Casio recently invited me to take a look at their Spring Collection. One of the watches that I am interested in is the Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000TVB-1 Virtual World, a square full metal watch in Titanium.
It has an interesting black and brown camouflage pattern. And the specs and numbers of GMW-B5000 are laser-engraved on the bezel and the brand. I am not sure if this is a good thing or not.
It has Bluetooth and is able to sync information with your phone via an app (available on Android or iOS). It is not a smartwatch. The data that can be synced is limited to time, world times and etc.
It has the Casio Tough solar power system that can last 10 months without sunlight when fully charged.
Check out my short interaction with it.

G-SHOCK UNVEILS THE NEW FULL METAL GMW-B5000TVB VIRTUAL WORLD
Singapore, June 2022 — G-SHOCK has announced the release of GMW-B5000TVB Virtual World, a new addition to the square full-metal 5000 series in titanium. The specs or numbers of GMW-B5000 are laser-engraved on the bezel and the band. And the watch is colored by a series of surface treatments and a geometric black and brown ion-plated (IP) camouflage pattern. The lugs of the bezel have holes to reveal the fine-resin component. These designs are to reproduce high-spec virtual world gear, and this watch is made of titanium to reduce weight.
In terms of functions, this watch can be linked to your phone and gives you automatic time adjustment, world time setting, and many more that are easy to use through the G-SHOCK connected app. The watch also has the original Casio Tough Solar power system, Multiband 6 radio wave reception, and a full-auto LED backlight.
This GMW-B5000TVB-1DR will be available at https://gshock.casio.com/sg/ and in all G-SHOCK stores in the middle of June 2022.
