Casio Bolsters Edifice Collection With Two New Super Slim Connected Timepieces


New Models Offer Compact Design and Bluetooth Connectivity

DOVER, NJ, February 25, 2020 Today, Casio America, Inc. is excited to announce the addition of two new models to its sophisticated, EDIFICE collection of timepieces – the super slim EQB1000XD-1A and EQB1000XDC-1A. Designed to go from the boardroom to the ballpark, the new EQB1000XD timepieces sport a sleek, slim case design – 30 percent thinner than previous models – and are equipped with a variety of features including Bluetooth connectivity and Casio’s Tough Solar Technology.

To provide an additional layer of accurate timekeeping, the EQB1000XD timepieces can be paired to a smartphone with just a push of a button. By downloading the CASIO WATCH+ app and connecting to a compatible smartphone via Bluetooth® technology, the watches can access the correct time in their current location and for up to 300 cities worldwide, even updating with the latest time zone and daylight saving time information. Additionally, the new timepieces offer Dual Dial World Time which enables users to view the current time, in addition to the time in another time zone simultaneously. A sub-dial also indicates a.m. or p.m. at a glance. This keeps users on time, all the time, no matter where they happen to be.

The new EQB1000XD-1A and EQB1000XDC-1A also features enhanced charging technology that can efficiently store energy for power as well as maintain a charge. Casio’s Tough Solar technology consists of a solar panel system that converts light to energy and virtually eliminates the need for constant battery changes. It can even be charged in low or fluorescent light. After a full-charge and without further exposure to light, the timepiece has a battery life of approximately five months. Additional features include water resistance up to 100 meters, a 1/1000th second stopwatch, 200 lap memory, a daily alarm, full auto calendar and more.

Casio’s EQB1000XD timepieces boast a sapphire crystal watch face with non-reflective coating and a stainless-steel case and band and will be available in two styles: black dial with red accents and a silver stainless steel band (EQB1000XD-1A; MSRP: $330); and black dial with blue accents and a black IP coated stainless-steel band (EQB1000XDC-1A; MSRP: $380).
