DOVER, N.J., Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With technology dominating holiday gift lists year after year, Casio America, Inc. is excited to offer a wide variety of consumer technology products this season. Whether you need to purchase gifts for fitness enthusiasts, business travelers, or musicians, Casio offers something for everyone.
"At Casio, we know our consumers are constantly looking for the newest, cutting edge tech gear that is fashionable, fun, and functional," said Shigenori Itoh, CEO of Casio America, Inc. "This holiday season, Casio is encouraging consumers to create new memories and traditions from learning a new instrument to screening holiday movies on a big screen. With this in mind, Casio's wide range of products is sure to please everyone on your shopping list."
For the Musician
For the budding Beethoven, Casio's new CGP-700 is an affordable and space-friendly solution. At the hub of the piano is the 5.3" color touch screen which makes it easy to navigate through the built in tones and rhythms using simple touch and swipe gestures. The superior design and feel of the CGP-700 is comparable to an acoustic piano, yet compact enough for the smallest room, and can be used with or without the included stand. The CGP-700 has four speakers in the top panel and two low frequency speakers in the stand, so whether you're enjoying the sound of a 9-foot concert grand piano, playing along with the built-in rhythms, or just listening to your MP3 player, the CGP-700 3-way speaker system will easily fill the room with holiday cheer.
For the Business Traveler
For the jet-setting businessman, the EDIFICE EQB-510 men's timepiece connects to a smartphone with just one 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, these watches can access the time for over 300 cities worldwide, even correcting for Daylight Saving Time, if needed. In addition the watch displays dual dial world time which shows the time in two zones simultaneously so you always know what time it is when calling home for the holidays. The EQB-510 is also water resistant up to 100 meters and features Casio's Tough Solar Power which eliminates the need for battery changes. After a full-charge and without further exposure to light, the EQB-510 has a battery life of approximately 34 months.
For the Athlete
The new BABY-G G-Lide BGA180 collection is designed for a girl on the go, whether she's catching a wave or heading out for a run. This new model is the first analog timepiece in the lineup to include a tide graph feature, along with its other standout features such as shock and 100M water resistance, thermometer and wave counter. Available in navy blue, baby blue and rusted pink colors, they are the perfect fashionable yet functional timepiece for any activity.
For the Gamer
For the video game fanatic, nothing beats a first-class upgrade to an existing game room than the chance to be a part of the action with Casio's new EcoLite XJ-V2 projector. Using laser and LED light sources, this LampFree® projector reaches maximum brightness in as little as five seconds so no one will miss a second of gameplay. Projection on screens can be as small as 30 inches or up to 300 inches allowing any gamer an experience they won't soon forget. Additionally, the XJ-V2 features a lifespan of up to 20,000 hours, eliminating the need for lamp replacements.
For the Student
With winter break rapidly approaching, encourage your favorite students to practice their math skills during the holiday break by using Casio's CLASSWIZ fx-991EX.
