Casio WSD-F30 hands-on: MrMobile’s favorite smartwatch gets an upgrade

For my money, nobody builds a better summertime smartwatch than Casio. The company’s ProTrek series has it all: alti-barometers, rugged casings, standalone GPS, and dual-layer displays that offer incredible readability in direct sunlight. Even occasional outdoorsmen such as myself can appreciate the ProTrek F10 and F20 for the sheer boldness of their oversized designs, while those in search of more petite wearables have understandably gone elsewhere.

Casio ProTrek Smart review: Adventure watch

Casio gets a lot more attention than some other watchmakers on the MrMobile channel, and that’s because it’s one of the few companies doing something different with Android Wear. Last year, I reviewed the company’s feature-packed but pricey WSD-F10 outdoor smartwatch, and this summer’s sequel has ditched the clunky model number for a (slightly) streamlined brand name.

Casio WSD-F20 hands-on: Android Wear 2.0 that can go anywhere

Casio is one of a few watchmakers sticking with Android Wear for the time being.

Casio’s second Android Wear watch is just as huge, feature-packed and ostentatious as the last, and it’s running Android Wear 2.0. It’s the not-so-smoothly named WSD-F20, a follow-up to the F10, and just as the brand name and a single glance at the watch would lead you to believe it’s a perfect match for those with an active lifestyle.
