The G-Shock Move (a.k.a. G-Squad HR) menu has been described as pretty complicated; I didn’t find it half as bad as many said – but it’s not the easiest.
Here’s an overview – which, of course, also gives an impression of the functions:
The displays are changed with the upper left “Disp” button.
The lower left “Mode” button goes through the different modes:
Things do get a bit more complicated with the ABC sensor mode, which also needs the “Disp” button to change between the different displays/functions offered here:
“Mode” again to continue…
Activity Log Display
Same story one down in the activity log mode – except not.
Now, as indicated by the arrow, it’s the “Run” button that leads into the “Log”.
Here it becomes somewhat clearer why the central “Run” button may have been chosen to enter into an entry, as the up “Fwd” and down “Rev” buttons are also needed, to choose entries.
Entering into such logbook data shows a bit more about it, mainly the laps.
We get back out to the main “Activity” display/mode with the (lower right) “Back” button now. From there, we can go on down to the next mode.
This next mode shows the training status – and more, when changing the displays (with the “Disp” button, surprise!).
As now indicated by the dots at the top of the screen, there are three displays here. Number 3:
Finally, at the bottom of this set of modes (and only reachable by going all the way down here…) lies the notifications display.
This first gives an overview of what types of notifications are or could be there and which have unread ones; the “Run” button allows one to check them:
And one can go another step further into individual notifications:
There is also a whole menu for all the settings which can be adjusted on the watch, reached by holding the “Disp” button for longer.
This menu works with the up/down (Fwd/Rev) and “Run” buttons and allows setting/changing:
- Home Time
- Time Adj(ustment)
- World Time
- Profile (personal data for HR interpretation)
- Auto Run Detection
- Airplane Mode
- Phone Finder function
- Reset All
- (Regulatory… to show FCC and CE certifications and the like)
Let’s not forget that this watch is made for workouts and, especially, running.
Unsurprisingly, the “Run” button leads directly into the running tracking mode, which starts the search for GPS and then shows a few displays with training data.
