The highly anticipated G-Shock G-SQUAD Heart Rate Monitor collection is finally here, packed with five sensor functions, a high-contrast LED display, GPS, solar assisted charging and of course, G-Shock’s first ever heart rate monitor. These are not your average fitness watches; they are advanced and ambitious wearables perfect for professional athletes and beginners alike who require only the best in comfort, performance and precision.


It’s been a long time coming, but G-Shock have finally revealed their first ever heart rate monitor watch. The  G-Shock G-Squad Heart Rate Monitor Collection consists of four models in total, each with optimal sensors on the back with a flash LED light that detects the blood flow under your skin to measure your heart rate. Measuring up to 220bph, the heart rate monitor using LED to penetrate the skin and blood vessels underneath ensuring a precise reading every time. In addition to this, there are four additional sensors for acceleration, magnetic direction, pressure and temperature. These provide features like the step counter, compass, altimeter, barometer and temperature gauge.


In addition to the heart rate monitor, the G-Shock G-Squad HR Collection delivers accurate VO2 max measurements by using data from your heart rate and running speed to calculate the maximum consumable oxygen uptake per kilogram of bodyweight in one minute. This is a fantastic feature for any fitness fanatic, especially those trying to build endurance for running and other cardio-based sports. It can be used as a benchmark for cardiorespiratory ability and for monitoring your overall health. The higher your VO2max score, the better your health, quality of life and performance is expected to be.


Another fantastic feature is the solar-assisted charging. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an outdoor runner or you generally find yourself indoors most of the day, this feature allows you to power your watch in fluorescent lighting and in the sunshine. The G-Shock G-Squad Heart Rate Monitor Collection can be powered on solar charging alone when exposed to fluorescent lighting for at least 8 hours a day and in the sun in just two hours.
