When you think of Casio, there is a chance that you might think of watches like the G-Shock series of watches that have been designed to be rugged and for outdoor use. If you are in the market for such a watch, then you might be interested to learn that Casio has announced its latest smartwatch, the Casio PRO TREK WSD-F21HR.
If you’re familiar with smartwatches, then Casio’s PRO TREK series of smartwatches are something you might have come across before in the past. However, what makes the WSD-F21HR a bit more compelling compared to Casio’s previous releases is that this will be the first PRO TREK smartwatch to feature a built-in heart rate monitor.
This means that if you love the idea of being to keep track of your heart rate during your workouts, this could be a watch to consider. The watch will also be powered by Google’s Wear OS platform, so you should be able to access the wide selection of apps already available for Wear OS.
As expected with smartwatches similar to this, there will be the ability to track your runs through Casio’s Activity App. There will also be built-in GPS and offline maps so that even if you don’t have a connection, you’ll still be able to track your runs as you go. If this sounds like a watch you might be interested in, Casio will be selling it for $499.
