Casio have announced four new models in the second iteration of their Bluetooth G-Shocks. The G-Shock GB-5600B comes in four fresh colorways and will connect to your bluetooth v.4 mobile (basically iphone) to ensure you are never off grid.
Casio are refreshing an old favorite for the October 2013 new release. The DW-5500 was originally released back in the 80s and is thought of by collectors (and Casio themselves) as the origin of the Mudman line with it's shrouded buttons. The DW-5500 was refreshed to the GW-5500 for the 00s and now sees a further refresh to become the GW-5510 for 2013. The difference? One more band to take this model up to multiband6, ideal for reader in China. Two models are getting released initially, the G-Shock GW-5510-1JF and G-Shock GW-5510-1BJF, both are quite traditional in appearance, let's hope we see some exciting collabs and colorways over the coming months.
Casio don't hang around. The all new G-Shock GD-X6900 line we brought you last month has already been added to with the GD-X6900-7JF and GD-X6900-1JF both out October 2013. Looks a strong start for the all new GD-X6900 line, can't wait to see the first collaborations and limited editions :D
