G-Shock has announced the new G-Squad GBA-900 series that can be linked to a smartphone via Bluetooth and used to measure distance.

Available in four colours, when teamed with its smartphone app (available on both Google Play and the Apple App stores), users can check their activity history, manage training, and set watch functions like auto time adjustment and phone notifications. A five-level exercise intensity graph and a daily goal attainment rate help keep users motivated when training.

The watch comes equipped with a double LED light for the face and digital display and a clear view of the watch face in dark places, and a soft urethane band for a comfortable fit on the wrist.
