Casio's Edifice EQB900; the watch racers helped design

Among its products is the EQB900 chronograph, designed with smartphone link capabilities and developed with the input from professional race car drivers, who were behind the installation of a functionality to manage individual race laps times.

Linkage with a smartphone app has led to development of stopwatch functions that are useful for managing and employing actual race data. As stated, these functions were developed based on suggestions from pro racing teams, and of course, spectators will also find many uses for them.

Keeping with the spirit of motorsports, the watch is finished with a racing design, including a retrograde hand that mimics a tachometer. Casio's brand also adorns the livery of the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula 1 team with drivers Pierre Gasly and Brendon Hartley

For those always on the move and traveling, this bluetooth-controlled chronograph is especially convenient as it corrects the displayed home time and world time automatically via smartphone four times a day. A simple push of a button switches to the new local time when crossing time zones.

Once connected with your smartphone, the Casio app will include world time for over 300 cities, a target time indicator, phone finder and stopwatch data transfer capabilities.
