Combines toughness with functions for workouts.


Introducing the GBD-H1000, a watch equipped with a heart rate monitor and GPS functionality.

The GBD-H1000 is packed with five-sensor functions. In addition to an optical sensor that can measure heart rate by detecting the blood flow under the skin, a triple sensor that measures altitude/barometric pressure, compass bearing, and temperature, and an acceleration sensor that measures step count and distance traveled, the new watch comes with GPS functionality that acquires location information. By analyzing the measured data, the watch can display an indicator of cardiorespiratory capacity. By connecting the watch with a dedicated app on a smartphone, the user can manage measurement data history such as calories burned and logged travel.

The exterior delivers a good fit and practicality and features a high-definition, memory-in-pixel (MIP) LCD with high-contrast, a bezel configuration that is easy to operate even without looking at the buttons, large non-slip buttons, a curved back cover that carefully considers the back of the hand, and a soft urethane band. In addition to USB charging, the watch offers solar charging for daily use such as the vibrating notification function. This G-SHOCK is optimal for everyday health monitoring and training.




Optical sensor measures heart rate at wrist.
Shock-resistant with 20-bar water resistance.

Shock Resistant

Shock-resistant structure protects module. Complex rugged shape prevents direct shock to glass and buttons.

20-bar Water Resistance

Uses a waterproof charging terminal and delivers 20-bar water resistance even with a built-in optical sensor that measures heart rate at the wrist.


Improved operability and fit during training.

Bezel Design

Resin parts cover metal bezel for easy button pushing.

Button Design

The design combines resin and metal with enlarged measurement buttons. The other buttons are dual-colored with non-slip design for easy operation.

Case back cover and band piece

The fine resin back cover with a curved surface and the urethane band piece ensure a smooth fit with the back of the hand.

Soft Urethane Band

Uses soft, easy-fitting materials, provides improved ventilation with plenty of band holes, and allows fine length adjustments.

Technology for workouts




Get real-time measurements with five-sensor functions.

Optical Sensor (Heart Rate Monitor)

Optical sensors on case back of watch LED light, detect the blood flow under the skin, and measure heart rate.


3-axis accelerometer detects body movements and measures step count and distance traveled. Also interpolates distance measurements in environments where GPS measurement is unavailable.

Magnetic Sensor, Pressure Sensor and Thermo Sensor

Built-in miniature sensor takes measurements of compass bearing, altitude, barometric pressure, and temperature. Compass bearing and altitude information improve the accuracy of GPS distance measurements.

GPS Functionality

GPS functionality measures distance and tracks movement when running.

GPS Functionality

Acquires data of current location from GPS satellite, measures distance travelled, speed, pace, and other data. In addition to GPS, the watch acquires data from GLONASS and Michibiki (QZSS) satellite systems.

Display of Route Traveled

Link to a smartphone for map display of movement track on an app.

Automatic Time Adjustment

Can receive GPS signals to adjust watch time, date, and time zone.

* When automatically adjusting time while paired with a smartphone, GPS auto-signal reception is off.


MIP LCD (Memory in pixel LCD)

Displays various detailed measurement data in high contrast for easy viewing. Items displayed when training can be customized for ease of use.

Super Illuminator

Equipped with a high-brightness LED that automatically lights up in the dark when the wearer’s arm is tilted.


Vibration Notification Function

Vibrates simple alerts for time elapsed during training and heart rate zone, as well as smartphone email receipt and other notifications.

Notification Mode

Displays Bluetooth®-connected smartphone call, email, and SNS message receipt notifications for ease of checking even while exercising.

* Not displayed in training mode.

Solar-assisted Charging

Chooses between two charging methods: USB charging for GPS, heart rate monitor and other training functions and solar charging for daily watch use.

Solar Charging

Time mode (includes step count measurement and notification functions) can be powered with solar charging alone*.

* When charged about eight hours every day under indoor fluorescent lighting (500 lux), and charged at window side on a sunny day for two hours in a week (10,000 lux).

USB Charging

Charges even more quickly. After about 2.5 hours of charging, training features can be used continuously for up to 14 hours.

Supports efficient workouts with a variety of data.


Measures exercise intensity in real time and useful for pace management indicators.

Heart Rate Monitor / Heart Rate Zone Display

Displays the current heart rate, as well as a heart rate zone that shows exercise intensity at five stages, and is useful for pace management during activities and endurance training.

Heart Rate Monitor / Heart Rate Zone Display


Quantifies cardio-respiratory ability and useful for endurance training.

VO2max Measurement

Uses heart rate and running speed to calculate the maximum consumable oxygen uptake per kilogram of bodyweight in one minute (ml/kg/min). This can be used as a benchmark for cardiorespiratory ability when the user is trying to build endurance for running or other sports.

VO2max Measurement



App can create training logs and plans.

Special APP for GBD-H1000

Increase motivation by managing measurement data and training history with the app, which automatically creates training plans tailored to set targets.


Heart Rate Zone Goal


VO2max Fitness Category Type





Uses an algorithm from Firstbeat Technologies, which has a reputation for analyzing the latest fitness data. Maximizes training effectiveness with highly accurate data analysis.

Items measured using the FIRSTBEAT algorithm

VO2max (fitness level) Training status Training load Recovery time Training effect Training plan Calories burned during training

* The heart rate monitor displays the estimated heart rate based on the pulse measured by the sensor on the back of the watch (back cover). The heart rate data displayed by the watch is for reference only, and accuracy is not guaranteed.

* The heart rate measurement function of this watch is for recreational use only and cannot be used for any medical purpose.
* When without GPS signal reception or without a smartphone link, the watch operates with normal quartz accuracy (average monthly difference: ±15 seconds).
* The altimeter is a relative altimeter that converts changes in pressure to altitude. When atmospheric pressure changes due to weather conditions, the measured altitude value also changes.
* For outdoor temperature measurements, remove watch from wrist and make sure that it is not affected by body temperature, sweat (water droplets) or direct sunlight.
