Apart from the use of the new carbon fiber-reinforced case, a major difference from the previous generation G-STEEL GST-B100 is that the GST-B200 has an analog-digital display instead of a fully analog one. Features include Tough Solar power (based on seeing the battery level indicator on the display) and Bluetooth mobile link. From the looks of it, the GST-B200 will be smaller and lighter than the GST-B100. As with the resin-based GA-2000, the use of the Carbon Core Guard case allows the GST-B200 to have a sleeker and more streamlined look than previous G-STEEL models.
Update: According to Gshock.com, the overall diameter has been decreased by 2.6 mm compared to previous G-STEEL models while the dial has been increased by 2.8 mm. Also, the sub-display is an STN LCD and the LED is the Super Illuminator.
The G-STEEL GST-B200 will be released in May 2019. The debut models include the GST-B200-1AJF (MSRP ¥48,600 JPY), GST-B200B-1AJF (MSRP ¥54,000 JPY), and GST-B200D-1AJF (MSRP ¥54,000 JPY).
