Casio is pushing the G-Shock into tactical territory with the release of a new Gravitymaster, the GRB200, a watch developed with aviation professionals in mind. This is a watch that dials up the usual suite of G-Shock features to 11 thanks to the inclusion of an array of sensors and bluetooth connectivity, to say nothing of the trick new case. While there are some surprisingly approachable and wearable G-Shocks, the Gravitymaster ain’t one of em, and if it could talk we’d expect a ‘Sorry, not sorry.’ for that fact.
The GRB200 is an imposing bit of kit, with a case that measures a healthy 63×54.1×18.3mm. Much of that is owed to the Carbon Core Guard Structure which houses the module. This structure is resin based and reinforced with carbon fibers built up in layers. The carbon is visible thanks to a semi-transparent top layer, adding that signature look to a case already bristling with oversized buttons and displays.
