The Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 is the successor to the WSD-F10. Design wise, it’s quite similar to its predecessor and comes with the characteristic rugged appearance of a Pro Trek series smartwatch. It, however, bears a marginally slimmer profile.

Apart from the display, the Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20 smartwatch comes with a 512MB RAM and 4GB of onboard memory. It goes without saying that the watch comes with a MIL-STD-810G dust and waterproofing certification of upto 50metres. So you can always use this watch for diving.
