Since 1983, G-SHOCK has made high-quality watches with “triple 10” resistance: the watches have a 10-year battery life, a water-resistance of 10-bar, and can survive a 10-meter fall. In the nearly 40 years since its inception, G-SHOCK continues to make watches that not only withstand the forces of nature, but also power your hardest workouts — in the gym and on the trail.
With dozens of time-tested models and hundreds of millions of watches sold, G-SHOCK is a proven and trusted brand, continually innovating to create timepieces for every specialty pursuit.
New for 2022 is the addition of the G-SHOCK MOVE GBD200 ($150) to the brand’s Burning Red Series. G-SHOCK designed this series of sports watches to keep you moving no matter your fitness goals — and motivated by both the watch’s function and vibrant red color.
G-SHOCK MOVE GBD200
Made in the iconic square form of the original G-SHOCK watches, the G-SHOCK MOVE GBD200 has an actual weight of only 58 grams (2 ounces), is only 50 millimeters wide and 15 millimeters thick, and has a flexible and breathable urethane band, making it easy to wear and slip beneath a running jacket.
While the GBD200 comes in five colorways, the flagship vibrant red colorway of the GBD200RD-4 makes it easily visible at home or in your gear bag — and a stylish addition to any post-run outfit.
Small but mighty, the GBD200 delivers all you need to power your workout or long runs on trails near to home. Gone are the days when watches could only tell time: the GBD200 has all the technology bells and whistles you could want in a fitness watch.
With Bluetooth capability and the free G-SHOCK MOVE App, you can sync your workouts directly to your phone and into third-party apps like Strava. The GBD200 is capable of measuring running distance, speed, pace, and calories burned with the help of your smartphone’s GPS, as well as your daily movements while not running, ensuring that you stay on track of your fitness goals.
Prominent side buttons make it easy for users to start and stop a timer, move between modes, and brighten up the screen. The high-contrast Memory In Pixel LCD display allows runners to customize what they’d like and the level of brightness on each screen, ensuring that you can read the display, day or night.
