G-Shock GG-B100 Mudmaster with Quad Sensor (Triple Sensor + Step Counter), Bluetooth, Carbon Fiber Bezel

The Mudmaster enters a new era with the Carbon Core Guard structure and Bluetooth…

G-Shock GG-B100 Mudmaster with Quad Sensor (Triple Sensor + Step Counter), Bluetooth, Carbon Fiber Bezel

G-Shock is releasing the all-new Mudmaster GG-B100 series in July 2019. The GG-B100 is part of the recent wave of Carbon Core Guard G-Shocks and has a carbon fiber-reinforced case with a carbon fiber bezel. Like previous Mudmaster and Mudman models, the GG-B100 has a mud-resistant structure.

The GG-B100 has a Quad Sensor (but it is not the same Quad Sensor as the GWN-Q1000 Gulfmaster which included a water Depth Meter). Three of the sensors are the pressure sensor (altimeter and barometer), compass, and thermometer, and the fourth is a step counter. The GG-B100 has the Bluetooth mobile link function that allows the watch to connect to the G-Shock Connected smartphone app for various functions such as automatic time adjustment, mission log, location indicator, calorie consumption display, and phone finder.

A noticeable addition to this model that the other “junior” (non-GWG-1000) Mudmaster models lack is the front-facing light button. As with the new GA-2000 series, the new Carbon Core Guard case allows the watch to have guardless buttons. Unlike the sleeker look of the GA-2000, the GG-B100 retains the signature armored look of previous Mudmaster models with protective resin sections placed over the bezel.

The GG-B100 will launch in three colorways in July 2019 in Japan with the black GG-B100-1AJF, khaki green GG-B100-1A3JF, and orange GG-B100-1A9JF. The GG-B100-1A, GG-B100-1A3, and GG-B100-1A9 are also expected to be released in the rest of Asia in July 2019. Casio America announced the GGB100-1A3 for an August 2019 release with a list price of $350. (Update: The GGB100-1A, GGB100-1A3, and GGB100-1A9 are also being released in the U.S. with a list price of $350 each.)

G-Shock GG-B100 Mudmaster with Quad Sensor Step Counter and Carbon Fiber Bezel

Update (March 2019): Casio officially announced the GG-B100.

The fourth sensor is an accelerometer that serves as a step counter. Other unique functions include the Mission Log which automatically records a track of the altitude data from the watch and GPS data from the smartphone to a dedicated app. Manual operation also allows the user to plot an altitude point on a map. The Location Indicator function displays the compass bearing direction and distance to a user-designated location. This settable location is actually the user’s current location at the time of designation, so this function allows the user to backtrack to the original location (and does not serve as a route mapping function for other destinations). The Customizable Mode allows the user to change which functions appear when the Mode button is pressed and in what order they are displayed.

The carbon fiber bezel is made with a carbon fiber sheet inserted into the fine resin. The top fine resin layer is transparent which allows the the carbon fiber to be visible.

The watch is battery-powered with an estimated battery life of 2 years. Other features include world time (38 cities + UTC), 1/100-second stopwatch (for first 60 minutes, 1-second after 60 minutes, max 59’59”99 with elapsed time, split time, 1st and 2nd place times), countdown timer (max 24 hours with 1-second increments, and 1-minute and 1-hour increments for setting from 1 minute to 24 hours), 5 daily alarms, hourly time signal, sunrise/sunset time display, auto double LED light with afterglow (1.5/3 seconds). The dimension are 55.4 x 34.9 x 19.3 millimeters and the weight is about 92 grams.

Update (June 2019): Casio Europe now has the GG-B100 models listed. Other info and features not previously mentioned include:

• The altimeter operates at up to 10,000 meters.
• There is a 40-set altimeter data memory that includes the measured altitude and date and time.
• The Height Gain function sums all meters climbed in a session to show the total ascent during a tour.
• The measuring range of the barometer is 260/1100 hPa.
• The measuring range of the thermometer is (-10°C /+60°C).
• The display is mineral glass.
• The watch has a battery change indicator that shows an icon when it is time to change the CR2025 battery.

Update (July 2019): The GG-B100-1AJF, GG-B100-1A3JF, and GG-B100-1A9JF have a list price in Japan of 45,000 JPY each. G-Shock Japan says that the GG-B100 has a “spherical curved [mineral] glass” display. The GG-B100-1A, GG-B100-1A3, and GG-B100-1A9 are also being released in other Asian countries.

el reloj en sí está bastante bien; pero alguien puede decirme de qué exactamente es esa fibra de carbono tanto del bezel como de la caja: de metal o de una especie de resina? casio acaba de sacar varios vídeos Youtube. Si alguien sabe más de ese material que lo diga

(Google Translate: the clock itself is quite good; But can anyone tell me what exactly is that carbon fiber of both the bezel and the box: metal or a kind of resin? casio has just released several Youtube videos. If someone knows more about that material that says so)

The case is resin reinforced with carbon fiber. The bezel is also resin with a carbon fiber layer which is then covered with clear resin.

