G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 Hands-On

For Baselworld 2016, Casio has introduced one of the most impressively cool G-Shock watches in a while with the brand new model GWF-D1000 Frogman diver. Casio's premier serious diving G-Shock watch has retained everything we love about a Casio G-Shock and has grown into a serious diving computer. Casio has finally developed a neat-looking tool that modern divers can rely on, as well as a timepiece that you can theoretically wear on a daily basis. It isn't cheap, but this is one of the best G-Shock watches around that isn't a novelty watch and is the exact kind of device that helped make G-Shock watches as popular as they are today.

According to Casio, the original G-Shock Frogman was introduced in 1993 and like many of their core collections has evolved over time as the company added more and more features to its G-Shock rescue diver. Many of those advancements were about making the Casio G-Shock Frogman a better watch such as making it more durable or solar-powered. For 2016, The Casio G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 family (which includes the reference GWF-D1000-1 and GWF-D1000B-1 (blue color accents) has been upgraded to incorporate the features of a relatively robust dive computer - while still retaining all the same features and conveniences of a Casio G-Shock.

These convenience features include Casio's full swathe of functions such as the "Tough Solar" light-powered movement, atomic clock radio signal accuracy control system, and intense case durability. Most of the inner case is actually DLC-coated steel and the Frogman is further water resistant to 200 meters. Casio also added three sensors which measure the temperature (in 0.1 centigrade increments), depth gauge, and compass.

I'm 50/50 here with the newer design it looks cool but I still prefer the last
design a little better.
I've never felt like I truly belonged here and I believe it's time I move on.
