Since watches are always on the wrist, customers need a watch that does not break even in a fall. Based on this idea, Casio exploded conventional wisdom with the concept for a shock-resistant watch. The G-SHOCK was born. Firmly footed in the "All-Around Tough" concept, Casio has developed this product over time, adding new and exciting features. Use it with confidence, anywhere! Casio's shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies such as a timekeeping module suspended inside the watch structure to prevent it from suffering direct shock and internal components protected with urethane.
Born from the breakthrough idea of a hollow structure. The case employs a hollow structure in which the module is "floated" to protect it from shocks. A full urethane bezel provides all-directional enclosure to prevent direct shocks from striking the glass and buttons. And cushioning material provides extra protection for the key parts such as the crystal oscillator inside the module. These and other shock-resistant technologies, exclusive to G-Shock, are spread generously throughout the body and the module interior to raise toughness to the highest levels. Hollow-structure case. If they tried to absorb shocks simply by encasing the module with urethane resin or other such materials, the case would grow to immense proportions. G-Shock realizes high shock resistance by supporting the module inside the case at just a few points, thus creating a situation as if the module were floating in air.
Direct shocks to the buttons and the glass surface are prevented by a protective urethane-resin bezel design. Shock resistance has been ensured by inserting cushioning material between the bezel and case in metal models with lower shock-absorption capabilities. Protection of important parts with cushioning material. The crystal oscillator and other important parts inside the module are individually protected with cushioning material. This prevents contact failures and improper operation due to distortions that could otherwise occur inside the module if the watch experience a sudden strong impact.
Case design offering protection against free-fall shocks. A prominent bezel configuration was adopted to prevent the buttons and glass from contacting flat surfaces, thus protecting them from shocks when falling at any angle. This design concept stressing protection from shocks is basic to every G-Shock case design, and the same protective structure is employed not only for our urethane cases, but also for our mm teal cases and analog watch cases. The rethane band that acts as a shock absorber. The band actually acts as a shock absorber itself, protecting against shocks from behind. We have established strict standards for the combination ratio of urethane resin employed. Neither too soft nor too hard, the superb specified combination realizes an ideal balance between shock resistance and comfortable wear.
A solar panel converts even weak illumination from fluorescent lighting into electric power. A rechargeable battery with a large power storage capacity supports stable operation of various functions with high electricity consumption. You never have to worry about the battery running down because it's a solar battery. Casio watches with solar technology, receive thermal and electrical energy that recharges the watch batteries through solar panels on the face of the watch. The combination of a solar panel with a large-capacity rechargeable battery enables a variety of energy-hungry functions to operate smoothly.
Ratings & Reviews
I would own this watch again.
I wear this watch everyday all day. I don't have to worry that my watch won't work after getting it wet or bumping it on hard surfaces.
I use this watch every day I'm on shift, great for keeping time, makes taking pulses and respiration's even easier due to the 10 second display in the middle of the face of the watch, I would recommend this watch to anybody in the Fire or EMS service looking for a dependable daily watch, and also a stylish one to boot!
definately a good buy
I have had mine for years and love it. It is by far the best watch ive had for work. I did wear the band out but found a replacement band on the internet. The only con I had was that you will sweat under the band, but that ok this is a sweaty job!
