The RANGEMAN GW-9400 watches are the latest additions to the “Master of G” series and provide functions, construction and operability designed to support the wearer, even in survival situations. The new watches incorporate triple sensors to measure compass bearing, altitude/atmospheric pressure, and temperature—a first for a G-SHOCK watch. Users can check compass bearing information in situations with limited visibility for orienting, or use barometric information to forecast sudden changes in weather, making these G-SHOCK watches reliable partners in situations where there is little room for error.
The RANGEMAN watches are equipped with a dedicated triple-sensor button that can start measurement with a single press. This is useful in situations where every second matters, such as rescue operations and ranger duties. Each sensor mode can be set to have a unique notification sound, so the user can confirm the triggered sensor mode in the dark, without looking at the watch face. The stopwatch and time stamp function, which records the time, can also be activated with one press of a button.
The case design features a newly developed cylinder structure to guard the sensor button, enhancing shock-resistance and making the button easier to press.
The new G-SHOCK models are reliable partners for rangers and rescuers who work in harsh environments, combining toughness with expanded sensor-based features. As with other “Master of G” series watches, the back is engraved, this time with a stylized image of a wild cat, a creature known to roam freely in the jungle, symbolizing the strength to survive harsh environments.
