Casio G-Shock GBD-100 Watches

Casio sports watches go to the next level. Yes, this is not a complete set of features like the flagship GBD-H1000, but the GBD-100 has something to boast about [except for the price]. Not all runners need a heart rate monitor with its specific capabilities, in fact, someone will just need a regular pedometer, interval timer and Bluetooth for convenient visualization of activity results – the GBD-100 has all this. Pleased with the presence of the same digital display MIP – electronic panel “pixel” type with high contrast. In practice, this type of display contains more information [indicators, charts] and can display not only the data that has been pre-programmed for it [speech about notifications from a smartphone]. Yes, there are also notifications [incoming calls, SMS, e-mail, calendar, reminder] and this is very cool, in our opinion. The vibro function is also present.

These are the latest additions to the G-SQUAD lineup of sports watches from G-SHOCK, now with Bluetooth® capabilities that allow continuous connection with a smartphone.
These watches can link with the GPS of a smartphone for quicker calibration of distance measurements, enabling more accurate running distance measurements, even during use without a phone connection.
Distance measurements used in combination with the stopwatch let you keep track of your running pace, and also enable use of an Auto Lap feature that automatically keeps track of times over a specific distance.
Other standard features include a step tracker (pedometer), interval timers (up to 20 sets of five timers each), lap time measurement (up to 140 records for up to 100 runs), and calories burned measurement, all of which provide plenty of support for your daily training. Also, new phone apps are now available to help you configure watch settings more easily and manage your workouts. In addition to Life Log and Activity History apps, you can automatically create a training plan based on targets specified by you.
