Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000V-1 Digital Watch

Well, this isn’t a deal but more of a PSA for Casio fans who have deep pockets. First announced at Baselworld 2019, the Casio G-Shock GMW-B5000V-1 will be launched in Singapore soon. It’s estimated to cost at least S$1,000 (or more); however, given its rugged vintage weathered looks, we are sure it will sell like hot cakes. Casio G-Shock fans may register their interests here. As a matter of interest, the most popular Casio G-Shock watches are the round face ones.

The ASUS ZenBook 13 laptop, in blue, features an 8th-gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and a discrete graphics chipset, i.e., NVIDIA GeForce MX150 2GB GDDR5 VRAM. Its 13.3-inch full HD display has razor-thin bezels but still manages to house a full HD webcam at its top bezel. It’s retailing at S$1,398 (U.P S$1,598) on Hachi.tech. Exact specifications aside, the ASUS Zenbook 13 is an ideal alternative to the more expensive and powerful ASUS Zenbook 14.
