REVIEW: CASIO Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 (VIDEO; GALLERY)

REVIEW: CASIO Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 (VIDEO; GALLERY) | Sports Activities | Scoop.it
This is probably the best Android Wear smartwatch on the market. It looks good. It feels good. It's built to military-grade survivability standards to be water, mud, dust, and drop-proof. It comes with a suite of custom-made, proprietary tools and features...and they're so good that CASIO's Smart Outdoor Watch might be better off without Android Wear.
Leonidas Athanasopoulos's insight:
Casio status for a smartwatch. Top digital watch maker in the world just got better.

What can we learn from those who are able to stay healthy?
Leonidas Athanasopoulos's insight:
Foot landing in running, obviously is a major factor of health / injury for the runner. But it has two factors that are equally important. Vertical and horizontal deceleration. It would be more useful if this study presented details about each one of these two factors. Also it would be useful if there were some figures regarding vertical and horizontal "G"s.
