The newly launched models are both from the G-SQUAD line of watches from G-shock. The new watch range has the blue and garnet team colours of the FC Barcelona team. The bands are designed in tandem with the past and present team uniforms. They are imprinted with the club motto, “Més que un club” (“More than a club”) in the local Catalan language.
The GBD-H1000BAR features a metal bezel in bright gold ion plating that shines like a winners’ trophy cup, while the band loop on both watches features the four red stripes of the Catalan flag. The packaging design is also FC Barcelona team colours. The watches come in Memory in Pixel (MIP) LCD display and have soft urethane bands.
Both the watches are equipped with an accelerometer to count steps and track distances. The GBD-H1000BAR also comes with a heart rate monitor and GPS tracking. Both new models also offer Mobile Link functions, which when paired with a dedicated smartphone app, allow users to check life logs with data on step counts and calories burned, activity logs and more.
