Casio's first G-Shock WearOS watch is the G-Squad GSW-H1000, which retails for $700

 The company that is responsible for producing a line of tough timepieces has introduced its first G-Shock watch that is compatible with Wear OS. The only watch offered by Casio that features a color display is the high-end G-Squad GSW-H1000 model, which retails for $700.

A number of Casio timepieces are designed to be worn in challenging environments. There is one thing that all watches in the G-Shock line have in common, and that is that they all use the company’s in-house developed operating system. To this point,

The Google Operating System is pre-installed on the Casio G-Squad Pro GSW-H1000 when you purchase it. Fans of WearOS can take heart in this development, as a number of other firms appear to be distancing themselves from the platform. One of the most frequent complaints is that the operating system is slow and consumes battery life in an alarmingly short amount of time.

Despite the fact that this is Casio’s first WearOS watch in the G-Shock line of watches, the company already has devices operating on Google’s platform. These are included in the company’s Pro Trek portfolio.

The GSW-H1000 has a design that is extremely comparable to that of previous G-Shock watches. Again, you will be receiving a device that is able to withstand quite a bit of abuse, as well as a body that is constructed of long-lasting components and a titanium back.

In terms of its technical specifications, the clock features a dual-layer display that is 1.32 inches in diameter. It has a monochrome LCD that displays the time and is always on, making it somewhat comparable to other Mobvoi watches. When the display is fully operational, it switches over to a color TFT LCD (320 x 300 pixels). In this mode, you will be able to view the full range of stats, which includes activity statistics, maps, notifications, and other information.

The GSW-H1000 comes equipped with a multitude of sensors, including an integrated GPS, compass bearing sensor, altitude, barometric pressure, optical heart rate sensor, and many more. Swimming is supported thanks to its 200 meters of water resistance, making it one of the approximately 24 indoor and 15 outdoor workouts that are offered. As you might anticipate from a watch designed for explorers, there is support for a number of more extreme sports, like snowboarding and surfing.

Under typical conditions, a single charge of the watch’s battery will only provide sufficient power to last for approximately 1.5 days. It actually shouldn’t come as a surprise given that Wear OS is powering it. If you use the “multi timepiece mode,” there is a way to get past this restriction. When set to this mode, the gadget can go without a charge for up to one calendar month. However, this only includes monochrome display and a subset of the available features.

One of the advantages of purchasing a watch that runs on Wear OS is the wide variety of third-party applications that can be loaded on the operating system. In addition, there are other capabilities available, such as access to Google Assistant.

The Casio GSW-H100 comes with a hefty price tag. It will cost you $699 in the United States or £599 in the United Kingdom. It is available in three different colors: red, black, and blue. The availability period begins in the middle of May.
