I managed to ruin the threads of the caseback on my first attempt trying to replace the battery and I ruined the crystal on my second attempt trying to replace the caseback. The scuba-specific functions include the depth gauge, as well as the ability to track depth, record dive time and water temperature, and log data for up to 20 dives. Various applications and a continuous numbering make this release unique – collectors, listen closely.

Watch status display: Graphical display of time-reception status, solar power generation status, internal data update history and more. The fan-favourite Frogman lineup by Casio G-Shock showcases the evolution of shock-resistant diver’s watches.each model of the limited edition is numbered from 1 to 350, done with a laser engravement on the buckle of the watch. Finally, Fossil makes various hybrid smartwatches that add basic smartwatch features to a watch that looks like a normal watch.

Simply remove the side pins while pressing the buttons on the lugs’ undersides to quickly and easily swap out the band. Take your pick from a range of versatile styles in the G-Shock series, whether that’s matt black or baby pink. For me, it conjures up warm memories of a 1980s childhood filled with a bevy of calculator watches and F91s and SK-5 keyboards.

There are multiple asymmetric sub-dials: the one at 3 o’clock shows the day of the week, mode setting, or tidal information depending on the model.Time, perpetual calendar date, chronograph, dive time and depth log for up to 20 dives with rapid ascent alarm; depth gauge accurate to 10 centimeters. While a fully analog display might sound slightly cumbersome for a feature-packed dive watch, Casio’s Frogman models offer a number of tricks to facilitate their operation while underwater. The dial is protected by a clear sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment, while the reverse side of the watch is fitted with a threaded screw-down caseback that features another sapphire crystal that has been finished bright blue with a vapor deposition process and engraved with the Frogman collection’s logo. This 30th anniversary model is based on the MRG-BF1000, a premium, full-metal G-SHOCK MR-G timepiece for the sea.

mm, and I hate to trot out that cliché "surprisingly wearable" but what the hell, it's surprisingly wearable. It’s well-designed, fast, stable, and provides an easy way to change various features on the watch, in addition to managing dive-specific features. And only after I messed with the frail mechanical watches I could actually appreciate how beautiful it is to not worry about my watch breaking down. Flexible and durable fluoro rubber is used for the band, Ti64 titanium alloy for the buckle and band loop.A slight impact to the crown killed the date platform and left a stress crack on the crown tube unnoticed by the watch maker that later let water in. Its quartz functionality brings it a little bit closer to being a proper dive computer, and its craftsmanship and quality of materials let it stand up next to some of the fanciest watches out there. I’m not going to pretend that it fits under a shirt cuff, but it certainly doesn’t feel as chunky as those numbers would lead one to believe.

The smartphone connectivity further ensures ease of operation, right from making time adjustments to changing watch settings. Using renewable organic resources such as castor oil plants and corn helps reduce the ecological footprint. On the wrist the G-Shock Frogman MRG-BF1000R is surprisingly comfortable given its dimensions: a substantial 56mm length × 49. If the Frogman appeals but you don’t dive (not that it really matters), similar functionality is available on the G-Shock Mudmaster and the G-Shock Gravitymaster.That’s about to change with the EQB-1000D-1A, which crams tech we’ve seen in connected G-Shocks into a new, slimline case. Designed with incredible shock- and water-resistance, the Frogman series is designed to meet and exceed the rigorous demands of undersea divers.
