Casio adds “city” colors to its Move line

Casio’s G-SHOCK MOVE line got a facelift this week with changes to the GBD200UU-9, GBA900UU-3A,??and GBA900UU-5A models. These fitness models include step trackers, accelerometers, and Bluetooth connectivity to Casio’s MOVE app.

The Casio F-91WS-8 is a jelly update of the classic digital

The Casio F-91W is almost the classic digital watch – it’s small, light, easy to use, and inexpensive – but it works. People around the world have been wearing this classic watch forever- including myself. Now, Casio has released a new special color edition of the watch, featuring pastel colors, clear and smoke grey, in translucent jelly straps – a fun new refresh of the classic.

I say we call this the Gorillaz-Shock instead of G-Shock

There are some times in your life where music really sticks with you. It may be a band, a track, or even just a mood, but it stays with you, and you can never get enough of the song. For me, one of those songs is “Clint Eastwood” by Gorillaz, and there’s a G-Shock release that honors that band’s debut from all the way back in 2001.

Kicking it old school with the AAASY Supercolor

So, you say you’ve really got a thing for the digital watches of the 80s and 90s, but you don’t want to buy one that has not had any updates since it was first introduced? Yes, there are some models out there like that, mainly from our friends at Casio. However, if you want something that’s a bit more of a modern retro take – with more than a splash of color – then the AASY Supercolor may be your particular jam.

The Casio ProTrek PRG-600 wants you to get outside

We’ve reviewed several different Casio ProTrek watches and just lately, as part of the Wristwatch Day celebrations, we had another one come in on loan for a review. We’ve already talked about the Casio Edifice that came in, and in that I teased that I really ended up preferring the other watch. So, let’s see what got my attention with the Casio ProTrek PRG-600.

It’s vintage, it’s slim, it’s Casio

I know, I know – back-to-back days of Casio news. Well, I don’t control when they’re releasing things, particularly stuff that will be found interesting by you, our readers. They just recently hit up some updates to something that will look instantly familiar to many, the Casio Vintage.

The TokyoFlash PSI watch is under pressure

No matter what you think of TokyoFlash’s odd watch designs you have to give them points for creativity. Their latest piece? The $189 PSI, a watch that looks like a pressure valve for a machine that doesn’t exist.

Previewing the Casio ProTrek WSD-F30

Due to be released in January 2019, we’re looking forward to a full look at the new Casio ProTrek WSD-F30. This outdoor smartwatch features a touchscreen, GPS, various sensors, basic water resistance, and wifi/bluetooth connectivity. Stay tuned for a full writeup as soon as it is released.

Back in black with the Suunto 3 Fitness

While we have reviewed more than a few different fitness watches, there is one brand we have not really focused on – at least, until today.  That brand, of course, is Suunto.  As with many other brands, they offer a wide variety of fitness watches, some very technically oriented to a specific sport or activity, and others a bit more, shall we say, generalist.  Today, we check out that latter category, with the Suunto 3 Fitness.

GOLD BLING. Enter the Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000D-1

This is not the first G-Shock I’ve owned, and it certainly won’t be the last. It is however, the most blinged out, intense, and heavy G-Shock I’ve worn. The Casio G-Shock GMWB5000TFG-9 is imagined to be the ultimate iteration of the venerable square G series, and comes standard with all of the features, design elements, and heritage of the entire line before it. I wore this blinged monster for a week or two and attracted a ton of envious glances, curious stares, and occasional rolled eyes.
