DOVER, NJ, January 9, 2018 – Casio America, Inc. announced today a new addition to the PRO TREK Smart series of wrist watches for outdoor enthusiasts. The WSD-F20WE features a fluorite white color scheme inspired by crystalline fluorite. A limited edition of just 1,500 watches will be released worldwide in Spring 2018.
The WSD-F20WE is a limited-edition color model of the WSD-F20 series, featuring white as a base color to provide an accent to colorful outdoor wear. The fluorite white scheme is inspired by the color of crystalline fluorite, which is sometimes used as a raw material in outdoor wear. The white color features a clear-coat to give a deep multilayer finish with crystalline-like depth.
“We are excited to continue to expand on what consumers have come to know and love from our PRO TREK collection with a limited-edition release like this one,” said David Johnson, vice president of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “The WSD-F20WE is more than just a new color scheme; it’s a testament to the work we put in to provide the best for our fans.”
In addition to the new colorway, Casio is also releasing a new watch display called “Journey” that makes travel even more fun. Journey shows a map of the current location in the background of the analog-style watch display. When the user saves events with locations to Google Calendar, the watch displays up to three upcoming events and a map of the next scheduled destination. Users can save destinations beforehand from an itinerary, such as outdoor destinations or sightseeing spots, so that they always have a view of the next destination to look forward to and a map to guide them. Journey can also be installed on WSD-F20/F20S/F20X models.
