Japanese watchmaker Casio recently announced the unveiling of its first modern-day smartwatch in March 2016. This is happening forty-one years after Casio produced its first electronic watch, and almost four decades prior to Apple’s release of its own smartwatch brand. Company’s president and chief operating officer, Kazuhiro Kashio revealed this information telling for the Wall Street Journal: “We are trying to bring our smartwatch to a level of watch perfection: a device that won’t break easily, is simple to put on and feels good to wear.”
New smartwatch is expected to have a price range of $400, it’ll go on sale in US for $349. It wasn’t made clear what operating system the smartwatch will use, but it doesn’t sound as the watch will be decked in Android Wear.
