Casio G-Shock Frogman | The Perfect Diving Watch


There are several features that are associated with Casio’s wristwatches – toughness, precision, ingenuity, aesthetics and craftsmanship – and the company’s G-Shock range certainly fits the description. Today, we are featuring the Frogman G-Shock GF-1000-1DR diving watch which is an absolute must-have any diver and outdoor enthusiast.

Casio really outdid themselves with the Frogman. This is a watch that is packed full of useful and innovative features. The case is made from stainless steel that provides 200-metre water resistance and, as such, is perfect for divers. This watch also features a high precision pressure sensor that gives you accurate and real-time data on your depth as well as the patented G-Shock Triple Sensor technology.

The Frogman can be submerged by up to 200 meters and even displays real-time dive depth readings so that you always know how deep you are.

The lens is made from sapphire crystal glass and it also has LED backlighting. Apart from that, the Frogman provides time in thirty-one different time zones (48 cities) in addition to coordinated universal time with ± 15 second accuracy. It can measure dive time in one-second-increments plus it has three measuring modes – elapsed time, split time and first / second place time countdown timer, and a calendar up to year 2099.  If you struggle to get out of bed, the Frogman also offers four one-time alarms and one snooze alarm.

The Frogman not only looks good but also features a super tough stainless steel case that was made to handle anything that you can throw at it.

The G-Shock Frogman is a solar-powered watch with a rechargeable battery that can last up to 10 months without exposure to light. It comes with a 2-year-warranty, and although some users report that it is heavier than other G-Shock watches, it still feels comfortable on the wrist. It weighs 115gr (4 ounces) and measures 58.3 x 52.8 x 18 mm (or 2.29 x 2.07 x 0.7 inches).
