Trailblazer

The WSD-F21HR has high-definition maps in full color and a current-location display, so you always know where you are. With the built-in GPS, you can import routes from your history or snag some recommended ones from ViewRanger using Google Drive in either KML or GPX format.

You can contribute to the pool of paths by creating your routes with markers and checkpoints, and then sharing them.

Intensity

The WSD-F21HR is the first model to measure your heart rate in real time. Using an optical sensor that shines an LED to detect blood flow, the device collects and analyzes a wide range of data. The watch then graphically displays the information, allowing you to engage in more targeted training improvements.

The Pro Trek watch automatically backs up your stats to Google Drive and then manages your activity in Google Calendar to provide useful daily information.

Visibility

What’s the use of having maps if you can’t see them? The WSD-F21HR has a large 1.32-inch, dual-layer touch display. You can switch between a 320 x 300-pixel monochrome or high-definition color LCD, putting readability and power consumption in your control.

Originality

Running around the lake, a marathon, or a trail, Casio has two new apps that link GPS, sensors, and data to provide comprehensive support for either running or trail running, and they’re only available on the WSD-F21HR. Each app allows you to customize the interface, so you get to prioritize what app functions you want to be displayed.

From altimeter to time or pace to energy consumption, the data you want is easily accessible. There are nearly 30 measurement functions. These apps add to a suite of seven original apps that track activities from trekking to skiing and snowboarding.

Flexibility

You don’t want your watch slipping or sticking when you sweat. The Pro Trek straps down with a soft urethane that is durable and flexible. With numerous band holes, you can precisely adjust the fit and increase the band’s breathability. So you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for purpose.

Wherever your adventure takes you, the Pro Trek will make sure you know where you are and where you’re going.
