Do you, like us, love the Casio G-Shock GA-2100 — often referred to by fans as the “CasiOak?” Well, it’s even better now, worth bringing to your attention thanks to the 2022 upgrades.
Coming to the US in June, the new inclusion of the brand’s tough solar technology takes the fashionable GA-2100 watches to a new level – but the best part is, even with these premium features, the CasiOak is still extremely affordable – and just as much fun as ever.
In any G-Shock watch, there are certain features worth seeking out — and the GA-B2100 (with a “B” added to the name, just so you know) has them. As with any watch, you want strong clarity, but with G-Shocks we always recommend paying a slight premium for models with rugged solar. That’s Casio’s name for light-charging technology (it works with any light, not just sunlight), which keeps your watch running without needing to change the battery — potentially for decades. The older GA-2100 series without solar charging is indeed an ephemeral fashion item with a three-year battery life; Now, that’s one Serious G-Shock.
In addition to Tough Solar, the new watches also offer Bluetooth connectivity for more features via smartphone link; It won’t be a full-fledged smartwatch with notifications and the like, but it will offer some handy features like “Find My Phone”. It also features recent (but not new) upgrades like Casio’s Carbon Core Guard, a carbon structure within a plastic case that helps increase general durability.
First introduced in 2019, the GA-2100 became an unexpected smash hit. Although not on the same level as the Moonwatch craze, these simple plastic watches sold and became coveted items. This has something to do with their resemblance to other octagonal watch icons, such as Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak, from which it derives its playful nickname, the Casio.
These are the slim, interesting-looking GA-2100 watches that have taken the world by storm — only better. The upgrades will be available in five different color versions of the GA-B2100 in June 2022 – but we can confidently expect more variations in the future. Unless you want yellow, you can get either version for $150; That will cost you $10 more.
