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.
