    How long can the watch go on a single battery change and without Bluetooth?

    I can not say that yet. The GD-350 with Vibe alarm (without Bluetooth) and the CR2032 battery (GB-6900 has the same battery) will specify 5 years of Casio.

    Thanks for that, I thought I'd read it somewhere.

    Good to know.

    Anyway I don't think I can stay with the same watch that long so it's OK for me.

    WHERE DID THEY ALL GO?

    I'm searching ebay, Amazon, Google with no luck for the GB-6900B. They were on Amazon just a couple weeks ago for ~$135 and now there gone!

    Anybody know what's up?

    In Germany are still available. The GB-6900B is from 2013, maybe there are used up the stocks.

    I noticed the same thing a few weeks ago. The GB-5600B and GB-6900B are either out of stock or with higher prices. Though there are still some GB-X6900B for grab with reasonable prices. My guess is the supply of these watches are finally getting depleted. They were released around Nov. 2013, so it's been 4 full years and Casio's not making more of them.

    I guess that Casio has lost the war to smart watches from competitors.

    Well, these Bluetooth "smart" Gs were never that popular as evidenced by the discussions in this thread and in other threads. I appreciate the spike of interest for them lately, as they are finally taking notice how great they are functionally.

    I hope Casio will do better with the Rangeman II, GPS smartwatch next year. Unfortunately, that one's priced out of reach at $800 USD for us "average Joes". What I hope to see is: Casio to make some 3-Way Sync (Bluetooth, Multi-Band 6 and GPS) digital G-Shocks in lower price range next year. But, that could be just a pipe dream...
