From daily health management to increasing operational endurance, the new GBD-100-2 provides tools that support a wide range of fitness requirements.
The watch constantly communicates via Bluetooth® with your phone to support automatic time settings, phone notifications, step tracking and other functions during the day. Despite this, the battery life is approximately two years between replacements.
