The interface is very successful. His use is simple and fairly intuitive. The colors are bright and it is even possible to change the presentation dial. Many are available, they will suit the tastes of each.

It's a watch ultra tenacious, perfect for outdoor sports. In addition, the watch is waterproof. It is waterproof until 50 meters. So you can take it everywhere with you. Be careful though, this watch was not designed for scuba diving, it could be dangerous. The WSD-F30 can go up to one minimum temperature minus ten degrees. It is not suitable if you want to go hiking in high mountains, Russia or Canada.

A screen makes it possible to look at all the information thanks to the various sensors that are present on the watch. So we can access the compass, altimeter, barometer, tide graph, or the hours of days. The only missing one and one of the most important is the one for temperature.

One of the main features of this watch is that it offers the possibility of map his hike. So you can find on your watch and on your phone the route you have made. It is possible to add an end point to follow directly the GPS of the watch. However, it does not work in the city, not offering the opportunity to follow the path of the streets.

Interesting feature that allows you to track your progress without necessarily watching the watch.

Another of the advantageous features of this watch is the extend mode. It allowsoptimize the battery. When activated, the wifi and Bluetooth are no longer active and let only the GPS alight.
