As Christian noted, it ups the ante by adding the ability to sync to the Chinese radio signal, an excellent addition. There are still big portions of the world where signals are not yet available Australia, Africa, South America so know that this Casio will remain accurate within 15 seconds per month even if no signal arrives. But the Riseman GW goes a step further by also calibrating with the Solar powered. Water-resistant to meters, or about feet.

Now I can say that this one is the best of all G-Shock at the moment. In this review I will try to prove that phrase and will thank to Casio for this masterpiece.
I will start with my first look, when it arrived to me. It comes in very simple box. Just after it there were a solid metal can with stamped logos. At the moment I took it into my hand I realised it is quite light, contrary to how it look on the e-shop image. By turning it around one thing I see is the red button, which from first look is hidden.
Also nobody can not to miss the G letter on the stainless steal bar on the bottom. There is a very cleverly made light button. At the back of the clock is the Casio brand and the Flying dragon picture. Overall, the first impression was great. Nice touchy glass, pretty slim and cute metal are looking pretty decent. The second thing to look after will be the bunch of features it has. This small device is like a technological machine.
It has all kind of measurements. Starting by barometric pressure, altitude, temperature and ending by reasonably accurate weather patterns. What is more, watch gets the energy from the Sun, because it is using solar technology. To be more detailed, it sync with six different towers around the word, which are in US, Japan, Europe and China.
In this way, if the weather pressure is going down the simple arrow will point to down, if pressure is increasing, the arrow respectively will point to top. The Casio GW G-Shock Riseman also has a altimeter track function, which let you not only to see the altitude measurements. It also records the changes of altitude and finally gives you a nice graph. It also gives you a temperature gauge, but if you want to be perfectly sure about the temperature, you should place the clock somewhere, but not on your wrist, because small mistake could occur because of your own body temperature.
Every feature seems to work fine, but I was a little not sure how all these fancy things will fit into that small screen without a big complexity on buttons side.
I can say, Casio manage to surprise me. In the main timekeeping mode without all necessary details like time, day and date, on the red-eye it also shows atmospheric pressure. In other modes the times is also displayed, excluding the altimeter, which require a little more display space. I have already mentioned about almost everything. Except one of the main things: comfortability. I have some classic wristwatches as well as some sports one.
And sometimes besides all these fancy features, the one thing I notice is lack of comfort feeling. If you forgot about wearing something on your wrist, that proves that the model is comfortable. I have heard that some of timepieces have a problem for left-handed people, because they wear watches on the right wrist and time ffrom time the setting button are digging the arm. I tried to wear it on my right, but I can say it was totally normal.
I think this is because the button is greatly protected. I even started to wear it on the office everyday. By the way, they are also giving you two buckles, instead of one. It has everything, at the same moment it is very durable and not to complex for casual user. Or maybe you can? Although, good luck by searching. Great things: Current time is shown in almost all modes. Barometer graph always visible in timekeeping mode Atomic clock sync and solar powered Durable with Excellent and clear display Check today discount below:.

Review of the Casio Riseman GW-9200
What you gain, however, is a watch that is more in line with the G-Shock styling with the protected, recessed mineral crystal glass, and the plastic resin body that hides minor wear marks quite well. The round, silvery thing on the side is the sensor. The red button activates the altimeter mode. At first glance, the Riseman has a funny lump on the left side, which houses the sensor for the altimeter, barometer and thermometer.
