Casing comes in the form of an elongated octagon reminiscent of the DW-5600 series, but with the addition of a double-layered metal bezel in silver and black with various markings corresponding to the watch’s numerous pushers. The dial itself is replaced by a monotone Memory in Pixel LCD display which provides higher resolutions, while the soft urethane sleeve and strap bring on additional toughness against the elements. Of course, as with all G-SHOCKs, functionality is core, and the G-Lide GBX100 is equipped with a whole roster of features — some of which utilize Bluetooth connectivity with your smartphone — including tidal information across 3,300 points in the world, a step tracker, a workout planner that can track speed, lap times, pace and pitch, and Moon data. All the other usual tech comes standard as well, including world times with 300 countries, stopwatch, count-down timers, and four alarms.
Available in black, white, and aquamarine, the G-SHOCK G-Lide GBX100 will retail for $160 USD and launch in the coming month.
Elsewhere in watches, Seiko is celebrating SEGA’s 60th anniversary with a pair of special edition chronographs.
