G-Shock’s G-SQUAD fitness line gets a functional style update with the GBA-800LU and GBD-800LU series. Three of these watches have a reflective material on the band, providing increased visibility to others and better safety at night. The yellow material on the GBA-800LU-1A1 band is phosphorescent (but not reflective). These watches are equipped with Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, a step counter, stopwatch with target time notifications, and custom interval timers. They are also water-resistant to 200 meters. The all-digital GBD-800LU-1 has a standard (non-reversed) LCD display, which is recommended for those who are concerned about legibility, particularly in lower light settings.
In Japan, the GBA-800LU-1AJF and GBA-800LU-1A1JF have a list price of 17,500 JPY each, and the GBD-800LU-1JF and GBD-800LU-9JF have a list price of 14,500 JPY each. All four models will also be released in Asia.
Update: The GBA800LU-1A1 (MSRP $130) and GBD800LU-1 (MSRP $110) were also released in the U.S.
