Once connected, the watches can access the time in their current location and for up to 300 different cities worldwide, even updating automatically for time zone and Daylight Saving Time changes. In addition, Casio’s Mobile Link Technology provides enhanced accuracy by automatically syncing to a time server on the internet four times a day or can be easily synced by a one-push reset instead of having to hold down a button.

Additionally, Casio’s Tough Solar Power technology allows for the EQB501D-1A and EQB501DB-2A to be charged in low or fluorescent light.

The EQB501D-1A ($300) and EQB501DB-2A ($320) are also designed with a 3D dial, a speed indicator, an alarm, a stopwatch and are water resistant up to 100 meters.
