Casio unveiled their first Android Wear smartwatch at CES back in January. The Casio WDS-F10 is designed for the outdoors, with activities such as trekking, fishing and cycling in mind.
The new Casio smartwatch offers a few features that are so far unique to the Android Wear line up, such as a built-in mic which is water-resistant up to 50 meters, and a 1.3″ 320 x 200 dual-layer display with both monochrome and color LCDs.
The watch’s outdoor features include: sunrise/sunset times, local tide data, compass readings, air pressure, and real-time speed, distance, atmospheric pressure and more can be easily accessed with Casio’s One-Touch app button. One useful outdoor feature that the watch lacks is a built-in GPS, instead it rely’s on your smartphone’s GPS to determine your location.
The circular Android Wear smartwatch comes with a selection of analogue and digital style watch faces and plenty of pre-installed apps for your outdoor adventures, including: ViewRanger, YAMAP, MyRadar and Runkeeper. It connects to your phone using Bluetooth 4.1 and it’s wi-fi-enabled.
The Casio WSD-F10 delivers incoming calls, text and email notifications. You can also set reminders, such as when it’s a good time for a spot of fishing. The watch is only compatible with Android devices and comes with a hefty price tag of about $500.
