G-SHOCKs with MIP DISPLAY | All Model List | 2024 Updates

Added GPR-H1000 (January 2024 new release), DW-H5600 (May 2023 new release), GBD-H2000 (March 2023 new release). To be continued…

This listing is curated by me, Alex, the casiofanmag devoted reader and contributor (and fan of CASIO watches since 2009). I monitor all CASIO news worldwide daily and update all listings on this site if needed. If you find something outdated, please push me here in the comments section or via my email.

“Memory In Pixel” (MIP) is a type of display technology that is commonly used in the watch industry. MIP displays are popular due to their low-power consumption and reflective display technology, which is similar to electronic paper (e-ink) displays.

Since the year 2020, Casio has been making extensive use of MIP (Memory In Pixel) displays in their watches. The GPR-B1000 was the first Casio MIP watch to be introduced back in 2018. It appears that Casio took some time to carefully consider how to best utilize this technology, resulting in an impressive implementation that we can now see.

New features in GPR-H1000 *in comparison with previous series
The most advanced RANGEMAN ever existed (by 2024)
The first RANGEMAN with in-built GPS & in-built Heart Rate Sensor
The first RANGEMAN with BIO plastic Case, Bezel & Band
The first RANGEMAN with six sensors + GPS (optical heart rate sensor, acceleration sensor, gyro sensor, magnetic/pressure/temperature sensor)
The first RANGEMAN with Multi-Sports Modes (Trekking, Running, Bike, Swimming, Gym workout)
What we like in GPR-H1000 *by casiofanmag editors with 10+ years of experience writing about CASIO watches
Amazing G-SHOCK Look in a Tough Case with Multi-Sports Features (differs significantly from Polar, Garmin, and alike)
The most advanced Survival Kit to be used in a G-SHOCK
Excellent readability (very distinct numbers even in the shadow)
In-built Heart Rate Sensor (makes the watch more useful for sports activities, cardio load status monitoring, and calories consumption)
In-built GPS (used for distance, speed, pace, and other similar measurements)
It can be used for running, swimming, and similar sports (it has dedicated modes for different sports)
Solar-assisted charging (suitable for the timekeeping mode; you shouldn’t worry about battery replacement while using it as a traditional watch)
Interval Timer (you can set different intervals, repeat them, and use them for any activity). Good for functional workouts
Step Count Measurement (via energy-efficient 3-axis acceleration sensor). You can monitor your daily/weekly/monthly/6-month activity status by changing the screens in the watch. Step reminder is also useful
Moon data (moon age of the specific data, moon phase)
Tide Graph (shows the ebb and flow of the tide)
Sunrise sunset time display (good for planning your walking activities)
Vibrator feature for notifications
Notification function (incoming calls, incoming e-mails, new social media posts, calendar notifications, reminders)
Blood Oxygen Level Measurement (Covid times require such a function)
Compass, Altimeter, Thermometer
Push-friendly buttons (very convenient to use them)
Amazing MIP screen adjustments (you can choose different screens with different data to be used as default)

Smartphone Link/App Connectivity Features (for time sync and watch adjustments)
Polar Software for better measurement opportunities (Running Index, Cardio Load Status, Energy Used, Breathing Exercise, Nightly Recharge)
Hourly Time Signal (a simple CASIO feature, but we like it. P.S. You need to update your watch software for this feature to appear. With outdated software, the watch doesn’t have it)
What we don’t like in GPR-H1000 *by casiofanmag editors with 10+ years of experience writing about CASIO watches
Solar-assisted charging (enough for timekeeping mode, but not enough for sports modes).
Thick (because of the Heart Sensor bulkiness: 20.3 mm VS traditional 13.4 mm in DW-5600)
Raw CASIO software (can bug at times, but they are improving it)
No import to third-party apps like Strava (can be fixed with a new software update)
It can take a long time (1min or so) to get the GPS signal (can be fixed with a new software update)
It still requires additional cable charging (which is relevant to all sports watches)
MIP display functions have fewer dynamics in comparison with traditional TN-LCD or STN-LCD (slower refresh rates, no milliseconds)
It doesn’t support chest heart rate sensor for more accurate measurement
It is not so that independent, autonomous like previous Rangeman watches (but more functional)
Has almost the same features as in GBD-H2000

What we don’t like in GBD-H1000 *by casiofanmag editors with 10+ years of experience writing about CASIO watches
Solar-assisted charging (enough for timekeeping mode, but not enough for sports modes)
Thick (because of the Heart Sensor bulkiness: 20.4 mm VS traditional 13.4 mm in DW5600)
Raw CASIO software (can bug at times, but they are improving it)
No hourly signal (a simple feature, but we haven’t found it)
It doesn’t support chest heart rate sensor for more accurate measurement
MIP display functions have fewer dynamics in comparison with traditional TN-LCD or STN-LCD (slower refresh rates, no milliseconds)
It still requires additional cable charging (which is relevant to all sports watches)
It looks like the G-SHOCK MOVE APP will be outdated soon
