A few things set this rugged GPS watch apart, but they don’t form a coherent package

from Coach Mag

The smartwatch experience and range of apps, no matter your set-up, far surpasses what’s available from traditional tracking companies like Fitbit and Garmin, but then the fitness tracking capabilities of the F30 are pretty woeful. While this isn’t meant to be the F30’s forte, the trend for...More

The smartwatch experience and range of apps, no matter your set-up, far surpasses what’s available from traditional tracking companies like Fitbit and Garmin, but then the fitness tracking capabilities of the F30 are pretty woeful. While this isn’t meant to be the F30’s forte, the trend for smartwatches has been towards offering more fitness tracking – I suspect because people weren’t sold on the usefulness of the smart features. The biggest omission on the F30 is a heart rate monitor, something that’s standard across all but the very cheapest devices now.

Has all the tools to make it great but needs software tweaks reach the summit

from Stuff

It’s got a clear display, GPS on-board and all the sensors you could want. Sure, the battery could be better and the screen brighter, but it’s pretty much there physically. What’s not there, still, is the software. Wrestling with the fiddly, unintuitive interface and separate apps is tricky...More

It’s got a clear display, GPS on-board and all the sensors you could want. Sure, the battery could be better and the screen brighter, but it’s pretty much there physically. What’s not there, still, is the software. Wrestling with the fiddly, unintuitive interface and separate apps is tricky enough when you’re sat at home. Doing so while you’re striding, paddling or, at your own peril, skiing? Distracting and frustrating don’t quite cover it.

Wear OS for the great outdoors

from Pocket-lint

Casio's third-gen dual-screen outdoors watch caters for a specific market well, but its dual-screen USP is no longer unique, while strong competition and lack of heart-rate sensor limit its overall appeal.

Probably the one to buy if you love the outdoors and want a Wear OS watch

from Android Headlines

Summarily, I would not be able to recommend the Casio PRO TREK WSD-F30 to the average user who wouldn't make use of the array of mapping and environment tool or features.

Summarily, I would not be able to recommend the Casio PRO TREK WSD-F30 to the average user who wouldn't make use of the array of mapping and environment tool or features. For those who spend a good deal of time outdoors or in environments where those features are helpful or convenient, particularly for long periods of time, there's probably not many, if any, better Wear OS smartwatches on the market right now.

Tracking all your adventures, for a high price

from Android Authority

Casio's Pro Trek WSD-F30 smartwatch is for adventurous outdoor types who want to reliably capture a record of their escapades. Don't buy the F30 because it is a Wear OS smartwatch, buy the F30 for its unparalleled GPS powers.

With its broad range of functions, apps, (particularly more so for android phone users at this time) and features, you are absolutely getting what you paid for and your money will not go to waste with this watch.  I personally feel that individuals who are enjoy outdoor activities will enjoy this watch more so than a normal smart watch consumer being that many of the watch features are geared towards outdoor activities.

A very different-looking sporty smartwatch

from PhoneArena

So why on earth would someone ever consider paying the premium for the WSD-F30? Quite simply, for the reputation of Casio being a premier watchmaker, but also for the precise tri-GPS, the better than average battery life, the dual-layer display for superior visibility, and the PRO TREK line’s r...More

So why on earth would someone ever consider paying the premium for the WSD-F30? Quite simply, for the reputation of Casio being a premier watchmaker, but also for the precise tri-GPS, the better than average battery life, the dual-layer display for superior visibility, and the PRO TREK line’s rugged nature. Some would question whether all of those reasons validate the higher sticker price, but if you have the disposable income, or if you’re serious about outdoor activities/sports, then by all means the WSD-F30 fits the bill.

New Atlas

A watch that excels in the great outdoors

from New Atlas

It's really only worth spending this much if you're going to make full use of those mapping tools and that military-grade robustness – if you are, the Casio Pro Trek WSD-F30 is worth a look.

A classy outdoors smartwatch for explorers

The strength of the design and the mapping capabilities more than make up for some other shortcomings in Casio's new outdoors watch.

Casio’s third Wear OS outdoor watch is better, but still leaves us wanting more

 If you're after a comprehensive outdoor watch but still want the features of a good smartwatch, then it certainly hits the sweet spot. But, there are watches that will give you better battery life in a slimmer design if you can bypass some of those added smarts. If those features are a priority for buying an outdoor watch, you might be better served investing in one of Garmin or Suunto's outdoor watches.
