G-SHOCK’s Slim Workout Watch Honors Its Original Iconic Design

Jun 16, 2021

For all of their added functionality, smartwatches are pretty polarizing devices in terms of their visual appeal. Granted, over time, they’ve become slimmer, sleeker, and generally cleaner in design. However, ultimately, there’s only so much you can do to remedy that futuristic sci-fi aesthetic.

If you’ve been put off by smartwatches in the past for such reasons, then you’ll be pleased to know that G-SHOCK’s latest wearable breaks from the trend. Dubbed the GBD-200-2, it makes for the thinnest model in the G-SQUAD line to date, with a square-shaped resin case that’s reminiscent of the OG DW5600. Unlike its predecessor, though, this one’s good for more than telling time. For instance, because of its Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone-supported GPS, the GBD-200-2 can record distance, speed, and pace with just the touch of a button. And to ensure that you stay on top of your daily activity levels, it will even track metrics such as calories burned and steps taken. As you’d expect from a G-SHOCK, it’s built for the long haul, offering a 2-year battery life in addition to both shock and 200m water resistance. No word yet on release, but you can learn more at the link below.
