Casio has unveiled its latest smartwatch, the WSD-F30RG. This version of the PRO TREK series has a reddish-orange case and a carbon-fiber effect strap. it also has an OLED display with dual-layer technology. Casio claims that it is clearer and supports more detail compared to its predecessors.

This model, somewhat like the Ticwatch Pro before it, has both color and monochrome layers. Casio is distinctly pushing it as a smartwatch for outdoor pursuits such as golfing and fishing. To this end, it is compatible with the Hole19 and Fishbrain Wear OS apps.

Hole 19 is a GPS-dependent app that is designed to track and record golfing scores or progress. It is a paid (US$4.99) app; however, its latest features are exclusive to PRO TREK devices for a limited time. They are: Authentication, Scoring and Wearable Maps.

Fishbrain is an app that allows users similar functions to Hole 19 on their smartwatches rather than their phones. On the WSD-F30RG, it supports Google Assistant integration for voice-activated catch-logging, as well as local weather and location tracker.

The new PRO TREK itself has a MIL-standard 810G rating for durability, 50-meter water resistance and a digital compass. It is available now on Casio's own website for a price of US$549.99.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
