    Is a G-Shock G-Smart smartwatch coming in 2021?

    G-Shock, News

    Casio recently released its year-end financial results for fiscal 2018 and also released a document titled “Medium-term management plan” (PDF link) that appears to outline the company’s strategies for the coming years.

    Based on this document, the Japanese fan blog Great G-Shock World wrote a post with the translated title, “G smart! ? Boldly forecast G-SHOCK smart watch scheduled for 2021!” and goes on to say (translated by Google), “As for G Smart, it is possible that it will be a complete smart watch that makes the same feature as Apple Watch, such as linking with a call function or SNS, by taking over the frame function of the watch function. size, secure the size of LCD screen like GPR-B1000 to ensure high visibility, and enhance operability with large buttons. Such a model is expected.”

    From my perspective, Casio should at least take the intermediate step of making models like the GPR-B1000 have firmware that can be upgraded by the user, in order to add features or fix software bugs. This seems like a no-brainer to me.

    It will be welcomed step. Smart watch market is substantial and many people do want fitness/notification features.
    Their current efforts been too huge to be true.
    We do see a lot of rangebeasts but it not for everybody.
    WS line was again too big and lacked heart rate monitor.
    Considering increase in BT enabled models things are moving!

    There will probably be one, but for me a watch is a standalone thing and not something that should be paired with your phone to work fully. But that's just me, never seen the real point of getting a smartwatch when I can just look at my phone for other stuff I want on a much bigger easier to read screen

    I can see that happening. If web connected wrist devices end up taking a large market share, it sounds like they want in on the action.

    I think ultimate goal is to build smaller rangebeast. Solar/smart/connected/hopefully fitness oriented.
    Mr Abe was very clear about building BT connected watches and time it takes to make it work.

    It's probably inevitable that it will happen, sooner or later. Would it have the same toughness & WR as a regular G? And would it be solar? Or if not, what would the battery life be? And how reliable would the software be?

    by then the g-shock smartwatch would look like godzilla in comparison to current smartwatches which are slowly getting smaller due to advances in hardware tech.

    I would love to see one, but I respectfully doubt that Casio will be able to pull it off successfully, at least not without some serious outside help. Otherwise they would have already done that long ago.

    I see Casio's strength in design, hardware and finishing and weakness in software.

    A good example for software functionality is Garmin (not even mentioning Apple), which are light years ahead of Casio. I think the only way for Casio to catch up is at the finish line. When others have long moved on to other things, becasue there was nothing more left to improve.
