G-SHOCK has long provided feature-rich digital watches, but Japanese watchmakers have never fully adopted comprehensive smartwatch technology-like traditional Swiss watches like Tissot and TAG Heuer. But today, with the release of G-SHOCK G-SQUAD Pro, this situation has changed.
G-SHOCK G-SQUAD Pro runs Google’s Wear operating system, making it the company’s first full-featured smartwatch, and almost immediately the world’s strongest smartwatch with the most classic G-SHOCK shock resistance and 200m water resistance. The watch includes numerous sensors for GPS, compass bearing, altitude, and atmospheric pressure, as well as an optical sensor embedded in the titanium case for monitoring heart rate. The dual-layer display includes an always-on LCD layer to display the time, and a color LCD to perform more detailed tasks, such as reading maps. Designed for athletes, this watch has modes for tracking sports performance such as surfing, running, cycling, weightlifting, etc., and can be synchronized with the free G-SHOCK Move app on your phone. Since the watch is running Wear OS, you can also access thousands of apps on Google Play. G-SHOCK G-SQUAD Pro is expected to be released at the end of April, although the price details have not yet been finalized. Click here for more details.
