Casio Smart Outdoor Watch hits Google Store for $499.99

Casio Smart Outdoor Watch

Casio’s latest Android Wear offering has arrived on the Play Store, and it’s gonna cost you. The Casio Smart Outdoor Watch is priced at $499.99, which will get you a very rugged watch with fewer features than expected.

The watch features a 320×300 color LCD with a monochrome mode for battery savings, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a mineral glass, resin and stainless steel case, and urethane band. It’s an outdoor-focused watch with resistance to up to 50 meters of water and it’s certified to meet military MIL-STD-810G standards.

Casio’s watch also features apps like ViewRanger, MyRadar, and Runkeeper along with custom watchfaces to make it more useful on adventures. One strange omission is a GPS chip. That seems like a pretty important inclusion for fitness and outdoor hiking, especially at a $500 price tag.

If you want to grab it in either orange or olive colors, hit the source link to pick it up. But at that price point, it seems kind of hard to justify. What do you think of the price on this watch? Is it worth it if you need a rugged smartwatch? Leave a comment!
