Casio Pro Trek F20
Casio designed the Casio Pro Trek F20 to work for those enamored with the outdoors. Hikers, climbers, and other outdoor enthusiasts can harness the power of the sun to use the watch, automatically sync workouts, and more. The F20 is a great outdoor fitness watch. It has a large LCD screen that’s easy to read. Because of its larger screen, users can see a lot more data at a glance.
The Casio Pro Trek F20 packs in a lot of features at an affordable price. Interior sensors like the altimeter or barometer are perfect for tracking outdoor activities. A compass is even included to help you navigate as you move. A watch made for the outdoors needs to be tough, too, and the Pro Trek F20 doesn’t disappoint in this area. It’s designed for use in tough conditions and works well even when the weather drops below zero. It can be taken in the shower but there’s room for improvement here since it’s more water resistant than it is waterproof.

A pressure sensor on the watch helps you to keep track of your altitude and keep an eye on air pressure. This is important for those hiking mountainous terrain.
You can use different applications with the watch and can download additional activity profiles depending on what interests you. There's even an app for fishing!
If you download the Smartphone app, you can get a read on your direction, your altitude, and a variety of other metrics.
Another neat feature is the ability to view maps on the watch itself. This allows users to navigate trails with ease.
Step counting is similar to most other trackers, some users might find it estimates a bit too high or produces a lower number of total steps than expected.
Turning off both GPS and Bluetooth is possible and saves battery power.
To utilize the app and all of its features, an account is necessary, but the app itself is free. The app allows users to get a full glimpse of their data and stats.
Some reviewers even mentioned that they dropped their unit and it resulted in no breakage or scratches. The mineral glass screen is lightweight but is tough as nails.
At 1.32 inches (and a resolution of 320x300 px) the color screen is quite sharp. In direct sunlight, it's a bit tough to read, though.
The watch also features three buttons on its side. One allows users to switch through the menus on the device. Another launches the GPS and gives users access to the compass. Another button allows users to access their daily training data.
