DOVER, N.J., May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This May, Casio America, Inc. encourages consumers to get outdoors and reap the benefits of being active during Physical Fitness and Sports Month. Created to promote a healthy lifestyle, Physical Fitness and Sports Month is the perfect time to renew commitments for staying fit. Casio's PRO TREK WSD-F20 Smart Outdoor Watch supports a variety of outdoor activities, making it a must-have tool for those planning to incorporate fitness into their daily life.
"Physical Fitness and Sports Month encourages people of all ages to get moving and improve their level of physical activity," said David Johnson, vice president of Casio's Timepiece Division. "Casio's WSD-F20 was designed as a tool for outdoor activities that help you improve, track or generally support all your fitness needs."
It's easy to take your fitness routine to the trails; the PRO TREK WSD-F20 Smart Outdoor Watch comes equipped with GPS capabilities, full color map display, and offline map data. With map data from Mapbox, maps downloaded in advance can be displayed even when a mobile device is offline or out of range, making it easy to display your route, provide navigation guidance, and even see the distance to your next waypoint at a glance. The dual-layer display features superimposed monochrome and color LCDs which enables the WSD-F20 to switch to Power Saving mode, ensuring the battery life will endure the length of your hike.
With the PRO TREK WSD-F20 Smart Outdoor Watch, data such as travel speed, elapsed time and distance are close at hand without checking your Smartphone. When using Casio's Moment Setter app, the WSD-F20 can alert the user to important moments while cycling by setting conditions to automatically receive important alerts, such as rest break intervals and pace management.
Even with its built-in microphone, the WSD-F20 Smart Outdoor Watch achieves 50 meter water resistance, making it the ideal tool for water sports such as kayaking. When pressed, the TOOL button displays a compass, altimeter, barometer, and other information. Get a quick look into climatic conditions such as atmospheric pressure and tide graphs to ensure your time on the water is not interrupted by an incoming weather change.
Casio's PRO TREK Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F20 is available now in black and orange for a MSRP of $500.00 online at ShopCasio and Amazon, as well as select retailers nationwide including REI and Macy's. For additional information, please visit: http://wsd.casio.com/us/en/.
