Casio’s G-Shock series has just unveiled its G-Squad sports watch series, which adds sports related functions to the familiar G-Shock frame and Bluetooth interface for pairing with the G-Shock Connected app.

The four designs of the GB-800 series feature two digital display and two analog hand variants. All are equipped with health and fitness support functions include a 3-axis accelerometer that keeps track of step count, a Multi-Timer that lets you create up to 20 timer combinations of five timers each, memory for up to 200 lap records, and with the help of the phone app, a calorie-use counter.

While not as comprehensive as a full-feature heart rate monitor and GPS enabled sports watch, the G-Shock app could be a convenient alternative for leisure runners, as it makes it possible to maintain step count logs with five exercise intensity levels, calculate the calories you burn, specify a daily step target, create timer combinations and send them to the watch, and store stopwatch measurement data.

For a more comfortable and secure fit, the watches also features back wings on the inside of the band where it connects to the case, a new band ring shape that prevents sliding, and more tightly spaced band holes to allow better adjustment. Other features of the watch include app-based auto time setting correction and an Auto LED Light to facilitate workouts in areas where lighting is dim.

The digital faced GBD-800LU-1 and the GBD-800LU-9 will retail for S$149, while the analog GBA-800LU-1A and GBA-800LU-1A1 variants will retail for S$199 in Singapore.
