TOP G-SHOCK Watches with Step tracker, Pedometer | 2024 Updates

Added GPR-H1000 (January 2024 new release), DW-H5600 (May 2023 new release), MRG-BF1000 (April 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 If you find something outdated, please push me here in the comments section or via my email.


The G-SHOCK Watches listed below have a 3-axis accelerometer that detects body movements and measures step count and distance traveled. This feature is great for staying fit and keeping track of your daily activities and calorie consumption. While the 3-axis accelerometer is not a GPS sensor, it is a low-energy consuming technology developed by Casio. Some watches do not have a built-in GPS, which means they cannot track distance while kayaking, biking, flying, or doing any activity that does not involve wrist/arm movement. However, some G-Shock watches have both an accelerometer and GPS. You can find information about these watches in the listings, including usage patterns. If you have any suggestions to improve this guide, please leave a comment. We aim to create the best guide possible for Casio watches, and your input can help us achieve that.


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**

**These watches do not have built-in GPS sensors, so you’ll need to sync your phone’s GPS with an appropriate app like G-Shock Move (or other CASIO official app) and use it while running. Once synced, your running data will be displayed conveniently on the watch screen. Additionally, your phone’s GPS can automatically adjust your pedometer settings. To achieve this, you’ll need to do one run with both the phone and the watch, and the watch will learn from the phone’s GPS measured distance. After that, you can run without the phone, and the watch will track the distance quite accurately based on your movement using the 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 the 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.
