Casio has a number of hybrid and Wear OS smartwatches, but as we roll from winter to spring the company is looking to debut a new line to take advantage.

G-Shock Women has announced new S Series of hybrid smartwatches in four pastel colorways - black, light green, white, and light pink. Each of these come with a number of smart features.

The big one is step tracking with a step counter display that'll show you the percentage you've completed your goal. There's also an activity graph of the last five hours, so you can see how you've done. The inclusion of non-active alerts should hopefully get you moving when you've been stationary for long periods.

As these are G-Shock watches, they're also built to withstand some damage from your outdoor adventures. They're both shock resistant and waterproof up to 200 metres. There's an auto LED light to aid visibility in the dark, four daily alarms, a 1/100th second stopwatch, and a countdown timer.

The new G-Shocks aren't laden with smart features, but if you don't care about heart rate training or tracking runs or rides and prefer the simplistic approach, you may well have some time for the hybrid duo.

Each of the G-Shock watches will go for $130 and will be available in Macy's, the G-Shock store in Soho, and from gshock.com.
