Seiko Introduces The World’s First Gps Satellite Positioning Solar Power Watch

This Seiko brand new watch has an exclusive, patented, low-energy global satellite positioning receiver that can use global positioning signals from the global satellite positioning network to identify time zone, time and date data. Seiko Astron Watches: A refined watch with global time zones
    The days of groping for accurate time around the world are finally over. This Seiko brand new watch has an exclusive home-made patented low-energy global satellite positioning receiver that can use global positioning signals from the global satellite positioning network to identify time zone, time and date data. This watch recognizes 39 time zones around the world. This landmark work is the Seiko Astron watch. The new Seiko Astron watch will be released simultaneously in the world this fall, inheriting the spirit of the ancestor of the series-the world’s first quartz watch in 1969, and creating a new era of timing technology.
Get precise moments anytime, anywhere
    The Seiko Astron watch can automatically receive the time signal once a day, and can connect to at least 4 global positioning satellites orbiting the earth according to user requirements to accurately locate and identify the time zone and time. The hands can automatically adjust to the correct local time like a precise atomic clock. The new Seiko Astron watch is solar powered and does not require battery replacement. It also has a perpetual calendar function that makes the date and time as accurate as ever.
GPS coverage anywhere in the world
    A full range of watches, each detail reveals innovative ingenuity. Seiko Astron watches are not just watches, they are also a collection worthy of collection. In commemoration of the launch of this series, a limited edition of 2,500 watches was specially designed and manufactured, featuring a high-strength titanium case and ceramic bezel. The concave design on both sides of the case is more lightweight and durable. The high-strength titanium case is as sturdy as stainless steel, yet only 60% of its weight. An extended silicone strap is also available, which is 4 times tougher than the previous strap.
    This series also launched 3 high-strength titanium models and two stainless steel models. All watches have the same functions and high-spec materials, including dual time zone sub-dial, flight mode display and sapphire crystal (super clear coating). The dial design is elegant and easy to read, but contains a wealth of time information. In addition to the traditional date and dual time zone display, as long as the corresponding button is pressed, the second hand and the indicator at 10 o’clock will display the global satellite signal status. The user can immediately know if a global satellite positioning signal is received, how many positioning satellites are received, and whether the daylight saving time function is activated. The limited edition model has a concave side case, which is lighter, and the high-strength titanium alloy material enhances the case strength. Exclusive secrets of power management
    After several years of hard research and innovation, Seiko has obtained hundreds of patented applications and successfully combined solar technology with global positioning system. Only through Seiko’s advanced energy-saving technology can a miniature global positioning receiver be created, which can receive signals from more than 4 satellites with little power. Only Seiko’s superior micro engineering technology is able to embed this technological device in a delicate watch with a diameter of only 47 mm and a weight of 135 grams (high-strength titanium case and strap). Only Seiko’s cutting-edge integrated circuit expertise can divide the world into 1 million ‘squares’ representing different time zones.
    Seiko Astron watches are smart watches, but they bring a simple and pleasant experience. When getting off the plane, you can automatically adjust the time zone by pressing the button. The time for the watch to automatically correct is about 6 seconds (only 1 second for 1 million years!), And it can be adjusted to the local position in 30 seconds, regardless of whether you are stationary or moving. Therefore, as long as you can see the sky, you can know the time. With a single tap, you can turn daylight saving time or summer time on or off, and the date is always accurate. Seiko Astron’s perpetual calendar is accurate to February 2100 without adjustment. This practical watch uses Seiko’s exclusive solar power technology without worrying about maintenance. The watch draws kinetic energy from all kinds of light without having to replace the battery.
    Managing time has never been easier. No matter where you travel around the world, the new Seiko Astron watch will keep pace with the times, and grasp the precise moment with ease.
    Seiko Astron Global Positioning Solar Watches are made of high-strength titanium and stainless steel. The front and back sides of the sapphire crystal are coated with ultra-clear coatings developed by our company, which can prevent 99% of reflections. Even in bright light, users can easily read the time. Seiko Astron Global Positioning Solar Watch Specifications
