Casio WSD-F20A is a new Wear OS watch that's (somewhat) affordable
Casio today announced a brand new smartwatch that's a bit more affordable than the company's recent offerings in this class. Called WSD-F20A, the new watch is part of Casio's Pro Trek series, thus being made for outdoor enthusiasts.
Running Google's Wear OS, the Casio WSD-F20A features built-in GPS and full color maps that can be used offline. The watch sports a 1.32-inch display with 320 x 300 pixels, and comes with various features that help in outdoor and water activities - including digital compass, barometer, altimeter, and activity tracker.
According to Casio, the WSD-F20A is made out of durable resin parts, with a soft black urethane band. The watch is water-resistant (up to 50 meters), as well as shock- and drop-resistant (up to 1.2 meters).
Since it's based on Wear OS, the WSD-F20A is compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 or newer, and iPhones running iOS 9.0 or newer. The smartwatch is priced at $399, so it's $100 cheaper than the Casio WSD-F20 from last year.
The Casio WSD-F20A will be available to buy starting May 1 on Casio's US website, as well as at select retailers across the US.
