The most affordable Casio Edifice yet

We here at Knapsack are fans of technology, and things that improve our lives. We’re also big fans of watches (and that’s why we also write WWR). We’ve covered a number of Casio Edifice watches on both sites, but the one they just announced – the Casio Edifice EFR571DB-1A1 – is the most affordable one I’ve seen yet.

Hit the throttle with the new Casio Edifice ECB10HR-1A

When it comes to Casio Edifice designs, it’s starting to remind of the old gem regarding Midwestern weather. To paraphrase a bit, if you don’t like the design of today’s Edifice, just wait a bit, because it’ll change soon enough. So, if you didn’t like that last roundup we gave you, there’s a new Honda collaboration waiting for you in the form of the Casio Edifice ECB10HR-1A.

Ahoy! There are new Casio Edifice’s to be had!

Taking steps with the Casio ProTrek PRT-B50-4

Over the last year or two, I’ve reviewed a number of watches in the Casio ProTrek lineup. Those most prominently have featured their Triple Sensor technology, which give you compass, altitude/barometer, and temperature readouts on your wrist. Well, friends, we’ve now reached the realm of the (wait for it) quad sensor. What does this do, you ask? Well, read on for our review of the Casio ProTrek PRT-B50.

Go for a heart-healthy hike with the Casio ProTrek WSD-F21HR

Over at WWR, we’ve looked at a number of Casio ProTrek watches. In my eyes, if you’re on the hunt for an outdoors-focused watch with a lot of technical capabilities, the ProTrek lineup is the place to be. If you’re also fond of tracking your exertions, you’ve had to go for a fitness watch that also had GPS built in. That is, until the Casio ProTrek WSD-F21HR was announced.

The G-Shock Mudmaster goes lightweight

If you’re familiar with G-Shock’s you’ll know that the Mudmaster – or, per Casio, MUDMASTER – is the beefiest of the beef. Designed to survive, well, mud, they feature both shock resistance and water resistance with an eye to easy cleaning.

Now the brand has come out with a three new GGB100 pieces “with an updated Carbon Core Guard Structure and triple-layered carbon-insert bezel” which means you can probably hit these things with a truck.

The pieces come in black, green, and orange and cost $350. From the release:

The GGB100 is available in military themed colorways, black (GGB100-1A), green (GGB100-1A3), and orange (GGB100-1A9). The new GGB100 models feature the MUDMASTER traditional cylindrical button structure, which is made to prevent debris from entering the watch, as well as a textured band and large buttons to ensure ease of use and high visibility. The new timepieces also boast a dual layered case back of thin stainless steel and fine resin to keep it airtight, resistant to shocks and provide a comfortable feel to wear from day to night. 

The pieces also have Bluetooth connectivity and activity trackers built in alongside the traditional compass, thermometer, and altimeter/barometer.

You can pick one up on Casio’s site, just in time for Fall mud season.
