Why do kids want G-Shock Watches? Because they are tough and have features to explore. Kids have the feeling of wearing that grown-ups wear. Besides, most kids are very active in their sports and exploring the neighborhood. Due to the durability, shock resistance and water resistance along with different colors g shock watches are most suitable for kids and teenagers in 2018.
G-Shock watches are like love at first sight for kids. They fall in love with the robust design and features of the g-shock watches. Yet, there are not so many g-shock watches for kids. Let’s look for the best g-shock for younger people.

The main difference of this watch with the previous one is solar power. This is quite huge. Because of the solar power, it has auto light functionality. You can always turn on and off the feature. The auto light feature will not work if the battery level is below M.

4. Casio G-Shock DW9052-2
If you are looking for introductory g-shock with basic features then this DW9052-2 is a perfect fit for you. It has most basic features for children under 10 who wants to have a g-shock watch.
Many kids fancy colorful watches. For them, this blue one will be great. It is shock resistant like other g-shock watches but lacks in features. Still, it has an alarm, chronograph and backlit light for darkness.
The 200-meter water resistant capacity is more than enough for kids to take the watch in the swimming pool without damaging it. The rubber band is very comfortable and very light which is essential for small kids.
There is a sister concern of Casio G-Shock. It is called baby-g. Baby-G watches are mostly for women. There is also a baby-g logo on the watch. That’s why most boys do not want to wear them. Baby-G watches are perfect for girls who want g-shock watches. These watches are very colorful.
5. Casio Baby-G BGD140-1ACR
It is a black Baby-G watch which is rather unusual for a girl. Most girls like colorful watches. I think it is a unisex watch. If your kid does not mind having a baby logo on his wrist, then it can be a great g-shock watch for kids.
It has basic features of a g-shock watch. The watch is shock resistant and has a backlight afterglow. I like the world time feature which provides time for 48 cities of 29 time zones.
This baby-g for children is water resistant up to 200m which is very basic for g-shock watch. Overall, a robust watch with a good price.
6. Casio Baby-G BGA110-7B
Baby-G BGA110-7B is another unisex watch for boys and girls. Kids who want analog and digital format on the same watch will love this watch.
It has Japanese quartz movement. Water resistant capacity of this watch is quite low compared to other g-shock watches. It is water resistant up to 100 meters. It is still enough for kids to go swimming wearing the watch.
7. Casio Baby-G BG169R-4 Pink
It is a g-shock watch for girls. It is a pink watch. I have never seen a boy wearing a pink g-shock. Most girls will like this watch.
Featurewise, it is quite strong and tough watch. It is water resistant up to 200 meters. It is a great g-shock watch for surface water sports as well as professional marine activity.
It has following features:

It is as good as any other g-shock watch and it is pink. So there is quite a nice combination. I will recommend this watch to girls.
