Starting from the end of the 1990s, G-SHOCK and BABY-G have been issuing special models in collaboration with and in support of various different environmental organizations. Now in 2019, we are pleased to announce our support for the activities of WILDLIFE PROMISING, an Authorized Nonprofit Corporation (NPO) that works towards coexistence between wildlife and humans in Africa. To mark the occasion we are releasing special collaboration models that were created in the spirit of maintaining a better living environment for both wildlife and humans.
This new model is based on the GR-B100 aviation watch of the MASTER Of G Series GRAVITYMASTER lineup of watches that are equipped with precision features and functions required for flight applications.
The coloring of this model is similar to that of the African fish eagle, with a white and black case, a yellow second hand, and a brown colored band.
Connected Engine supports time correction using a time calibration signal and Bluetooth® connection. After connection with a smartphone with Bluetooth®, you can use the G-SHOCK Connected* app to configure countdown alarm settings, to manage waypoint memory, and to manage and store a flight log of distances and travel times of flight missions. To ensure timekeeping accuracy, time information can be obtained from an on-line time server and used to correct the watch’s time setting. The app also can be used to configure World Time, timer, alarm, and other settings. In addition to these Smartphone Link features, these watches come with high-brightness LED illumination, World Time, stopwatch, and more. Stable operation is ensured by a Tough Solar charging system that incorporates original CASIO energy saving technology.

* Smartphone app for use with G-SHOCK Smartphone Link models. It establishes a Bluetooth connection with the watch’s Connected Engine for automatic time correction, configuration of World Time and other settings, and more. It also makes it possible to keep updated with the latest time zone and summer time information. A Tough Solar power system generates enough energy to ensure uninterrupted operation of power-hungry functions.
