The Clock With Connection-To The Smartphone
A lucky-it is a watch. No touchscreen monster. The Casio Edifice EQB-500 differs pleasantly from the SmartWatch, because instead of the display, this watch has real pointer, a crown and a few pushers.
Thus the clock goes through at first glance as an ordinary timepiece. Only one handle to eight watch has not only a green ring, but also the Bluetooth icon. In fact, the EQB-500 can take over the “Blue Tooth” connection with an iOS or Android smartphone. The free app is each from the App Store and the Google Play Store.
But first, the clock itself: The distinctive case and the bracelet are made of solid stainless steel. This makes the watch durable, resistant and suitable for attitude from Casio. Sports included – Allows almost anything goes. Also swimming and diving, because the EQB-500 is waterproof to depths of 100 meters or 10 ATM.Ein Another feature which can be the clock to a really smart feature.
The dial is classically dyed in black-anthracite, with bold block indices and luminous facilities on leaf and pointers. The pointer can thus be easily read even in the dark, the luminous indexes could be somewhat larger. The crown is screwed and works electronically – the pointers thus move out of sync to the crown rotation. Nevertheless, everything can be very good use, but the thread is working smoothly. Time and all essential functions also can be programmed via the crown, the smartphone is not absolutely necessary to change the time or world time soon.
The most convenient is the setting of the clock via the smartphone app. First, watch and phone be paired, the Bluetooth technology of the watch is oriented so that the power consumption is low. In the App-use the convenient features for frequent flyers come into play: With the Casio + app handy features on offer. So it turns on a button, the time to make, according to the time zone in which the mobile phone is.A second time zone can be set on a separate subdial. It’s quick and easy, as soon as the phone you start after landing and the internal clock adjusts the Casio can be customized. The period between landing and exit fit for more than ample.
If you like it more easily, in front of the departure time at the destination as a second time zone. can a key combination on the clock then be changed – the home time is displayed on the small dial, while the destination is shown as a current whereabouts of the main pointers.
The Casio Edifice is of course also the current weekday with a pointer to, as the date. The even classically by a date wheel, which can be seen in a window between four and five o’clock. But smart would not equal smart, if this disk would not have its own drive which respects the different lengths of months. Thus any laborious adjusting work is already done. An analog chronograph function is also on board. A special feature is the speed measurement, is at the beginning entered the distance from the app, and then pressed the stopwatch at the start and at the destination is reached. As a result, the clock displays the average speed. Also an alarm function is integrated, which reminds you of appointments or terminates the short office sofa.
In a smart watch one wonders fast as long as the battery lasts. Proud owner of a Apple Watch know the derisive question this fact – shows the touch pm but already the evening at 22 o’clock usually the desire to, to obtain a power source. That can not happen with the Casio Edifice: The Bluetooth smartwatch has its own power supply with the proven solar technology from Casio. About the dial, the clock starts sufficient light for a solar cell. Interesting: The EQB-500 also regulates the power consumption itself. At night, for example, the clock goes into a sleep mode after a long storage time on the shelf Also the motion work turns off.
To be even smarter, the watch is an indicator of received and unread messages. The function of this kind is glorious: It is, unlike Apple’s smartwatch, not forced to read the message right at the wrist. The information that something has arrived, sufficient. To use the function, however, the e-mail mailbox in the Casio + app must be applied.
Especially handy for forgetful people is the Phone Finder. By pressing a button on the watch, the smartphone plays a tone – unless it is in range of Bluetooth connection-and the lost device is locatable.
The housing is made entirely of steel, meticulously crafted and high quality.Only the cross Schauben holding the massive ground, look a bit like Bauhaus.The base is provided with a ground, all engravings in the elucidation of the properties and use are properly executed. No sharp edge disturbs the watch wearer!
The wristband is comfortable and has solid links. The individual steel elements are matted and polished and perfectly shaped consuming. The only downer: The metal clasp falls in value significantly. Klapperig and edgy, and a bit reassuring retaining peg: If I wanted to watch this change anything, the buckle!
Summing up the EQB-500 is a great watch. She is smart but not too smart – so that power consumption and information just keep the wrist in the frame which does not degenerate into a perversion. I own the Apple Watch tried, and after a few weeks decided: Not every breath of air from the Internet universe as WhatsApp, iMessage, Email and others must compete well on my wrist to my attention. The EQB-500, however, is a clock whose functionality in everyday life is helpful, and their design one does not give the feeling of carrying a communications center on the arm. Instead, the Casio is a clock with hands and everything I expect in a watch.And if I want to be undisturbed, the clock does not answer me, the lack of smart phones in the vicinity. She tells me only the time – just as it is to make a watch also.
The Casio Edifice EQB-500 will cost 299 euros, the clocks are specialized trade available, some online stores have the smartest non-SmartWatch on offer.
