Japan’s Casio is getting ready to launch new G-Shock wristwatches that allow users to control their smartphones via Bluetooth 4.0. Of course, this isn’t a new concept – for example, Sony already has watches which can interact with your Android smartphone.
According to The Korea Herald, Casio’s upcoming wristwatches will let you check incoming calls, emails, or texts. Moreover, a special button on the watch will trigger an alarm on your smartphone, this way allowing you to locate it in case it’s been misplaced.

It’s not clear if the new Casio watches will be able to control just Casio-made smartphones, or devices made by other manufacturers, too. But we’ll find out more about this in October, when the first batch of new smartphone-friendly watches will be released.
