• Finally, a G-Shock Smartwatch



    Well, that only took five years... As soon as I received my custom-made Nixon Mission back in 2016 two realizations immediately came to mind:

    1. I have a thing for ruggedized watches;
    2. What I really wanted was a G-Shock running Wear OS.

    Fast-forward to this morning when yours truly spots this beast on G-Central—it's apparently the GSW-H1000, and not an April Fool's joke. They grabbed the image from Casio's German G-Shock portal but I can't seem to find it; there's also evidence of a prototype in a post from last December. Here's what we know about specs:

    As expected, the GSW-H1000-1 runs Wear OS by Google and has an optical heart rate monitor. Like the Casio Pro Trek smartwatches, it has a dual-layer touchscreen made of mineral glass, with a color screen (320×300) and a power-saving monochrome screen. The GSW-H1000-1 has a resin case and band, and like all G-Shock watches, it is shock-resistant and water-resistant to 200 meters.
    It's expected to retail for $699 USD when made official in May or June of this year. That's quite a bit more than than $199 CAD I paid for my current Garmin Instinct (on sale), but I wouldn't hesitate for a second to add this to my collection of Pro-Trek smartwatches. And yes, I have all of them!

    Finally got my current numbers "ported" to the new SIMs.

    Data is a bit sluggish, and Voicemail is all new (brand new back end apparently) and voicemail isn't currently working for one line.

    How was that done? As much as I'm aware, Tello only sells customer cellular service month by month, and not multiple months at a time.
