DOVER, N.J., July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether it's a local stay-cation or a lengthy trip abroad, Casio America, Inc. offers consumers the perfect accessory for any trip – the EDIFICE EQB-600D. This new timepiece combines bold style with state-of-the-art timekeeping technology, making it a must-have item for any upcoming trips. It is available now and comes equipped with features including Smart Phone Link, Tough Solar Power, 3D Globe Dial and water resistance up to 100 meters.
"Travelers that are embarking on a trip – long or short, near or far – need tools that they can count on, and Casio's EQB-600D includes quality features that our consumers have come to expect," said David Johnson, Vice President of Casio's Timepiece Division. "This new timepiece provides everything that travelers could possibly need, from smartphone compatibility and a phone finder, to multi-city time displays and a long-lasting battery."
To help seamlessly keep track of things at home, the EQB-600D's main dial displays the Home Time (the time and date of the user's current home city), while the inset dome-shaped dial displays the current time zone in the selected World Time city in a 24-hour format over a world map. In addition, the EQB-600D can connect to a smartphone with the push of a button through Casio's Mobile Link Technology. By downloading the CASIO WATCH+ app and connecting to a compatible smartphone via Bluetooth® SMART, the watch can access the correct time in its current location and for over 300 cities worldwide, even correcting for Daylight Saving Time if needed.
With Casio's Tough Solar Power, the EQB-600D eliminates the need for battery changes on long road-trips or flights. After a full charge, the timepiece has a battery life of approximately seven months. To avoid a potential vacation-crisis, the timepiece's phone finder function also provides the ability to help find a lost device by connecting to it and having it emit a sound to help find its location, even if the phone is on silent.
Casio's EDIFICE EQB-600D is available at select jewelry and watch retailers nationwide for a MSRP of $400. For additional information on Casio's EDIFICE collection of timepieces, please visit www.EDIFICE.Casio.com.
