There are some pretty darn feature-rich watches on the market today – even the new and emerging “smart watches” like the Samsung Gear 2. Then there are the high-end or classically designed watches – the Bausele are beautiful – but when you combine the popularity of the Casio G-Shock range of watches, plus the smarts of Bluetooth and you get what I think is a genuine smart-watch.
The G-Shock with Bluetooth will buzz when you get calls, emails, social media alerts as well as alerts when you leave your phone behind. But what took the latest model over the edge was the music player integration – so you can now move through your playlist without even touching your phone.
It’s that combination of popular and functional which comes with a great Casio G-Shock, and the smarts of Bluetooth and music control that make this an EFTM BEST for 2014.
