This innovative, further toughened G-SHOCK structure resists dropping shocks, centrifugal gravity and vibrations. Persistently advancing its evolution, G-SHOCK has broken through yet another boundary in the realm of toughness.
CASIO’s proprietary G-SHOCK structure absorbs and repels strong shocks and vibrations. This core G-SHOCK technology continues its perpetual evolution.
Centrifugal gravity-resistant structure
Highly detailed calculations based on the weight of each hand are conducted to achieve an optimal balance and assure stable hand movement, even under pressure from powerful gravitational forces.
Gravitational force test
The G-SHOCK Gravitymaster’s centrifugal gravity resistance specifications significantly surpass 15G, the maximum level required of cockpit instruments by the continuous acceleration test standards for aircraft equipment (ISO 2669). Tests show that the 1/100-second stopwatch and other functions operate normally under conditions such as air racing with strong gravitational forces.
αGEL®* is employed as an insulator surrounding the module inside the case. This structure prevents damage and operating errors under conditions of violent vibrations.
Vibration resistance is tested for approximately 10 hours under oscillation conditions reaching amplitudes up to 20mm, frequencies up to 1000Hz and 20G acceleration. G-SHOCK is certified as surpassing the vibration endurance test standard (JIS D1601 Class 4 A) for in-vehicle parts on 2-wheeled motor vehicles (vibrations up to 20G).
