G-SHOCK Just Unveiled Its Very-First Watch With An Onboard HR Monitor

G-SHOCK is well known for its influence within the world of durable wristwear, but after recently branching into the realm of marketable sports watches with the MOVE series, it seemed abnormal that the company’s initial lineup didn’t boast the same technologies that we’ve come to expect from other fitness-focused models. Now, the brand has remedied the situation with the GBDH1000-1A7 — its first athletic watch with a built-in heart rate monitor.

Calling upon a newly-implemented optical sensor for precise heart rate measurement, the GBDH1000-1A7 allows you to monitor your fitness in real-time, while also being able to reference important statistics about bearing, altitude/barometric pressure, and temperature. Thanks to an array of GPS components, fitness aficionados will be able to record their distance, speed, and pace as they head out for their daily exercise regimen, allowing the watch to calculate their VO2 max value — an indicator of cardio-pulmonary capacity — in an easy and intuitive way. The USB/solar-charged variant even lets you configure its settings via an HD MIP LCD display, helping you to manage your workouts. Of course, all of this arrives housed within the durable, ruggedized architecture of G-SHOCK’s renowned wristwear offerings. If you’re looking to take your workouts to the next level, head to the company’s website, where the GBDH1000-1A7 is available or $400.
