*The ultraviolet LED offers safety corresponding to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard for Class 1M. However, an optical lens such as a magnifying glass must not be used for direct viewing of the ultraviolet light source.

Casio also utilized its advanced technologies to refine the functionality of these watches to meet the requirements of pilots. The new watch is the first analog-type G-SHOCK to be equipped with twin sensors for measuring compass bearing and temperature. With just a push of the large button in the 9 o’clock position, the second hand turns and points north based on data from the built-in compass sensor.

There is also a bearing memory function that allows the user to display and save intended direction in the watch’s memory, as an aid for navigation. The temperature sensor can be used to check the temperature in the cockpit or other locations.
