Casio G-Shock GBD-200UU review: a compact running watch that doesn’t break the bank

The G-Shock GBD-200UU is a hybrid smartwatch that’s designed to be worn everyday, but offers some fitness-tracking capabilities. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The utilitarian grey and black colourway is also stylish, but we found the strap easily picks up dirt . (image credit: The Gear Loop)
But the Casio G-Shock GBD-200UU is refreshingly small, neat and light, boasting a fairly traditional digital display that almost has an 80s feel to it. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Without GPS, it’s never going to rival a lot of the fitness watches out there, but for basic run tracking and an overview of step counts, it’s absolutely fine. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Once the run is over, all data is processed by and accessed through the Casio G-Shock Move app. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Out in the field, we found the watch to be relatively accurate and it painted a good picture of a run when we headed out with our phone. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Casio G-Shock GBD-200UU is small and comfortable enough to wear all day, but offers just enough smart features to make it genuinely interesting. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