Alexandru, The new Rangeman GPR-B1000-1 has been out for over a year now. Casio has even announced they are stopping production of the 1B version (Olive Drab Strap) due to being only a limited run of them. However, you can still purchase the -1 which is the one in black. As far as the new Mudmaster, what a waste of technology and hipe if its not solar. I get the feeling like they rushed the watch into production for some reason without working out the details for the solar technology to be employed in this model. It would be extremely more enticing if it would be a solar watch. The battery life according to the article is a mere two years; but I’m if you actually used the watch for its desire purpose the life of the battery will be less. I t would absolutely suck to be in the middle of a land navigation exercise and have your batter die on you. How disappointing to know its not solar powered. Thus, there is no actual model of an existing Mudmaster that can compare or compete with the Big Brother the GWG1000-1A3 whicb it is solar powered.

The solar panels for the solar Carbon Core Guard models (like the GWR-B1000 and GST-B200) are in the subdials. There was nowhere to put the solar panels on the GG-B100 unless the bearing indicator on the upper half was removed. The GG-1000 with Twin Sensor seems to have sold very well despite it being non-solar. You can always go with the solar-powered Mudmaster GWG-1000.

Yes disappointing that’s it’s not solar. I really like the look of his watch and it would be a great addition to my collection of G’s but no solar, I may have to thick twice. Come Casio get a grip.

Even a solar watch is must be opened up every 2-3 years to lubricate the gaskets, and to make a leakage test after that to ensure waterproofness. Solar is not for long service intervals, but for intensive use.

Okay, Mission Log. The smartphone plots GPS data of the smartphone to the app in the smartphone.
What is the purpose of the watch here?

I haven’t seen the instructions for the GG-B100 yet but it is probably similar to the GMW-B5000’s Time & Place function where you can record a time and location (on the smartphone app) with a single button press on the watch. This allows you to leave your phone in your pocket and can be helpful in situations where taking your phone out would be inconvenient. So yes, with this feature the watch is dependent on the smartphone and is acting as a remote control. Why would taking out your phone be inconvenient? Maybe you are driving, running, fishing, taking photos, eluding capture in the night, or doing any number of other things. If you want to record many points as quickly as possible, it is probably easier to press a button on the watch than it is to take the phone out, unlock the lock screen, open an app, and record a location every time. Also, you may be in a location where the sun is extremely bright or there is extreme weather like heavy snow or monsoon rain, making it even more difficult to use the smartphone. Also, you may be engaged in an activity where there is a high risk of dropping the smartphone. Unlike a phone, the watch is securely attached to your wrist and cannot be dropped.

Je trouve que cette nouvelle Mudmaster est tout à fait au niveau de son prix.
Elle ne possède pas le solaire, pas de verre saphire mais un capteur en plus par rapport à la GWG-1000. La GWG-1000 est plus chère et justifie simplement la technologie embarquée et la mise à lheure par fréquence radio. Je pense que Casio à voulu faire un modèle Mudmaster complète mais moins honéreuse, donc il faut bien en tenir compte dans sa conception.

[Google Translation: I think this new Mudmaster is quite at the level of its price.
It does not have the solar, no sapphire glass but a sensor in addition to the GWG-1000. The GWG-1000 is more expensive and simply justifies the embedded technology and the clocking by radio frequency. I think that Casio wanted to make a complete model Mudmaster but less expensive, so we must take into account in its design.]

It will be released in Japan and Asia in July 2019, so most likely sometime in August for the U.S. and Europe.

I love tough solar too but why useless? Is it so hard to change the battery every 2-3 years? It will probably display a low battery warning too.

I will consider this watch seriously. Why? Because it does not use tough solar.
We have had enough of tough solar watches… All of them eventually fogged up. Misting under the glass display. Not to mention the tough solar cell which has issues not being able to be charged fully. I agree if this model does not require a tough solar. I have been through adventures and the last thing I need is a fogged up watch. Whether the 2025 battery will last more than a year or not is not an issue. If you are a serious adventurer, your watch need attention every time you complete a task. Especially a heavy task. I also hope that this watch does not suffer the issue of hour / minute / second hand inaccuracy or failure to return to the correct location, as experienced with the G-shock gulfmaster triple and quad sensor.

I notice the price range for this new Quad mudmaster is more in line with the GG1000 (£300 mark) rather than the GWG 1000 (£660). Although it has almost (no solar) all the tech the gwg 1000 has, more, if you consider the Bluetooth /smartphone and pedometer etc)
So my question is, is this a great upgrade to the GG1000 rather than an upgrade for the GWG1000 (as I’ve never heard of anything to be upgraded yet cheaper than the older version) . Or is there a specific upgrade in the pipeline for the GWG1000 (which id expect for the price to have solar and maybe even more going on than this new one)
Cheers.

Yes, I would consider it more of an “upgrade” to the GG-1000 than the GWG-1000. Actually, the Gravitymaster GPW-2000 has a lower list price ($800) than the GPW-1000 ($950), but that’s the only one I can think of. Not sure about any upgrade to the GWG-1000 that is coming.

I can’t find a manual for GG-B100-1a I have searched everywhere. They ask for a number on back case, I don’t have a number on it.

Dennis
Dennis

So after checking the manual I think I already got my answer, but I’m asking anyway to be sure.
There’s a Casio promo video that says, that you can set a location on the App and then use the direction indicator to go there.
But from what I’ve seen so far, and stated in the manual, you can only set your current location and use the location indicator for returning later. So that’s not really a navigating feature, is it?
