WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch
Casio’s WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch is powered by Android Wear™ and is full of useful tools specifically for those that enjoy outdoor activities. It features a dual-layered LCD comprised of a color and monochrome touch display. When set to Timepiece Mode, the watch switches to an energy-saving mode that displays the time only on the monochrome LCD, allowing users to use it during long outings. It is not only able to check direction, altitude and atmospheric pressure, but also sunrise and sunset times, tide graphs and activity graphs. The WSD-F10 also enables the use of various apps such as email alert, weather, maps, voice search and more to help users stay connected while in the great outdoors. Additionally, users can also load their own apps to expand the feature set for any alternative outdoor activities they may participate in.

PRO TREK PRG300
The PRO TREK PRG300 makes traversing mountain peaks or angling at the local riverbed a breeze thanks to Casio’s innovative Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology. This technology provides outdoor enthusiasts with fast, precise data readings to help navigate through any adventure. With a direction sensor for compass readings, pressure sensor for altimeter/barometer readings and a thermo sensor for temperature readings, adventurers can effortlessly monitor information on outdoor conditions and more. The PRG300 also features Casio’s Tough Solar Power technology. This allows users to charge the timepiece in low or fluorescent light, eliminating the need for continuous battery replacement. It will also power down when not exposed to light for a certain period of time, thus conserving energy.
