I'm not really sure whether these are truly classed as smartwatches, maybe more of a gshock with a few extra features.
I thought I'd take the plunge and buy one of these as the gshock range has always appealed to me, and recently the watch has become compatible with the galaxy s4.
First impressions are very good, a very nice looking, light watch that works as described.
The Bluetooth features work well, although it relies on the gshock+ app, which is a bit limited. At the moment you can receive notifications for SMS, email,Facebook,twitter and incoming calls.
What really appealed to me is the promised 2 year battery life, which sets this apart from all the other 'smartwatches' and is waterproof up to 200m.
Definitely worth considering if you don't need heaps of features.

Can you provide a link to the one you bought, by chance? I was actually looking at these yesterday, but due to the sheer number of them, wasn't sure quite where to begin.

I have the 6900aa although there's a newer version out now, the 6900b that has some improved features, such as controlling your music from the watch, and setting the timer and alarm from the phone. However, the only way I'd be able to get hold of one, being in the UK, would be to order from Japan.
Feel free to ask if there's anything else you want to know
Here's a link to the site as well;

Does the z1 run 4.3? Because as far as I know the gshock app should now work with any phone running 4.3

I'm sure it can in theory because the old version of the app worked with the s4 when that was running 4.2, so 4.3 wasn't a requirement back then.
