G-SHOCK Adds New Layered Carbon Bezel

(Sponsored post) The G-STEEL GSTB100XA-1A connected watch is built with a bezel that combines high-tech Torayca® and Nanoalloy®, two materials that give the bezel outstanding shock resistance characteristics. This ultra-strong layered carbon bezel is a first for G-SHOCK, and it represents a new level in toughness. How tough? G-SHOCK makes this bezel using the same materials used to shock-proof applications on automobiles, airplanes, wind power generators, bicycles, golf club shafts and even fishing rods.

The new watch retains the bezel’s dark carbon color on its dial, which also offers just a touch of metallic blue accent. That same blue can be seen on the inner side of the hefty urethane band, which G-SHOCK produced using a bi-color molding process that makes it possible to decorate the outer surface with a sporty pattern and blue urethane for the inner surface.

The G-STEEL GSTB100XA-1A is equally tough inside, with a Bluetooth connection function that allows it to link with a smartphone via the G-SHOCK Connected app and receive time information from an internet timeserver.

The functions include Tough Solar in combination with G-SHOCK’s own power saving technology. This means the watch will always have a stable supply of power, high brightness LED light illumination, and dual dial World Time.

Once linked, the watch offers myriad additional functions, including access to world times in 300 cities, an alarm, a countdown timer, hand alignment correction, home city time swapping, phone finder and many more.

The G-SHOCK G-STEEL GSTB100XA-1A connected watch is built with a bezel that combines high-tech Torayca® and Nanoalloy®, and includes a full lineup of G-SHOCK features.

Even without a link, the GSTB100XA-1A includes a full lineup of G-SHOCK standard features, including a battery level indicator, and a high-brightness LED light—all under a shock resistant sapphire crystal.

The GSTB100XA-1A is priced at $600 at gshock.com, select jewelers, select Macy's, and the G-SHOCK Soho Store.
