Why You Should Choose G-Shock Watches

G-Shock watches are targeted to those who are more into the outdoors and action orientated activities - no one would certainly want to wear their fancy-schmancy leather strap watch into the jungle and tumble down some rocks to just tell the time now, would they? So besides telling the time, what would anyone use a G-shock for?

Of course, you do not need to be an adventurer or an outdoor sports person to actually use a G-Shock watch - you could very well be an everyday person who just wants a watch that you can wear without being so worried about it. You know the fear of having a nice watch and then you're walking and you accidentally bump the watch onto something? With a G-Shock, the other thing would break instead of your watch.

G-SHOCK is also most commonly used with mountaineers, firemen, paramedics, police officers, astronauts, film directors, people working offshore, and soldiers. It was mentioned in Mark Bowden’s Blackhawk Down film that DELTA Operators donned G-SHOCK watches during combat events. G-SHOCK watches are considered to be ‘battle-ready’ and are 'mil-spec' (military grade ready) as they are very popular with Special Forces in both American and NATO nation military units. These people - especially the first responders, need the very basics to tell the time in the heat of their jobs, and they want a watch that is virtually unbreakable no matter what.

Triple 10 Concept

One of the best reasons why you should choose a G-shock watch is its durability. Each watch is subject to the "Triple 10" development concept: the watch must survive a 10-meter free-fall, 10-bar water resistance, and have a 10-year battery life.

Protective Design

One of the most basic protective design points in every G-Shock watch is the thick prominent bezels to avoid buttons and glass from touching onto flat surfaces, protecting them from direct impact-shocks. G-shock watches also have the Triple G Resist technology which is a proprietary shock-absorption structure that protects the watches as well as repels stronger shocks and vibrations.


G-Shock watches are also solar-powered and is able to convert even the weakest of light from our electrical lights into power for your watch - your watch can literally run forever... until the end of the world arrives, but I'm sure even by then your G-Shock watch would outlive a lot of other things.

Atomic Timekeeping and more

Your G-Shock self-adjusts and receives time calibration signals which will then adjust the watches' time automatically. No more having to set your watch to a different time if you travel, your watch does it. Aside from that a G-shock watch also has a digital compass, an altimeter for altitude/barometric pressure, and temperature. These are highly sensitive sensors that can detect even sudden changes in the environment.

The tough watch movement in the body of a G-shock watch is made from a combination of technologies; the result of which is the solar-powered and radio-controlled (atomic timing/GPS) watch movement. GPS capabilities of the watch enable it to track GPS satellites and give a real-time update of the time zone by current positioning and time data.

Great for Athletes and Extreme Sports

Being marketed as an outdoors and sports watch most of the time, it is to no surprise that G-Shock’s tough watches have attracted a lot of interest from extreme sports athletes. Ranging from BMX riders to professional skateboarders to professional surfers, a lot of extreme sports athletes have endorsed G-Shock. Viki Gomez, Nigel Sylvester, Stevie Williams, Louie Vito, Kazuhiro Kokubo, Pedro Barros, Yadin Nicol, Teppei Tajima, Joel Centeio, and Gabe Kling are the few names that toughen the long list of athlete ambassadors for G-Shock.
