Casio G-Shock GBD-300, with a shock-resistant design, has been unveiled.

It supports Bluetooth connectivity and is compatible with the G-Shock Move companion app. The company has not yet revealed the price of the watch but has confirmed its design, specifications, and features. It is currently unclear whether the G-Shock GBD-300 will be introduced in India.

The newly unveiled Casio G-Shock GBD-300 features a slim, octagonal body and urethane band. The back bumper bezel has a bowl-shaped curvature which surrounds the case and helps with shock resistance as well as reduced contact with the back of the hand.

The underside covering joins the band and the bezel which is claimed to assist flexible wrist movement. The parts of the band which come into contact with the skin have a dotted texture that prevents slipping or sticking due to perspiration, according to the company.
