G-Shock has released its first ever Smartwatch, the GSWH1000 G-SQUAD PRO, powered by Wear OS by Google™. The GSWH1000 is the latest in tough smartwatch technology and features touchscreen, activity tracking, smartphone linking and Google Play app integration. This functionality sits on top of the shock resistance and 200m water resistance that the brand is known for, meaning the G-Squad Pro can still handle whatever you throw at it. The watch will be available in Australia via the G-Shock Australia website only from 9am Wednesday 9th June, with limited stock quantities.
The G-Squad features a monochrome always-on LCD for time display and a colour LCD for high-definition display of maps, sensor data and more. The three-tier display enables customization, with hundreds of different data display possibilities including the option of analog display.
The GSWH1000 has an optical sensor to measure heart rate, as well as a compass, altitude/air pressure sensor, accelerometer, gyrometer, GPS functionality and more. This powerful hardware profile enables the watch to capture the data on distance, speed and pace for training purposes.
With Wear OS by Google, the GSW-H1000 comes loaded with a variety of Google apps and services designed for the watch. Users can get help on the go from Google Assistant and track important activity metrics with Google Fit. They can also choose from thousands of apps available on Google Play and access important information at a glance, like messages and phone calls, notifications, agenda, weather forecast, and more.
The Casio original app built into the watch provides support for 15 activities and 24 indoor workout options. The watch also pairs with the G-SHOCK MOVE smartphone app, allowing various logs useful for training including activity history and analysis to progress reports and more.
The case back, made of titanium, ensures excellent corrosion resistance and has a titanium carbide finish to provide enhanced abrasion resistance.
