Casio Pro Trek Smart Wear OS watch has potential weeks-long battery

Casio revealed a smartwatch this week with Google Wear OS on-board - and metal outside. This smartwatch was revealed with three color options for exterior casing metal - black, blue, and orange. This is the sort of smartwatch you'd wear if you were risking your life to go on a James Bond-type adventure scaling the fully-vertical side of a jagged rock-bottomed crevice. It'll survive more inclement weather than you can.

Casio GZE-1 action camera looks like part of Iron Man’s armor

Casio GZE-1 action camera looks like part of Iron Man’s armor

You have to give Casio props for its latest camera. While most smart camera's are almost literal black boxes following GoPro's initial design, the GZE-1, a.k.a. the G'z EYE, looks like something straight out of a movie set. Iron Man fans might see some similarities in one of the super hero's props, but Casio's faithful customers might also see some resemblance to the company's G-SHOCK sports watches. That's no accident either, because the G'z EYE is, for all intents and purposes, the G-SHOCK EYE action camera.

Casio Exilim FR110H camera is a 1.9MP ultra low-light snapper

Casio Exilim FR110H camera is a 1.9MP ultra low-light snapper

Casio has rolled out a new digital camera for specialty photography and at a glance it sounds like a camera from years and years ago. It has a scant 1.9MP resolution, but Casio says that those pixels are extra large and meant specifically for gathering light in low-light situations.

As a member of its rather unconventional EXILIM family, the EX-FR200 comes in two modules that can be folded or split as needed, offering different modes of shooting and different ways to operate the camera.

Casio to host retro smartwatch museum exhibition

Smartwatches and wearables in general may finally be a "thing" today, but that might not have even been possible were it not for the one true originator. That's right, Casio.
