Casio G-Shock has launched an all-new model to the fitness-oriented G-SQUAD lineup with the addition of the GBD-800.


The G-Shock GBD-800 is a digital-display model with a mid-size exterior case and dimensions as the original analogue-digital G-SQUAD GBA-800. The watch features a Step Tracker and Bluetooth Mobile Link features.


These new models feature multi-segment digital displays to improve readability and operation while engaged in sports. The digital display is divided into upper, middle, and lower sections, and there is a digital dial in the upper right. Each display area shows different measurement, timekeeping, and other information, which provides useful data about your daily activities.

These models come in a selection of fun sporty colours that are often used for sportswear, running shoes, and other sporting goods. A metal* front button and vapour deposition face add accent colours for striking designs.

Function-wise, the watch links with the G-SHOCK Connected phone app to provide access to a number of functions to support workouts.

Daily health and fitness support functions include a 3-axis accelerometer that keeps track of your step count, a programmable that lets you create up to 20 timer combinations of five timers each, memory for up to 200 lap records, and more.


The app also makes it possible to maintain step count logs with five exercise intensity levels, calculate the calories you burn, specify a daily step target, create timer combinations and send them to the watch, store stopwatch measurement data, view data, and more.

These features help plan and record workouts, making them more effective and enjoyable. Other features include app-based auto time setting correction and other features for more efficient timekeeping, and an Auto LED Light (super illuminator) to facilitate workouts in areas where lighting is dim.

The watch will be available from all major watch retailers. For enquiries please contact James Ralph (Pty) LTD on 011 314 8888.
