Digital Life Awards 2015: The most innovative product
Casio G-Shock GPW-1000.

Editor's choice:
Casio G-Shock GPW-1000

The host of unique features that this watch packs under the hood, helped it to sweep both Editor's and Readers' Choice awards.

Using GPS and radio signals, it adjusts the time automatically whenever it crosses timezones, a real boon for the jet-lagged frequent flyer.

Recharging the watch is easy too. Eight minutes of direct sunlight is enough to power the device for a day. A full charge of 27 hours will keep the watch running for seven months.

Casio also has clumsy users covered. Scratch-resistant sapphire glass protects the watch face and a tough, diamond-like carbon coating shields the bezel.

Completing the rugged and tough character of the watch is its resin watchband, which is strengthened with carbon fibre.
