TOP G-SHOCK Watches with Step tracker, Pedometer | 2022 Updates

All G-Shock Watches (in the listings below) are equipped with a 3-axis accelerometer that detects body movements and measures step count and distance traveled. It is a handy feature to stay fit and control your daily activities and calories consumption. 3-axis accelerometer is not a GPS sensor but a low-energy consuming Casio technology (since some watches have no built-in GPS the devices can’t track distance while kayaking, biking, flying, etc. Basically, anything that cannot track your steps based on your wrist/arm movement). Some G-Shock watches may have both: accelerometer and GPS. We identify such watches in the listings as well and provide some information about usage patterns. If you want to bring more value to the very guide, please leave your comment. Again, we want to create the best guide ever for Casio watches and you may help us:)

Top G-Shock Watches with built-in Pedometer and built-in GPS Sensors*

*You do not need GPS if you are not a runner (or some other athlete) and just need to know the number of steps. G-Shock watches with GPS cost higher and require charging after constant work. GPS doesn’t require your wrist measurements, and that’s why it works entirely differently.


Built-in 3-axis Accelerometer PROs & CONs

PROsCONs
Low-energy consuming2-3 years battery but no more (easy to replace)
Accurate readingsonly if you use your wrist correctly (like any other step tracker)
Cheaper than GPScannot use with the sport without wrist activities
Automatic algorithmic accuracy correctnessonly if the watch can sync with your phone (usually with watches produced since 2021)

Top G-Shock Watches with built-in Pedometer and Phone GPS**

**A good combination if you want to track your steps daily and sometimes track your pace and distance during any running activity (pace and distance are suitable only for the G-SQUAD line). Note, such watches do not have built-in GPS sensors, so you need to sync your Phone GPS with the appropriate app (like G-Shock Move App) and use it while running. After syncing, your running data will be displayed on the watch screen (which is very convenient). Besides, your phone GPS can correct your pedometer settings automatically. How does it work? You do one run with the phone and the watch. The watch learns with its built-in accelerometer about the actual GPS measured distance from the phone. After that, you can run without the phone, and the watch itself tracks the distance quite accurately based on your movement (step tracker algorithm).

*GG-B100 & GR-B200 do not use Phone GPS for running activities, only for the Mission Log function. Be attentive while choosing:)


Top G-Shock Watches with built-in Pedometer***

***A good choice for hikers and people who like walking and consider it an excellent daily activity. The listed watches will provide essential statistics and calories burnt based on your wrist measurements. Unlike GPS, a built-in 3-axis accelerometer doesn’t require constant charging and uses your watch battery. 

Note! 

  1. The step count can show a value up to 999,999 steps. If the step count exceeds 999,999, the maximum value (999,999) remains on the display.
  2. To prevent miscounts, the displayed count does not increase for about 10 seconds after you start walking. After you have been walking for about 10 seconds, the correct count appears, including the steps you took during the previous 10 seconds.
  3. The step count is reset to zero at midnight each day.
  4. To save power, step counting stops automatically if you take off the watch (no detectable watch movement) and you do not perform any operation for two or three minutes.
  5. The Step Count Graph is updated even when any one of the events below occurs.
    • When accelerometer operation is stopped to save power
    • When counting is not possible due to accelerometer error or insufficient power.

You ask, we answer!

Can I use a Pedometer for Running?

Yes, you can. You will have pace and distance data but based on your wrist measurements (in modern watches that support G-Shock Move App). GPS data will be more accurate, but more expensive as well. That may be a good solution if you do not care very much about 100% accuracy.

Are there G-Shocks with Pedometer and Tough Solar?


G-Shock GBD-H1000 Series can boast Tough Solar technology. Solar Energy is not enough to power GPS fully, but maybe enough for a Pedometer.

Is G-Shock Pedometer better than a Smart Band?

It provides you with almost the same data, but you also have an attractive watch on your wrist that is very tough and water-resistant. You will also have essential statistics on your phone.
