    why casio is not making new g shocks with sensors?

    i was wondering that why casio did not make any new g shock model with twin sensor functions after sky force and riseman .i understand that both these models have been discontinued and are very hard to find in most markets of world especially in asia,which is sad.

    i have a sky force black version g shock ,but its outer body was a bit damaged due to extreme heat exposure,,,i tried to find a new skyforce but it was not to be found ,than i tried to find riseman ,but sadly it too is discontinued now ,so its very hard to find .

    judging by the memebers views in this forum i guess that if casio makes a new G shock with twin sensors of triple sensors then it will have a great market .than why does casio not make any new sensor g shock? is this a market strategy so the sales of protrek series do not get effected in a negative way after launch of g shock with sensors? personally i have most of protrek models that casio ever made ,but i still want a g shock sensor watch too , so that i can use it in very extreme conditions where i will not want to try my prg series protrek watches.so although i really love my prg 70 ,80 and 90 but still i want a g shock sensor watch too in my collection.
    i hope casio launches a new model of g shock with sensors soon ,i have been waiting for almost 4 years now. so i guess that launch of a g shock sensor watch will not decrease sale of protrek series ,i am an example regarding this fact,,,so if thats teh reason for not making g sensor tahtn casio should reconsider their strategy.

    agree

    the only sensor G-Shock casio is making is themometer

    maybe they are afraid that new G-Shock with sensor will steal the sales of protrek/pathfiner?

    it will be nice if Casio will update Riseman and Wademan with tough solar

    Nice watch the SKYFORCE DW-6700 :gold

    I think It could have something to do with price and todays market.

    These old Japanese classics were expensive in their day.

    I just took a photo of a photo of the tag of a model I have in stock.

    20,000 is a lot of peanuts:-D BACK THEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Look how expensive RAYSMAN and GULFMAN, not to mention MRG :gold

    IThe hey days have gone I'm afraid and so has the novelty

    Hello drkjke,
    I see an analogy with this and something a mechanic told me. How the company introduced the same model with a diesel motor. They found to their misfortune that it actually cost them sales from their petrol models, rather than expand their market share. That is the sold the same number of cars, except that there were two types of engines. Not good business considering how much it cots to implement the diesel.

    I see the same thing with Casio. It's been documented that the market share, and popularity of G-shocks is decreasing for Casio. Given the popularity for moblie phones with their features. I think it might be too costly for Casio to design and build (or even implement with modification) the latest sensors into their watches. Not to mention that it may too take away from the Pro-trek market share as you have indicated.

    Good question.

    thanks for good input on my question ...so the culprit is the damn market policy ,depriving us of potentially great outdoor sports g shock sensor watches...
    so i think there is no hope of a g twin or triple sensor in near future :-S

    G Shock is all about no-nonsense toughness. Sensors are... sensitive lol. No, I am sure they can make them tough enough to hang. It's not like the protreks are dying or anything. But when I think G-Shock toughness, I don't think a half dozen sensors. I'm not even really big on the wavecptors.

    Neither am I. Changing the time is the easiest thing to do.

    I'd rather a thermometer
