Casio Pro Trek F20 adds GPS to the rugged personality of its predecessor

Peter, 03 January 2017

Casio unveiled its second-generation Android Wear watch and it made it a part of its outdoors-focused Pro Trek lineup. The Casio Pro Trek WSD-F20 as the new watch is called follows up on the F10 by adding a low-power GPS receiver.

Both offline and online maps are supported (data provided by Mapbox) and an upcoming app will allow you to mark locations on the map. Two bespoke watch faces are available - Location and Travel - which use positioning data and offer helpful shortcuts.

GPS is enhanced with a magnetic compass, barometer and altimeter for a more traditional navigation experience. They will track your ascent and descent through the mountain and alert you of incoming storms.

And there are few places you canít go with the Casio pro Trek F20 - with a MIL-STD-810G military rating and 50m waterproofing, itís much tougher than most Android watches and phones (IP68 hovers around the 1.5m mark!).

The dual-layer display is back - it offers a monochrome mode (high visibility, low power use) and color (for the advanced Android Wear features). Anti-fouling coating should keep the display free of fingerprints.

The Casio Pro Trek WSD-F20 will launch with Android Wear 2.0 and it will go on sale on April 21 in Black and Orange colors. Pricing is unknown but the previous model cost $500.
