The Bluetooth series iPhone is a gimmick or practical function?
In fact, heard the watch series smartphone suggests that many people contains a small series of the first question is: we have at any time using a mobile phone, also need to remind you through the watches? Faced with this seemingly somewhat superfluous, small the actual trial, slightly different impression.
However, prior to use, here are a few caveats must first remind. The first is the GB-6900 / GB-5600 only the corresponding iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, mobile phone firmware supports iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 6.1. This is the GB-6900 / GB-5600 is to communicate through Bluetooth v4.0 LE, iPhone 4 models not using Bluetooth V4.0 natural pair. Another iPhone before using the first G-SHOCK + APP , and paired set only after the various prompts.
▲ GB-6900 / GB-5600 can only correspond to the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S paired use. iPhone download first G-SHOCK + App , select the “Traditional Chinese” in the “General” settings.
▲ watch first press the button in the upper right corner two seconds, start the Bluetooth function, the surface of the Bluetooth icon will appear at the top right.
▲ Bluetooth products, the iPhone first keep GB-6900 conducted paired, press the “Find G-SHOCK” will find the watch, and then enter the number on the watch to be paired.
The ▲ pairing watch cute icon to display the pairing is in progress.
▲ next watch will display the matching digital 6-digit input on the phone to complete the pairing.
The ▲ pairing is complete, the G-SHOCK + App is connected. The same time in the “Settings” option “Notice”, “Phone Find the time to adjust.
Paired with the phone after the first into the “Notifications” menu to set options can be set here includes incoming call alert “,” mail “, as well as the three social networking sites Facebook, Twitter, Weibo notification feature, these features are receive new content via the G-SHOCK + APP set up the account, and sent to the GB-6900 notification action. After the notice is turned on, as long as the receipt of new Facebook friends to invite new message will notify message, notice, or Twitter.
Although we have often staring at the phone, but the actual use of small or a little useful. Xiao Bian walk in the evening with their phones into the bag, possibly because the move plus the sound of the busy road, it is easy to miss calls and other messages. This time the GB-6900 directly to the vibration and sound prompted with a screen display incoming call or e-mail, not afraid to miss the girlfriend or the boss’s phone.
▲ “Notifications” option, including bootable “Incoming call alert”, “mail” notification, as well the three social networking sites Facebook, Twitter, Weibo new message notification.
▲ When the phone call, the GB-6900 colleagues with vibration, sound, screen displays an incoming call. But unfortunately can not display the caller’s name and telephone.
▲ “mail” notification will also be prompted to vibration and sound the email name of the letter, this time can be displayed.
Again is small Another interesting feature of the phone looking for “, when people get older, often forget where to put the phone. If the phone is in Bluetooth communication range can be through the GB-6900 easy to call, just press the button for two seconds in the lower right corner will start the phone looking for “, will be issued even if the phone is adjusted to mute or voice prompts, allowing users to quickly find phone location, then pat the watch twice (original manual pat, you can turn off this feature, however small the actual use to be slapped twice to turn off XD).
Find “phone, presumably more people have the following doubts: if the phone more than 10 meters watch no connection, what to look for? Of course, GB-6900 is also a “connection interrupt prompts” between each wireless link is interrupted, the phone will prompt the user to pay attention to vibration, indeed often save a small series of amnesia.
▲ “Mobile Find feature can watch calling the phone audible.
▲ GFB-6900 will start button for two seconds at the lower right corner of the phone looking for “pat twice to close the function.
“Time to adjust” function with Radio Clock unbeatable. Even if the accuracy of the quartz electronic watch much higher than the mechanical watch CASIO G-SHOCK watches of error is plus or minus 15 seconds per month, so the table in Japan were launched when the “waves” watch automatic calibration time. Although the United States, Europe, Japan, China, a total of six radio towers, the north and south-central barely received the radio tower signals in Japan and China, but for the ground demanding, not everyone can when the use of radio-controlled function.
This feature smartphone through network and base station automatic error correction, this feature has also become the basis for GB-6900 / GB-5600 calibration; Another advantage if you go to a foreign country a different time zone, as long as phone automatically change time zones, the watch will be synchronized to the time zone. G-SHOCK + app can open the time automatically update “option, or manually select the Send Time Information”, you can helper table automatic error correction. Using the transmission time information “, the watch also displays the ongoing school.
▲ “time adjustment” allows the watch to read the time in school.
▲ time data is manually press the “Send”, watch the AT words, about half a minute will finish the school.
Power Performance: original 2 years
As for a long time to use the Bluetooth function, whether it will make power consumption to increase? CASIO does not use solar energy, the old gods in use CR2032 button-type battery. According to official data, the battery life has been a day using mobile devices to link to 12 hours, about 2 years (generally G-SHOCK table models with a CR2032 button-type battery life is about 3 years), so power consumption performance is not what we imagine so serious. Xiao Bian naturally can not testify to this function (unless the two years before they would like to see this test report), but heavy users 24 hours a day connection, should be able to use the electricity for more than 1 year.
GB-6900 / GB-5600 power saving tips also includes a power-saving mode automatically link to the phone functions. When the the watch win to keep still for a period of time, the watch will enter the power saving mode, disable the action link communication function; when the watch movement is detected, it will again automatically re-connect to the phone.
