GMW-B5000G-1 & GMW-B5000G-2: Black, Blue IP & Resin Band

G-Shock GMW-B5000G-2 Blue IP Resin Band

Casio is adding two more resin-band models to the G-Shock GMW-B5000 stainless steel square family. The GMW-B5000G-1 has a black IP bezel with an STN LCD display and the GMW-B5000G-2 has a blue IP bezel with a reverse STN LCD display. Both models also have IP-treated black buckles, black buttons, and band keepers (of their respective color) along with a black resin band which is made of soft urethane. These models also have a DLC-coated screw-lock case back.

Notable features include Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio wave timekeeping, and Bluetooth mobile link. Through the G-Shock Connected smartphone app, the Bluetooth connection provides easy watch setting, automatic time adjustment, a time and place log, reminder alerts, a battery level indicator, and a phone finder function.

With the resin band, these watches have a lighter weight of 96 grams compared to the GMW-B500D-1 (167 grams) and other IP-treated models with a stainless steel band.

The GMW-B5000G-1JF and GMW-B5000G-2JF will be released in April 2019 in Japan with a list price of ¥56,000 JPY each. The previously released GMW-B5000-1 also offers a (silver) stainless steel bezel with a resin band.
