The name of the gadget is not impressive. However, otherwise - the device surprises. The first thing worth mentioning is the shockproof case. The latter is made of a special polymer.

You have to try hard to break GBD-H1000. In addition, the product is not afraid of moisture. Exercising hard? Sweat won't hurt. A real find for athletes and fans of active lifestyles.

The chronometer has the appropriate sensors. The device measures atmospheric pressure, blood oxygen level and heart rate. There is also a thermometer, altimeter, accelerometer and compass.

The GBD-H1000 will not let you get lost. It claims to support GLONASS and GPS navigation systems. Among other things, there is a Bluetooth module - for synchronization with your smartphone.

You will receive notifications from your phone. It is convenient to monitor calls, mail and messengers. Separate talk deserves a solar panel. It recharges the battery all the time.

In basic mode, the GBD-H1000 will run out in a year. The included heart rate monitor lowers the bar to 66 hours. GPS has the worst effect on battery life. It drains the power supply in 14 hours.
