Casio's newest watch belongs to its iconic G-SHOCK line-up, combining analog and digital components into one fitness-focused accessory. However, it also has Bluetooth so as to transfer workout progress to a paired smartwatch via the series' Move app. It displays steps, running distance and other metrics tracked by the watch.

Casio's new GBA900 has classic, slightly blocky G-SHOCK looks; however, the OEM also claims that it features a slimmer-than-usual (16.6mm) case. It also boasts a large 51.3×48.9mm face that incorporates an analog dial atop an LCD interface for its fitness- (well, mostly running-)performance tracking functions.

They include a circular indicator for total daily steps (which starts automatically as the user starts walking), which can be counted toward a daily target. The rest of the LCD can switch between a number of other use-cases, which include an interval timer and a multi-timer that can be set to as many as 5 different time settings.

It also has stopwatch and auto-lap functions. The G-SHOCK GBA900 is also rated to track metrics such as speed, running distance, pace and calories. It can log all this data to a paired smartphone via Bluetooth, to the Android/iOS G-Shock Move app.

The watch has the sensors necessary to track the user's progress such as accelerometers, and is also packed with stock Casio features such as 5-alarm management; shock and 200-meter (m) water resistance; 48-city world time and a double LED illuminator.

The new GBA900 may not have the fancy blood-oxygen or heart-rate sensors seen in other sport watches these days; however, it might make up for that with its price. It can be pre-ordered from gshock.com, as well as other Casio stockists, for US$130 at present.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
