G-SHOCK’s Toughest RANGEMAN

(Sponsored post) The new G-SHOCK RANGEMAN GPRB1000-1 features a solar-assisted GPS navigation.

When combined with G-SHOCK’s legendary Triple Sensor that measures compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude and temperature, the result is the most advanced evolution of this full-featured G-SHOCK’s collection.

The new G-SHOCK RANGEMAN GPRB1000-1 features a solar-assisted GPS navigation. When combined with G-SHOCK’s legendary Triple Sensor that measures compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude and temperature, the result is the most advanced evolution of this full-featured G-SHOCK’s collection.

The RANGEMAN GPRB1000-1 is capable of GPS navigation, a first for a G-SHOCK watch. It collects location data from GPS satellites to display the current location on a route or bearing to a destination, in real-time. The watch also saves track and point data (including longitude/latitude, altitude, and temperature) in memory.

By connecting a RANGEMAN GPRB1000-1 via Bluetooth to a smartphone, anyone can easily create routes and display them on a 3D map (on the G-SHOCK Connected app) or as a timeline. To stay powered up, the GPRB1000-1 features both wireless and solar charging systems. The GPS functions are usable for up to 33 hours on a wireless charge of approximately five hours. Even if the battery level drops below a usable level for GPS while outdoors, solar charging can be used to resume GPS functions for a limited time.

The RANGEMAN GPRB1000-1 features wired, wireless and solar charging systems.

And for the first time ever on a G-SHOCK watch, you’ll find a 2-mm thick ceramic case back, which allows it to be charged using a wireless charger. The watch’s toughness extends to the case made with a dust-and mud-resistant structure and a band with a carbon fiber insert. And of course, this GPRB1000-1 is shock-resistant and water resistant to 200 meters.

The new RANGEMAN GPRB1000-1 sells for $800 and is available at select authorized retailers, including select Macy’s, jewelers, www.gshock.com, and G-SHOCK Soho Store.
