From G-SHOCK, the timepiece with a tough design that never goes out of style, comes a new model with the World’s First Solar-Assisted GPS Navigation for the G-SHOCK RANGEMAN.
The RANGEMAN is part of the “Master of G” series of watches designed for use in the most extreme conditions. RANGEMAN watches incorporate Triple Sensor to measure compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude, and temperature, based on the concept of “Survival Toughness.”
In addition to Triple Sensor, the new GPR-B1000 is capable of GPS
navigation—a first for a G-SHOCK watch. The watch collects location data from GPS satellites to display the current location on a route or bearing to a destination, in real-time. The watch also saves track and point data (including longitude/latitude, altitude, and temperature) in memory.
The GPR-B1000 delivers toughness in construction and materials, with a dust- and mud-resistant structure and carbon fiber insert band. Designed for the ultimate in survival toughness, the GPR-B1000 is the latest evolution of G-SHOCK.
ABSOLUTE TOUGHNESS: A 10-year battery life, 10-bar water resistance and 10-meter dropping shock resistance. These were the three requirements of the “Triple 10” concept that led to development G-SHOCK’s shock-resistant structure. The rugged shape and robust styling originated with an engineer’s brief calling for an “unbreakable watch”. Since its birth in 1983, G-SHOCK has continued its unrestrained evolution while retaining its unique basic structure. Today, G-SHOCK continues to take up challenges beyond the limits of time and common sense.
