We seem to be seeing a lot of outdoor/sports watches right now (must be the hot weather), the latest of which is from Casio, which has introduced the Pro Treck and Sea Pathfinder outdoor watches.
The Pro Treck watch is ideal for outdoors, because it’s powered by a tough solar power system, so no need for batteries. It’s got an analog-digital configuration means, so you always check the time even while viewing digital data, while a trio of sensors provides up-to-the-minute readouts of barometric pressure and altitude (-700 to 10,000 meters), air temperature, and bearing – just the thing for budding adventurers. It’s also water resistant to 100m, low temperature resistant and also features a 1/100 second stopwatch and a daily alarm. Complete with its titanium bracelet, it’s available for around £240.
As the name suggests, the Sea Pathfinder is Casio’s marine watch, ideal for anyone who likes a spot of boating, diving or any other water sport. The Radio-controlled, solar powered Sea-Pathfinder is multi-region, allowing you to switch between transmitters in UK, USA, Japan and most of mainland Europe. Luckily for a water watch, it’s water resistant to 100m and features a digital compass, barometer, thermometer and depth guage, along with the world time, a countdown timer, 1/100 second stopwatch, 5 daily alarms and an electro-luminescent backlight.
The Sea Pathfinder is available now for around £200.
