Casio’s new GB-6900B and larger X6900B shock-resistant watches take the classic G-Shock design and stuff in Bluetooth 4.0 low energy tech to connect to your smartphone.
The paired smartphone and the watch can connect to and order each other around, meaning you can control your handset’s music player from the watch, or you can adjust settings on your watch directly from your phone, making changing time zones a pinch.
On the watch itself, you’ll find email and call notifications.You can also use your phone to set an alarm, world times and countdown timers on your watch through a companion app.You’ll be able to use the watches with an iPhone 5 or 4S running iOS 6.0 or higher, or the Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2.2. As Android 4.3 includes support for Bluetooth low energy as standard however, these watches could work with many more Google devices in the future.
