American watch brand Casio has ventured further into the world of the outdoors with the latest addition to its Pro Trek series of watches, the WSD-F20A.
The WSD-F20A, which will be available across the US from May, is designed to offer the hallmark features of outdoor timepieces at a lower, more affordable price point.
The wristwatch is powered by the Wear OS by Google operating system, and allows users to tap into low-power GPS and full color maps with navigation even when the watch is offline. Maps downloaded ahead of time can be accessed on the watch to guide users on their adventures.
Casio also inked contracts with nine app companies to provide popular outdoors and sports apps with a global reach. These apps are showcased in the ‘featured apps’ list on the device for users to download.
Designed with indigo accents, a soft black urethane band and buckle, button guards, a protective bezel, and three large side buttons, the WSD-F20A offers an enhanced design and operability, making it an essential piece of everyday gear.
The WSD-F20A is water resistance up to 50 meters and boasts military-standard 810G durability, a digital compass, a microphone and a dual-layer LCD.
The PRO TREK WSD-F20A Smart Outdoor Watch will be available in May for $399.00 at select retailers nationwide and online.
The WSD-F20A comes a week on from the announcement that Casio would be offering a limited edition version of the Pro Trek, the WSD-F20WE.
Only 1,500 of the WSD-F20WE model are being made. It goes on sale this month at the Casio online store and select US retailers for $500.
