Casio Smartwatch

A few years ago, since the arrival of smartphones, wrist watches have become a little less present. They keep your aesthetic function, but for those who want to know the time, simply pull the phone out of your pocket. Some people don’t see the slightest need of a clock — but this could change with the arrival of the smartwatches, who have more functions in addition to time, stopwatch and alarm watches of old.
To enter this market, Casio decided to launch some models of watches that were a bit more smart. But only a little. The company provided us with the Casio G ‘ GBA-400, MIX with Bluetooth connection, for testing. Check out our review.
What is it?
The Casio G ‘ GBA-MIX 400 is a clock with clock face that offers a little more than a clock — in addition to alarm, stopwatch, countdown and world time of 300 cities around the world, it has Bluetooth connection.
To connect it to a mobile phone, you can control the music player by the watch buttons. You can start and stop a song, fast forward and back and even control the volume of the music. You can also set the sound quality and some watch settings, such as alarms, directly from the phone.
The G ‘ MIX promises a battery of two years duration, something impressive for the current smartwatches, which require a new charge at the end of each day, he is also highly resistant to impacts and vibrations and works to even 200 metres underwater — that is, you can dive with him.
The watch is used with two dedicated apps: the G-SHOCK +, which serves to pair the device with your phone and configure some functions, such as alarms and time zones — it’s just set up on the phone and the data are transferred to the Bell, without the need to press and hold buttons to configure new alarms. This application also lets you find lost phones: the function activates an audible alarm on the phone, but since his Bluetooth is turned on.
The second dedicated app takes the same name as the LED watches with a camera, says Homethodology, G ‘ MIX. He serves as a player for him, offering some extras, such as equalizers for each kind of music.
Who’s it for?
An easier question: to whom he is not? The G ‘ MIX is definitely not for those seeking a smartwatch clock. He’s far (far away) to be an Android Wear or even a Pebble. He’s not going to monitor your physical activities or offer any type of notification. Want to know if that email that you were expecting arrived? Want to answer a message on Facebook? Want to know how many calories did you like on a walk? You better take your cell phone, because G MIX won’t know that answer.
The G ‘ MIX is for anyone who wants a watch face and watch functions, but with a little something extra. Or for those who want to control some functions of the phone without having to take it out of your pocket.
Design
The G ‘ MIX is coated with plastic, both at the edges of the viewfinder on the bracelet. He is a good watch, but there are so many information on the screen that he ends up looking like little: in addition to the analog pointers seconds and minutes, there are two LCD displays — one on the bottom, which shows the hours, and one at the top, which shows information such as the date or the music playing at the time.
There is also a physical disk which rotates to show if the Bluetooth is turned on or off, which is one of the coolest clock functions-is also something aesthetic, that could easily be replaced by a light. The G ‘ MIX has five buttons: two press studs on each side, and a swivel to the right.
Using
The watch is comfortable to use. The rubber bracelet is made with folds, which promises to “protect against operating errors with the flick of the wrist and to achieve appropriate weight”; but the material, although drive, seems to be very durable.

The knob on the right side of the device is one of the bigdifferentiators for the clock: it allows you to increase or decrease the volume of the music when the appliance is connected to a mobile phone, by turning the knob up or down respectively.
And that’s when trouble begins: the response of Bluetooth is a bit slow. The volume does not change immediately, sothe more impatient can end without understanding how the sound is gone or be scared with the song reaching themaximum volume suddenly. Also been through times when the Bluetooth disconnected for no reason (and we werepushing the button to skip to the next song made fools).
In addition, more interesting than it is to have a dedicatedapp with specific functions, such as equalizers, is that enough to make someone change a player that‘s used to? The G ‘ MIX does not work with virtually any streaming service. Spotify, Deezer or Radio? No way. It works only with Apple’s Music, to be integrated into the native Music of iOSapp.
Another serious problem that we found was the light. The lighting of the G ‘ MIX was one of the biggest problems I found simply because of her light. The Super Illuminator,as it is called, is a high-brightness LED light which illuminates the display ensuring night visibility. Only the light of G‘ MIX is on top of the viewfinder, not behind him: thus, when illuminated in the dark, all we saw was the light and none of the information, only the pointers.
And you better think twice if you want to use the G ‘ MIX with your Android phone: it is only compatible with a few Samsung appliances (S4, S5 Galaxy and Galaxy Note 3), most smartphones iOS from iPhone 4S.
Is it worth it?
I find myself asking what (or who) this watch will do. After all, more interesting than it is to control the player from the cell by the clock, this is a function that headphones are,quite rightly, for a long time. And if I can control the musicthrough my headphones, without the need to take the phone out of my pocket, I would invest in a watch like this?
If you want a watch that monitors your physical activities and provide the same notifications that a cell phone, as emails, posts or links, G ‘ MIX is definitely not for you. Casio try approaching the major brands of cell phones entering the smartwatches industry that still crawls. The attempt is good, but the chosen functions are not significant enough to put it not even close to the same level that Android Wear, Apple Watch or the Pebble.
Now, if you want a watch that fulfils all the functions of a clock, without the need to carry him to the end of each dayand offering a little more control the music playing on your cell phone maybe the G ‘ MIX is done to you? It is available in Brazil by R$ 940.
