Casio has today unveiled a new watch with SoundHound compatibility, dubbed the Casio GBA-400 G-Shock it has been fitted with a high contrast digital display, alongside improved Bluetooth connectivity that offers a range of up to 30 meters.
“CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’.”
“Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up”.
The watch also features a twist dial that will allow the user to control music playback that is offered via the G-SHOCK and G’MIX companion apps that are now available on various smartphones.
The watch will also be able to show the title of the song on the watch’s screen during playback.
The Casio GBA-400 G-Shock watch will be available from September 19th, 2014 when it will be priced at around $230.
