Ride the waves of yesterday, catch the swells of today in a time-traveling G-LIDE. GBX-100 smartphone-linked timepieces travel between today’s colorful surfing palette and nostalgic monochrome inspired by black-and-white photos of surfing in days gone by. Just set the dedicated smartphone app to any of 3,300 surf spots around the world to check tide patterns and daylight conditions right where you are. The wide watch face with high-resolution Memory in Pixel (MIP) LCD provides clear readings of tide graphs, moon age, high/low tide times and levels, and sunrise/sunset times — all at a glance.
These new models are the latest additions to the G-LIDE lineup of G-SHOCK sports watches, which are a favorite choice among the world's top surfers.
These new models come with the ability to display information required by surfers (high tide and low tide times and levels), and to use a phone application for simple selection of one of approximately 3,300 locations around the globe.
The wide face and a high-definition MIP (Memory In Pixel) LCD improves display readability of standard functions like Tide Graph, Moon Data, high tide and low tide times, and sunrise and sunset times. This provides important information about current conditions at a glance, which, in combination with a collection of training measurement functions (distance, speed, pace, lap, pitch), provides plenty of support for surfers who meet new challenges around the globe.
In addition to powerful functions, these new models also incorporate advances in design, structure, and materials. The bezels of these models are made of resin and metal to allow them to withstand the impact of underwater rocks better. The surface of the bezel has a stainless steel cover with a hairline and honed finish that creates a look of elegant toughness. A resin guard structure that protects against impact from any direction combines with a button guard at 6 o'clock, which delivers outstanding G-SHOCK protection.
The end of the soft urethane band at 6 o'clock has slits to allow the draining of water and sweat for improved comfort.

The surf scene of today, in beautiful colour
This colour palette, inspired by beachy scenery, expresses the surf scene of today. The blue tones of the bezel and case represent the sea and the sky, while the beige hue of the band calls to mind a sandy beach.
The good old days of surfing, with a monochromatic worldview
A grey-scaled version of the colour model’s palette expresses the surf scene of yesterday. The effect is nostalgic, evoking the look of a black and white photograph.
The resin components of the bezel and band are made with bio-based resins produced using renewable organic resources, helping to reduce the ecological footprint of these watches.
Measurement functions: Useful for activities
These watches offer a diverse range of measurement functions, from surfing-oriented features like tide graphs and moon data to workout-oriented measurements, including distance travelled, time, and pace.
