After being on the edge for a long time, I bit the bullet and purchased the PAG240. I am happy with it for the most part :)
Rather than do a full review, here are some observations/details to supplement other reviews:
-Pictures don't do the watch justice! Look at one in person if you can, or search Youtube. Far from being obnoxiously flashy, it has a handsome utilitarian/rugged look to it. In my opinion, silver pathfinders try to look pricier and will attract more attention, including unwanted ones. If you want full functionality, go with this.
-The watch weighs ~60g/2.12oz. That's 24 modern American pennies, or ~11 American quarters. The entire face (including side buttons) has the same diameter as the top lip of a standard soda can. I wear it every day without noticing its weight or size.
-It has an optional (default on) power save mode which turns off the display after 60-70 min of inactivity. This will only activate between 10PM-6AM. Simply tilting the watch a bit will wake it up.
-The timer can be set for hours/minutes (not seconds). The timer can count down from 24 hours.
-The sunrise/sunset mode makes good use of the overlay LCD slices.
-The compass can be adjusted for magnetic declination (1°resolution) and calibrated with bidirectional and northerly. It can also store an angle in memory.
-The display is crisp when viewed full on. It becomes hard to read at extreme angles.
-The rotating bezel rotates very fluidly. It's secured tightly to the face and won't slip once you set it.
-The alarm is soft, but uses a high pitched frequency (sorta like a smoke detector). I had no trouble hearing it wearing headphones playing music.Read more ›
I spent about 2 hours yesterday reading the manual, customizing the settings, and playing with all of the functions. I then used it all day at work, and came home today. Here's my rundown...
World Clock - 4.5/5 Has one city for every time zone (or UTC offset, however you want to think about it), being near Washington D.C. I have to set my city code to "New York", besides that it has a very convenient feature of showing UTC time initially when moving to World Time mode, this is great for all those military and government types always wondering what Zulu time is! Would like to have a couple more cities per time zone.
Sunrise/Sunset Time - 5/5 Works great, once you change your lat/long settings for your current location, times are within a couple minutes of any other information I could find online. No issues.
Compass - 4.5/5 Using my informal test, the compass seemed to be more or less accurate. Would probably get you out of a sticky situation if needed.
Altimeter - 2/5 Out of the box this stated I was about 420 ft above sea level, I am in fact only about 30. I told it my correct altitude as per the manual yesterday, today after coming home from work I checked it again and it now states that I am about 120 feet above sea level, sitting on the same couch. I'll try setting my own value again and see what happens. I guess as long as it's accurate within a hundred feet or so that's not bad for being on a watch. Shirely I wouldn't start landing a 747 off of its advice, but not bad.Read more ›
All the basic functions work well, accurately and are reasonably intuitive to use. The ABC functions were the greatest surprise. One of the other reviewers said he wouldn't land a 747 with this watch. Well I fly 777s for a living and not that you'd be advised to (and of course allowing for a few other variables, not least an unpressurised cabin, etc,) this watch is just about accurate enough to let you do it. I've worn it all over the world in the few months I've had it in all sorts of wildly different temperatures and conditions, and its altimetry is superb, especially as it's in no way supposed to be a precision instrument. Not just close enough, but absolutely dead on - perhaps I've got a freak example, I still can't accept how accurate it seems to be - so far.
The sunrise/sunset feature works well, I like the ability to show two time zones simultaneously - in fact there's not much I dislike. I supposed I'd have liked the stopwatch to be capable of more than 24 hours, and the alarms (there are five) could be louder - they're not quiet, but easy to miss in a noisy environment. It's unobtrusive enough for daily use, and I've given it a good hammering windsurfing with no problems to date. The price seems good on Amazon: I strongly recommend this product.

It's a good watch. Use it when I go climbing, so the altitude meter works well. Temp feature is based on heat on your wrist so not so useful. Read morePublished 1 day ago by T. Liu
