G-Shock GSTB100X-1A

(Sponsored Post) For the first time, G-Shock’s innovative line of G-Steel watches offers a model with a high-tech carbon bezel. Standing out from other G-Steel watches, this GSTB100X-1A offers all the features of the Bluetooth connected line of G-Shock G-Steel watches, but with a bezel formed from a lightweight carbon material that maintains G-Shock’s outstanding shock-resistance characteristics. The bezel is forged from a combination of TORAYCA and NANOALLOY, resulting in a distinctive, all-black textured pattern.

Naturally, G-Shock’s legendary full-case shock resistance ensures that the watch’s list of timekeeping features and Bluetooth-connected functions operate flawlessly. After a simple pairing process with the G-Shock Connected app on your cellphone – available for both iOS and Android – the G-Shock GSTB100X-1A allows the user to set the timer, set the alarm, specify the second timezone and even check the charge level.

Additionally, should you misplace your phone, simply pressing the “FIND” button on the side of the watch will set off an incredibly distracting tone as long as your phone is within transmitting distance. Other functions include Tough Solar in combination with power-saving technology for a stable supply of power, high brightness LED light illumination, and dual dial World Time.

The G-Shock G-Steel GSTB100X-1A retails for $700 and is available at G-SHOCK retailers, including Macy's, gshock.com and the G-SHOCK Soho Store.
