All Casio G-Shock Watches With Compass Sensor

Toughest G-Shock G-9300 Mudman with Mud ResistanceA compass is an essential tool for outdoor activities like hiking, hunting, kayaking, and boating. It can also be very useful if you lose your bearings in an unfamiliar city or environment.

If you are very active in the outdoors, and you don’t want to worry about protecting your watch from the elements, then a G-Shock is the best choice. A G-Shock watch has extreme shock resistance, a thick protective bezel with a recessed display to prevent scratches, and 200 meter water-resistance for worry-free operation in any conditions.

If your activities are highly dependent on a compass then be sure to carry a backup magnetic compass for emergencies. You should not rely solely on an electronic device if your life is at stake.

If you plan on using the G-Shock compass sensor on a regular basis, you should consider getting a Tough Solar model, as the battery-powered models only have an estimated battery life of around two years, and using the compass sensor a lot will drain the battery. Tough Solar G-Shock watches have a rechargeable battery that is recharged by a solar panel on the face of the watch, so you do not have to worry about running the battery down as much as you would a normal battery. If always having the most accurate time is a priority, then choose a model with Multi-Band 6, as this feature automatically syncs the time by radio wave reception from six transmitters around the world (assuming you are in an area within range of the radio signals).

G-Shock watches with a Twin Sensor include a compass and thermometer sensor. Watches with the Triple Sensor also include a pressure sensor to measure altitude (altimeter) and atmospheric pressure (barometer). A Triple Sensor G-Shock is also known as an “ABC watch.” “Quad Sensor” can mean several things, depending on the model. Here is a list of the G-Shock watches with a compass sensor, in order of ascending price.
