G-SHOCK expands the range of defense based on the performance of shock resistance and 20 ATM water resistance. Sports models for workouts and fitness have also become a hot genre in recent years. Among them, the “GMD-B800” series equipped with a pedometer using a three-axis acceleration sensor and a mobile link function is recommended.
The GMD-B800 is a digital version of the previously announced analog digital model ” GMA-B800 “. In fact, besides the functions, the case and band are completely common specifications with the GMA-B800. The only difference is the module, coloring, and price. After that, due to the different modules, there is a difference in battery life (GMA-B800 is 2 years, GMD-B800 is 3 years).
However, the only sports color introduced this time is the GMD-B800 (currently). Sports color is a coloring that is often used in training wear in recent years. The GMD-B800 comes in a lineup of black x pink, as well as black x pink, which reminds me of that person’s tracksuit (which I associate without permission).
Pink, which is the accent color of GMD-B800SC-1JF, is applied to the letters on the dial and the connection between the case and the band. The latter serves not only as a design accent, but also as a part that enhances the fit between the watch and the wrist. It is molded in one piece with a translucent soft resin, and the color is fashionable clear pink and the fineness of the art. Thanks to these parts, the watch fits snugly on your wrist.
