Casio has revealed the all-new G-Shock GPW-2000 Gravitymaster to be released in Japan on May 19, 2017. The GPW-2000 is the top G-Shock in the Gravitymaster aviation line. The major new features of this advanced high-end watch are Bluetooth connectivity and GPS positioning tracking. The debut models are the GPW-2000-1AJF and the GPW-2000-1A2JF with a blue IP bezel. (Update: Casio is releasing the GPW2000-1A in May 2017 with a list price of $800 USD.)

GPS hybrid radio wave timekeeping was the major feature of the previous generation GPW-1000 Gravitymaster, and allows the watch to sync the time anywhere in the world. With 3 Way Time Sync, the GPW-2000 retains the GPS/Multi-Band 6 timekeeping feature and can now sync through time servers on the internet by automatically connecting to a smartphone at a preset time. The Bluetooth capability allows the watch to link to the G-Shock Connected smartphone app for automatic time adjustment, world time setting, and a flight log GPS mapping function. The app can also easily change the watch settings for the home time, alarm, and operation sound toggle.

The GPW-2000 remains an all-analog Tough Solar-powered watch with an aircraft-inspired display featuring a world time subdial, a 24-hour subdial, and date/day displays. The GPW-2000 expands on the GPS hybrid timekeeping-only feature of other top G-Shock models like the MTG-G1000 and MRG-G1000 by also providing GPS positioning information. There are latitude and longitude displays at the 9 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions. There is also a flight log function activated by a watch button that records time and positioning information on the map of a connected smartphone. Casio America is calling this feature “Mission Stamp.”

The GPW-2000 has a sportier look than the GPW-1000 with more resin around the stainless steel bezel, but it remains almost the same size. It is slightly wider, thinner, and heavier measuring 66.0 x 57.2 x 18.2 mm and weighing 198 grams. The face has a similar look with its large 3D index and subdials. The second hand is made of carbon fiber and the display uses sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating. The resin bands have carbon fiber inserts and a metal strap keeper. A new feature is the screwless band attachment design to prevent the bands from coming loose due to vibration. The Triple G Resist structure provides protection against shock, vibration, and centrifugal gravity (g-force). The watch also has a JIS Class 1 anti-magnetic structure.
