For as many smartphones and tablets as there are to see at the Consumer Electronics Show, there are even more accessories designed for use with these gadgets. We just took a look at one of them, RCA’s new wireless speaker dock, and now we have a new smartwatch to investigate, Casio’s G-Shock GB6900.

The GB6900 connects over Bluetooth 4.0 to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, and like most Bluetooth watches, it will alerting you of incoming calls, showing you who’s calling. It keeps synced-up to your phone, so you can forget about manually setting the time, and its Bluetooth connection can even help you track down your iPhone when you lose it (so long as it’s still nearby). You can even extend that tracking to warn you if the phone goes out of range.

Sure, this doesn’t deliver near the level of functionality you’d get with a product like the Pebble, but at the same time, you might want something that looks and feels more like a traditional wristwatch.
