The upcoming smartwatch will retain many of the features of the previous one like the same United States MIL-STD-810G toughness rating as well as water resistance of up to 50 meters in depth. In addition, according to Casio, the WSDF20 will also come with an “anti-fouling coating” which will reduce smudges on its display.

Casio has slated the WSDF20 for an April 21 launch but has not specified a price tag for the device. Meanwhile, for WSDF10 users, Casio has scheduled an upgrade to Android Wear 2.0 for 2017, with no specific date to mention.
