G-Shock is releasing two new sporty colorways for the GBD-H1000 with translucent “skeleton” colors. The GBD-H1000-1A4JR has dark and smoky translucent bezel bumpers combined with orange accents, a copper IP stainless steel bezel, and a black band. The GBD-H1000-7A9JR has clear translucent bezel bumpers combined with lime green accents, a silver stainless steel bezel, and white bands.
The black and orange GBD-H1000-1A4JR matches the colors (unofficially) of Japan’s most popular baseball team, the Yomiura Giants, and the bright GBD-H1000-7A9JR has a style that matches colorful athletic wear.
These are the first new models released since the debut of the GBD-H1000 series that included four colorways. The GBD-H1000 is currently G-Shock’s most advanced smartwatch, featuring a high-contrast MIP LCD display and fitness features for runners such as an optical heart rate monitor, step tracker, VO2 max measurement, and automatic training plan creation. It is also equipped with GPS and has outdoor features such as solar-assisted power, pressure sensor (altimeter and barometer), compass, and thermometer. The GBD-H1000 has GPS timekeeping, smartphone messaging alerts via Bluetooth, and a vibration alert function.
The GBD-H1000-1A4JR and GBD-H1000-7A9JR are slated for an October 2020 release in Japan, with a list price of 50,000 JPY each (before tax). The GBD-H1000-1A4 and GBD-H1000-7A9 will also be released throughout Asia.
Update: G-Shock U.S. released the GBDH1000-1A4 and GBDH1000-7A9 with a list price of $399 each.
