New G-SHOCK for efficient workouts complete with integrated step counter
Innovative functions combined with a stylish look

The new G-SQUAD series combines a stylish look with innovative technology. Featuring a three-axis acceleration sensor which measures movements three-dimensionally and displays them as acceleration, this watch can pair with the G-SHOCK Connected smartphone app to offer the wearer perfect support in tracking their fitness level. The first model of the new series is the G-SHOCK GBA-800, which will be available in six colourways.

The new GBA-800 with integrated accelerometer measures not just the daily step count but also walking and running speed. The watch connects with a smartphone via Bluetooth®, sending the data logged to the G-SHOCK Connected app for feedback on daily steps and calories burned. The results are also displayed on the watch face.

If the user has their smartphone on them while performing an activity, the G-SHOCK Connected app displays steps and calories graphically in an easy-to-read diagram. In addition to walking and running speed, steps are displayed in each of the five metabolic equivalents (MET) based on the algorithm specially developed by CASIO. This means users can track not only their steps, but also their location, the time of day and the MET level. It is also possible to create timed workouts for interval training, opening up a whole new range of possibilities for athletes to use G-SHOCK for health tracking and fitness.

The G-SQUAD timekeepers in plain-colour look feature both a digital display and analogue hands. In order to keep the watches to a compact size, an individually tailored module was developed which is still big enough to accommodate the Bluetooth® system and acceleration sensor. Four times a day the GBA-800 connects with time servers via a paired smartphone to guarantee the exact time everywhere in the world.

Step by step to your personal best with G-SHOCK!
