Casio launches Android Wear smartwatch

Rugged smart-watch is water resistant and shock-proofed to military standards with two displays, extra buttons, pressure sensors and compass.

Casio has launched the G-shock of smart-watches with its first Android Wear device that can last a month between charges.

The Smart Outdoor Watch, which was launched at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, is the first true smartwatch aimed at the outdoors that can run apps but is waterproof and shockproof to US military MIL-STD-810 standards. That means the watch will be fine in water up to 50m deep – most smartwatches can manage up to 1.5m – and will probably survive a tumble down a rocky outcrop.

The watch runs Android Wear like the Huawei Watch, the Tag Heuer Connected and Motorola Moto 360, but has two screens within one display. The first is a standard round 1.32in colour TFT LCD touchscreen, similar to that found on watches like the Moto 360, complete with a flat-tyre shape. The second display, which is visible when the colour screen is turned off, is a monochrome LCD that shows the time like a classic Casio watch.
