Casio Bluetooth Low Energy watch showcased at CES
Casio has recently showcased a prototype of the watch equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy Wireless Technology at Casio’s Booth at the CES. Taking advantage of the low power consumption of the new Bluetooth technology, the new watch powers Bluetooth wireless communication functions with its single button-cell battery, the same kind used in small devices and watches. And it does this without losing any battery life compared to conventional wristwatches. The battery life is estimated at approximately two years based on the prototype model, assuming that the Bluetooth wireless communication function is used for 12 hours per day.

The new prototype demonstrates how Casio hopes to expand the ways people use their watches, unlike anything ever seen before, as new applications are developed for smart phones to enable communication between watches through smart phones.

Casio Bluetooth Low Energy watch main features:
+ Wireless communication is powered by the button-cell battery used in small devices and watches
+ Battery life with the communication functions is the same as previously released watches
+ The size of the watch case is a comfortable 53.4 (D) x 44.4 (W) x 12.8 (T) millimeters

Casio Bluetooth Low Energy watch main functions:
+ Accurate time information can be transmitted from a smart phone to the watch to ensure correct time
+ The watch includes an alert signal to notify of incoming calls and e-mail messages sent to the user’s smart phone
+ A smart phone’s ring alerts and vibration can be stopped by tapping the watch
+ Alarm and vibration functions of a smart phone can be activated using a watch button

Casio Bluetooth Low Energy watch measures 53.4 mm x 44.4 mm x 12.8 mm and has a weight of approx. 50g.

Casio aims to produce its first Bluetooth Low Energy Watch this year. Meanwhile, Casio will call for partner companies to develop applications compatible with smart phones and other household devices in such areas as sports, health, home entertainment, security, and communication with family members and friends.
