On April 1, 2021, Casio announced the release of Google’s Wear OS-based G-Shock smartwatch. The GSW-H1000 is the latest addition to the sporty G-SQUAD shockproof range.

The new smartwatch has an upgraded shockproof system and is water resistant to 200 meters. It’s also the first device from the company to run Google’s Wear OS platform. The G-Shock line has a sporty purpose: it is great not only for running, training, cycling, swimming, but also for more extreme activities such as surfing or snowboarding.

The new smartwatch is an indispensable companion for users who travel a lot. The device has a heart rate sensor, compass, altitude sensor, hygrometer, accelerometer and GPS navigation. All these tools allow you to collect information about distance, speed and pace of movement, so that a person can control his route.

In addition, the Wear OS platform provides access to notifications and numerous applications. All this data is on the multi-information display, which the user can customize in accordance with their goals. The manufacturer’s website states that Wear OS works with smartphones running the latest versions of Android and iOS. Supported features may vary by platform and country.

The new device has an original dial: a double-layer display provides excellent visibility. In addition, the user will be able to independently choose the background. It is known that the battery life of the color mode is one and a half days. If you use a monochrome display, then it can function for about a month.

In addition to black, these G-Shocks will be available in red and blue. The device weighs 104 grams. New smartwatches start at $ 700. The gadget will enter the American market in May 2021.
