Casio pumps its new smartwatch full of Android Wear 2.0

A watch for the adventurers

Casio has launched its latest smartwatch, the WSD-F20 at CES 2017, and it’s aimed firmly at those will a love of the great outdoors. 

The rugged watch has a sizable protective bezel and chunky design allowing it to survive your outdoor pursuits, while built-in GPS (and a full-color map which can be downloaded for offline use) should stop you from getting lost. GPS was the most requested feature by users of its predecessor, the WSD-F10. 

It runs Android Wear 2.0 – the latest software from Google for wearables - making it one of the first smartwatches to do so.

The Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 features apps focused on activities such as fishing, paddling, hiking and cycling, as well as including ‘Location Memory’ which gives you a readout of your location with just the click of one button.

There's a microphone too, allowing you to make voice notes on the watch and compose messages to other users via the Memory Link app.

We're waiting to hear details about the Casio WSD-F20 release date, but we know how much it will cost. $500 (around £400, AU$680) - which is A LOT.
