Casio carried the iconic G-Shock series, which came into our lives about 40 years ago, into the future. The company, reinterpreting the series’ muscular design, came up with the G-Squad Pro smartwatch, which is based on tough conditions.
The first Casio G-Shock smartwatch: G-Squad Pro and its features
Casio decided to make G-Shock’s watch line smart. Casio smartwatch G-Squad Pro also follows the design lines of its predecessor G-Shock series. G-Squad Pro echoes this muscular design and is water resistant to 200 meters.
The watch, which has the waterproof function of the G-Shock series, can also withstand 20 bar of water pressure. This value is the lowest pressure level required for high pressure and water sports.
The Casio G-Shock smartwatch LCD screen has a feature that is always visible. This round screen has a resolution of 360 x 360 and a size of 1.2 inches. The screen, which is used as a double layer, can be used in both color and black and white.
According to Casio’s data, the battery of the smart watch on the color screen can last about a day and a half. When the G-Squad smartwatch is only used for the watch function and basic sensors, the battery life extends up to a month. According to Casio, it takes 3 hours for the smart watch to be fully charged.
G-Squad Pro appeals to sports enthusiasts. The durable smartwatch contains settings for basic sports such as running, swimming, walking and cycling. In addition to these settings, it also supports a total of 15 activities such as fishing, surfing and skiing.
The smart watch also has the function of projecting two sports activities on the screen at the same time. However, with the G-Shock smartwatch application it is possible to track all activities and access historical data.
Casio equipped the smart watch with GPS, compass and basic sensors such as barometer, gyrometer, accelerometer. The new Casio smartwatch also has important sensors such as oxygen saturation, heart rate, sleep and stress monitoring.
The company used titanium under the G-Squad Pro case and aluminum alloy in the buttons and base parts.

The model, which will be presented for the first time by Casio in the US and UK markets, has a retail price of $ 699. This price is set at £ 599 in the UK market. The colors of the smart watch are red, black and blue.
