Casio’s first Android Wear tool remains real to the corporate’s love for construction rugged merchandise. The screws lodged into each and every nook of the chassis do smartly sufficient to remind us that it could possibly take a beating.
And it’s extra than simply seems — it’s MIL-810 qualified, so when you're having to swim in as much as 50 meters in water with it on, you'll be able to do it. We reckon it will have to additionally have the ability to take rather the thrashing while dropped or hit by way of small particles, differently it wouldn’t be have compatibility to be used on a battlefield (now not that lots of you will be the use of it in just about those self same prerequisites, in fact).

When you wish to have to squeeze extra lifestyles out of it you'll be able to pass into a monochrome LCD mode that lasts days at a time, although it best manages to inform the time in that mode. You can disengage that for a complete colour, complete-blown Android Wear revel in if battery lifestyles isn’t of outrage.
Casio’s watch options a choice of other watch faces which make feel for the outdoorsy other folks it’s aimed at. You can test present altitude, air drive, compass course, tide graphs, first light and sundown occasions and extra from any given watch face.
It’s a hefty beast, and that still comes with a hefty price ticket: $500. That’s now not as exhausting to swallow because the $1,500 Tag Heuer choice, in fact, however it’s nonetheless positive to lead to a few surprise for many who in finding it onerous to head some distance past $300. That stated, Casio is having a bet that it’ll be value it for many who were looking ahead to one thing like this, and with nobody else actually difficult them within the rugged sensible watch recreation presently we’d say it’s now not too unsafe a transfer.
