◆ I tried outdoors
WSD - F 10 is a smart watch for outdoor faction, so I brought it to the mountain and tried it.
The display of WSD - F 10 was very easy to see, there was almost no need to purposely move to the shade and check the display.
A tool application that can utilize the sensor of WSD - F 10 instead of the function of smartphone is more convenient than I imagined. It is unlikely that you will lose sight of the direction even on the mountain road of cloudy skies.
Considering that it was "-47 meters" start, the altitude is about 300 meters.
The atmospheric pressure is low even when considering the altitude of 300 meters. It is the weather that it is going to rain.
The sunset display is convenient for trekking schedule management.
The display of Google map is also this street. However, careful attention is required in the state that there is no radio wave of the smartphone, the online premise application can not be used naturally.
The WSD - F 10 is a smartphone for active faction designed to be used in outdoor such as trekking, cycling, fishing, etc. The concept is very clear. For designs and usability as well "Watch" enough to have the ability to have the ability to keep making clocks unique to CASIO feeling. I do not know what to do while saying "It can do anything" which is not easy to use as a clock originally made by an emerging manufacturer, it is a perfect completion with a multifunction Smart Watch.
In addition, smartness that puts emphasis on designability is thrown away, rather than grueling instead of dullness and waterproofness etc. The virtue of practicality pretty much can be likable. As a result of actually using it, even if you do not use the time piece mode, you have plenty of time to spare batteries and the ease of charging the battery is also outstanding, so there was little anxiety about batteries nominated by smart watches.
WSD - F 10 seems to be a very reliable presence for users with clear purpose such as trekking, cycling and phishing.
