Casio G-Shock Go Green GR7900EW-7
With its recycled paper packaging and Tough Solar power technology the new Casio G-Shock Go Green GR7900EW-7 digital electronic watch looks like a nice choice for the environmentally-conscious customers with a taste for active life style.
Traditionally for the series, the new Casio G-Shock Go Green GR7900EW-7 is by no means small.
According to the Japanese company’s press release, the watch will be delivered in a massive 52.4 mm x 50.0 mm case. Made of white resin and steel, it is whole 17.7 mm in height.
However, the watch is not especially heavy tipping the scales at around 71 grams.
The GR7900EW-7 is powered by the well-known Module 3270 “movement” and therefore sports such useful features as full auto EL backlighting with afterglow, battery power indicator, full auto calendar good till year 2099 and world timer for 31 time-zones and 48 cities.
Also, the watch features a “green” power saving mode that increases the timekeepers operation more than 2.5 times as opposed to normal mode.
Consider this, when the battery is fully charged and the gadget is left in total darkness, it continues to operate for as long as 10 months. However, if you activate the power saving mode, the watch will work for as many as 27 months!
Capable of serving as a replacement for a diving watch, the GR7900EW-7 sports water resistance rating of 200 meters. It also displays a “tide graph” on its monochromatic LCD display.
The watch will go on sale next month at a more than affordable price of $130.
