In June, Casio launched the G-Shock Bluetooth GB-6900 that supports local Android smartphone connection in Japan. However, Casio plans to launch this series on the international market recently. Today the company announced two GB-6900AA and GB-5600AA which support iPhone 4S. This is also the first time that the company supports iPhone products. Two watches are expected to be the first to be released in Japan in October and November. The prices of both models have been announced for $ 230.
The unstoppable boom of mobile technology has made major changes in many industries, and has paid more attention to the integration with mobile devices. A few days ago, the traditional watch maker Citizen announced that it would soon launch a Bluetooth watch. Today, Casio also announced that the G-Shock series will launch a new Bluetooth-enabled G-Shock GB-6900AA. The new G-Shock watch is not complicated to add functions. It uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to the iPhone 4S. Through the corresponding app on the iPhone, the watch can remind missed calls and alarms. The watch also adds a vibration function to tell users whether the iPhone is carried. In addition, the watch can automatically adjust the time with the iPhone. The new G-Shock is available in five colors and is expected to land in Japan in October for about $ 230.
