A smart watch and GPS with Android 2.0.
Personally I own a Casio ProTrek Tough Solar watch and that thing is really tough. It gives me altitude, barometric pressure, and has an digital compass. It also has all your regular watch functions (time, alarms, stopwatch, and timer). It was also doesn't need a battery.
THIS WATCH is better than the Tough Solar! This is a Smart Watch and has sooo many functions and features. If you're a smart watch person, this isn't an Apple Watch or similar. This is a robust watch for getting outdoors and tracking the important information while you're out there. And it does do a lot more! The WSD-F20 is feature rich and has a bunch of cool capabilities:
High Tide/Low Tide Alarms (that can be set with Vibration)
Sunset/Sunrise Alarms (that can be set with Vibration)
GPS (linked with Mapbox//4 Gigs of storage) - you can store waypoints, notes, and voice memos.
Google Fit Integration
- What it doesn't have? A heartrate monitor
This is a Hiker's watch. You do have to download the maps prior in the event your phone doesn't get reception.
