One of our favorite things about Casio’s G-Shock range of watches is when it comes to colors and styles.

Red color.
The square GBD-200RD-4 red case is joined by a red urethane band, while the bezel around the MIPS LCD screen is black, as is the G-Shock logo.

The Bluetooth feature connects to the G-Shock Move app on your phone, and yet the watch doesn’t require regular charging because it relies on its internal battery, which should last for about two years before being replaced.

There’s a step counter for everyday use, and the watch also shows notifications from your phone. The expected toughness of all G-Shocks is built with shock resistance and water resistance up to 200 meters.

Again, the case and urethane strap are in red, and the same mix of black and red colors are incorporated into the analog-digital dial, but the case is 49mm wide and about 17mm deep. It has the same connected features as the GBD-200, the same battery life, and the same stiffness.
Prices are reasonable of both, with the GBD-200 priced at $130 and the GBA-900 at $150, making them a great alternative to the recently announced Garmin Vivomove Sport, which has a similar hybrid design but more fitness tracking capability.
