Casio Expands Edifice With Racing-Inspired EQB800

(Sponsored Post) Inspired by motorsports, Casio’s new Edifice EQB800 is a high-performance watch that enhances your time-tracking options by using smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth. Simply pair the watch to your smart phone with just a push of a button through Casio’s Mobile Link Technology.

Developed with assistance from racecar drivers, the Edifice EQB800 features Casio’s new Time Attack Recording, a nifty feature that allows the wearer to track and record racing and target times as well as to see a list of their best lap times.

The Edifice EQB-800DB allows you to enhance your time-tracking options by using smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth.

Off the track, the Edifice EQB800 can access the correct time in its current location and for up to 300 cities worldwide, even updating with the latest time zone and Daylight Saving Time information. It also has improved accuracy by automatically syncing, via phone, to a timeserver on the internet four times a day. Or, the user can opt to sync it by a one-push reset.

And it does all this while looking stylish on your wrist.

The Edifice EQB800’s bold blue stainless steel bezel is set off by the thick, powerful-looking index and hands, which also displays the watch’s smartphone connection status and battery level. A dual-coil motor drives retrograde hand movements that express speed like a tachometer while also displaying stopwatch measurement values in 1/20-second increments.

Solar Power

The EQB800 also features Casio’s Tough Solar Power, which essentially means there’s a tiny solar panel system built in to the watch that converts light to electricity and eliminates the need for battery changes. It can even be charged in low or fluorescent light. After a full-charge and without further exposure to light, the timepiece has a battery life of approximately five months.

The timepiece is also water resistant up to 100 meters and protected with a scratch resistant mineral crystal. Additional features include a stopwatch, daily alarm, lap memory, Phone Finder, and more.

Casio’s EDIFICE EQB800 is available for $350 at select jewelry and watch retailers, G-SHOCK Soho Store as well as ShopCasio. For additional information on Casio’s EDIFICE collection of timepieces, please visit www.EDIFICE.Casio.com.
