I know right, with all that room around the display I see no reason to have the flat tire. Also for an outdoor watch I would expect 2 days of tracking minimum. They need a good solar panel around the perimeter in the hash marks (where they should have housed the OLED circuitry/sensors).

I quote: "The Casio Smart Outdoor Watch is built for adventurers".
And yet the targeted audience is mostly consist of geeks who spend their entire day swiping on their smartphones, you know geeks & couch potatoes...
Well, at least; I'm not only a geek, but also an avid motorcyclist... Or biker if you so prefer though I don't have a big beard & I don't wear chain wallets etc...

Can't you be a geek and an adventurer at the same time?

No it isn't. This is basically a fitness tracker with smart watch capabilities. Not sure couch potatoes have need for an elevation tracker.

Very nice piece. A G Shock styled smartwatch would be wicked.

Waiting for seiko to create a diver android wear with 200m water resistance.Sounds pointless,but why not?

I totally would get this. A smartwatch that I can take swimming, surfing, snorkeling, etc would be awesome. BTW....the design looks great for an outdoors watch. Not something I'd wear when I go out on the town (my Moto 360 is for that), but definitely something I'd wear while being active.

Now we're getting somewhere. Still out of my price range but the designs are looking better.

If I was given one for free I would wear it. I would still choose the S2 though..
