    Re: NEW GRAVITYMASTER GPW-2000

    A year or two ago, a forum member here (without naming names) insisted in multiple threads that Casio should create a watch in his ideal with solar, atomic, GPS, Bluetooth, double tap light switch and some other functions he desired all in the format of the GWM5610. I think he also sent multiple correspondence to Casio to demand for the features and watch. As for part of the amusement, I created the following image of a modified GWM5610 with "Triple Connect" technology and "Double Tap" light switch.

    Today with the release of the GPW-2000, large part of that imaginative watch has been realized. Casio called it "3 Way Time Sync" instead of "Triple Connect", but that's pretty close. Solar, atomic, GPS, and Bluetooth are all there, only things left out are the double tap light switch and the square case.

    Yeah somehow that really sounded familiar to me. We all know T4P Once the first new Gravity Masters will be popping up on F17 there will be no holding back

    Thanks for the pics and info Starscream!

    Cool new GPW! I like it a lot. The dial and hour markers look very nice.

    The screw down crown is a major update to me. When I had a GPW-1000RAF the crown was a little too sharp on the edge for me, it irritated my wrist when I wore it loosely. So I sold it off. Also as K&L mentioned, I didn't like the 24hr sub-dial either.

    Another bonus is that this watch might be able to update it's time zones if a country/area changes it's time zone. I know that at least 1 time zone is wrong on the GPW-1000 already and there isn't a way to update the firmware or GPS locations in the 1000.

    Will have to read about the features in more detail.

    But what a nice looking dial!

    Yeah sure, after you guys ridiculed him to death, he is probably in a support group now.....chewing his fingernails, and babbling on and on about "Triple Connect" while receiving his next dose of Prozac.

    You did the right thing.
    Resist the hype and pressure to 'upgrade to the latest' tech.

    Re: NEW GRAVITYMASTER GPW-2000

    Finding more to dislike on this version, then to like.


    Things I dislike:

    1) Flat face color (no carbon fiber look- - kind of dull)
    2) No side notches on strap (Which I would assume makes the GPW1000 strap a little more flexible)
    3) The less protected Bezel (that exposed metal with the sharp edges is going to be a magnet for damage)
    4) What appears to be an inner bezel city ring with less timezones showing than the GPW1000
    5) Not liking the look of that left side and buttons - Just looks like a lesser grade watch than what it is supposed to be.
    6) 198g - I hope that's a misprint, otherwise that's a boat anchor! (My GPW1000T is almost half that weight)


    Things I like:

    1) The 12 hour subdial, I hate the 24 hour subdial on the GPW1000
    2) The UTC button (I assume subdial is second world time, so that gives 3 world times - one being UTC).

    I am neutral on the bluetooth, how long is that bound to be compatible? However, if it allows for updating time zone maps in the watch, that might be its biggest advantage (though the limited city ring confuses me), but I would rather get time updates from GPS.
