The 20bar specification implies an equivalent of 200 meters underwater; however, in practice, the situation is more complex – 200 meters underwater will withstand the watch under the condition of a “perfect” dive with no external forces [e.g., hand movements]. The actual safe depth for G-Shock is much shallower, and it isn’t easy to give an exact number. In any case, you cannot dive to such a depth without special equipment, and for professional divers, there is a separate line of watches called FROGMAN. The FROGMAN watches have unique professional functions such as depth gauge, dive time, and others.
