The new GSTB100D-1A9 extends the look of the BLE Connected G-STEEL models announced last month, boasting a new sleek black and gold face, bezel, and accents in addition to the solid stainless steel band.
The refined timepiece utilizes Bluetooth technology to pair with smart phones via the G-SHOCK connected app, giving users the ability to use the Phone Finder feature in addition to changing time zones, checking the battery level, and setting a countdown timer or alarm from the app. Each watch also features solar-powered charging capabilities, a new functional face design with a "turbine inspired" level indicator disc, and a super LED light for maximum visibility.
Each model also comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology of shock resistance and 200M water resistance, as well as world time, dual time display, neo-brite luminous hands, an LED super illuminator light, daily alarm, 24-hour stopwatch and 24-hour countdown timer, and a full auto calendar – all in a 53.8mm case.

This watch is pressure rated at 200 metres or 20bar. This means it is suitable for water sports and wearing in the surf and diving. No Watch should be used in hot water - Spa's showers etc as the hot water expands the air inside the watch breaking the seals and then when it cools it will drag in moisture into the watch movement.
