The MTG-B1000XBD and B1000XB are based on the MTG-B1000, which has a mid-sized case for enhanced wearability while delivering advanced functionality, including smartphone connectivity and solar-powered radio control. The new models feature a bezel made from carbon fiber, considered the “third material” after metal and plastics, for an evolution in design in keeping with the 20th anniversary of the MT-G series.
Carbon fiber is similar to plastic in terms of its light weight, yet comparable to or exceeding metal in durability, although its hardness makes it more difficult to process.
The red-accented MTG-B1000XBD comes with a layered composite band made with durable fine resin parts.
