It has to be noticed that Casio has just launched their inelegantly named still elegantly designed Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 on the Google Play Store, Amazon, REI, and the Casio store. The price tag might seem steep at $499.99, however the device is specifically designed to be tough as nails for those living rugged, outdoor lives.
Casio Sports Watches
It goes without saying that one of the most interesting workout watches so far this year is the STB-1000 "Sports Gear" collection of Bluetooth-enabled watches by Casio. These seem to be an answer to the question of "can I combine my fitness tracker with something that tells me if I have a new text message?" Casio extends the functionality of their existing Casio G-Shock Bluetooth watches with the features of a fitness watch that connects to dedicated fitness apps on your iPhone.
Whether believe or not,perhaps,the next technological battle royale take place on our wrists. While Google, Motorola, Samsung, and Apple are all likely to extend their mobile operating systems to watch faces in the coming years, none of those companies are watchmakers at heart. Casio, which has 40 years of experience in making digital watches, is approaching things from a different angle: Making traditional watches that interact with smartphones, rather than wrist-mounted mini-computers that act as a mobile device’s second screen.
It is well-known that most surf watches are just regular waterproof timepieces with some sort of tide indicator on the face—a little dial, or a digital readout you manually set to high tide or low tide. These usually require some readjustment as the heavenly bodies tango through their orbits. An occasional reset is no big deal, and old-school tide watches certainly have their charms.
