Casio ProTrek Smart WSD-F20 In-Depth Review, Part 1: Get Smart About Your Place, #GetAtHome, In This World

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.

ISPO 2017 Roundup, Part 1: Garmin, Casio, TomTom, AxSys,…

Once again, the ISPO Munich was on.

Finally, I went there not just a random blogger who sorta-kinda works with brands willing to set him up with product samples, but as someone turning into a pro blogger looking for serious cooperations.

Suunto Kailash Review: Adventure Timeline-d [Updated]

Suunto has, for a while already, been right in that area of the sports and outdoors technology market where actual usefulness and luxurious aspiration collide.

Suunto Ambit(3 – and Traverse) Manual +3: Deleting Logbook

A question that keeps coming up about the recent Suunto devices (Ambit line and Traverse) is how you can delete the logbook.

Suunto Ambit3 Manual +2: Waypoint/POI Navigation

This may have been a very special case of a question, but it made me notice that I hadn’t shown the waypoint part of the navigation (with a Suunto Ambit) explicitly, especially as it uses either the compass or the GPS.

This is a feature/display that has disappeared from the Suunto Traverse, because it had confused many users, as well as from the Suunto Ambit3 Vertical, where the altitude profile tracking replaces it.

All About Those Verticals… Suunto Ambit3 Vertical Review

Hot on the heels of the Suunto Traverse, which looked as though Suunto wanted to address a more general outdoors audience and shift away from the Ambit line, they go all-in for a device that is more specialized than any they’ve made so far: the Suunto Ambit3 Vertical.

So, one-and-a-half years after the launch of the Suunto Ambit’s 3rd generation (in summer 2014), there is still (still?) no Ambit4, but the fourth addition to the line-up after the Peak, the Sport, and the Run – with a change in design to the bezel antenna of the Traverse, the addition of the vibration alerts the Traverse also got, and a change in features to focus very much on verticals (ascent and descent).

ISPO 2016 Recap 2: Fitness and Connecting Tech

When it comes to the technological side of fitness things, I did not find much that was of the greatest interest at the ISPO 2016 – but maybe I, too, am just waiting on Suunto’s next move to the Ambit4 / post-Ambit.

Such connecting tech which links physiological insight into one’s bodily being, physical location on this world of ours, and ourselves is fascinating, but not when it’s all the same – and recently, at least when it comes to wearables, it has all become too similar.
