Casio G-Shock Debuts its GPS-Enabled GPW1000
With rumors floating around for nearly two months now, we finally get our first tease of what Casio G-Shock’s GPS-enabled timepiece will look like. Dubbed the GPW1000 or GPS Hybrid Waveceptor as it was initially introduced, this wristwatch will pair GPS technology with the Multi-Band 6 radio system to provide accurate time in more places than ever before. If you’re unfamiliar with the technology, Multi-Band 6 gives your watch the ability to connect to all six transmission stations around the world – two in Japan and one each in China, North America, United Kingdom and Germany. Yet places like Australia may have trouble connecting to this system, hence the introduction of GPS. Unfortunately, little is known of the GPW1000, other than what you see above, but we will be sure to keep you informed when anything new hits the web.
