Casio introduced at the Consumers Electronics show 2017 a new smartwatch WSD-F20 which is actually a follow-up to the F10. The latest in the league of the Android Wear watches, the new watch from Casio has a bigger bezel than its predecessor. However, it has the same rugged outdoor look and also available in black or orange colors.
It’s built to military standards (MIL-STD 810G) and nothing has changed on the screen front. It is water resistant up to 50 meters, hence it is also rain proof and can easily withstand your sweat. There are built-in tools for tracking your speed while skiing or snowboarding, finding your depth while diving or elevation while hiking.
Casio WSD-F20 has a 1.32-inch LCD display which puts perfect brightness for outdoor conditions. With the WSD-F20, Casio has managed to include a low-power GPS chip and the company has said that the Glonass and Michibiki support in the works. Together with a brighter display and built-in GPS, the watch is the perfect partner for outdoorsy and those who like to go for some adventures.
Casio WSD-F20 was found running the demo of the Android Wear 2.0 which is yet to come. The smartwatch has given a glimpse of the OS ahead of the official launch. Casio has also baked in some custom functions on the top of the Android Wear 2.0, including its own watch faces and mapping app.
