Often, when a new G-Shock is released, it tends to be big and bold. Which, for a brand that makes its bones for withstanding the abuses of daily life, that makes sense. Unless, that is, you’ve got a smaller wrist and just want a robust watch that won’t overwhelm your wrist. Enter the G-Shock GMS2100 series of watches.

Now, in the PR we received on these watches, they’re labeled as being for women, but we’re not just accepting the needless gendering of the watch. With a case that comes in just over 40mm (and is only 11mm thick) it should fit onto a wide variety of wrists, regardless of your gender, we say.

Sure, maybe the ping gold toned version GMS2100 could be considered feminine, but it’s got more of a brassy or rose gold tone to it, and I say if you like the color, go for it. Past that, the grey and olive green variants also come across as pretty unisex if you ask us.

Regardless of the colorway, the GMS2100 has the full suite of G-Shock features and functions. The olive one comes in at $180, while the other two – with their IP bezels – command a still-affordable price of $200. You can see the full collection over at gshock.com
