Casio America has launched a G-Shock Bluetooth Low Energy Smart Watch. The GB6900AA collection provides Bluetooth time sync, alerts for incoming calls and emails, in addition to a Find Me function in which alarm and vibration functions on an iPhone can be activated using the buttons of the watch. The Bluetooth G-Shock will also provide a notification if your phone is out of range (useful if you keep misplacing phones).
The new watch powers wireless communication functions with a single, ordinary button-cell battery, and without consuming any more battery life than a conventional wristwatch. Battery life is estimated at approximately two years, assuming that the Bluetooth wireless communication function is used for 12 hours per day.
The GB6900AA collection is available in four colors, black GB6900AA-1, gray blue GB6900AA-2, brown GB6900AA-5 and white GB6900AA-7. All models include shock and 200M water resistance, world time (35 time zones / 100 cities + UTC), LED super illuminator, five daily alarms (beep or vibrate), 1/100th second stopwatch (24H), countdown timer (24H, beep or vibrate), 12/24hr formats, mute function and a 2-year battery (12H of use per day).
The GB6900AA collection will retail for $180.
