The latest models of the Casio Wear OS devices include not only GPS and mapping but also comes with an altimeter, barometer, and compass. These watches can also function as an activity tracker, which is currently the most common use of smartwatches. The watches are designed to rugged and water-resistant.
An edition of Pro Trek Smart Outdoor Watch, WSD-F20 was launched earlier this year. The upcoming edition and the previous edition are totally identical except for their color and some minor distinctions. The newest edition does not have a stainless buckle or grips for easier use with gloves.
The original edition of Pro Trek turned out to be a great product for hikers, however, it fell short for various other outdoor activities such as cycling. This year’s model will be addressing all these shortcomings of the previous editions.
