Casio is releasing a new analog-digital G-Shock G-STEEL series that has the same look and features as the GST-S100 and GST-W100 series but in a smaller mid-size form factor that is about 90% the size of the original G-STEEL. The G-STEEL GST-W300, GST-W310, and GST-S310 have a smaller size of 55.9 x 49.3 x 15.3 mm compared to the original G-STEEL size of 59.1 x 52.4 x 16.1. These models will appeal to those with small wrists or those who prefer a more formal-looking analog G-Shock that isn’t the usual extra-large size. The GST-W300 and GST-W310 models with Tough Solar and Multi-Band 6 automatic time adjustment are likely to be released in Japan and Asia only, but Casio has also announced the Tough Solar-equipped silver GSTS310D-1A with stainless steel band for a U.S. release.

Update: The GST-W300-1AJF, GST-W300BD-1AJF, GST-W300G-1A2JF, GST-W300G-1A9JF, and GST-W310D-1AJF are June 2017 releases in Japan.

Update 2: The GST-S300-1A, GST-S300BD-1A, GST-S300G-1A2, GST-S300G-1A9, GST-S310D-1A are June 2017 releases for the rest of Asia. These watches have Tough Solar power but not Multi-Bannd 6 timekeeping like the Japanese versions. This raises the possibility that more of these mid-size G-STEEL watches may be released in America in addition to the GSTS310D-1A.

Update 3: Along with the stainless steel-banded GSTS310D-1A (list price $350 USD), Casio America is also releasing the blue GSTS300G-1A2 and gold GSTS300G-1A9 with a list price of $280 USD each. These three models are scheduled for a July 2017 release in the U.S.

The G-STEEL line is known for its classy analog-digital design, stainless steel body, and a dual-layer bezel for extra protection. With its mature look, shock resistance, and 200-meter water resistance, The G-Shock G-STEEL line is suitable for both outdoor activities and more formal environments like the office and social functions. With the Tough Solar power system that uses a rechargeable battery, the G-STEEL GST-S310 and GST-W300 are maintenance-free watches that can be worn for all occasions. Other features include neo-brite luminous hands, world time (48 cities + UTC), 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timer, 5 daily alarms, battery level indicator, and full auto double LED light with afterglow.
