    G-Shock Connected ! What is your experience so far ?

    With a rating of 2.6 on 5 (for the Android version) this application is not flawless.

    Tonight my B5000 was refusing to find my phone and then could not connect.
    After de-pairing the watch and de-installing the app it now works again.
    But I have been fumbling for 15 minutes (starting the phone again for example) before being able to repair the connection.

    Also for the GPS triggering (like for the GPW2000, the B5000 or even the new Rangeman) there is no way to use our data out of the app: meaning no sharing with other apps like Maps, Citymapper or anything to justify the use of it.

    I think Casio should work more on the usability and less on the "look" of it. G-Shock are tool watches and need an application with the same purpose.

    So what is your experience with the G-Shock Connected App ?

    So far works well with GMW B5000 but 3D maps for Rangeman do not. They did work some time ago though. And yes, no maps sharing at all. Far from perfect but I hope Casio will work it out soon.

    As I believe some Casio's people are reading F17, let's use this thread to communicate.

    Some months ago I used the edifice app, the first note is Casio must develop one app to support all brands and models, and comparing with Garmin app, we are some levels below
    The best Casio G-Shock is the next one...

    My first connected G-Shock was a GBX6900. Enjoyed its features, but the constant connecting/disconnecting was a deal-breaker. More recently my GPW2000 has underwhelmed me with its connected functionality. Didn't expect music control, but phone finder would have been nice. I agree Casio seems to spend more effort on presentation than function.

    it works ok on my GBA800, MTG-B1000 and GPR-B1000, except Rangeman 3D issue.

    I give 2 out of 5 stars. Phone rarely syncs 4x/day successfully. GPS would be better methinks.

    Numbers of Bluetooth connections per day should be user defined or selectable.

    It's working great for me so far. I have the gmw-b5000 and the gw-b5600 both paired to the same phone. Syncing works fine and I haven't experienced any premature dropouts.

    Only thing I hope casio could do would be to optimise the app. It has quite high usage on the battery. Also it would be nice to have notifications only when the watch is connected instead of showing "waiting for connection" all the time.

    The app won't work at all in Android 8+ devices, tried on 3 different phones, won't work.

    I tried the app in an iPhone 6S and it worked but the functionality was unreliable, the watch failed to connect with the app most times. I would give this app a 2 if it worked on Android 8+ since it does not I give it a 0 rating, don't recommend it at all.
