Equipped with Polar™ algorithms for training analysis

TOKYO, Feb. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Casio Computer Co., Ltd. today announced the launch of a new addition to the G-SQUAD sports line of the G-SHOCK family of shock-resistant watches. The GBD-H2000 offers support for multiple sports and features a lighter weight to ensure an even more comfortable fit. The new watch will be available in four models

The shock resistant GBD-H2000 is equipped with GPS functionality and six sensors to support a wide range of sports activities, yet is 38% lighter than its predecessor, the GBD-H1000. Casio has achieved this lighter design by creating a more compact case with an integrated GPS antenna and a carbon fiber reinforced bottom. The result is an even more comfortable fit on the wrist. The new watch is equipped with GPS functionality and an optical sensor to measure heart rate, as well as a compass, an altitude/atmospheric pressure sensor, a thermal sensor, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. These high-end technologies allow you to measure distance, speed, pace, etc., to support activities such as running, cycling or swimming.

Along with these activity measurements are included training analysis functions. Algorithms developed by Polar Electro Oy, an industry pioneer that has perfected the art of personalized guidance in fitness, sports and health for almost 50 years, are used to measure the load on the heart and lungs, analyze heart rate of energy used separately for carbohydrates, protein and fat, and track sleep. Pairing the watch with the dedicated CASIO WATCHES app allows users to review the watch's training data in greater detail, accessing activity logs, tips to improve sleep and much more. Solar-assisted charging is also included to enhance ease-of-use, offering a solar-charged* time display even when the battery is running low.

The case, bezel and strap are made of biomass plastics, an ecological material produced with raw materials from castor beans and corn.
