The Casio ProTrek Smart WSD-F20, Casio’s second version of an outdoors smartwatch with Android Wear (2.0) was announced at the beginning of 2017. Sports tech authority DC Rainmaker called himself “perplexed” by it. I found myself intrigued, now that it includes GPS. Thanks to Casio’s PR agency in Germany, who provided me with a unit […]
Lots of people have asked me how I make my marathon videos (with a Sony HDR-AZ1 action cam: tiny, but alright quality, with such a wide angle lens I can just hold it away from me and vlog away… but that’s a different story). I have put a lot of thought into upgrading my camera […]
