Casio has announced its first Wear OS smartwatch in its long-running G-Shock lineup. Model number GSW-H1000 is a fitness-focused wearable designed for everything your life throws at you.
Casio has been making smartwatches using the Wear OS since 2016, but this is the first G-Shock variant. G-Shock watches have been around for a long time and are considered one of the tough and rugged watches in the market.
The GSW-H1000 features a 1.2-inch 360 x 360 dual-layer display that combines a monochrome always-on LCD display with a color LCD panel. Utility features include an optical heart rate sensor, GPS, a built-in compass, altitude sensor, accelerometer, and gyrometer.
Casio’s built-in software supports 15 activities and 24 indoor workout options. According to the company, a full charge takes around three hours which can last one and a half days if you’re using the color display. It can extend up to a month if you only use the watch for general timekeeping and utility purposes.
