Step Into Spring This Physical Fitness And Sports Month


Casio G-SHOCK and Pro Trek Timepieces Include Features for Active Lifestyles

DOVER NJ, May 14, 2019 - While it is well known that consistent physical fitness promotes many benefits, busy lives and full schedules often lead to a more sedentary lifestyle. Casio America, Inc. encourages consumers to celebrate Physical Fitness and Sports month during the month of May by making an effort to get moving! Even small actions, like taking a walk after dinner or spending time hiking outdoors instead of inside on the couch, can make a big impact. Casio’s portfolio of timepieces, including models from their PRO TREK and G-SHOCK lines, include features geared to support an active lifestyle.

Whether you want to ensure you’re getting your steps in through the day or training using interval workouts, stay on track with the G-SHOCK designed with athletics in mind. The GBA800UC is equipped with Bluetooth technology, compatible through the G-SHOCK Connected app. Employing new technology developed by Casio, the G-SHOCK Connected app displays a graph which breaks down daily steps taken in each of five metabolic equivalent (MET) levels, from data based on the step count and walking pace. The app also displays exact time of day the wearer’s calories were burned, while measuring MET levels, making it useful for interval training.

The GBA800UC also features front button case design, as well as a Training Log 200 LAP Memory, Training Timer, Target Alarm and Double Super Illuminator LED light to guide you through late-night workouts this Physical Fitness and Sports month. Absolute toughness is employed with 200M water resistance and shock resistance, while countdown and interval timers continue to help put you through your paces.

The GBA800UC is available in both in light blue (GBA800UC-2A) and beige (GBA800UC-5A) with a MSRP of $120. For more information, visit

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up."
