Casio just announced two new variants to the G-SHOCK Move GBDH1000-1 and GBDH1000-1A7 both are full featured G-Shocks, tough and rigid and pure outdoor watches. The new line up is now equipped with heart rate monitor and GPS.
Casio has also made new phone apps available to make watch settings easier and to get the maximum for workout use. Customizable target-oriented workout plans can be easily managed. VO2 max calculation and other data analysis capabilities use a library by FIRSTBEAT, a renowned sport science company. Algorithms of improved accuracy support a higher level of training which gives out good indication of ones cardio pulmonary capacity during endurance training.
The surface form of the back covers of these models reduces interference with the back of the hand, while a soft urethane band provides a better fit to the wrist. Bi-color moulded buttons are designed for ease of use, while a high-definition MIP LCD makes display information more legible. Both USB and solar charging are supported, and solar charging can be used to power daily operation (except for pulse monitoring and GPS).
The ability to receive GPS signals lets you access location information when you need it. This, when used in combination with the stopwatch, makes it possible for you to keep track of running information like distance, speed, pace, and more.
Useful workout functions include an optical sensor for heart rate measurement, along with bearing, altitude/barometric pressure, and temperature sensors, and an accelerometer for step counting.
