The Japanese company Casio, known for its calculators and wrist watches, today announced the first watches with Bluetooth LE (low energy) on board, a characteristic which makes it compatible with mobile phones Bluetooth 4.0 as the iPhone 4S.
The G-Shock GB-6900 can synchronize current time and display paired phones for incoming calls names or numbers, emails and text messages on your screen. Users can also change the phone to vibrate mode without touching them.
LE Bluetooth consumes much less energy than regular Bluetooth with Casio indicating that a standard CR2032 battery lasts two years. The clock must be compatible with the iPhone 4S, as well as upcoming LTE phones Android NEC N-04D and PP N-01D.
The arrival of this watch has been delayed until mid-March due to floods in Thailand. Its price is about $ 231.
