G-Shock GBD-200UU and GLX-5600RT: New summer colorways for running and surfing series

G-Shock is adding more colorways to the GBD-200 fitness series and the GLX-5600 surfing series.

G-Shock G-SQUAD GBD-200UU and G-LIDE GLX-5600

The GBD-200UU series features urban-themed colors with the black GBD-200UU-1 and white (or more of a dullish off-white) GBD-200UU-9 [sic]. These models have a very matte appearance that will match well with athletic wear and shoes. The GBD-200UU is an advanced G-SQUAD fitness model designed for runners with a high-contrast MIP LCD display, step counter, Bluetooth smartphone link, running training program, stopwatch, interval timers, and vibration.

The GLX-5600RT series features bright summer-themed colors and metallic faces with the orange GLX-5600RT-4 and yellow GLX-5600RT-9. The GLX-5600RT is a G-LIDE surfing model featuring a tide and moon graph and an approximate 7-year battery life. Other features include world time, 1/100-second stopwatch, 24-hour countdown timer, 3 multi-function alarms* with 1 snooze, flash (sound and EL light) alerts (for alarm, hourly time signal, timer, and stopwatch auto start), and EL backlight with adjustable afterglow.

In Japan, the GBD-200UU-1JF and GBD-200UU-9JF have a tax-included price of 22,000 yen and the GLX-5600RT-4JF and GLX-5600RT-9JF have a tax-included price of 13,750 yen. All four models are slated for a May release, with other regions expected to follow.

* The multi-function alarms on the GLX-5600 are like the one on the DW-5600 and include the following modes: daily, date (time at specific date), 1-month (time daily during the month set), monthly (time on specific numbered day every month).

Are you sure the grey one’s serial number finishes with 9? I would say 8, as 9 is usually yellow/gold.
to my memory it is:
1 – Black
2 – Blue
3 – Green
4 – Red/pink/orange
5 – Brown
6 – Purple
7 – White/beige
8 – Grey
9 – Yellow/gold

I hope they update the GBD-200 firmware to make the UI/UX more user friendly. I have never been a fan of the G-Shock watches (never liked the ugly look of the square model and the very vintage LCD display), but when they released this model (GBD-200) with gourgeous design and improved MIP negative display, I just fall in love! I hope they make improved version of this with solar and hearth rate monitor.
