|[セイコーアストロン] new development technologies and design concepts
History of the Seiko watch was with the pursuit of accurate clock. From mechanical to quartz and aiming at a clock accurate anywhere in the world as a next generation clock appeared to automatically correct the time radio controlled clock in the Seiko began with Seiko Epson Corporation responsible for developing a new challenge. And unlike conventional spent about 10 years from conception, standard radio wave reception area with only time radio controlled clock, corresponding to 39 world time zone clock was born.
■ core technology that provides a clock accurate anywhere in the world
[Newly-developed ultra low power GPS module:
In comparison with standard radio wave （ LF ） received from 1000 times 10000 times, in comparison with a standard watch is necessary to receive the signal from the always show accurate time, and see current location watch for over 2万 km orbit four or more GPS satellites, without receiving the time radio controlled clock to a huge power is about 200 times. Regularly such as for mobile phones to be on watch at the same time in the beauty of practicality and appearance, must be powered by large batteries charged from the current consumption to meet the product was extremely difficult. Clues were reducing the most energy-intensive satellite tracking reception hours. Watch GPS module processing efficiently, without any excessive tracking for satellite time correction and received at least 6 seconds, reception conditions are poor and developed the GPS module of versatility when receiving current consumption becomes about one-fifth of dramatic power savings realized.
[Ring-type high sensitivity antenna realized with new ideas]
[セイコーアストロン] is the スタンダードウオッチ who the active stage Earth. Aimed at the beginning to wear in the business scene, wearing comfort-oriented metal case styling. Became a challenge here was the antenna. Widely used in GPS chip antenna, the thickness of patch antenna respectively, and problem of the lack of receiver sensitivity in a metal case, the size and antenna design, and location of became required with totally new ideas to watch onboard. Is a high-sensitivity antenna of ring type to be skirmishing thus ended the round watch case. Succeeded by employing ceramics material would be refined more scratches on the margin of ） bezel part brilliance, while in the radio receiver compared to metallic materials favorable conditions, to place the antenna underneath the dial ring, maximize the sensitivity of the antenna.
[New power supply system to ensure energy supply and low power
In compact lithium-ion batteries for the large amount of power stored light, uses many small information devices, such as mobile phones, but charge and discharge character and too fragile to prevent early deterioration of the battery, to protect battery IC is required. [セイコーアストロン] has developed a new IC adopts new lithium-ion battery clock for size small size, even for mobile phones compared to driving at 10% power.
■ Smart Sensor solar light detection and receive memory by an efficient automatic time correction
Function energy battery and reception so far to determine an efficient automatic time correction, smart sensor is equipped. When it detects a strong light, such as sunlight, principle 1, once the automatic time correction. Time time difficult to hit the light due to short time hidden in clothing, such as winter or daylight time area, weather was followed by the last successful forced time correction (or time zone fix), and remembered as the conditions are better received when the automatic time receive at that time. If you have enough energy in receiving every day will do, but low energy and long interval automatic time correction. Also, not auto time correction at low charge, or airplane mode (receipt off function) is set.
■ experience the link between cosmic Kansei design
Is a product with an emotional value feel attached to watch real goods and at the same time, users long to find. ＜ セイコーアストロン ＞ development, should be technology as well as convenience and appeal to emotion and thought. To represent the 'invisible' features a GPS satellite tracking [セイコーアストロン] is received at turn, second hand and allow far above regarding the number of satellites, one captured, and two shows in real time GPS satellite link to a users experience visually. Also, dial is portraying the deep space, symbolizing the light to emphasize the three-dimensional multilayered and spread in radial dial ring on the index, falling from space and signals art.
