Fishbrain and Casio Team Up to Bring Fishing Intelligence to Smartwatches
Fishbrain, the world’s most popular app and social network for anglers with more than 4 million users, today unveiled an integration with Casio that brings their crowd-sourced fishing data and interactive maps to smartwatch users for the first time ever. Available as a featured app for the Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20, Fishbrain’s new smartwatch integration gives anglers the ability to check local fishing maps, catch locations and more with just a tap on their wrist.
“While fishing traditionally has been considered an offline experience, Fishbrain has quickly become the one digital lure that every fisherman keeps in their tackle box,” said Johan Attby, CEO of Fishbrain. “The Pro Trek Smart is the definitive smartwatch for the outdoors enthusiast, so when Casio approached us about adding Fishbrain’s exhaustive fishing intelligence to their collection of smartwatch apps, we thought it was as a perfect fit.”
Fishbrain provides beginner to pro anglers with the tools and insights to fully enjoy the world’s most popular hobby while catching more and bigger fish. The app’s interactive map helps anglers find hot new fishing spots and see what other people are catching, with what bait and specifically where, and includes additional features like Fish Species Recognition, fishing forecasts, bait recommendations and more. Fishbrain’s partnership with Casio follows other high profile partnerships for the company, including a collaboration with C-MAP (the leading supplier of digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping solutions), a partnership with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, and others.
Fishbrain is available now as a free download for users of the Casio Pro Trek Smart WSD-F20, and is available for smartphone users on both the App Store and Google Play Store™. For more information on Fishbrain follow them on Twitter and Facebook, or visit fishbrain.com.
