Tom Newman clocks in with Mike from Casio, who were demonstrating low-power Bluetooth in a watch. As you might expect, low power drain is highly desirable in a watch as, unlike smartphones, it’s not normal to recharge them every night. Most people would expect a watch to last several years between battery changes and fortunately, Casio expects the battery in the phone to last two years before needing changed.
Low-power Bluetooth is an enhancement to the Bluetooth 4.0 core specification and it’s expected to appear in devices from 2012 onwards. The video shows a couple of different scenarios, such as the watch changing time when your change the time zone in your smartphone.
