Spanish fan blog Zona Casio reported that the new G-Shock GBD-100 and GBD-H1000 will be joining the G-SQUAD fitness line possibly in spring or summer 2020. This appears to be confirmed by FCC registration information found on various sites.
Zona Casio reported that in addition to both models being equipped with Bluetooth, the GBD-H1000 will have a heart rate monitor and a barometer (or perhaps they meant a pedometer). They also said that the GBD-H1000 possibly has Tough Solar power, while the GBD-100 probably does not. The displays of both models appear to be a dot-matrix type like the GPR-B1000 Rangeman, and the bezels resemble that model as well.
Some things we noticed about the early design pictures is that there appears to be a dedicated area for the time display, and there doesn’t seem to be much space between the display and the bezel, leaving us wondering if there is space for any solar panels.
None of this is official yet, and we will post new information here as it becomes available.
