Casio Malaysia will be bringing in a limited edition version of the PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20S Android 2.0 smartwatch. It’s technically the same as the WSD-F20S that was originally announced back at CES in January; which is already available on a smaller scale here.
Unlike most smartwatches, the PRO TREK series is designed to survive trips into the outdoors. It meets the MIL-STD-810 standard from the US Military, and is rated to survive depths of up to 50 metres.
The original WSD-F20S had an bright metallic orange colour to it, probably for increased visibility in the wilds. This limited edition version does away with that and re-introduces a blue and black finish to the smartwatch.
Aside from that, it packs all the useful navigational tools like an altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetic compass sensor. Casio has included GPS compatibility with the WSD-F20S, and is also expanding this positioning to include GLONASS and Michibiki.
The WSD-F20S will run for just over one day on full smartwatch mode; which is more than a little disappointing. On the other hand, it can be switched to timekeeping only and will run for a whole month.
There are only 500 units of the limited edition PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20S on sale around the world. These will be sold at the ICJ & G Factory from mid June for RM2,199.
