The fifth addition to G-Shock's Gravitymaster family adds premium features to the pilot-tailored tactical wristwatch.
Like the GWRB1000-1A1 released last year, the GRB200 boasts a "Carbon Core Guard" construction, with a three-layer carbon fiber bezel and a resin case reinforced with more carbon fiber.
The new model also features a redesigned control interface with large buttons set at different angles and shapes that are arranged like a fighter jet control stick, making them easier for gloved hands to operate.
Nearly every new G-Shock is equipped with Bluetooth capability to connect with the rugged brand's G-Shock Connected app, and the latest Gravitymaster is no exception. A Mission Log function records altitude points using GPS points from a smartphone, and a Calorie Consumption Display factors in step counts and altitude. The watch acts as a both a phone finder and a backtracking device by pointing to the location with the second hand and showing the distance on an LCD display.
