at the first glance, the Casio Bluetooth G-SHOCK Watch (GB6900AA) looks like yet another rugged digital time piece from the Japanese digital watch giant but its model name says otherwise and yes, it is Bluetooth-enabled (v4.0, no less). Casio has incorporated today’s favorite wireless technology into the GB6900AA, allowing it to work with your iPhone 4S/5 to offer you incoming notifications of calls and emails via the watch, synchronizing the time to your iPhone’s and a Phone Finder function that allows iPhone alarm functionality to be activated directly from the watch’s hard buttons and interestingly, this alarm can be dismissed simply but double tapping the watch face. additionally, this Bluetooth connectivity also provide warning notification when your phone is out of the range of the watch, ensuring you will never misplace your phone again. other features include the mandatory shock resistant resin construction with 200-meter (656 feet) water resistance, LED backlight with user-selectable illumination duration, world time for 35 time zones, 1/100-second stopwatch, countdown timer, five alarms, hourly time signal, vibration mode, full auto-calendar and button operation tone on/off. the GB6900AA is juiced by a regular button-cell CR2032 battery that’s good for two years and it has another interesting feature that other watches can only tick in envy: it has a low battery warning, displaying a warning when the battery power drops below a preset level. the Casio Bluetooth G-SHOCK Watch (GB6900AA) collection is available in four colorways: black, gray blue, brown as well as white and retails for $180 a pop.
