Connecting to iPhone.
Pairing with iPhoneWell, after reading this article, I wanted to test it myself. I had to order this watch via a custom transaction (as it isn’t available on-line here). As I have often contact with someone of that shop and with someone who had demonstrated me his GB-6900AA to me, I thought I was on the safe side. Let's try if I'm smart enough to connect the GB-6900AA to my iPhone. First thing you have to do is instal the G-Shock+ app from the Apple App Store. After installing and opening the app I was advised to watch a YouTube video about how to connect your GB-6900AA. So I tried the step by step “Connect your Bluetooth G-Shock with your iPhone for dummies” video method. If you stop the video in every step and apply the step to your iPhone, it actually works pretty fast. Before I knew it, my iPhone was connected. It proved I had a little more patience and technical insight than the fashion reporter.
Simple test about how strong the Bluetooth signal is.Alerts I actually didn’t expect are those from Facebook, Twitter and Weibo (the Chinese Twitter counterpart). The Facebook notification alerts include Messages, Notifications and Friend Requests. The watch can inform you also about incoming mails from all your e-mail accounts. Actually, in practice, e-mail notifications tend to come often before the mails are downloaded on the Phone itself. Interesting. Apparently new in the latest update is that also the calendar is synchronized with the watch. Notifications are shown with an icon and a text, scrolling twice through the display. Unfortunately, if you missed the text, I haven’t found a way to get the text scrolling again.
The result of losing the link in the video above. Yep, I lost contact at school.In my experience, most of the notifications are for e-mails. I have connected my 4 most important e-mail accounts to the G-Shock+ app. Unfortunately I couldn’t get my school Exchange account not added, but this has probably to do with the way these are set up.
The hardest to catch icon. Got it thanks to Roel in Belgium! SNS is Social Network Service. It's followed by the icon of the Social Network that created this notification or the messenger.
Icons from the "Demo Mode". When Bluetooth not activated press the MODE button for about 3 seconds. It seems some icons have changed with G-SHOCK+ updates.
Ooops, link lost...
Teaser from the EP Stade 3, which has been a free download on Oizo3000.com for a long time. I used a track of this EP for my Phone Finder function. You might recognize the music from this teaser from the video I made for my Rush article.
[Edit: I found on a Taiwanese video a far more easier way to silence your iPhone after you found it, via your watch]Besides the Bluetooth notifications, the GB-6900 is of course also a wristwatch. Besides showing time, it has a 100 city (!) World Time function, 5 Alarms with a Hourly Signal, a 24 hour Stopwatch function and a 24 hour Countdown Timer function on board. The negative display is pretty good visible in darker surroundings, but if you can’t read the display anymore, you can use the backlight function. The backlight comes from two bright LEDs at the bottom of the display, which light up the display nice evenly.
That baby blue lettering (it almost is unnoticeable), would baby pink not be more nice...

Me, my G-Shock GB-6900AA and my father's Day present.
Above display probably appears a few times a day. I haven't found out the frequency the time is synced with the Apple servers. If you see this, the corrected time will appear back in the screen within 35 seconds. I have only seen this screen started automatically once in the 5 days I've been testing it.
