After releasing GBD-H1000 and GBD-100 into our market earlier this year, Casio has recently released yet another G-Squad model into Malaysia. Called GMD-B800SC, the fitness-oriented G-Shock connected watch was first announced to the world back in March 2020 as part of Casio’s spring and summer 2020 collection.
In general, the GMD-B800SC is derived from another G-Squad model called GBD-800 that was originally launched in 2018. However, this model offers a slightly smaller case at 41.9mm as opposed to 44.8mm’s case on the GBD-800.
According to Casio, the slightly more compact physique of the GMD-B800SC is meant to deliver a better fit for those who love the signature G-Shock design but not its traditional beefy body. In terms of fitness features, they are identical to the GBD-800 which include step tracking via its 3-axis accelerometer, and interval timer.
Using the G-Shock Connected mobile app, users can then check out the analysis of their step counts as well as customised the interval timer and stopwatch for GMD-B800SC. The same app can also be used to dial in the settings on the watch such as alarms and dual time zones.
Through the app, users can utilise their G-Shock to activate an alarm on their phone, so that it is much easier to locate the misplaced device although this only applies if the GMD-B800SC and the phone are still connected to each other. As for pricing, the GMD-B800SC is available right away for RM 459 through G-Factory stores and authorised Casio dealers across the country.
