New MUDMASTER Tough to the Core

(Sponsored post) With its all-new case design, the G-SHOCK MUDMASTER GGB100 combines new sensors with G-SHOCK’s innovative Carbon Core Guard construction. These high-tech features are built into the new case, and then topped with a high-tech carbon insert fiber bezel.

Why carbon fiber? Because it’s a perfect material to use to build an ultra-tough watchcase. Carbon has ten times the strength of iron at one-fourth its weight, and acquires excellent shock absorption.

The new Mudmaster GGB100 bezel is topped with a clear resin to expose the familiar carbon fiber pattern.

G-SHOCK’s Carbon Core Guard also includes carbon as its primary material. G-SHOCK here is integrating the MUDMASTER GGB100 carbon case and stainless steel and resin back cover that protects the timekeeping module within from external shock. That stainless-steel panel keeps the watch airtight while the fine resin caseback helps the watch retain its impressive shock resistance.

Carbon Core Guard integrates the case and back cover.

As a bonus, these protections have made it possible for G-SHOCK to eliminate the familiar guard parts from the buttons on the sides of the case. Aesthetically, the watch’s caseback design is inspired from the gasoline tanks carried on off-road vehicles often used on muddy, rough roads.

The new design makes it possible for G-SHOCK to eliminate the familiar guard parts from the buttons on the sides of the case.

Within this tough exterior, G-SHOCK now includes quad sensors, one of those an accelerometer for step tracking. Other sensors include digital compass, altimeter/barometer and thermometer.

When used in combination with the G-SHOCK Connected app, many other helpful functions become available, including:

• Mission Log function: The altitude measured by the watch and the course obtained from a smartphone’s GPS are automatically recorded to an app. An altitude point can be manually acquired and plotted on the map.

• Calorimeter: By measuring altitude and step count, the watch can calculate calories burned by taking into account altitude variations.

• Location Indicator: Records current location in an app. Display shows recorded destinations by the seconds hand, and the distance on the LCD.

• Mode/display switching customization

• Automatic time adjustment

• Automatic altitude adjustment

• World time for over 300 cities

• Phone Finder

The G-SHOCK MUDMASTER GGB100 is available in military themes in black, green and orange. They are available at G-SHOCK retailers, including select Macy’s, jewelers, gshock.com, and the G-SHOCK Soho Store. Price: $350.
