If You’re a Surfer, This Is the Watch You Need

March 20, 2020 Watches By

Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) and Baselworld 2020 are canceled but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. To stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases, visit our tag page.

Hell, even if you’re not a surfer, it’s hard not to love the new G-Shock G-LIDE GBX-100. Built like a tank with a stainless steel bezel and a resin case and measuring slightly larger than the beloved 5600-series, the new GBX-100 includes tidal information on 3,300 surf locations available via the G-Shock Connected app and comes in three colors, including black and white, black, and blue. With built-in training measurement functions (speed, pace, lap, calorie log, etc.), a high-resolution MIP LCD screen, Bluetooth connectivity, a Super Illuminator LED Light, dual time, 200m of water resistance and a urethane band, the G-LIDE GBX-100 will be available in May in three colors for roughly $219.
