In the old days when watches were viewed as nothing more than jewelry pieces to be pampered, Casio thought differently; they saw a tool that could accompany its wearer through the most demanding and grueling of ordeals, if designed right. This led to the triple 10 design concept that remains the bedrock on which every G-Shock watch has been manufactured and released till date.
The triple 10 design demands, nay, guarantees that every G-Shock watch: has a 10-year battery life; endures 10 bar water resistance and can absorb a 10m free-fall drop. This triple 10 concept is the reason for the robust and rugged design that we all love so much.
Over the last 36 years, G-Shock has defined and maintained what was required for a watch to be considered ‘tough’. Born of a simple dream, creating a watch that never breaks, the G-shock line of tactical watches has continued to lead the way in redefining and revolutionizing the way we look at watches.
The G-Shock rangeman comes with a few key features that make it particularly attractive:
The triple sensor consists of a Compass for direction, a Barometer for pressure, and an Altimeter for your altitude. Basically, these are three metrics you want to have close by at all times if you are an outdoor person. The barometer even has a graph display that can help you predict the weather depending on if the graph is rising or falling.
There is also a thermometer joined to the barometer. The Altimeter comes with its own graph display that tells you if you are ascending or descending. This triple sensor can be really useful if you happen to find yourself lost or in a daze, especially on mountain ranges
Around the edge of the watch, face is the solar cell that powers your watch battery with solar energy. This ensures the continued working of the watch while the wearer goes about their business. This is a very liberating feature of the G-Shock rangeman.
Adjustable Sunlight and Sunset Times
With The G-Shock Rangeman, it’s possible to adjust the times of sunrise and sunset. This is especially useful if you are on a hike or maybe on safari or any situation where it is vitally important to know the exact hours of sunrise and sunset.
The phone actually has features that allow you to program the city you are in, and using that information. The watch is capable of telling you the exact times of sunrise and sunset on a given date. This is a feature that is rare among watches, and that includes the many watches that belong to the G-Shock brand as well.
6-Band Atomic Clock
The G-Shock Rangeman also comes with 6-band atomic clock control that enables it to keep much more accurate time. This synchronization is automatic. You also have the option to switch it to manual if you want. When you do, the watch tells you the last time it got synchronized.
This is neat, because with this feature, you are sure of having the most accurate time you can ever dream of having, no matter where you find yourself
