Today, Casio announced a new smartwatch running Google's Wear OS platform. The WSD-F30, which is aimed specifically at outdoor adventurers, is available in blue, black and orange. It sports a 1.2-inch dual-layer display, with a monochrome LCD and a color OLED 390x390 pixel screen. The WSD-F30 is water resistant up to 50 meters and is temperature resistant to -10 degrees C. The watch will be available starting in late January 2019.
The biggest new feature of the WSD-F30 is Extend Mode, allowing the use of offline color maps. Not only that, but offline GPS logging is enabled for eight hours of continuous use per day for three days. While in Extend Mode, the time and data is shown on the monochrome display only. Color maps only appear when a button is pushed. Extend Mode also features a standby mode that the user can schedule in order to preserve battery life.
