English term or phrase: G-SHOCK MOVE
The G-SHOCK MOVE app is a companion smartphone app for an upcoming series of Casio
sports watches.
The app aims to help watch owners train in various sports: runs recorded on the watch are
transferred to the app, where users can view maps and various statistics about past runs,
set monthly running goals, receive coaching advice, and more. A similar entry in this market
would be Garmin Connect.
The app also serves as the main way to configure the watches: While the watches do have a
minimal UI, it is assumed that most users will change watch settings by means of the app.


In the context of localizing this app into Arabic, I am looking for suggestions for a name for the app other than
جي شوك موف or حركة جي شوك
Suggestions about an attractive Arabic name for the localized app are appreciated.....
The first part of the term "G-SHOCK جي-شوك" should be kept....

G-Shock دقات وخطوات
Explanation:

I think this is the best way to put it.
the word دقات is used in Arabic for both of clock ticks and heartbeats.

خطوات literally means footsteps; it is used here to indicate moving in a pursuit of a healthy lifestyle. Such a sense is even further resonated with the word دقات in the sense of "heartbeats".

I prefer to start with دقات to avoid any confusion with the figurative meaning of "steps" lest the reader- from the first look- should think of خطوات as "steps" of doing something. On the other hand, دقات keeps the reader on G Shock track which is "watches" and then it adds the further value in the App which is خطوات that will be understood as moving/ footsteps.
