Did you know that one of the most famous watch brands in the world owes its existence to an accident? Nearly four decades ago, Casio engineer Kikuo Ibe dropped and shattered a treasured timepiece passed down from his father. He was so affected by this, the story goes, that he decided to make a watch so durable it couldn’t be broken by dropping it. In 1983, after building two hundred prototypes, Ibe’s team released the first Casio G-SHOCK … and in the thirty-eight years since, these robust wristwatches have ringed the wrists of special forces operators, Air Force pilots … even astronauts. 

It took until 2021 for Casio to merge that legacy of durability with a feature set complete enough to be called a smartwatch, and the result is the Casio GSW-H1000 review device that’s the focus of this video. Under other circumstances this watch would represent a stellar starting point for a new chapter in G-Shock history. But in watches more so than most things, it really is “all in the timing” … and sadly, there’s never been a worse time to build or to buy a Google-powered smartwatch.
