Did you like how small the M5610 was? The GW-5000 is quite small
too. You’re looking at a 1.69 inch (43 mm) device.
The GW-5000 looks identical to the M5610. In turn, it’s reminiscent of the DW-1000 as well. This is mainly due to its rectangular case and plastering of ‘Protection’ on its bezel.
Being a G-Shock, it’s no surprise that the GW-5000 has a resin case, bezel, and strap
. The material’s soft, just like on its brother.
The timepiece is a solar-powered watch, so your life is easier. Unfortunately, it can’t last 10 months
once fully charged. Instead, you only get 6
. If it’s any consolation, its time-saving mode extends its battery life considerably. How does 18 months sound to you?
What’s more, it syncs with atomic clocks
through radio waves, similar to its counterpart.
How did you feel about the automatic backlight
on the M5610? The GW-5000 is no different. Just flick your wrist to a 40-degree angle, and voila!
We have to talk about its water resistance. You get a timepiece that can withstand 660 feet (200 m) underwater. Having a resin body makes it super waterproof.
Like the M5610, you get the Casio 3159 movement. It needs no introduction.
