Casio Malaysia released the latest additions to the sports-driven G-SQUAD line in the G-SHOCK family of shock-resistant watches today. The five new DW-H5600 watches inherit the iconic shape of the very first G-SHOCK and are equipped with an optical sensor to measure heart rate. 

Developed in the quest to construct a watch that wouldn’t break, even if dropped, the first G-SHOCK  debuted in 1983. Casio has continued ever since to advance G-SHOCK functions, construction,  and design, with a constant focus on the shock-resistance of these watches.

The iconic form of the very first model, the DW-5000C, has been passed down to subsequent generations of G-SHOCK timepieces, and the 5600 line, which inherits that form, has continually evolved, incorporating the most advanced functions available in each new era.

The new watches support four different activities or exercises—running, walking,  gym workouts, and interval training—and they are equipped with an optical sensor and an accelerometer to measure heart rate, distance, and calories burned.

They utilize algorithms from Polar Electro Oy, a pioneer in the industry that has spent nearly 50 years perfecting the art of personalized guidance in fitness, sport, and health, to provide analysis on training and sleep based on tracked data.
