Casio to release smartwatch with Android Wear
Casio America, Inc. is planning to release the WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch, an Android Wear wrist device with water resistance to 50 meters and built to military standard specifications.

Casio has been developing watches since the 1970s, and later developed PDAs and cellular phones from the 1990s into the 2000s. Leveraging its technology and experience with both watches and information devices, Casio continues to develop wrist devices that deliver true value to users in new ways.

The new WSD-F10 wrist device is optimal for the outdoors, boasting water resistance for use in rain and around water, and is tested to military standard specifications to ensure it can withstand a variety of rugged activities. Incorporating Casio's tough performance and sensor technologies, the WSD-F10 delivers a polished experience as a wearable information device.

The WSD-F10 offers a wealth of useful original Casio applications for outdoor activities such as trekking, cycling, and fishing. Among these are dedicated apps designed to measure changes in the natural environment and track activity levels. The device is powered by Android Wear, and users can also load their own apps to expand the feature set for diverse outdoor activities.

The watch face features a dual layer display with monochrome and color LCDs. Users can display measurement data and apps in color (320 x 300 pixels), or they can extend the device's life to more than one month by selecting to a Timepiece Mode that displays only watch data in monochrome.

The WSD-F10 also offers the ultimate in ease of use as an everyday watch, making the most of Casio's years of experience in the timepiece business. The operating buttons are large and feature a slip-free finish so they can easily be operated with gloves on, and they are concentrated on the right side of the case. The wristband is made from soft urethane plastic that conforms to the wrist and can be comfortably worn for extended periods.
