Casio G-SHOCK: Let’s you look impatient while keeping tabs on your smartphone activity
The G-SHOCK is hardly the first watch to connect to a smartphone, but with Bluetooth 4.0 it will be able to last up to 2 years, even with phone monitoring used 12 hours a day. The phone will be released in Japan in March, after being delayed by the flooding in Thailand. The price will be 18K Yen (U.S. $231).
No word yet on when we might see one of these devices in North America or Europe, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a similar product get a wider release sometime in 2012. Anyone out there hoping to be able to pick up one of these geek-chic watches?

First. I can see why this hasn't already been done by Casio

I don't want a watch that monitors my email, texts, and calls; I want a watch that monitors my Google Calendar, shows my next appointment, and plays alerts. Watches should be time centric (at least until d**k Tracy watches really work).

Phonearena censors the shortened Richard? Really?

Yes, please notify me that I am receiving a notification of necessity. Honestly, this is a waste of technology...
