    Frogman Rumor?

    I was at the G-Shock store today and had an interesting chat with one of the sales reps.

    Mentioned two things:
    1. There will be a white and blue icerc frogman this summer

    2. Casio will relaunch the frogman with a depth sensor in the summer (June / July)

    Has anyone heard either of these rumors?

    Re: Frogman Rumor?

    Not surprising with (1) since we all know they do roll out some ICERC frogs from time to time.

    I think somebody here has forecasted launch of a new Frog series before around this year based on number of years since G(W)F-1000 launch, though did not hear something on specifically what entails the next Frogman, not very surprising to me either. I'm not sure if they will continue on having atomic variants - I expect they will given the price point of frogs and that they pretty much stuff atomic into all "regular" (instead of the stripped down ones) master of Gs. I'm not concerned about the depth sensor though that sounds consistent with Frog as a watch with diver theme.

    Keep an eye on Baselworld.

    Fjay,

    You and KnL are pretty handy. If they do not release negative display, you guys will just mod to your liking.

    ClarenceK, if you happened to be at the SOHO store, I was told the same thing. I'm wondering if it would be an analog Frog as well, something of a Frogmaster.

    Re: Frogman Rumor?

    Don't think Casio will deprecate the evergreen Frogman line with a Frogmaster strategy. That sounds too much of a gamble and will most likely fail, given that Frogman already has a proven formula and will pretty much sell as many as they want, and is literally the only current all-digi line left outside Rangeman (I have a feeling they might deprecate Rangeman within a couple of years).

    Watch out for a symptom that they start adding a screwback to mudmaster and the ISO rating, but IMO that is highly unlikely.

    Frogmaster won't work but it is possible with analogue DiveMaster line.
