DOVER, N.J., June 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Casio America, Inc. encourages consumers to get outside and appreciate the splendor of nature this June in celebration of Great Outdoors Month. Since 1998, Great Outdoors Month has grown from a weeklong celebration to an entire month, encouraging people everywhere to enjoy the beauty and benefits that come from outdoor exploration.
"There is no better way to focus on enjoying June's warm weather than by taking part in activities that get you outdoors," said David Johnson, Vice President of Casio's Timepiece Division. "Casio's PRO TREK line, including the WSD-F20 Smart Outdoor Watch, will support you on any adventure, from hiking to kayaking or simply fishing, ensuring you have the features to help explore and celebrate Great Outdoors Month."
WSD-F20 Smart Outdoor Watch
Whether hiking the trails of your nearest National Park or kayaking in a local lake, Casio's WSD-F20 Smart Outdoor Watch has the features to make the most of your outdoor excursions. Enjoy your adventures worry-free with low-power GPS and full color map functionality that can be used offline. Richly-designed and easy-to-read data from Mapbox enables maps to be downloaded in advance and when used with GPS data can track the user's location, even when offline. This makes it easy to display your route and provide navigation guidance at a glance.
Casio's WSD-F20 is powered by Android Wear™ 2.0 and can therefore be used with a range of apps to enhance your outdoor experience. Add notes like a great vantage point to otherwise unmarked map spots with the Location Memory app, which instantly reads the user's current location by pressing a button on the side of the watch. Casio's Moment Setter app alerts the user to important moments while hiking, cycling, fishing, or enjoying water sports. The user sets conditions to automatically receive important alerts, such as best fishing times, rest intervals, and sunrise/sunset times.
Depending on usage conditions, the battery life is typically one to two days under normal use; perfect for your casual outdoor excursions. When GPS is enabled, battery life ranges from six hours to two days. When only the Timepiece Mode is used and GPS is disabled, battery life extends to roughly a month or more.
Designed with a soft urethane band, button guards, a protective bezel, and side buttons of varying sizes, the WSD-F20 offers enhanced operability and toughness, making it an even more useful piece of outdoor gear. Available now in black and orange for a MSRP of $500.00 it is sold online at ShopCasio and Amazon, as well as select retailers nationwide including REI and Macy's.
