From G-SHOCK, the watch that is constantly testing new limits in timekeeping toughness, comes a new series with Carbon Core Guard structure, which takes toughness to a new level. The case is made of fine resin that incorporates carbon fiber for light weight along with rigidity that is superior to that of resin. This material protects the internal module from shock-induced damage and deformation. The dual back cover protects the back surface against impact. Button structure shock resistance has been improved, which eliminates the need for external button guards.
The face of the watch consists of a disk pointer and raised hour markers for a look of bold toughness. This new standard bearer of the G-SHOCK lineup combines a new shock resistant structure with urban outdoor styling that reflects its toughness.

The small cases of these models are great for active training. Back wings on the inside of the bands where they connect to the case, a new band ring shape that prevents sliding, more band holes to allow better tightness adjustment, and a soft urethane band, which maintains its suppleness even after long wear all add up to a more comfortable fit. A mid-size design that’s optimal for running and training, Bluetooth®, phone app linking and much more makes the GBA800 the perfect choice for everyday wear and fitness training.
