7. Casio Digital Watch GBX6900


We’re still waiting for the true iWatch that many, including me, expected by now. While Samsung has pre-empted Apple with its Galaxy Gear watch, it’s huge, clumsy, not very useful and limited to using with a few Samsung phones. Casio’s latest second-generation G-Shock Digital Watch GBX6900 Bluetooth watch is a better bet. It connects with most smartphones to control the music player and display alerts such as incoming email. The smartphone can be used to set many of a watch’s functions as well, such as the alarm, countdown timer and world time. ($200)
