Of course, the watch is highly resistant to shocks and water-resistant up to 200 metres.

3. Shock Resistance
Like any good G-Shock, the G-Steel GSTB300E-5A is highly resistant to shocks. The shock-resistant construction protects against impacts and vibration.
It provides a protective cushioning of the watches key mechanical parts. That means you can drop it from pretty much any height, and it will prevent contact failure and malfunction.
When the watch is dropped, essentially what happens is the fully enclosing bezel absorbs the shock and protects the buttons.
The bezel also helps to guard the mineral glass face as well, and because the band is curved stiffly, it serves a shock absorber.
4. Tough Solar Battery
Another awesome feature of the G-Shock G-Steel GSTB300E-5A is its solar-powered battery. Casio’s original solar-charging system converts not only sunlight but also light from fluorescent lamps and other sources into power.
It requires no user input as any light that enters the dial is trapped and it recharges the battery for up to 20-months.
The ability for the battery to recharge itself is especially useful considering the LED front and backlight consumes a significant amount of power.
It also has a battery level indicator that allows you to find out when you should be exposing your watch to light.
5. Awesome Functionality
This watch is packed with awesome features. To start with, the dial offers dual-digital multi-function displays so you can always check the day, date, alarm time, and city.
You can determine the hour and minute with ease because of the giant Arabic numeral “12” displayed prominently on the face.
It has a world time setting for over 39 time zones with daylight savings toggle as well as 5 multi-function alarms, a countdown timer, a 1/1000th of a second stopwatch, and a full-auto calendar.
It also has a hand retract function that moves the hands out of the way to provide an unobstructed view of the digital displays.
On top of that, the watch has a bunch of other cool features. From a mineral glass face to a double LED light and power-saving, this watch is stacked with a bunch of cool features that will assist you on your next adventure.
6. Stainless Steel Finish
This particular G-Steel adopts tough G-Shock styling with a disk indicator at 6 o’clock that shows the current mode and charge level, and a front button that completes the overall rugged look.
The solid band oozes class and gives the watch a distinctive premium look with resilience at the same time.
The metal bezel and band combine to create a design that is boldly masculine as well as sleek.
