Casio Introduces New Wristwatch-type Speed Meter for Runners

World’s smallest and lightest GPS to display real-time run data

 

                        

Hong Kong August 21, 2006 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., Japan and Javy’s international Ltd. has announced the release of the GPR-100 — a small, light weight, wrist-worn device that uses global positioning satellite (GPS) technology to display real-time data on distance, speed, and pace. The GPR-100, a new model in the CASIO SPORT® series, will be available at retail in October, 2006

Runners who break records in long-distance races are able to adjust their speed at just the right time while maintaining their own pace. Not surprisingly, more and more runners are relying on devices that measure run data like distance, speed and pace using GPS technology.

The popularity of GPS devices inspired Casio to design the world's smallest and lightest GPS device (63.1 x 49.5 x 17.1 mm), at about 64g. The new GPR-100 also inherits the finest tradition in GPS devices — Casio introduced the world’s first wristwatch-type GPS back in 1999 and has since taken on the challenge of designing devices that use GPS technology. The GPR-100 is the result of Casio’s ongoing development efforts, boasting an ultracompact GPS receiving antenna (19mm in length), a compact, high-performance GPS module (12mm x 11mm), and embedded wafer level package (EWLP) technology.* The GPR-100 applies EWLP technology in both its integrated circuit (IC) for timekeeping and its power supply circuit.

With a completely natural feel on the wrist, the GPR-100 displays distance, speed, and pace data in real time on the run. Never before has so much great technology been packed into such a comfortable wrist-worn device.

When used for long-distance training, the GPR-100 gives runners a sense of their current pace, an essential when it comes to setting new records. The device also reduces the monotony of training by enabling runners to enjoy different courses while still accurately measuring their distance. It also displays the difference between the runner’s preset time/distance goal and up-to-the-moment progress measured by GPS. This gives runners more complete control over their pace. In addition, data on up to 50 runs can be recorded, along with data on up to 100 laps per run, enabling runners and coaches to analyze performance after the training session. The device also displays the exact time anywhere in the world, thanks to its automatic time adjustment using satellite data.

* Embedded wafer level package (EWLP) technology
This technology enables increased functionality and a reduction in the overall size, thickness, and weight of electronic devices by embedding wafer level packages (WLP) into system boards. WLP is an LSI package that enables copper rewiring, the formation of electrode terminals, and resin encapsulation, all at the wafer level.
