G-Shock, the ultimate tough watch from the house of Casio, announces the launch of the G-Squad GBD-H1000 watch which is fully loaded with features making it the most sought-after smartwatch. Equipped with five-sensor functions, GPS functionality, vibration notification, solar and USB charging and Bluetooth connectivity, the new watch combines toughness for workouts and is an ideal timepiece for fitness enthusiasts. The much-awaited watch will be exclusively launched in India as a part of Amazon Prime day which is August 6, 2020.
The five-sensor functions include an optical sensor that can measure heart rate by detecting the blood flow under the skin, a triple sensor that measures altitude/barometric pressure, compass bearing, and temperature, and an acceleration sensor that measures step count and distance travelled. By analysing the measured data, the watch can display an indicator of cardiorespiratory capacity. The user can manage measurement data history such as calories burned and logged travel by connecting the watch with a dedicated app on a smartphone.
The exterior delivers a good fit, practicality and features a high-definition memory-in-pixel (MIP) LCD with high-contrast. A bezel configuration that is easy to operate even without looking at the buttons, large non-slip buttons, a curved back cover that carefully considers the back of the hand, and a soft urethane band, gives the new watch improved operability and fit. In addition to USB charging, the watch offers solar charging for daily use such as the vibrating notification function. This G-Shock is well equipped for everyday health monitoring and training.
The new tough watch comes as a great news for all the G-Shock lovers and fitness fanatics because of its high-end features, suitable for intense workouts, long distance runs and fitness trainings, compelling the athletes to grab one.
