As for the details about the smartwatch, company president Kazuhiro Kashio revealed very little, commenting about its build quality.

“A device that won’t break easily, is simple to put on and feels good to wear,” and that’s about it.

Certainly, Casio has a lot of experience when it comes to building wrist watches and have pioneered a couple of them in past as well.
