New Casio G-Shock Watches Come With Bluetooth And Other Features

new-gshocksI guess you can more or less classify Casio’s G-Shock range of timepieces to be an enduring symbol of tough timekeeping – and if you happen to live a rough and tumble lifestyle outside of the usual nine to five job, then a G-Shock watch would make for the ideal companion around your wrist without breaking into a sweat each time you end up in an adrenaline pumping situation. Earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas, Casio showed off a G-Shock watch with Bluetooth connectivity (model number GB-5600A) that can receive calls as well as text-message notifications, accompanied by audio and vibration to boot. Not only that, it will also be able to enjoy automatic time updates from an iPhone.

Well, a couple more G-Shock watches has been announced by Casio, and they would be the GB-6900B and GB-X6900B models, sporting Bluetooth 4.0 LE connectivity that will also see the previous mentioned features extended to cater for select Android-powered smartphones. These two new models will boast of music remote control, as well as the ability to set alarms and timers from Casio’s special companion smartphone app. Both the GB-6900B and GB-X6900B are tipped to arrive in Japan this coming September 21st for approximately $187 and $208, respectively, after conversion.
