Casio set to release a Bluetooth-enabled version of the G-Shock STB-1000 smartwatch
So, how will Bluetooth connectivity exactly fit with the updated G-Shock STB-1000 sports watch?
Well, the wearable will receive the ability to show some vital notifications from your iPhone, such as incoming calls, texts and emails. In addition, the user will be able to control the music player on the paired device via the buttons on the smartwatch. The G-Shock STB-1000 will also display relevant data from one of the supported fitness apps. At first, the watch will work with Abvio's Runmeter GPS, Walkmeter GPS, Cyclemeter GPS and Wahoo's Fitness apps, but Casio is determined to introduce more as soon the watch gets released. What's more, thanks to the Casio Watch+ app, users will be able to either configure various settings of the watch straight from their iPhone or even locate their smartphone thanks to the Phone Finder feature.
Unlike similar wearable wristbands and smartwatches, the battery of the G-Shock STB-1000 is said to last more than 2 years. Another perk, which sets Casio's upcoming watch apart from the competition, is the 100-meter water resistance. Beat that, Pebble!
