Casio announced the G-Shock Mudmaster GGB100-1B (left) and Rangeman GW9400-1B “Blackout” Editions for a February 2020 release. These basic black models feature a mostly black colorway with silver buttons, gray lettering, beige accents, and reverse LCD displays. These watches continue the style that was originally seen with the Mudmaster GWG-1000-1A1 in 2018.
Except for its standard resin band instead of a carbon fiber insert band, the GW9400-1B is the same as Japan’s GW-9400J-1BJF released in January 2020.
The Mudmaster GGB100-1B utilizes the Carbon Core Guard structure with a carbon fiber reinforced case and also comes equipped with a carbon fiber bezel. Major features include mud resistance, Quad Sensor (with altimeter-barometer, compass, thermometer, and step tracker), sunsrise/sunset data, and Bluetooth mobile link.
Major features of the Rangeman GW9400-1B include mud resistance, low temperature resistance (-10C/14F), Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 auto radio timekeeping, Triple Sensor, sunrise/sunset data, one-press stopwatch start button, and 40-set sensor record memory. Of course, both models are also shock-resistant and water-resistant to 200 meters.
Though both watches are slated for a late February 2020 release, one dealer is already selling the GW9400-1B on Amazon and eBay (see below). The GGB100-1B and GW9400-1B will also be available at Gshock.com for $380 and $330, respectively.
The GG-B100-1BER and GW-9400-1BER are also being released in Europe.
