First introduced in 1983, Casio G Shock watches are a set of watches made to survive the toughest of conditions be it on land, water or air, claims the company. As per Casio, the watches were originally developed as shock-resistant digital wrist watch for men. Some of the current models include atomic clock synchronisation and tough solar technology while many new models come with metallic bands made up of either steel or titanium. The timekeeping is also either a mix of analog and digital, purely analog, or purely digital.
Designed primarily for people involved in the military, adventure sports and other outdoor-centric activities, the G-shock wristwatches come with features such as GPS, thermometer, barometer, stopwatch feature, electroluminescent backlight, countdown timer and water-resistance of 200 metres.
