Casio has launched a new rugged G-Shock watch which has been specifically designed to link to your iPhone smartphone, using the low energy Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity technology.
Once you have loaded the Casio iOS application on to your iPhone and linked the Casio G-Shock watch to your smartphone, you can then benefit from alerts for incoming calls and emails, as well as use the handy Find Me function.
The G-Shock Find Me function activates the alarm/vibration on your iPhone by simply pressing buttons on your Casio watch, enabling you to find your misplaced iPhone with ease.
Watch the videos below to learn more about the Casio G-Shock iPhone linking watch and see it in action. Casio explains a little about the power consumption of the watch using Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity with your iPhone.
“Taking advantage of the low power consumption of BLE, 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. Users can wear it every day just like they normally do, without the hassle of recharging or replacing a battery. Battery life is estimated at approximately two years, assuming that the Bluetooth wireless communication function is used for 12 hours per day.”
The G-Shock iPhone linking watch GB6900AA is now available to purchase worldwide for around $180. For more information jump over to the Casio website.
