    I am planing to buy this watch and would like to know what apps are you using, what are their strengths and weaknesses?
    Heard a lot of bad stories about the G-shock connected app but also news that the newest version should be all right.
    What is the difference between G-shock connected and G-shock +?
    Any insight much appreciated 🤔

    I thought it only works on G shock connected.

    You might be right if it comes to apps from Casio.
    Attached is a screenshot from app shop . Only G-shock connected has the GW-B5600 listed in watch compatibility.
    Are there any other apps people are using?

    Each of those apps you mentioned work with different models. Connected works with yours.

    As far as I know there are no non-Casio apps which work with their watches.

    Correct! The watch would not connect to an other app.

    I’ve read of people having issues with Connected but I’ve had no problems with it (touch wood)

    It depends what you mean by "issues". I have a Rangebeast and a GW-b5600. G-Shock Connected works for me with both, a ver rare crash, but mostly solid. My main issues with it are with the Rangebeast, and they are mostly related to how absurdly limiting the app is. The Rangebeast is capable of so much but the app just totally ties it's hands.

    The Android 9 issues have been sorted thanks to the folks on this board who reported the issue to Casio. There is a separate thread on it in case you're interested.

    The earlier Bluetooth models could be connected to an app called Bluewatcher which additionally extended the functionality of the watch (better notifications, remote control for camera etc.).
