Casio is adding two more resin-band models to the G-Shock GMW-B5000 stainless steel square family. The GMW-B5000G-1 has a black IP bezel with an STN LCD display and the GMW-B5000G-2 has a blue IP bezel with a reverse STN LCD display. Both models also have IP-treated black buckles, black buttons, and band keepers (of their respective color) along with a black resin band which is made of soft urethane. These models also have a DLC-coated screw-lock case back.
Notable features include Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio wave timekeeping, and Bluetooth mobile link. Through the G-Shock Connected smartphone app, the Bluetooth connection provides easy watch setting, automatic time adjustment, a time and place log, reminder alerts, a battery level indicator, and a phone finder function.
The previously released GMW-B5000-1 also offers a (silver) stainless steel bezel with a resin band.
The GMW-B5000G-1JF and GMW-B5000G-2JF will be released in April 2019 in Japan with a list price of ¥56,000 JPY each. The GMW-B5000G-1 and GMW-B5000G-2 will also be released in other Asian countries.
Update: The GMWB5000G-1 and GMWB5000G-2 were released in the U.S. with a list price of $450 USD each.
