Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the release of the GBD-H1000, a watch equipped with a heart rate monitor and GPS functionality.
The GBD-H1000 is packed with five-sensor functions. In addition to an optical sensor that can measure heart rate by detecting the blood flow under the skin, a triple sensor that measures altitude/barometric pressure, compass bearing, and temperature, and an acceleration sensor that measures step count and distance traveled, the new watch comes with GPS functionality that acquires location information. By analyzing the measured data, the watch can display an indicator of cardiorespiratory capacity. By connecting the watch with a dedicated app on a smartphone, the user can manage measurement data history such as calories burned and logged travel.
The exterior delivers a good fit and practicality and features a high-definition, memory-in-pixel (MIP) LCD with high-contrast, a bezel configuration that is easy to operate even without looking at the buttons, large non-slip buttons, a curved back cover that carefully considers the back of the hand, and a soft urethane band. In addition to USB charging, the watch offers solar charging for daily use such as the vibrating notification function. This G-SHOCK is optimal for everyday health monitoring and training.
The training measurements and analysis use an algorithm by Firstbeat Technologies (which is also used by many other manufacturers including Garmin).
By analyzing measured data, the watch can display an indicator of cardiorespiratory capacity (VO2max). With the Bluetooth functionality and smartphone app, the user can manage recorded data such as calories burned and and logged travel. Training analysis functions include fitness level trend, training load trend, VO2max, and recovery time. The training log data measures up to 100 runs (and up to 140 laps per run) with elapsed time, distance, pace, calories burned, heart rate, maximum heart rate, aerobic training effect, and anaerobic training effect. A map display of the route traveled (recorded with GPS) is available on the smartphone app. The smartphone app can also automatically create training plans that are tailored to set targets.
The GBD-H1000 can be synced with training apps such as Strava
When will we see it in NZ? We dont know at this stage but will update as soon as we do.
