Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) with Solar-Assisted GPS Navigation Japanese watches / Quartz watches

To some, the new Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) line of adventure watches may look like a glorified steam engine trying to compete with sleek and glossy bullet trains. Still, offering solar-assisted GPS navigation, adequate (although not stunning) battery life, as well as a bunch of other usable (the watch won't bother you with incoming messages alarms, but will let you retrace your route step by step if you somehow get lost in a wilderness) functions, this gadget looks like a reliable backup for your standalone professional GPS tracker.


Citizen Promaster Navihawk Satellite Wave GPS (ref. CC9030-51E) Japanese watches / Quartz watches

The Japanese brand has been in the business of (also) making GPS-equipped watches for quite some time now. Their new Citizen Promaster Navihawk Satellite Wave GPS (ref. CC9030-51E) is a fine example of how you can get a lot of experience, a block of high-grade steel, a handful of silicon parts and create an absolutely wonderful object that can be a watch, a gadget, and even a surprisingly low-priced fashion statement as well!


Casio G-Shock GravityMaster GPW 1000 Japanese watches / Quartz watches

The 2014 Casio G-Shock GravityMaster GPW 1000 delivers inside its defiantly oversized body an extremely small GPS receiver, a state of the art solar-powered quartz movement, as well as their signature Multi-Band 6 technology that allows the device to automatically receive standard time-calibration signal from atomic clocks. What else would you probably ask from this little monster? Make you breakfast?


Seiko Astron GPS Stratosphere (Ref. SAS033) Japanese watches

The Japanese electronics conglomerate Seiko has officially presented its new Seiko Astron Stratosphere GPS-enabled watch. Although currently there is nothing more than a presentation page on their corporate site, it is already clear that the new watch looks a lot more impressive than the high-tech Astron GPS Solar World Timer in black titanium (Ref. SAST001/007) that the Japanese brand started selling in October 2012. Just look at this huge, domed sapphire crystal that covers not only the dial itself, but also the bezel with its luminous UTC city codes. Isn't it amazing?


Garmin D2 Pilot GPS Gadgets

Visually (and probably electronically) very similar to the last years Fenix Outdoor GPS watch, the new Garmin D2 Pilot elevates its functionality to new heights in order to serve all sorts of pilots. Yes, there is a great deal of planes equipped with state of the art navigational equipment, but if all else fails, you still need a wrist computer to rely on.

Perhaps, September is not the best time of year to introduce yet another running watch. Still, the Swiss-based maker of navigational products (by the way, the brand is based in Schaffhausen: the home town of the famous IWC watchmaking house) decided to start selling its new Garmin Forerunner 620 model. Predictably equipped with a GPS unit, an accelerometer and a small yet powerful computer, this is not just another running companion. This beast is capable of bringing your workout to a completely new level. It is basically your electronic coach.


Gadgets

Back in April, the Kempele, Finland-based electronics manufacturer Polar Electric has updated its popular line of training computers with a new version of the well-known RC3 GPS model. Called Polar RC3 GPS Tour de France, the refreshed device, which is primarily targeted at cyclists, adds real-time GPS-based altitude information to its extensive list of functions. If you are lucky enough to live in a mountainous area near the Mediterranean Sea, the new feature may be especially useful for building that perfect training program.
