GB-6900 at Baselworld 2012. Credits to WUS member TorrentMT from Switzerland.As soon as I heard of a Bluetooth model coming out, I was curious. The first rumors were heard at the end of the summer of 2011. It was expected to be released at the end of 2011, but the floods in Thailand seem to have delayed the production. The GB-6900 was presented at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) early January 2012 in Las Vegas. Also was this watch shown in March 2012 at Baselworld 2012, probably the most important watch show in the world.
Higuchi-inc, Oita, Japan) if the red model was already available. He responded to me that the red version was very rare and it might be possible he cold not get it. Well, if Katsu-san writes me this, it must be real limited, as he helped me with other limited models in the past. For instance he was only able to get only one DW-5025 Team Tough version, 2008. I was frankly a bit surprised the red version was limited like this. This might also be the case with the white model. On the other hand, the demand of this model is probably not very high, as it is at the moment only available for a handful of Medias smart phones (Medias is a trademark by NEC Casio Mobile, a joint venture between NEC, Casio and Hitatchi). I hope the GB-6900 will work with other brand phones too, as NEC is not active on the European market.
ittle research on internet for information about this watch would have let you know much more and you will find answers of many of your questions (viva Google Translate!). For the amount of technology housed in this watch, I must say the price of this G-Shock is very fair. If I’m informed right, this model is scheduled for the US and Europe this summer. I guess that the selection of smartphones working with this watch will be expanded. Prices should be around €180/$180. Probably then the red and white version will be easier to get also.
