What do you think about this new casioak?

A newsletter came to my mailbox today and it was about new G-Shock watches.

I think I like this dial design. I might not buy it right away cause it's not that different from my current G-Shock, but I'm considering it seriously (thank god it's not a limited edition!)

Plus, it provides Bluetooth with a solar charge function, which my G-Shock doesn't have. And the price is adequate at least, (37,400Yen - I live in Japan! - so around 330$ I guess?)

It also comes in other colors

I know that it all comes down to a person's own taste, but I'm just curious! What do you all think about this one?

Bluetooth, solar and positive display makes it a winner in my book!!

I like it

It's really nice to see the metal CasiOaks get solar, Bluetooth, etc. Great looking watch. There's a reasonable argument for that watch being the only piece one needs.

Smart move to get the negative display off of 2 of these (Wish it was all 3). I think that will definitely help push these, as that is a primary complaint I鈥檝e seen with most new models.

The three essential things on any G-Shock in my opinion, especially tough solar.

I agree. I wanted the green dial but the negative display puts me off. Still, glad they choose to make it only one haha

Yup pretty nice. Not my exact color though. Also I've not tried that strap type on wrist yet.

So true! Negative display has no business being in a window as small as those found on the CasiOaks. If someone wants a negative display, get one with MIP!

Does anyone know if there are aftermarket strap options that one can use with these half-metal models?

I can find some from the Amazon, and also it seems like some are selling adaptor to connect regular straps. (Sorry for Japanese haha. I'm not Japanese but trying to learn while living in Japan!)
