    He probably became employed by Casio to design this because they were annoyed upon receiving so many letters from him

    I certainly hope so that's the case. As he was in one of the threads looking for employment as a sales, and I definitely think an engineering position is better fit for his mindset and talent.

    As for this watch, I do think Casio already has all the tools to put it together. They have the Bluetooth watch platform for few years, and they have the atomic/GPS hybrid platform from the GPW-1000, all they need to do is to combine them cost effectively and power efficiently. For power efficiency, there comes my biggest question I wonder: how did they do it for powering 2 power hogs, Bluetooth and GPS, with solar?! Is it still using the CLB2016 rechargeable battery from the GPW-1000 or something else?

    Most importantly, if the user used the Bluetooth mode excessively, will it cause too much down time for charging? You see, you can't really just plug it in like smart watches, and can only charge it with light. As those familiar with solar watches, that means it could take hours to days to charge! That could be a major inconvenient factor for this watch.

    Probably my next watch, but no problem to receive the first version Gpw-1000, I love the muscle look, I find Casio lose this appearance in second version, Gulfmaster and PRW...

    Re: NEW GRAVITYMASTER GPW-2000

    Any info on pricing?

    On a side note, I don't get the whole triple sync. It's just another thing that can break to me. I just want accurate time I don't have to think about and set when I travel or DST. I don't need syncing from towers to devices to coffee makers, etc. Seems a bit of overkill to me.

    Love the tech, think it looks boring. Will probably end up buying one at some point.

    Copied this from g-central com


    " The Casio G-Shock GPW-2000 Gravitymaster has a list price of ¥100,000 JPY plus tax."


    That's around 880 USD or 6800 HKD and almost D1000 Frogman ( price wise ) territory! Same source says release in Japan 19th May 2017
