Casio partnered up with ViewRanger, the outdoor GPS app and global community for outdoor enthusiasts, to bring more maps, more routes, and navigation features to Casio Pro Trek smartwatch.
The two companies have worked together on several projects over the past three years. This latest partnership brings more optimized features for CASIO Pro Trek smartwatch, including the latest WSD-F30 model that offers improved display quality and longer battery life within the smaller body so outdoor enthusiasts can explore with confidence in the outdoors, said a press release.
The ViewRanger app on the Casio Pro Trek smartwatch provides routes near their GPS location, and allows users to select and save more than 20 offline map styles. Using the app users can view maps on the smartwatch after downloading them without needing any smartwatch connection. In addition, the ability to record a track and view them on an offline map without a phone is an exclusive standalone feature for CASIO Pro Trek smart.
“Our new Wear OS app on CASIO Pro Trek smart creates an incredible adventure companion,” said Craig Wareham, CEO at ViewRanger. “Finding the right trail is quicker and simpler. The watch recommends trails near your location then explorers can download trail guide information with photos, descriptions, and maps directly to the watch.
