Discover the new G-Shock Burning Red hybrid watches

One of our favorite things about Casio’s G-Shock line of watches is the breadth of choice when it comes to colors and styles. We’ve reviewed the simple black version of the GBD-200 Bluetooth fitness watch, but if that’s not your thing, take a look at the new Burning Red series, which paints the hybrid smartwatches GDB-200 and GBA-900 strikingly. Red color.

The square red GBD-200RD-4 case is attached to a red urethane band, while the bezel around the MIPS LCD screen is black, as is the G-Shock logo. For a G-Shock it’s modestly sized at 45mm wide and 15mm deep, making it suitable for more wrists. It is also suitable for all-day wear, as it is very light and comfortable. The Bluetooth feature connects to the G-Shock Move app on your phone, and despite this the watch doesn’t need regular charging as it relies on its own internal battery, which should last around two years before it needs to be changed.

Ideally suited for runners, the GBD-200’s connected features include a training mode that displays distance, pace and calories burned, as well as interval and lap data, fitness goal tracking and an indicator of intensity. There’s a step counter for everyday use, and the watch also shows notifications from your phone. All the expected ruggedness of G-Shock is built in, with shock resistance and water resistance up to 200 meters.

If the design of the GBD-200 doesn’t suit you, maybe the GBA-900 is a better choice? Again, the urethane case and strap are red, and the same black and red color mix is ​​incorporated into the analog-digital dial, but the case is larger at 49mm wide and a bit deeper. 17mm. It has the same connected features as the GBD-200, the same battery life and the same degree of toughness.

Pricing is reasonable for both, with the GBD-200 costing $130 and the GBA-900 $150, making it a great alternative to the recently announced Garmin Vivomove Sport, which has a similar hybrid design, but more tracking capability. of physical condition. The two new Burning Red G-Shock hybrid watches will be available in January through G-Shock’s online store and retail stores.
