversary, Casio have melded past and present in the new DW-5900BB-1. Taking an iconic design from G-Shock's early days and giving it the ultimate tactical aesthetic, it's a great nod to history while having the design and construction to live long into the future.

The first thing to notice about the DW-5900BB-1 is its face—this isn't a model or design commonly seen as a G-Shock reissue. The pawprint-like design in its original colors hearkens back to the first G-Shock, the DW-5000, while the three subdials gave a glimpse into the later, insanely popular DW-6900 design. In this new blackout colorway, however, the design takes on a more tactical tone, with the subdials more reminiscent of night-vision goggles than the retrofuturistic original.

On the inside, the DW-5900BB-1 comes with all the staples you would expect from a modern G-Shock. The rugged case and band come in resin, the former of which is sealed and rated shock- and waterproof to 200 meters. The usual battery of timekeeping functions are present, including world time, a stopwatch, timer, and 5 daily alarms, rounded off by the signature electro-luminescent backlight.

Whether used as an aesthetic accessory or as a truly tough timepiece, there's no questioning that the G-Shock is a watch for the ages. Pick up the new DW-5900BB-1 from Amazon from the link below, and be sure to check out the rest of the anniversary blackout series too.

Casio G-SHOCK GBA800 with Step Tracker

As technology pushes the size of everyday gadgets smaller and smaller, they're easier than ever to carry. For example, fitness bands are finding their way onto more wrists as a convenient way for people to stay fit. And while it used to mean that old-fashioned watches got pushed aside in favor of smartwatches and fitness trackers, watchmakers are starting to get in on the action. With Casio's new GBA800 Step Tracker, the G-SHOCK line brings its muscle to the modern day with rugged features to keep you on top of your fitness game as well as your day-to-day.

With decades of reliable performance behind it, a G-SHOCK watch is one of the best tools you can use for your active day. The GBA800 is no different. It's got the shock-resistant, ultra-rugged case that's become the brand's design signature, giving the watch an iconic style while protecting its internals to the tune of 200 meters, a rating usually reserved for high-performance dive watches. Its analog-digital quartz movement comes with a solid complement of features, including a stopwatch, countdown timer, day and date display, and push-button illumination of its dial and display.

But it's the tech department that gives the GBA800 its edge. A built-in 3-axis accelerometer tracks your movement and gives you displays at the 1 and 6 o'clock positions to give you data at a glance, helping motivate you to make that extra push to hit your goals. This data then pairs via Bluetooth with the G-SHOCK Connected app for smartphones to help track and analyze your progress, while adding other features like auto-time adjustment and a locator for your phone.

Whether adding one of the most rugged watches to your EDC or making the first move towards a healthier lifestyle, the G-SHOCK GBA800 is with you every step of the way. Pick up the black colorway from Amazon at the link below.

Casio G-STEEL Street Vintage Collection

Casio are best known for their G-Shock series of watches, some of the most rugged timepieces you can buy. And while the style and construction lend themselves to a tough and tactical style, G-Shocks won't be the first watch you pick out of your drawer for more formal affairs. That is, until now. Casio have debuted the G-STEEL collection, a series of watches that combine the classic look of leather with the heavy-duty G-Shock heritage.

True to their overbuilt roots, the G-STEEL watches feature Tough Leather, a unique hybrid of synthetic leather and resin. It's designed to be stylish and soft to the touch just like regular leather, but able to withstand abrasions over time in addition to water resistance.

As for the watches themselves, each model comes with the latest and greatest G-SHOCK technology, including a Tough Solar battery, shock resistance, and 200 meters of water resistance. For evening visibility the dial features Neo-brite lume on its hands and markers, while an automatic double LED gives extra illumination when needed. Adding to the 12/24-hour format analog and digital displays are 48-city world time, daily alarms, and a stopwatch and countdown timer, all in a robust 52.4 mm case.

Casio's first foray into “tough formal” is definitely a collection to watch. You can pick up the light brown-strapped GSTS120L-1B model from Amazon at the link below, and be sure to check out the rest of the models on the G-Shock website.
