Affordable Casio Pro Trek PRT-B50 watch with smartphone connectivity revealed
Three new PRT-B50 series models have been revealed this week, all featuring Smartphone Link functionality via the Pro Trek Connected app and quad sensor technology. These watches have three sensors that detect compass bearing, barometric pressure/altitude, and temperature, plus an accelerometer for counting steps.
Also, each model uses Bluetooth to offer Smartphone Link functionality, a feature that allows the watches to connect to the Pro Trek Connected app and other outdoor specific features such as Route Log, Calories burned, Location indicator, Customizable mode/display, Automatic altitude adjustment, Automatic time adjustment, and Mobile phone finder.
They boast a wide watch face that packs a large, rotating bezel and Arabic numeral indices. The new models have been designed with a 3D textured urethane band a and a strap keeper to keep the watch in place.
According to Casio, all three PRT-B50 watches will be available this fall for $200 at select retailers nationwide. They will come in three different colors: black, blue, and orange.
