Before now, if you wanted an Android Wear smartwatch you had to choose from a few makers like Motorola, Samsung or LG. Now, we have fashion brands, celebrities and other companies coming out with better options by the day. The latest company to join the smartwatch bandwagon is Casio, the company just unveiled its first Android Wear smartwatch, the WSD-F10. The WSD-F10 from Casio is bit on the pricey side, but the company hopes that it’s rugged, water-resistant and outdoor-friendly features will sway you over. The WSD-F10 comes with a pressure sensor, compass and it’s custom software features you can totally use for outdoor activities. The most interesting feature of the WSD-F10 is it’s battery life, the watch can last for up to a month on battery in a basic digital watch mode. If you’re an outdoor type person that wouldn’t mind the rugged look of the WSD-F10, then it’s worth knowing that it will be available on March 25th through multiple outlets (including Amazon and the Google Store) for $500.
