6 August 2021, SINGAPORE – Casio today announced the release of the GBD-200, a new addition to the sports-driven G-SQUAD line in the G-SHOCK family of shock-resistant watches.


Inheriting the iconic square-shaped case design of the very first G-SHOCK, these compact new watches offer convenient functionality for workouts as well as for everyday use.

The GBD-200 features a new, smaller profile design for the case, which is significantly slimmer and narrower in comparison to its predecessor the GBD-100.


In order to make the watch look even slimmer, the case, bezel and other parts are carefully designed to appear flat when viewed from the side.

The watch band is made of soft urethane to provide outstanding ventilation and flexibility and fits snugly over the wrist.


Holes near the lugs that fasten the band to the case ensure breathability, helping to shed perspiration - giving the watch a comfortable, airy fit that is great for workouts and sports participation.


The GBD-200 also boasts outstanding functionality, with the ability to be paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth®, and to adjust distances captured by the watch's acceleration sensor using smartphone GPS.

This allows each user to measure distances with even higher degrees of accuracy, even when not connected to a smartphone.


The watch also measures running pace and comes with an auto lap feature that automatically keeps track of times over a set distance.

Best used with the G-SHOCK MOVE app, the watch offers great support for daily workouts, allowing users to check life logs with data on step counts and calories burned, activity logs and more - right on the convenience of your smartphone.
