Casio G-Shock iPhone-Connected Watch Announced
Casio’s G-Shock is a new smart watch that connects with your iPhone and alerts you of incoming notifications, help you in finding your misplace phone, and more. It uses the new standard Bluetooth 4.0 to keep in link with your iPhone. This watch is really not that much different from other smart watches like Pebble and Starta in terms of features.
As of yet, it can do only three basic things,
- Notify you about incoming mail or calls.
- Help you find your iPhone if you misplace it by making your iPhone play an alarm.
- Sync with the Clock app automatically.
You won’t need to worry about the battery though as the battery life is pretty decent on this watch, as it can last for 2 years even if it stays connected to your iPhone for up-to 12 hours a day.
The Casio G-Shock retails for a hefty $180 and is compatible with iPhone 4S as well as the new iPhone 5.
