Casio G-Shock GW-9400 RANGEMAN Watch – New Addition to Master of G Collection

By - August 9th, 2013

FROGMAN, MUDMAN, GULFMAN, RISEMAN… Casio G-Shock’s quartet known as MASTER of G will be getting a new addition this year, in the form of the RANGEMAN. Officially known as the Casio G-Shock GW-9400 RANGEMAN watch, designers created the new timepiece with military personnel and first responders in mind.

“Rangeman embodies the same mentality as one who would go into battle. In many ways it is a salute to the first-response professionals and combatants that safeguard our lives.” – Shigenori Itoh, Chairman and CEO of Casio’s Timepiece Division

Thanks to recent advancements, Casio was able to produce even smaller electronic components, making the RANGEMAN one of the first to employ the new Shock Resistant Triple Sensor technology. With it, the watch can determine temperature, atmospheric pressure (accurate within 1 meter per second), along with the usual functions like 48-City World Time + UTC (universal coordinated time), 1000-hr stopwatch, 24-hr countdown timer, 12/24-hr time formats, and more… Again, because of the extreme condition users of RANGEMAN will be under, Casio made all of the real-time data points available through the watch’s one-touch direct sensor button. Constructed of metal, with an oversized, textured surface, the watch’s design ensures accessibility of information even with a gloved hand.

Rated to be waterproof under 200 meters (656 feet), the RANGEMAN employs Casio’s TOUGH SOLAR charging system and Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping that automatically adjust time/date through wireless signals from US Government’s Fort Collins, Colorado facility and 5 other transmission stations around the globe. To come in stealth black (Casio G-Shock GW-9400-1 RANGEMAN) and army green (Casio G-Shock GW-9400-3 RANGEMAN), the newest member to the MASTER of G Collection will be available starting November 2013.

Release Date: November 2013


I was very stoked on wearing this. When you wear this G-Shock it stands out and you feel great wearing it. This is made a man's watch. This is a very cool G-Shock.


I was excited to hear that the new GW-9400 Rangeman will have an Altimeter and Compass. But, even with the new triple sensor, it provides no new features. The altimeter only stores 40 records manually, which is useless. Skiers need to know the total vertical skied during the day, and the total number of runs. And altitude needs to bbe measured at least every 30 seconds, not just once every 2 minutes. So, the Rangeman is a big disappointment. When will Casio make a watch for skiers?
