Is this Casio Smartwatch the one we wanted?
Casio G-Shock launches a new smartwatch in their renowned square shape. Check it out!
Finally, Casio G-Shock has added a smartwatch to its G-Squad line by integrating the heritage of G-Shock Square. Presenting the DW-H5600 series:
The smartwatch is set to release on 19th May in Japan as well as US as per initial reports. There is a pre-order option placed in the US website, so check it out if you are interested. This will be a game-changer for those G-Shock enthusiasts who craved a G-Shock heritage special. It comes in 5 models with a mix black and blue colours as well as a mix rubber and metal bezels.
Casio already has the GBD200 and H1000 series which are both smartwatches, however, the first does not come with a heart sensor and the second is quite large at over 56mm. The DW-H5600 comes at 44mm in an octagonal shape, heart sensor, solar-powered, electrical charging and the renowned MIP display which the GDB200 so popular (I have one and absolutely love it). The watch also comes with a horde of other features that are seen in only some G-Shocks such as moon data, sunrise/sunset display, power-saving, airplane mode in addition to others.
Personally, looking forward to the release and of course, want to get my hands on one to review (possibly keeping it as well). I would probably go with the rubber bezel blue or black versions.
