Today, G-Shock debuted the new GBX100 G-Lide collection consisting of three color variations featuring an octagonal-shaped resin case with a metal bezel.
The new G-Lide GBX100 models display information that’s crucial to surfers such as high and low tide times and levels and can also connect to the G-Shock Move App via Bluetooth to access additional utilities.
New functions made possible by the smartphone connectivity allow you to view tide point settings at approximately 3,300 locations around the world, a step tracker, and implement training plans that can be tailored to your workout goals.
Available in dark gray, white/black, or aquamarine — the eight-sided case has a wider updated face design and a high-resolution Memory in Pixel (MIP) LCD display that further enhances user experience. Surfers (and swimmers) can quickly access standard functions like the Tide Graph, Moon Data, high and low tide times, as well as training measurements such as (distance, speed, pace, lap, pitch).
A metal double-layer bezel gives this accessibly priced surfer’s watch a more premium feel, plus it’s made to withstand the impact of underwater rocks. The surface of the forged stainless steel bezel has been vertically brushed, further enhancing the upgraded aesthetic. The GBX100’s soft urethane band has slits to allow for the draining of water and sweat for improved comfort.
The GBX100 is 200 meters water-resistance, highly shock-resistant, has a super Illuminator activated by pushing the knurled button at the bottom of the case, world time (300 cities with the G-Shock Move App), stopwatch, countdown timers, 4 alarms, and a full auto-calendar, and a plethora of additional features.
The new GBX100 timepieces retail for $160. The GBX100-1 (dark gray) will be available for purchase mid-June, and the GBX100-2 (aquamarine) and GBX100-7 (white/black) will be available for purchase mid-July.
