Casio developed a radio-controlled wrist watch only half as thick as those on the market.
Radio-controlled wristwatches receive a standard-time radio signal and adjust themselves accordingly.
Casio's new design uses miniaturized components, including a smaller antenna and battery, and packages the signal reception chip and peripheral circuit elements into a 70 percent smaller footprint so that all components can be mounted on a single side of the board. The result is a watch that fits in a 42-millimeter-diameter case, similar in size to competing products, but is only 6-7mm thick.

Casio plans to release the watch before the end of the year in japan and will price it at about 30,000 yen (US$275).
