In the close up pictures of the individual Senshi on the Official Site, you can see that the Four Guardian Senshi (Mars, Mercury, Venus, & Jupiter) are all wearing wrist-watches on their left arms. According to Bandai's Gachapon Magazine, the wrist-watches are the Four Guardian Senshi's transformation items. Also, the magazine reveals that the Senshi will be communicating through Cell Phones.
