One year after the introduction of the WSD-F20, Casio unveils the Pro Trek WSD-F20SC "adventure smartwatch" at the ongoing Baselworld 2018 trade show that focuses on wearable technology. Compared to its predecessor, the WSD-F20SC also comes with a sapphire crystal display that can easily handle scratches and bumps, as well as a durable Field Composite band.

Casio introduced the Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 "adventure watch" back in early 2017 at the Consumer Electronics Show. This rugged smart wearable does not need a smartphone to download and use maps, featuring its own GPS and also being able to provide a generous battery life. The limited edition WSD-F20SC does not bring much to the table in terms of features, focusing on the ruggedness of the device instead. 

If you don't have the time to watch the review embedded at the end of this article, we should mention the following key specs of the Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20SC (features-wise, the WSD-F20 is about the same and there are no reviews of the WSD-F20SC online yet, so this is why I chose to share the review of that one): digital compass, barometer, altimeter, full color maps for offline navigation, 5 BAR water resistance (handles immersion all the way down to 165 feet), compliant with the MIL-STD-810G standard for ruggedness and resistant to low temperatures (14°F) as well. 

In addition to the above, the Wear OS-driven Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20SC comes with a sapphire crystal display and a Field Composite band that features metal-reinforced urethane H-Links with resin connecting pieces.

Sadly, only 700 WSD-F20SC units will be sold. They should become available in June, but the details on the price and accurate launch date are not official yet. Anyway, the regular WSD-F20 will remain in Casio's portfolio, carrying the same price of around US$500.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
