Casio Commando Uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE With G-Shock Watch
The recently-announced Casio Gz'One Commando 4G LTE can connect with the Casio G-Shock Watch and share information via various Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy profiles. Both the phone and the watch are ruggedized products, making them an ideal pair, and are among the first to use some of these profiles. When connected, the Commando and G-Shock watch can be used to receive call notifications, messages and emails, just as some smartwatches can. The Commando and G-Shock together use the Find Me profile to let G-Shock watch wearers find their Commando if they are in close proximity. Alternately, the Phone Alert Status Profile can be used to receive alerts if the G-Shock watch wearer wanders too far from their Commando. The Commando and G-Shock watch can also offer alerts when there's a sudden change in atmospheric pressure, which could predict a change in the weather. The Commando goes on sale at Verizon Wireless stores June 27 for $99.99 after $50 mail-in rebate.
Casio updates its rugged Commando smartphone with a better radio, larger screen, and a more modern version of Android. Together, they make it a much better device than the original.
