Casio G-Shock watch brings iPhone connectivity to your wrist
There is a watch for that: The Casio G-Shock GB6900AA. Using Bluetooth 4.0, it syncs to your iPhone and will provide email, phone call, and calendar notifications. It is arguably not as sophisticated as some other smartphone-linking watches, but the G-Shock does make efficient use of its power, which comes from a traditional button-cell CR2032 battery.
Aside from the traditional “watch” features, the G-Shock can be calibrated to vibrate on notifications which can then be silenced simply by double-tapping on the screen of the watch. The watch also serves as a tether to alert you if it should lose a connection and fall out of range of your iPhone. The G-Shock Bluetooth retails for $180.00, is available in four colors, black, brown, white and silver/blue, and is compatible with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S.

A watch that syncs up with the iPhone? Shut up and take my money.

What the problem of taking the phone out from the pocket. iPhone is such small phone with a tiny screen. Besides i am sure you want to reply to a twitter or sms still end up taking out the phone.

You should probably wait for something more like the Sony Smartwatch for iOS. That would be a lot better than this thing.

i hope the in cell battery stands its time, because i dont wanna wear any of those motoactv watches and look like a complete nerd. a bluetooth watch from a reputed manufacturer is kinda cool.

For your kind information Motoactv is not just watch, its athlete watch. Casio can't do what it does.
Also it syncs with Mobile phones too & lot more.

Oh I love my G shock watches! The color choices suck but its a resonable price for the features it offers IMO!
