Casio Has Introduced Its First Android Wear with G-Shock and Yes, Design Is Spectacular

Huawei, Motorola, and Tag Heuer showed us in 2015 it is possible to make a smartwatch Android Wear very elegant. In fact, models of these companies are considered the most pointer of its category. There is gap a for more models? Since then and more when he enters a company with so much experience by making watches as it is Casio. The day has come: a large manufacturer of watches decides to bet on Android Wear.

A priori we could think of a Casio debut would not be good. They know to make watches but they do not know well this type of technology. Big mistake, the WSD-F10 (and this first Android Wear called) is spectacular combining the best of the two universes to bring us a promising clock with an attractive design but with the same problem of platform than the other models that are betting on Google’s operating system.

The new Casio watch is clearly inspired by g-shock models. If you know the models of Japanese brand safe that you recognize them at the time: large bodies finished rough and ready for any outdoor adventure. The weight of the sphere is of 93 grams and at first glance it seems a very comfortable model to wear on the wrist.

In the technical section highlights a 1.3-inch screen with a resolution of 320 x 300 pixels. Casio repeats the design of the 360 motorcycle tire. I.e., it is not completely round. In this case the part that is not screen is a vertical strip on the right side of the screen. On battery, we don’t have many details but everything suggests that autonomy will be similar to other models with Android Wear.

Design type g-shock is not something purely aesthetic: the housing is resistant to falls and we will be able to submerge in water up to 50 meters. According to Casio, This model is the same military certifications than other watches of this range so the experience in this sense should not be very different.

Aware that Android Wear is a comfort and that makes that all watches are very similar each other, Casio has announced the introduction of several applications such as Runkeeper, Viewranger GPS and other tools created by the company, using sensors of the clock, to quantify activity air free. If they actually met him, it would result in the most complete model to date.

The Japanese brand has confirmed that this Android Wear will be on sale next month of April. We know yet at what price will come to Spain. In United States it will cost $500 so it is possible that the figure for other countries is very similar.
