Washington: A Japan-based electronics maker has developed a new smart watch that besides telling the time also delivers email and phone call alerts by synchronising with your cellphone.

The Casio G-Shock GB6900AA Bluetooth Low Energy Smart Watch also includes notifications for basic things like calendar alerts, weather and stock - although you may have to squint to see them on the tiny screen.

According to Mashable, one can silence all of these vibrating notifications by simply double-tapping the watch's screen.

The watch's built-in system also notifies you when your cellphone is out of range.

Even with its smartphone-syncing capabilities, the watch reportedly doesn't consume an exorbitant amount of energy because it runs on a traditional button-cell battery.

Assuming that you use the Bluetooth function for 12 hours per day, the watch's battery could last two-year lifespan.

The watch was launched in Japan earlier this year. It is available for USD 180 in the US.
