Casio launches Bluetooth enabled watch


At times it could get tough to decide what is the best gift to give someone for the holidays, but here is something which is a very unique gift idea. Electronics giant Casio has unveiled its new G-Shock wristwatch which has been built on Bluetooth and can also talk to an iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S.

The watch runs on a regular button cell and this is mostly due to its low-energy design. The best part is that the watch can go two years between changes of battery, with the assumption that the Bluetooth function is used for about 12 hours per day.

The new watch is known as the GB6900AA and is available in four colors – black, gray blue, brown and white. The device has 200 m water resistance, Bluetooth time Sync, alerts for incoming calls and emails.

The device also has a ‘Find Me’ function, in which the alarm and vibration functions on an iPhone can be activated using the buttons of the watch. Automatic time zone correction and other regular digital watch functions including a stopwatch and countdown timer are also included. The watch will be available at $180 which is quite reasonable considering the features offered by the company.
