The G-SHOCK RANGEMAN GPRH1000: A Watch for the Ultimate Adventurer

The G-SHOCK RANGEMAN GPRH1000: A Watch for the Ultimate Adventurer

The G-SHOCK line has repeatedly proven itself to be a watch that can easily handle the most demanding environments in the world. With the release of the Master of G RANGEMAN GPRH1000, G-SHOCK further elevates the line from being a rugged, reliable watch to a fully-featured exploration, analysis, and adventure tool.


Seek Adventure with Confidence

Whether you’re trekking in the mountains, running in the city, biking in the countryside, or swimming in the oceans, the RANGEMAN GPRH1000 has you covered using its six sensors and built-in GPS to measure and record your data. With its built-in GPS, you can measure your position, distance, and speed and track your route on a map. You can also view your location's sunrise and sunset data, tide graph, and world time. The RANGEMAN GPRH1000 also has a compass that can help you navigate the terrain and a barometer that can alert you of changes in the weather.

The Toughest Fitness Tracker You’ll Ever Own

The RANGEMAN GPRH1000 supports nine activity modes, including trekking, running, biking, swimming, and gym workouts, ensuring no movement is wasted. With its optical sensor, you can measure your heart rate and blood oxygen level and adjust your pace and intensity accordingly. Using the CASIO Watches App to link the watch to your smartphone via Bluetooth, you can analyze your health metrics using algorithms from Polar, a company with a well-established reputation for heart rate-focused training analysis. These include all the necessary information that you’d want from a fitness tracker, including VO2 max calculations, cardio load, and calories burned. You can even link your data with apps like Strava, GoogleFit, and Apple Health to share your achievements with friends and fellow adventurers.

Withstand the Worst to Become the Best

The RANGEMAN GPRH1000 combines the convenient features of a smartwatch and fitness tracker with the tough, durable reputation of the G-SHOCK line. It’s designed to withstand shock, dust, mud, and water and is based on bio-based resins, which are environmentally friendly and durable. The case gets added protection from forged and stamped metal components that guard the GPS antenna and sensors inside. A forged metal button guard protects the main control button at the 9 o’clock position, while the case’s button shafts are equipped with gasket fittings to prevent mud and dust from getting in. Like the case, the band is also made of soft bio-based resin, ensuring a comfortable wrist fit. Large buttons with non-slip texture make them easy to operate and reliable even in wet environments.

The Power to Keep Going

The RANGEMAN GPRH1000 has a dual-charging system, so you’re never stuck without power. The time display is powered by solar charging, while the training functions and smart features rely on USB charging for juice. The digital display features a high-brightness full-auto LED backlight that makes the watch readable in the dark.

The G-SHOCK Features You Love

The RANGEMAN GPRH1000 comes with the standard G-SHOCK features and functions we’ve come to love and rely on. It has five alarms, one of which has a snooze function. It has countdown and interval timers, which are helpful for training, and a 1/100s stopwatch, which can measure up to 24 hours. It also has a world time function, which can display the time of 39 cities.

The Best of Both Worlds

Loaded with features that help you explore, analyze, and enjoy your outdoor activities beneath a shock-resistant, 200-meter water-resistant, eco-friendly bio-based resin case, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a watch that combines toughness and functionality the way the G-SHOCK RANGEMAN GPRH1000 does. If you’ve been looking for that one “do it all” watch that you can reliably wear daily with complete peace of mind, then look no further.

And if you’re not the adventuring type, sit back and daydream because the RANGEMAN can have notifications for incoming calls, e-mails, new social media posts, calendar notifications, and reminders, but we think you’d rather be out adventuring.

Made in USA, Swiss Made: Country of Origin Explained

Made in USA, Swiss Made: Country of Origin Explained

Header image: GORUCK GR1 Froning x Allegiance Supply

Whether we like to admit it or not, a product’s country of origin plays a big part in the way we perceive its quality, with the country of origin label reflecting its quality, reputation, and heritage. Saying something is “Made in the USA” automatically gives the item a high standard of craftsmanship, so it’s not surprising that many brands try to use this to their advantage.

GORUCK GR2 Waxed Woodland Camo 34L

So, what exactly does it take for an item to display its country of origin proudly? The answer to that isn’t as clear-cut as we would hope. Not all country of origin labels are created equal. Different products and industries have different standards and regulations for determining the origin of their goods. Some labels are stricter and more transparent than others, while others are vague and misleading.

Discommon Launches The Wallet 3.0: The Return of the Stitch-Free Card Holder

Discommon Launches The Wallet 3.0: The Return of the Stitch-Free Card Holder

Discommon has recently released the next iteration of its popular stitch-free wallet, aptly named The Wallet 3.0. This release marks the third generation of its thermoformed wallet, first launched in 2016. It features a sleek and minimalist design that can hold up to six cards, three on each side. Prioritizing style and durability, it’s made of top-grain nappa leather and micro-suede interior. It features a new and more complex form that allows a little "flip lip" to assist in opening.

One notable change in The Wallet 3.0 is the removal of the RFID blocker, which was present in the previous generations. According to Discommon, the RFID blocker affected the product's longevity and was “mediocre in its abilities in such a small wallet.”

The Wallet 3.0 is not only a cult item for Discommon but also one of the most requested products by its customers. The brand said that it received a lot of inquiries and feedback about its wallet and took its time refining and improving the design.


At a glance

Purpose: Card holder, Everyday carry
Dimenions: 3.625" x 2.625”
Exterior Fabric: Genuine Nappa leather
Inner Fabric: Microsuede
Capacity: 6 cards
Price: $110.00 (also available as a bundle of three for $270)


The Wallet 3.0 is now available on Discommon's website, and it comes in three different color combinations: Tan and Mango, Black and Oslo, and Gray and Ruby.
