Timekeeping has gone atomic thanks to Casio. Casio introduced Wave Ceptor watches in 2008 which feature Atomic timekeeping technology. Atomic timekeeping technology uses a multi-band time calibration signal receptor which has the ability to receive time-calibrates signals from transmissions stations around the world and those signals automatically synchronize the date and time and display them on the watch. The watch can receive data up to six times a day from the nearest station. Signals in the US are transmitted from Ft. Collins Colorado. The best signals are received in the middle of the night and the watch is automatically updated.
Casio has been on the cutting edge of electronic technology ever since Kashio Tadao formed Casio Computer Company LTD in Tokyo in 1946. Tadao and his brothers developed the first 10 key electronic calculators with unique display features in 1954.
In 1957, Uchida Yoko became Casio’s exclusive dealer, Yoko handled sales and Casio handled development and production. That agreement helped the company become a driving force in calculator technology. Through the years the company continued to expand their watch line. In 1989 Casio introduced a digital watch with weather prediction sensors. The watch had a barometer sensor that measured air pressure every three hours. When a bar on the right side of the watch went up that meant that the weather would improve, if it went down the weather would get nasty. The sensor could also indicate altitude and underwater depth. Those features made the watch an instant hit, so the company introduced a complete line of sensor watches.
In 1992 the company released a watch that was a blood-pressure monitor and in 1994 they introduced the Baby-G shock resistant watch for women. In 1998 Casio introduced the PC compatible watch and in 2000 the company introduced a MP3 player type watch. The solar powered radio-controlled watch made its debut in 2001 and in 2002 the ultimate G-SHOCK model became a hit. Then in 2008 Casio released the G-SHOCK RISEMAN, which was the first 6 multi-band radio controlled watch. Casio developed a touch movement feature than produced excellent reception in a slim design. The Company continues to develop new electronic technology that offers innovative features and useful functions. The new Atomic timekeeping technology is just another step in the expansion of timekeeping.
Wave Ceptor Radio Controlled watches have been called the most powerful tool for the wrist. The watch ensures accuracy to the second. Perfect timing regardless of location is available at the press of a button. Wave Ceptor watches feature world times, five different alarms and most of them are water resistant down to 100 meters. Each watch in the Wave Ceptor series has unique design features that fit different lifestyles. Wave Ceptor is just the beginning of a new era in time watching.
