Welcome to continuation of the beginning of the end. Casio, long-time makers of watches that can survive nuclear blasts, has announced the Protrek Smart WSD-F20, an Android Wear watch for the hiker set.
The new watch joins a previous Smart watch, the WSD-F10. The WSD-F10 and the F20 will also adopt Android Wear 2.0.
The watch has low-power GPS and a color maps and it also includes a number of apps designed to make the most of the watch.
The phone can download offline maps that you can view right on the watch and track your current location constantly. It can also notify folks if you end up falling off the path. It also stores locations as you trek.
It ships later this year.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
