And the real winner is … wait for it… the CASIO.
Bet you never thought I’d say that. Actually a week ago I bet I never would have thought I would say that. Normally I/we slate the Garmin 920XT for looking like a (1970s) Casio but this is Ok. It’s a nice Casio IMO. Here goes…
It’s an outdoors, hiking, smart, android-wear, activity, thingy. It does a bit of runnkeeper-running and cycling and somehow helps with fishing and tide tables and sunrise times.
It has 2 screens! apparently an energy-saving thing with one and super quality with the other and this is an Android Wear watch…the first use of it’s kind. We love a bit of innovation.
It’s got a sneaky little Bluetooth 4.1 (point one) interface. It looks rugged and well-made with good water resistance. Don’t sell your Suunto just yet though, with no GPS (doh! – presumably it will use your phone’s GPS) at £300 it’s coming in a tad high for what it is and it’s quite big (but light). The price will fall soon enough.
Q: Will I return my free sample from Casio
A: They won’t send me one
Q. Will I go out and buy one
Q. What prize does it win.
A. Err. I’m thinking.
Other contenders. No, not really. I’m glad I stayed at home.
