Casio has now launched a new entry in the rapidly expanding Android Wear watch market, the Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10. While the name is a mouthful, the watch itself is quite a looker. Launched at Google Store, Amazon, REI, and the Casio store, the watch will set you back by $499.99. Price a bit too high compared to your average smartwatch? That’s because Casio claims this isn’t your average smartwatch.
The name is not subtle about what this watch is about. Outdoors. If your hobbies, passion or profession has you running, hiking or getting into adventure sports, this is the smartwatch that you’d want at your wrist. While there might certainly be prettier smartwatches out there, this one is all about being sturdy, willing to put up with more wear and tear than those pretty ones. How do you know it can take some damage? Because it has been certified to meet MIL-STD-810G standards. Military grade material right there. Casio even claims that their watch can survive a rainstorm and comes with 50 metre water resistance.
The 1.32 inches dual layer display lets you switch between full colour with Android Wear features for regular use and a monochrome mode with just a time and date display to help extend battery life. It also comes preloaded with apps that will complement your active lifestyle.
This might be one of the priciest smartwatches but it is also one of the most durable ones to have ever been launched. Are you interested in getting yourself one?
