After an extremely well-received update to its incredibly robust Mudmaster earlier last year, G-SHOCK is now moving from land into the sea, bringing a much welcome upgrade to its fan-favorite Frogman series as well.

Unveiled by the company’s French division via a short clip which you can view above, the new model may be the most significant update we’ve seen so far, doing away with the Frogman’s traditional digital display and replacing it with a fully analog dial reminiscent of the one on the Mudmaster. Much like its cousin, the diver’s iconic asymmetrical case has also been improved to a carbon monocoque construction, offering toughness unprecedented in the series. It’s equipped with a dedicated diving mode which can record dive times, surface interval times, and keep count of a dive log which can then be reviewed on your smartphone through the company’s proprietary app. Other features include an ISO-certified 200-meter water resistance, ISO 764-rated magnetic resistance, Tough Solar power, a Super Illuminator LED backlight, both Bluetooth and multiband 6 connectivity, and a navy fluoroelastomer strap.

There’s yet to be an official release date or pricing information regarding the new G-SHOCK GWF-A1000 Frogman, so stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in watches, the Japanese watchmaker has also released a laser-etched full metal GMW-B5000.
