The wait is finally over, it sure took some time but the first Casio G-Shock to run Wear OS is finally here. Say hello to the G-Squad Pro GSW-H1000. The latest G-Shock watch is built to withstand the elements and track your sports activities, with the iconic rugged design and up-to-date specs, and a full smartwatch OS.
What you get here is around a 1.2-inch dual-layer display with a monochrome always-on panel on top of the color LCD one. With G-Shock watches, you know they will deliver the best build quality, it comes with shock-resistant and with 20 bar water resistance so that you can go about your extreme activities. The buttons and portions of the top part of the casing are aluminum while the back is made from titanium.
With G-Squad Pro you also get heart rate tracking as well as blood oxygen saturation, sleep, and stress monitoring. You get onboard GPS, a compass, and a barometer as well as tracking for 15 activities and 24 indoor workout options.
For the Wear OS interface, you get several options to choose from the iconic G-Shock watch faces as well as Casio’s custom apps for sports-specific data like altitude measurement, tide graphs, and road gradients. You can also download any watch-compatible app from the Google Play store.
The battery life is rated to last about a day and a half if you’re more frequent with the color display or up to a month if you rely on the monochrome display and tracking sensors.
The G-Squad Pro comes in red, dark blue, and black color options. The price for the watch is set at $699 (51,232 INR). Casio hasn’t provided any actual availability details as of now.
