Happy hump day, friends! Today, I am throwing it back to my high school days with the “IT” watch I used to LIVE in. Literally. I’m talking about G-Shock watches!! I hope some of y’all remember what I’m talking about so I don’t sound TOO old! These were literally the coolest watches back when I was a teen and are making a major comeback. I had three different watches in all different colors. When I would find a new one, I would wear it for months, maybe even a year without taking it off. I was the biggest tomboy growing up so I would actually wear my watches 24/7; in the shower, sleeping, throughout the day. I even had a gnarly watch tan line when it was time to change to another color.
Since these watches were such a huge part of my youth, I wanted to dedicate this post to G-Shock! I mean, everyone loves a good throw back. Do y’all have those random pieces of clothing or even old notes from school that just make all of the memories rush back? That is how I feel with these watches and I know so many of y’all are the same! A couple months ago I was browsing watches online and almost fell out of my chair from excitement! I yelled at my husband in excitement, “OH MY GOSH!!! Do you remember how amazing these watches were?! They are BACK!!!” I immediately had to have one! Specifically, the white watch that was JUST like my very first watch.
G Shock Smart Watch Review
The G Shock smart watch I’m wearing in these photos is the S-Series in white. These come in a slew of fun colors and run around $130 each. But don’t get discouraged from the price. The G Shock smart watch is a great investment and will last you YEARS. Take it from me. Someone who owned multiples of these back in the day who also wore them for months and years straight! Obviously, we all know that these are never going out of style. I’m still wearing one and it’s been over 10 years since I was in high school. More like 15 years since I graduated. Feeling quite old right now!
These things were the Apple Watch before those were ever invented! G-Shock watches are water resistant, have alarms, step tracker, a stop watch, and even a calendar! Seriously you guys, G-Shock was ahead of the game!
If you are looking for a versatile watch that is also extremely functional, I highly recommend these G-Shock watches. I chose the white one, obviously because the first one I had was white, but also because it literally goes with anything and everything. It’s also the best “color” for Spring and Summer. I know quite a few of y’all have asked if they are still pretty chunky. Yes, they are but not as big as you would think. The watch I am wearing is actually pretty minimal and fits my smaller wrist quite well and comfortably. I found that I can easily wear this watch with my workout gear, athleisure-wear, jeans and heels or even a fun summer dress.
I hope y’all enjoyed reminiscing about this watch as much as I did!
