Casio America is set to make a new addition to the Pro Trek Smart series of wrist devices for outdoor enthusiast.
The new WSD-F21HR, which is planned for release this September, is outfitted with a heart rate monitor for pace management during activities.
It will be the first Pro Trek Smart to offer an optical sensor. It measures users’ heart rates by flashing a LED light onto the wrist.
Once measured, information is expressed as one of five heart rate zones, allowing users to see the elapsed time and other stats at a glance.
The watch also has a new heart rate watch face which enables it to automatically switch to the heart rate monitor screen when motion is detected by the accelerometer.
It also has a Casio Activity App, GPS and Offline Maps and, like other Pro Trek Smart models, the new WSD-F21HR can access Google App services, the trekking app ViewRanger, the cycling app BIKEMAP, the running app STRAVA, and other outdoor sports apps compatible with Wear OS by Google.
Retailing at $499, the WSD-F21HR will be available in black and red at select jewelry and watch retailers nationwide.
