Casio America this week previewed G-Shock G-Squad connected watches that can track steps and create timed workouts.
The G-Squad GBA-800 includes standard analog hands, a built-in accelerometer, and Bluetooth system. When users install the G-Shock Connected app, the watch can utilize linked functions like the Step Tracker, Timer, list recorded stopwatch data, set dual time display, and enable a smartphone alarm with the Phone Finder function.
The app breaks down step data to five metabolic equivalent levels based on step count and walking or running pace data.
The final product will include a multi-timer function for interval workouts and stopwatch measurement.
