(MENAFN Press) Casio Middle East announced today the release of its RANGEMAN watches, the latest addition to its G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches. These tough watches are equipped with triple sensors whose rich functionality provides support for the wearer, even in survival situations

Since the release of the original G-SHOCK watch in 1983, the brand has continued to evolve, with construction and design all based on outstanding shock-resistance. As part of the G-SHOCK line, the "Master of G" series of watches is designed for use in the most extreme environments with some models featuring rust-resistant, dust-resistant, or mud-resistant construction. These watches have been well received for delivering the ultimate in toughness and performance

The RANGEMAN GW-9400 watches are the latest additions to the "Master of G" series and provide functions, construction and operability designed to support the wearer, even in survival situations.

The new watches incorporate triple sensors to measure compass bearing, altitude/atmospheric pressure, and temperature-a first for a G-SHOCK watch. Users can check compass bearing information in situations with limited visibility for ienting, or use barometric information to forecast sudden changes in weather, making these G-SHOCK watches reliable partners in situations where there is little room for error

The RANGEMAN watches are equipped with a dedicated triple-sensor button that can start measurement with a single press. This is useful in situations where every second matters, such as rescue operations and ranger duties. Each sensor mode can be set to have a unique notification sound, so the user can confirm the triggered sensor mode in the dark, without looking at the watch face. The stopwatch and time stamp function, which records the time, can also be activated with one press of a button

The case design features a newly developed cylinder structure to guard the sensor button, enhancing shock-resistance and making the button easier to press

The new G-SHOCK models are reliable partners for rangers and rescuers who work in harsh environments, combining toughness with expanded sensor-based features.

The RANGEMAN watches are priced at AED 1,295 and are now available at G-Factory store in Al Ghurair Centre (04 2525217) as well as the G-Factory store in Lamcy Plaza (04 3352979) in Dubai.
