Casio G-Shock GB-6900 Bluetooth watch review

 

In the past year we've seen a flurry of interest in the idea of a connected watch, coming from everyone from established players like Nike and Fossil, to startups like Allerta with its Pebble...

Insane battery life ; Well thought-out Bluetooth functions ; Classic design

Hardly any compatible phones ; Watch's menus are a pain to navigate ; Smartphone app needs more features

The GB-6900 is plenty smart, for a watch

Hands-on: Second screen of sorts as your watch relays smartphone alerts.

Casio G-Shock GB-6900AA

 

Casio has taken a leap into the world of the smart watch with its new Bluetooth range of G-Shock watches. Coupling the company's expertise in building desirable tech-filled time pieces with the email and messaging capabilities of the iPhone, the...

Sturdy build, Find iPhone function, caller alert

Connectivity issues, no Android

Here is the problem with the 6900: it has all the makings of a great smart watch - G-Shock is a great brand and has put together some quality, extremely desirable timepieces - the problem is that this isn't one of them, in terms of looks at least.

When we first saw the first Casio G-Shock Bluetooth-compatible watch - the GB-6900 - there were a couple of things that were different. First, it was connected

There are a few Bluetooth watches available already, with varying levels of usefulness, but Casio's forthcoming attempt is different. For starters, it's

Casio G-Shock GB-6900AA review

 

A watch that links to your iPhone

Great iPhone connectivity ; Very good build quality ; Lots of features ; Decent price

Bulky design ; Need an iPhone ; Do you need it

This is an excellent watch in its own right, but the cool features that Casio has included makes this an even better proposition. This is how you combine old and new technologies.

Casio G-Shock GB6900B smartwatch

 

It seems that every year we're told that smartwatches are the next big thing, but each time the concept seemingly fails to find mainstream success. That hasn't dissuaded companies like Samsung and Sony from trying repeatedly to win over the public, and...

Although the GB-6900B makes some notable improvements over Casio's previous flagship, it's still not as powerful as a "true" smartwatch, such as Samsung's Gear 2. However, the all-important battery life is fantastic. The design of the watch is also...

Casio G-Shock GB-6900 smartwatch

 

The Casio G-Shock GB-6900 may not look much different to any digital timepiece at first glance, but this is a smartwatch, believe it or not. The concept of the smartwatch may have taken its time to develop - and some may even argue that it's still not...

Casio's approach to the concept of a smartwatch is very different from that of Sony and Samsung - the GB-6900 is a watch first, and its Bluetooth connectivity arguably takes a backseat. That has positives and negatives; the GB-6900 offers incredible...

Review: Casio G-Shock GB6900AB

 

We've seen plenty of smartwatches, but often the watch part can seem like an afterthought. Here it's the other way around - Casio took its popular G-Shock range of sports watches, and added Bluetooth connectivity so you can connect it to your iPhone or...

Casio G-Shock GB-6900B Review: Durable, Stylish & Excellent Battery

 

The concept of the smartwatch may have gotten off to a slightly slow start, but with Google set to unleash its Android Wear platform this year, you can expect a sizeable surge of public interest for most of 2014 and beyond. However, it's important to...

Rugged design, Looks great, Battery lasts two years

Compatibility is patchy, Smart functions are limited compared to other watches

The GB-6900B doesn't offer the same degree of connectivity when compared to traditional smartwatches and compatibility leaves a lot to be desired, but the robust casing and two-year battery life could tip the balance for some users
