A few months ago, Casio unveiled new models of analog watches inspired by its classic design. This month, another model hit the manufacturer’s catalog ie. the G-SHOCK GBA900 is a cost-effective hybrid smartwatch that is detachable among competitors.
Unlike the GSW-H1000model, this wearable does not have the wearOS system, it is however possible to connect to via Bluetooth and the user’s smartphone via the G-SHOCK Move app, available for Android and iOS.
With impact and water resistance (up to 200 meters deep), the watch can automatically measure the time a certain distance is traveled by the user through the GPS system, in addition to recognizing daily training and time intervals and turns to enhance the experience in racing modalities.
In addition, the G-SHOCK GBA900 has features that facilitate and enhance its use, such as the ability to program up to five alarms, integrated power-saving mode, support for different time zones with two simultaneous hands and automatic calendar.
The bracelets have holes that allow air circulation to prevent moisture on the skin. The watch is made of resin and has mineral glass on its panel, giving scratch resistance and greater durability of the material, resulting in a device of only 61 grams.
The traditional CR2025 battery offers up to two years of battery life until it requires replacement. To save its life, the smartwatch is equipped with super illuminator, dual dynamic LED technology that illuminates the panel in outdoor environments, plus Bluetooth SMART technology for low-power data exchange with your smartphone.
Hybrid smartwatches have been gaining prominence in the wearables market due to their design inspired by traditional watches, without giving up advanced features that fitness bracelets currently offer.
Already available in some United States and some European countries, such as Italy, the hybrid smartwatch has been launched with a price of US$ 130 and is expected to reach other countries soon. Pre-sale began on May 13, with official retail sales being made available from May 19.
