Smallest G Shock in the world (but still mighty)!

Today I want to show off the world's smallest (and still very capable) member of the G Shock family, the Baby G BGD-5650 and show you all some size comparisons. This is the first G I've encountered that falls into the range of normal, everyday watches, that will fit most people (40mm or less). It looks like a G Shock, but feels like a small retro-sized digital on the wrist.

Casio has never packed so much functionality into such a small watch while maintaining their famous shock resistance and impressive WR. This is truly a major accomplishment for Casio in their quest for smaller, slimmer G Shocks, and one I think deserves to be celebrated!

Above you can see the BGD-5650 next to a classic square G (GWB5600BC), an F91w, a 36mm field watch, and a 38mm diver (both from Vaer). I've also included a side shot so you can see just how thin the profile is.

If you have wrists that are 6" or smaller, this is the G Shock you've been looking for.

Specs and notes for this watch:

  • JDM model

  • 38mm diameter

  • 42mm lug to lug

  • 11mm thick

  • 100m WR

  • All the features of the GWM-5610 module, including Tough Solar and Multi-band 6, but excluding the auto backlight.

  • The strap is appropriately sized for the watch, so if you have a small wrist, there's no leftover strap tongue hanging out like your other Gs

  • Conversely if your wrist is large, this likely wouldn't fit you on the stock strap.

  • Comes in white, blue, pink, black, brown, and black with negative display

I love G_Shocks but most are way too large for my smaller wrist, the DW5600E is a good size for me, this one of yours looks like another option, thanks for sharing

·

I want one

I have no need for it but man that looks SO GOOD

·

I’m really crushing on my GWM5610U but now that you mention it…

I have a 5600 equivalent square (pictured above) and it just barely, technically fits my wrist. Great watch, but on the large side for me. I always know I'm wearing it. This Baby G just melts away and I forget I have it on.

Another good option for a smaller square is the Baby G BGD-5000. It has tough solar, mulitband, etc, but jumps up to 200m WR and comes in at 40mm in diameter. It's a perfect midpoint between this tiny G and the standard square.

I didn't need it either! 😂 But, it does bridge the gap between an everyday digital with few functions (F91w for example) and a feature packed G that's also a thicc boi. Which is exactly what I wanted.

I have small field watches and divers that are very robust, but my non-G Shock digitals are mostly acrylic crystal, splash resistant affairs. G Shock toughness in a package this small is a game changer.

I agree it ticks many, many boxes. I’ve been on the fence about G-Shocks mostly for size. I have a CasiOak that’s right on the edge. This is a nice option.

Given it’s JDM, where did you get it?

ALSO: nice write-up! The comparison pics are excellent for setting the perspective. Thanks for going to the trouble! 👏🏻

I'm moving and I wanted it for the trip (it replaced two other watches in my travel box). I needed fast delivery to get to me before then, so I ordered mine from Amazon. Set me back around $130. But this and a whole range of JDM Baby Gs are available on Sakura Watches website for a little less money and a longer wait.

There is also the BGD-5000 which measures 40mm in diameter with the same module and more water resistance. Size wise, it sits between the classic square and this tiny G.

Also, I know that Casio already offers smaller Casioaks (S) series, but I saw a JDM Mother's Day release that's even smaller than that and is under the Baby G line. I think it had a P in the ref number. Pink only for now but if it does well in Japan we'll likely see more colors soon.

👀 I won't tell if you don't 🤫

I like it a lot, finding the right size for yourself is challenging, most are great but one comes along and it's perfect. I like the lack of writing on the dial, or at least less of it, Casio got it right with this one.

The Baby-G line has some real bangers (especially in Japan) that you can tell they put a lot of creative thought into, not just with the cases but the LCD displays too. But I wish they'd rename the line to Mini-G, or maybe Lowkey-G.

A-side-of-G?
