3. G-STEEL GSTS130BC-1A3
G-SHOCK adds 2 models to the G-Steel lineup offering a new type of band and bezel. The bands of these models combine different materials for outstanding strength and wear resistance. The core of the band is resin, the outer surface is CORDURA® fabric, which is stronger than nylon, and the inner surface is Tough Leather, which is used for heavy-duty work wear. The GST-S130BC Series models come with a urethane bezel that is marked with a pattern that recalls the grip of an instrument or tool. Other features include solar powered operation and hand shift, as well as Neon Illuminator for the analog face and a white LED backlight for optimal readability.
4. G-STEEL GSTB100D-1A9
G-SHOCK offers the first G-STEEL lineup models featuring chronograph performance in analog format. The dial at 9 oâ€™clock has a multi-functional rotating disk that is cut to resemble the thick blades of a jet engine. These watches are equipped with BluetoothÂ® that lets them connect with a smartphone at the press of a button, and acquire time information from an internet time server. The result is accurate timekeeping no matter where in the world you happen to be. Other functions include Tough Solar in combination with CASIO original power saving technology for a stable supply of power, high brightness LED light illumination, and dual dial World Time.

5. G-STEEL GSTB100XB-2A
This new model come with metal parts and buttons, and offer a choice
rose gold accent coloring on the iconic disk dial at 9 o’clock. The
colors of this watch give it a look that is both sporty and elegant.
The bezel of the GST-B100XB models has a highly fashionable design,
and is made of lightweight yet very rigid carbon material. Combining
state-of-the-art Toray Industries TORAYCA®*1 and NANOALLOY®*2 results in
a bezel with outstanding shock resistance characteristics. Highly
scratch resistant clear sapphire glass is used for the crystal to
enhance readability and appearance, and to create a design that is both
tough and good looking.
The hefty urethane band features a sporty outer surface pattern that improves its fit and looks great as well. A metal band ring reduces the chance of band breakage due to abrasion.
