The Mudmaster enters a new era with the Carbon Core Guard structure and Bluetooth…
G-Shock is releasing the all-new Mudmaster GG-B100 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 and a carbon fiber bezel.
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 will have 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, flight log, mission log, calorie consumption display, and automatic altitude correction.
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 resin parts placed over the bezel.
The GG-B100 will launch in three colorways in July 2019 with the black GG-B100-1AJF, green GG-B100-1A3JF, and orange GG-B100-1A9JF. Casio America also announced the GGB100-1A3 for an August 2019 release with a list price of $350.
Updates: 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. 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.
