All eyes on the summit — with the WSD-F20

Every adventure needs a reliable partner

For its latest project, the experienced mountaineering team from CLEARSKIES chose an extremely tough expedition: ascending Mount Everest. Mount Everest in the Himalayas is the highest mountain in the world at 8848 m. In April and May 2017, exhibition leader Hannes Gröbner and his small team climbed the mountain's south side — equipped with the GPS-enabled WSD-F20 smart watch.

All of the equipment and provisions are carried up the mountain to camps 1 to 3 under the team's own power in several trips. The backpacks often weigh more than 20 kg, which at this height forces the mountaineers to use all their strength. By 2016, Mount Everest had been climbed almost 200 times without oxygen.

CLEARSKIES and PRO TREK Smart — the perfect team

"We were fortunate to be equipped with two brand new PRO TREK WSD-F20 smart watches from CASIO. In addition to the altimeter, barometer and compass, the watches have a built-in GPS system that we can use to determine our exact location. The maps and satellite images (Google Earth) allowed us to view the individual houses in Namche Bazaar or the tents in the different camps on Everest on the smart watch. It's a really great watch that we loved taking on our trip and our ascent!"", says Hannes Gröbner of the WSD-F20. The WSD-F20 worked perfectly even at freezing temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius.
 
 

PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20

A tough design that is perfect for the mountains: The robust and waterproof PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20 is equipped with energy-efficient GPS as well as full-colour offline maps that can be loaded onto the smart watch before the start of your trip, meaning you can use the maps without a mobile phone signal or an Internet connection. You can switch between all kinds of face designs to display information regarding your location, the weather or hiking data — very useful features when trekking or mountain climbing.
