Casio today announced a new addition to its PRO TREK Smart series for outdoor enthusiasts – WSD-F21HR. The new WSD-F21HR is the first watch with heart rate monitor in a PRO TREK Smart model. The new model is an outstanding smartwatch for efficient, effective fitness training, as well as mountain climbing and trekking. The heart rate monitor is great for pace management during activities such as road running, trail running and cycling.

The heart rate monitor together with the wearable map technology enables wearers to continually check their physical condition, or navigate unfamiliar routes. Running and Trail Running menus added to the Activity app displays measurement data in real time. The user can optimize the data displayed by choosing three types of information such as heart rate, pace, and distance to display on the watch. Furthermore, because up to four screens can be set, the user can easily switch between them and check the desired information during the activity.
