The future, they say, is here but just not evenly distributed. Luckily Casio’s new Edifice line is full of it. Their two new models, the $300 EQB501XDB-1A and EQB501XD-1A, have all of the standard Edifice tricks – 3D dials, lots of functions – but with a few new surprises.

The watches use Casio’s Tough Solar power to manage battery life and the also use Bluetooth SMART, a low energy version of Bluetooth that lets you set and update the watch and set the time properly in any timezone. Quoth Casio in a breathless few sentences:

? By downloading the CASIO WATCH+ app and connecting to a compatible smartphone via Bluetooth® SMART, the watch can access the correct time in its current location and for up to 300 cities worldwide, even updating with the latest time zone and Daylight Saving Time information. The timepieces also have improved accuracy by automatically syncing, via phone, to a time server on the internet four times a day or they can be synced by a one-push reset to ensure ultimate accuracy.

Both pieces are resistant to 100 meters and feature a stopwatch, alarm, phone finder button, an luminous hands. They are shipping this month.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
