G-SHOCK Finally Has A Full-Fledged Rugged Smartwatch In The G-SQUAD Pro

G-SHOCK has long offered feature-packed digital watches, but the Japanese watchmaker has never fully embraced full-on smartwatch technology — even as more traditional Swiss peers like Tissot and TAG Heuer have. But that’s changing today with the announcement of the G-SHOCK G-SQUAD Pro.

The G-SHOCK G-SQUAD Pro runs Google’s Wear OS, making this the company’s first full-featured smartwatch and pretty much immediately taking the throne as the world’s toughest smartwatch with typical G-SHOCK shock protection and 200m water resistance. The watch includes numerous sensors for GPS, compass bearing, altitude, and barometric pressure, as well as optical sensors embedded in the titanium caseback for heart rate monitoring. The Dual-layer Display contains an always-on LCD layer for telling the time, as well as a color LCD for more detailed tasks like map reading. Designed with athletes in mind, the watch has modes for tracking performance in sports like surfing, running, cycling, weight lifting, and more, and can be synced to the free G-SHOCK Move app on your phone. And since the watch runs Wear OS, you also get access to thousands of apps on Google Play. The G-SHOCK G-SQUAD Pro is expected to be released around the end of April, though pricing details have not yet been finalized.
