G-SHOCK’s GBD-200 series is leaning into its passion for sports and technology with its latest G-SQUAD (G-SHOCK MOVE) line of watches. The all-new G-SQUAD (G-SHOCK MOVE) series features a lineup of square-faced timepieces that calibrate themselves to align with your personal workouts. The first G-SQUAD (G-SHOCK MOVE) model with a square-shaped case, the iconic octagonal bezel is inspired by the original G-Shock 5000 series, coming along in three different models including the GBD-200-1 (black), GBD-200-2 (blue) and GBD-200-9 (yellow or fluorescent lime).
Coming along in black, blue and yellow colors, the G-SHOCK GBD-200-9 hero stands out amongst the crowd due to its bright and popping fluorescent lime hue. The GBD-200 models as a whole feature a smaller profile design for the case compared to its predecessor, sitting at about 2.0mm slimmer, 8.8mm shorter, and 3.4mm more narrow. The soft urethane band has holes near the lugs and wide buckle holes for ventilation, and curved resin wings under the watch case for a more snug fit. The GBD-200 also operates entirely performance-based, doubling as a smaller fitness watch with its Bluetooth smartphone link and an accelerometer for step counting. The accuracy of the step counter can be improved by using it when connected to a GPS-equipped smartphone, and it will calibrate accordingly for future offline sessions, while the light button can be found positioned on the case front for handy access to ensure easy reads.
The display on the watch shows your calories burned, a step tracker, an interval timer, and a lap timer to keep your daily exercise fully on track. You may also use the bluetooth app to check life logs and activity history right from your watch. G-SQUAD (G-SHOCK MOVE)’s signature features— shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, MIP LCD display, resin band and case/bezel material, mineral glass, 38-city world time, stopwatch and a countdown timer all remain, while new and enhanced features pop up like the training functions on each watch, including measurement for distance, speed, and pace, auto and manual lap measurement over a set distance, target alarm setting (for time and calories burned), and display customization. The training log data even stores up to 100 runs with up to 140 laps per run, including elapsed time, distance, pace, and calories burned.
