World’s First Casio Smart Outdoor Watch Debuts in Singapore

World’s First Casio Smart Outdoor Watch Debuts in Singapore
The Casio WSD-F10 wrist device with Android Wear™ is equipped with a full range of smart features to take on life’s greatest adventures

Singapore, 1 September 2016 – Casio Singapore has announced the South East Asia debut of the first Casio Smart Outdoor Watch with Android Wear™, the Casio WSD-F10, in Singapore. From 8 September 2016, sports lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will be able to get their hands on the WSD-F10 which will be available at selected G-FACTORY stores and licensed retailers island wide.
Designed for the tech-savvy adventurer, the Smart Outdoor Watch combines rock-solid functional endurance with advanced technology. Featuring all-encompassing specifications capable of enhancing a broad variety of outdoor activities, the Smart Outdoor Watch is the key to excelling in outdoor pursuits and sporting activities.

Master the outdoors with handy in-built applications
Powered by Android Wear[1] with iOS compatibility on selected applications[2], the Smart Outdoor Watch comes with pre-installed applications to support outdoor activities, including innovative applications designed to measure environmental changes and monitor the user’s personal performance by tracking speed and distance covered.
The Smart Outdoor Watch also links to the Casio Moment Setter+ smartphone app[3] to provide essential information for activities such as trekking, cycling, and fishing. Users can configure the application to automatically send information based on previously set conditions such as speed, distance, time of sunrise and break timing.
It can also help fishing enthusiasts anticipate when fish will be most active by providing atmospheric pressure tendency information that can help anticipate weather changes and high and low tide timings.
Users can expand the Smart Outdoor Watch’s feature set by installing additional applications of their choice to chart the best course of action and realise their full potential in the great outdoors.

Military-grade features primed to endure the elements
The Smart Outdoor Watch is designed for optimal performance even in extreme environmental conditions. Its tough performance model complies with military standard endurance tests specified by the U.S. Department of Defense so that it can withstand drop shocks, high humidity, solar-radiation, temperature shocks and other demands of rugged terrains.
As the first[4] smartwatch with a built-in microphone to achieve 5 Bar water resistance, the Smart Outdoor Watch assures protection even in the event of rain or water splashes from activities such as fishing or kayaking.
Whether day or night, a dual layer display with separate monochrome and colour liquid crystal displays (LCDs) also helps to retain clear visibility even under bright sunlight, while the colour LCD provides a vivid display of performance information.
To ensure lasting performance during overnight treks or cycling expeditions, users can simply flick on the power-conserving Timepiece Mode to toggle as needed between the two displays, displaying only time data in monochrome when applications are not in use.

Connectivity with Casio EXILIM EX-FR100 Outdoor Camera
As an added feature, the Smart Outdoor Watch syncs with Casio’s EXILIM EX-FR100 Outdoor Camera via Bluetooth Smart™ technology and can be used as a secondary display module to remotely control the camera.
Adventurers can continue living in the moment and capture highlights while on the go and extend the EX-FR100’s hands-free shooting capabilities with ease for creating lasting memories.
