To help you figure out which G-Shock watch will best suit your child, we have compiled a list of the best G-Shock watches for kids down below.
Best G-Shock Watches for Kids
The vibrant color of the DW9052-2 model and its classic G-Shock design is a perfect companion for kids who enjoy a good adventure outdoors. The bold blue with a yellow and black accent makes this watch jump out visually, and will surely capture the attention of children. With its 45.5mm diameter case, this is one of G-Shock’s smallest models as well.
It comes with all the standard G-Shock functionalities such as a stopwatch, countdown timer, and daily alarm – perfect features for keeping track of a kid’s daily routine. The watch also has 200-meter water resistance and EL backlight for optimum visibility even in low-light environments.
G-Shock Baby-G BG140-1A
The Baby-G BG140-1A features similar qualities to its bigger G-Shock counterparts, both in design and functionalities. If you always liked the rugged appearance of the GW2310 series but wanted something smaller – this particular model may be right up your alley. The BG140-1A features a 42mm resin case. This watch is very ergonomic in its design and will fit right in with your outdoor gear and attire. Take note though that this watch comes with 100-meter water resistance, rather than G-Shock’s typical 200-meter water resistance rating.
That said, that little shortcoming is balanced out by the features that come with this Baby-G model. It features a World Time (48 cities, 29 time zones), 2 daily alarms with snooze alarm, and a nifty Mute button if you need it.
G-Shock Baby-G BG169R
G-Shock’s Baby-G series is primarily known as their most compact models, making this watch line best suited not only for women but also kids as well. The Baby-G BG169R model features a pristine all-white color scheme with a polished stainless-steel accent. This gives the BG169R quite a clean aesthetic that is visually appealing. You will notice that the digital display is also protected underneath two bumpers that are located on the top and bottom of the case.
A nifty little design inclusion that we found fun is the animated pixel animal that pops up on the LCD screen whenever you press the Night Light button. While this does not add anything to the overall functionality of the watch, it is a little treat for the kids. The Baby G BG169R-7A features a 42mm diameter resin case, making it the smallest G-Shock watch series in circulation today. It comes with all the signature G-Shock features with the addition of memory storage that you can use to save 25 names and phone numbers.
G-Shock Baby-G BGA110-7B
Compact, durable, easy-on-the-eyes, and multi-functional. These are the words that best describe what the Baby-G BGA110-7B brings to the table. The elegant and sophisticated design of this Baby-G model certainly makes it the most mature looking timepiece in this collection. It also takes a different approach in its timekeeping as it fuses analog-digital displays with a chronograph design. There are three digital sub-dials that shows day, date, and an alarm countdown timer.
This is a sports/fitness watch and will surely be quite compatible with highly active kids who are into sports. This watch also comes with a World Time that displays around 29 time zones from 48 cities. Its stopwatch and countdown timers will offer excellent convenience in regards to keeping track of your record in sports. While a bit rigid, the 39.8mm diameter resin case is incredibly lightweight while still keeping that signature G-Shock toughness.
G-Shock Baby-G BA110-7A1CR
Looking for something with a more luxurious appeal? This Baby-G BA110-7A1CR will certainly appeal to kids that dress to impress.

It also provides a decent 100-meter water resistance rating which means it is suitable for most recreational water activities.
G-Shock Baby-G BGA-200-3EDR
Modern, chic, and tough – the Baby-G BGA-200-3EDR is probably the coolest looking entry on this list. It features a modern minimalist square resin case that measures only 37mm in diameter. It comes in a mint green color tone that is quite charming and playful. The bold colors that make up this Baby-G watch is definitely designed to grab everyone’s attention.

The white 43mm diameter resin case helps contain the explosion of color that the dial delivers.
This is also a hybrid watch that combines analog and digital displays. The display is also equipped with an LED backlight which is highly welcome since the dial does tend to be a bit difficult to read in low-light environments.
