Casio G-Shock GDF100 with Altimeter

The new Casio G-Shock GDF100 digital electronic watch comes equipped with a two-in-one front-facing pressure and temperature sensor.

The sensor is placed into an ugly wart growing from the watch’s resin bezel at 9 o’clock.

As usual for the G-Shock range, the new GDF100 will be literally loaded with features.

Besides the aforementioned barometer and thermometer, the timekeeper can also serve as an altimeter, a stopwatch, and a countdown timer.

Other functions include a world time with 31 time zones, five daily alarms, hourly time signal and a full auto calendar good till year 2099.

Too bad, there is no pulsometer.

Like most rugged sports watches, this one is also quite large measuring 55 x 51.5 mm in width and height and more than 17 millimeters thick.

It is still rather light tipping the scales at 69.2 grams.

The GDF100’s LCD display with LED backlight system is protected with a mineral glass.

The watch will be provided in three color variations (Matte Black with orange accents (GDF100-1B,) Matte Black with silver accents (GDF100-1A,) and Crimson Red with black accents (GDF100-4)) and will retail at a more than affordable price of only $130 dollars.
