According to Casio's Baselworld webpage (currently empty of any new products) - BASELWORLD 2017 - CASIO - it claims that their development philosophy is "Casio Connected." This means, per the website, self-adjusting, self-updating, and self-charging. This is the first I've heard of that. A new philosophy, I guess?? An update to the old "Triple 10" concept? (been there, done that)
I'm happy to read this, as it suggests that g-shocks will continue to be solar-powered (at times), self-contained units that will not be following the smartwatch trend and require tethering for periodic re-charging.
So, self-charging = Tough Solar. Self-updating = Multiband 6, or GPS, I'm guessing. Self-adjusting???? I wonder if this refers to Tough Movement? Or something else??
Baselworld 2017 begins on the 23rd, so VERY SOON, we should be seeing new g-shocks and/or Proteks unveiled!!
