Tokyo, September 15, 2016 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today that it will release the newest additions to the EDIFICE and SHEEN line of metal analog watches, for men and women respectively. The new models link to a smartphone and calibrate the time by connecting to Internet time servers.*
Since releasing the EDIFICE EQB-500D in 2014, Casio has continued to develop advanced analog watches that link with smartphones to calibrate the time and enable users to set functions from a smartphone app. The popular EDIFICE EQB-600D and SHEEN SHB-100, released earlier this year, can tell accurate time anywhere in the world by connecting to Internet time servers using an upgraded smartphone app.
The newest addition to the EDIFICE line for men is the EQB-700D, a new model in the smartphone link series. The face of the watch features dual curved glass, with a sleek case and clean-cut face layout that give the watch a stylish appearance. A battery indicator is positioned at the 10 o’clock position, so that the user can tell at a glance if the watch needs solar recharging.
The newest addition to the SHEEN line for women is the SHB-200, a new model in the Time Ring Series. The new watch features a World Time Dial with two rings designed to evoke diamond facets. The ring at the 6 o’clock position is finished using a special process that gives it a diamond-like shine, while the ring at the 8 o’clock position features a beautifully sparkling multifaceted finish.
The new watches link to a smartphone app that automatically connects to Internet time servers, sending accurate time data to calibrate the time four times a day. These high-performance analog watches offer various functions without any complexity, for instance making it easy to set world time from the smartphone app or to set local time with the press of a button when traveling internationally.
