Japanese electronics giant Casio is bringing its longstanding technical know-how and rugged pedigree of the G-Shock series of watches into the mobile phone market, with the new G’zOne Commando phone. And to celebrate the phone’s heralded toughness, Casio is releasing a series of video shorts showcasing the high-octane sporting environments in which the phone is designed to excel, like longboarding, parkour, climbing, and base jumping. Powered by the wireless carrier Verizon, the phone is billed as both ‘smart,’ and ‘tough,’ capable of withstanding water immersion, repeated drops, and prolonged exposure to dust, while offering the user an intelligent interface and a bevy of features for life in the boardroom as well.
