I’ve been eyeing for an alternative for my Casio G-Shock GW9300 Mudman for quite a while. During BaselWorld 2013, Casio announced the Casio G-Shock Rangeman prototype as shown below, and I’m smitten by the crown design which is like the new Casio GW-A1100 Sky Cockpit series and not to mention, the rugged illume button and the features that’s traditionally only available in Protrek models.
Now with the new updates from AblogtoWatch.com, some new high definition pictures are available for viewing and the pricing is more or less fixed at USD$300. I think the pricing is decent with the features available as Protrek or even Sky Cockpit costs more than this. Of course this does not contain all features from both Protrek and Sky Cockpit line but certainly, the looks and features of the new Rangeman appeals to me and it’s going to be an alternative to my GW9300 Mudman for sure. Rangeman is coming our way by November 2013.
