Utilizing the new Carbon Core Guard structure like the GWR-B1000 Gravitymaster, the analog-digital G-Shock GA-2000 series offers a new urban outdoor style with a sleeker look than the usual G-Shock and does it at an affordable price point.
Notable features include a carbon fiber-reinforced case, guardless buttons, front light button, a double case back structure (with a fine resin glass fiber outer case back), and multi-color resin bands. The Carbon Core Guard gives the GA-2000 a very light weight at 64 grams which is lighter than the GA-100. The display has 3D index markers with high-contrast analog hands, LCD subdisplays, and a menu subdial. The LCD subdisplays are backlit by an LED light, offering better nighttime viewing for the LCD displays compared to the GA-1XX models.
Another unique feature of the GA-2000 is that unlike other G-Shocks the bands can lay completely flat with the case and are easily removable using a slide lever without special tools. Casio is reportedly planning to sell several bands separately including a Cordura fabric band, resin band, and Velcro band.
The GA-2000 measures 51.2 x 48.7 x 14.1 millimeters which is smaller and thinner than the GA-100 (55 x 51.2 x 16.9 mm). Other features include shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance, world time, 1/100 second stopwatch (24 hour total with split), countdown timer (24 hours), 5 alarms, hourly time signal, dual Super Illuminator LED lights, and estimated 3-year battery life.
Despite the model number and the shared technology with the GWR-B1000, the GA-2000 does not appear to be a Gravitymaster model like the GA-1000.
The GA-2000 series is a March 2019 release in Japan and is priced at ¥16,000 JPY for the blue and black GA-2000-1A2JF or yellow and black GA-2000-1A9JF and ¥20,000 JPY for the red and black GA-2000E-4JR which also includes a swappable black resin band and khaki green cloth band. The GA-2000-1A2, GA-2000-1A9, and GA-2000E-4 will also be released in other Asian countries.
Update: Casio America also announced the GA2000-1A2, GA2000-1A9, and GA2000E-4. The GA2000E-4 is advertised as a limited edition and will include the black resin and green cloth bands in addition to the red resin band.

On the G-SHOCK GA-2000-2ADR BLUE or the red above: are the hand illuminated and will they glow in the dark?
The blue-banded GA-2000-2A and yellow-banded GA-2000-1A9 do not have luminous, glow-in-the-dark hands (since they have “skeleton hands” that you can see through) but the red-banded GA-2000E-4 does (and it also includes a black resin strap and green cloth strap). You can see the lume in this video: https://youtu.be/3ag2LiA-mDk?t=463
If you’re talking about the Neon Illuminator, no these models do not have that but they do have dual LED (Super Illuminator) lights.
When will the replacement bands/straps be sold?
They are going on sale in June 2019 in Japan, probably June for the rest of Asia too. Hopefully in July for U.S. and Europe. 24-mm quick release straps from other brands will also work. https://www.g-central.com/quick-release-replacement-bands-for-g-shock-ga-2000/
