Casio has announced the release of the G-Shock Bluetooth Low Energy Smart Watch that connects to your iPhone.

The GB6900AA collection provides Bluetooth time sync, alerts for incoming calls and emails, in addition to a Find Me function in which alarm and vibration functions on an iPhone can be activated using the buttons of the watch. To silence the vibration of the alarms, Casio has added a tap function in which the user double taps the face and the alert is automatically dismissed. In addition, the Bluetooth G-Shock will provide a notification when the phone is out of range of the watch, making sure the phone is never misplaced and the watch will automatically adjust itself to the correct time zone by using the time data received through the iPhone.

Taking advantage of the low power consumption of BLE, the new watch powers wireless communication functions with a single, ordinary button-cell battery, and without consuming any more battery life than a conventional wristwatch. Battery life is estimated at approximately two years, assuming that the Bluetooth wireless communication function is used for 12 hours per day.

Pricing and Availability:
The GB6900AA collection is available in four sleek colorways: black GB6900AA-1, gray blue GB6900AA-2, brown GB6900AA-5 and white GB6900AA-7. All models include shock and 200M water resistance, world time (35 time zones / 100 cities + UTC), LED super illuminator, five daily alarms (beep or vibrate), 1/100th second stopwatch (24H), countdown timer (24H, beep or vibrate), 12/24hr formats, mute function and a 2-year battery (12H of use per day).

Available this November, the GB6900AA collection will retail for $180 and will be available at select Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, Tourneau, Independent Jewelers & Fashion Boutiques, and www.gshock.com.

Looks crappy. Good ideas for use, but poorly executed and in a design format fit for a 4-year-old.
