The Casio GW-400CJ should go for around $225, not countingshipping from Japan, and a generous tip for your Japanese connection.The folks over at WristDreams have picked up on the new vibrating Casio G-ShockGW-400CJ-1JF marine sports watch. I was justcommenting theother day on how Casio is reallypushing the limits of digital watches, and as if to prove my point, they announceone of the most interesting and feature-rich digital watches I've ever seen. Themost unique feature of the GW-400CJ is that the countdown timer, alarm, andtime signal can use a vibrating alarm rather than an audible one so that itcan be effectively used in high winds, while in the water, or in other situationswhere it's difficult to hear faint high-pitched beeps. The other thing that reallycaught my attention about this watch is the sheer number of features they packedinto it:Waveceptor. That means this watch is automatically calibratedthrough radio waves transmitted by atomic clocks. Works in both Japan and theUS.Tough Solar. Solar cells around the face keep the watch's battery charged, anda sophisticated power-saving function will keep the watch powered for up to19 months with no light.
