The latest entry in Casio’s Pro Trek series is narrower and thinner than its predecessor; but, let’s face it: you’re not going for sleek with these chunky beauties. Instead, the WSD-F30 ($549 - around 39,200) is for people living in their own action movie, hanging off of mountains, diving into bodies of water, and yet still wanting to know the time. The WSD-F30 is waterproof to 50m, MIL-STD–810-certified, runs Google Wear OS, and includes Casio’s mapping solution that downloads colour maps directly to the watch. Extend Mode can boost standard 36-hour usage on a single charge to three days, flipping between the 390px OLED and monochrome LCD on the 1.2-inch dual-layer display. Lost in the woods? Then fire up Multi Timepiece Mode, which ditches the maps but retains timekeeping and sensors – including a compass for finding your way home.
