Some of the regular features that you normally see on G-Shock watches are present: world time, alarms, full auto calendar, 12/24 hour time, countdown timer, backlight, and extreme water and shock resistance. The special smart phone features enabled by the “Low Energy Bluetooth” technology are the time that the phone is set to can be obtained by the watch allowing you to adjust to it, the phone will alert of an incoming call or e-mail, and the user can mute the phone:s vibration by tapping on the watch’s crystal.

The announcement, however, does not indicate with which smart phones the GB-6900 watches will be compatible. It is not clear how the prospective end-users of this expensive, specialized product will procure and implement it – Casio’s normal sales channels are not service-oriented phone vendors. Perhaps someone from Casio could leave a comment below to let us know which phone to buy to properly accessorize our cool new Bluetooth G-Shocks.
