CES2016: An Android smartwatch for the rough and tough situations

By Team Feedbaac

Amongst all the announcements of CES 2016, Casio has introduced their very first Android Wear smartwatch called the WSD-F10. It’s the first Android Wear smartwatch that’s solely meant for outdoor based situations such as trekking and cycling.

The Casio WSD-F10 is MIL-STD-810G military grade certified, that means it’s the toughest Android wearable in existence that can withstand drop shocks and harsh environments. This shouldn’t be a surprise as Casio already has the expertise of its G-Shock portfolio, that’s one of the toughest watches in the world.

The Casio WSD-F10 is the world’s first smartwatch to be incorporated with a microphone that can achieve water resistance over 50 meters. The device can resist heavy rains and sudden water splashes that could happen in adventures.

Unlike the other Android wearables, the Casio WSD-F10 can provide useful information such as compass, altitude, atmospheric pressure measurements, speed, as well as sunrise and sunset times, tide and activity graphs.

The smartwatch can be tuned for several outdoors activities such as trekking, cycling and also fishing. You can also schedule certain notifications such as sunrise, time to have food, eat, or even a good time to go fishing.

Casio has made a breakthrough when it comes to smartwatch ideas. The WSD-F10 basically sports a dual layer screen system where one LCD is monochrome based, and the color LCD for displaying all the Android Wear visuals. When the monochrome mode is activated, Casio claims that the device can run for almost a month of use which is amazing for a smartwatch.

Other features include Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi, and magnetic charging. The new Casio Android Wear smartwatch will be available soon in a variety of colors such as red, orange, green and black. Price is said to be $500.
