Casio to Release EDIFICE with Large LCD That Graphs Lap Times

Advanced Motorsports Watch Records Down to 1/1000th of a Second


ECB-800DB-1A

Basel, March 21, 2018 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of a new addition to its EDIFICE line of high-performance sports chronographs that combine dynamic design with advanced technology. The ECB-800 is an advanced analogue watch with extensive lap time features and a large LCD to support motorsports, and it will be available in three models.

The new ECB-800 features a large, full-dot LCD to enable the graphing of lap times. The graph provides a direct indication of lap time trends and fast confirmation of the quickest lap time.

The watch offers extensive lap time features including the ability to set a target lap time. This triggers a 30-second countdown to the target time on each lap, indicated by the second hand. The countdown is useful for predicting the time when high-speed race cars return and gauging the gap to the target lap time. Lap times are recorded down to 1/1000th of a second, with a 200-lap memory. The watch delivers utility for motorsports including an inset dial that displays the average speed, making it valuable not only for racing teams operating on precise timing, but also for spectators who want more realistic insights into races.

The ECB-800 is equipped with the Connected Engine module, which pairs with a smartphone to receive accurate time data anywhere in the world. This module enables data the watch records to be transferred to a smartphone app, allowing viewing and storing of detailed data. The app provides operating instructions for the watch and also allows the user to select course lengths from actual circuits when using lap time features, making it easy to enjoy the advanced functionality of the watch.
