  • This is the Casio WSD-F10 - Android Wear with a difference


    PaulOBrien

    At CES in Las Vegas, Casio has announced its first Android Wear device, the snappily named WSD-F10. While it might look like a typical Wear device (complete with 'flat tyre') of which there seem to be so many, there are, as you might expect given Casio's heritage, some neat little features on this 'Smart Outdoor Watch' to make it stand out from the crowd.

    First up, this is a serious bit of outdoor kit. Some Android Wear devices are, shall we say, a little 'fragile', but the WSD-F10 is water resistant to 50 meters and built to military standard specifications (specifially, it's "Tested to United States military standard MIL-STD-810 issued by the U.S. Department of Defense to perform in the rugged outdoors. Meets testing requirements under various environmental conditions including shock and vibration.").

    The watch is at home outdoors, in the rain and around water, and is designed to withstand a variety of rugged activities such as trekking, cycling, and fishing. As well as having access to the huge range of available Android Wear applications in the Play Store, the WSD-F10 includes dedicated apps designed to measure changes in the natural environment and track activity levels.

    One aspect I find particularly interesting is the screen, which features a dual layer display with monochrome and colour LCDs. Users can display measurement data and apps in colour, or they can extend the device's life to more than one month by selecting to a Timepiece Mode that displays only watch data in monochrome. Very neat.

    Like a lot of Casio products, the WSD-F10 is large. At 61.7mm × 56.4mm × 15.7mm (H×W×D) and 93g including the plastic wristband, the device is bigger than the already substantial LG Urbane I use daily, which measures 45.5mm x 52.2mm x 10.9mm and weighs 66.5g. Subtle it is not, particularly in the orange or red colours (my favourites!).

    On the positive side though, the buttons are large and feature a slip-free finish so they can easily be operated with gloves on, definitely an important use case for a device of this type.

    The WSD-F10 won't be cheap, with a RRP of $500 in the US and European pricing still to be confirmed. I'm a big Casio fan personally and am really looking forward to trying the device.

    Further details can be found on the product page at Casio.com.
