While Casio is more known for its traditional analogue and digital watches such as the G-Shock and Edifice series, the Japanese company does fuse its watches with smart technologies from time to time. The new WSD-F20 smart watch that was launched at the recent CES 2017 is one such example.
Given how the smart watch is positioned under the company’s Pro Trek series, it is clearly made for users that love outdoor activities. In fact, the new model is actually a follow-up to the Pro Trek WSD-F10 smart watch that the company launched last year.
Aside from the new color scheme, WSD-F20 might looked identical to its predecessor since it also utilizes 1.32-inch dual layer touch display but at the same time, the new watch does come standard with the equally new Android Wear 2.0 operating system. To be fair though, WSD-F10 will receive it later this year as well.
In addition to that, the new smart watch is also equipped with built-in GPS chip that allows the watch to tap on Mapbox’s data pool. Users are also able to take advantage of WSD-F20’s color map functionality as well as its offline map capability.
Another function within WSD-F20 that could be useful for adventurous users out there is called Location Memory which users to customize their maps with markers and notes. Designed to withstand the MIL-STD-810 standard and up to 50 meters underwater, the new Pro Trek WSD-F20 will be priced at USD 500 (about RM 2,231) once it is released in selected market throughout the world this coming April.
