Casio America, Inc. released the G-Shock RISEMAN, the world's first watch to feature the Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping Technology. Along with solar-powered technology, the Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping feature enables the watch to receive time calibration radio signals from six transmitters worldwide one in the US, two in Japan, and one each in China, Germany and the UK. For superior display accuracy, the signals are received up to six times a day.
Inspired by those who challenge high altitudes, the Casio G-Shock Riseman Multi-Band 6 Watch features twin sensors for both pressure and temperature in a shock-resistant case. This new G-SHOCK watch is equipped to measure altitude, barometric pressure as well as air temperature. Also, the RISEMAN features a full range of measurement functions, and boasts a unique three-layer protection structure to protect and enclose the pressure sensor.
The RISEMAN is a perfect example of Casio G-SHOCK's commitment to both function and technology, Casio G-Shock has been and always will be consummate innovators. We are pleased to be the first to introduce the Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology to the marketplace.
Always on the cutting edge, Casio has improved the sensor-based measurement system. The Casio G-Shock Riseman Multi-Band 6 Watch's altimeter can record measurements using both the stopwatch and the altimeter simultaneously. This versatile feature can capture recorded time along with changes in altitude, elapsed time, total ascent and descent altitude, and highest and lowest altitude. Capable of measuring altitude at five-second intervals, the watch is able to handle altitude changes over very short intervals of time, a useful function for sports enthusiasts involved in rock climbing, mountain biking, and back country skiing.
With the mountain-based athletes in mind, the RISEMAN possesses a smooth back to reduce the gap between the watch and the wrist for a comfortable fit, while the band configuration prevents sweat from gathering. Additionally, the dragon has been chosen as the RISEMAN's back emblem for its mythical ability to fly by manipulating the weather.SpecificationsConstruction: Shock resistanceWater resistance: 200 metersRadio frequencies: WWVB (USA): 60 kHz, JJY (Japan): 40 kHz (Fukushima) / 60 kHz (Kyushu), MSF (UK): 60 kHz, DCF77 (Germany): 77.5kHz, BPC (China): 68.5kHzRadio wave reception: Automatic reception (maximum 6 times per day) and manual reception optionsBarometer: Display range: 260hPa - 1,100hPa (7.65 to 32.45 inHg), atmospheric pressure tendency graph (past 24 hours graph display), atmospheric pressure differential graphic (arrows displaying the latest trends in atmospheric pressure)Altimeter: Display range: -700m - 10,000m (-2,300 to 32,800 ft.), cumulative altitude memory (memory works together with the stopwatch to record elapsed time, cumulative ascent and descent altitudes, highest and lowest altitude recorded); manual altitude memory (up to a maximum of 20 memory sets, with each set recording the altitude and the time and date measured); altitude tendency graph display; pace arrows (arrows that indicate the rate of ascent or descent.)Thermometer: Display range: -10 C up to 60 degrees C (14 F to 140 degrees F)Stopwatch: 1/100 second, measuring capacity: 24 hours, split timeWorld time: 33 cities (29 time zones, daylight saving on/off, +UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) displayCountdown timer: Set unit: 1 minute; countdown range: maximum 24 hours; measuring unit: 1 secondAlarm: 5 independent daily alarms (of which 1 snooze alarm), hourly time signalOthers: Battery level indicator, full auto-calendar, function to change display between home time and local time, button operation tones on/offEL backlight: Full auto EL light with afterglowPower source: Tough Solar power system (high-capacity solar-charging system)Continuous operation: About 6 months with the power-saving function* ON after full chargeDisplay shuts off after a certain period in a dark locationSize of case / Total weight: 2.01" x 1.93" x .63" /2.15 oz
