Product Description

The PRG550 series is a 3 hand analog watch model with an LCD window. The triple sensors measure compass bearing in compass mode the second hand becomes the compass needle pointer; altitude/atmospheric pressure and temperature. The multipurpose second hand points towards magnetic north and can indicate the latest change in atmospheric pressure or show a change in altitude from a pre-selected location; depending on the function selected. While the LCD displays numerical sensor information such as compass direction angle value; altitude; atmospheric pressure; and temperature; the PRG550-1A1’s full auto LED light activates with just a flick of the wrist and operates by Casio’s Tough Solar Power technology; allowing readings to be accomplished with ease. Casio’s Tough Solar Power technology adds to the PRG550 series efficiency by allowing the time piece to power down when not exposed to light for a certain period of time; thus conserving energy. Black resin band analog and digital watch with blackface.

Casio

With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.

Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

    I saw this watch advertised in a sporting magazine and immediately fell in love with it. As other raters have commented, the watch looks great, and has usefull bells and whistles, albit perhaps not the most accurate, according to some of the reviews posted here. One GLARING erroneous marking that I noticed right off has me rather puzzled, and I'm thinking that there is perhaps an explanation for it that I'm not aware of. The watch has a non rotating, fixed bezel, which has the usual 360 degree compass markings, ie: 00 indicating North, is at the top 12:00 position, 180 indicating South, is at the bottom, 6:00 position. So far so good. Where it goes weird is all the other markings are on the wrong side of the bezel! Just to the RIGHT of 00 (North), are the markings 330, 300, and 270...indicating North-NW, West-NW, and West, at what should be 90 for East. To the LEFT of 00, are the markings 30, 60 90, indicating North-NE, East-NE, and 90 for East. It's easier to see if you just click on the picture of the watch for the enlarged view. See the 270 at 3:00? Should'nt that be 90? And so on. It's the same in the magazine pic. I never noticed it in the pics, only when I had the watch in my hand did it jump out at me. I apolgise in advance if I'm missing something here regarding electronic compasses...I tend to beleive that this has to be the case as something this glaring would have been addressed by now. Otherwise, appears to be a solid watch, and I would have given it at least 1 additional star had it not been for this quirk.

    UPDATE: 1/4/2013...I'm giving the watch an add'l star (to 4 from 3)as the issue with the compass markings has been resolved. See post from Victor Diaz in the comments section for the explanation.

    First of all, the watch is easy to use, lightweight yet looks and feels solid, well built, keeps time pretty well, all the functions are usable, and is at a pretty reasonable price-range, which makes this product a great bargain. Oh, and it is easy to read - but only in daytime. And here is the reason why I gave it only 3 stars: I bought it for military use as a primary watch, since it has all the feature I would need while being deployed, and I liked it a lot when arrived, but when the sun set, and we had to go out to the "wilderness", I realised that the sole LED on the bottom of the display provided barely enough illum to light up the hands (on which the luminous light fades out very quickly), but the display was unreadable, even though I would have needed all the information on it as well. And while wearing gloves, the "baro" button was being pushed against my glove, so it "pressed itself" while moving around or using my rifle.

    So in short:

    pros:
    - light, yet durable
    - easy to use all the functions
    - easy to read in a well-lit environment
    - not too bulky, looks okay on an average sized wrist
    - not expensive considering the features it provides

    cons:
    - without an exterior light source, it is unable to use all the functions at night
    - the buttons are too easy to push imo

    So I recommend this product to anybody, who wants a well-priced watch for everyday/outdoor use, but does not need to use it covertly at night.

    (sorry for my English)

    I've owned several Casio pathfinder watches but this one is easily the most functional. Although not particularly luminescent, there is a light button which illuminates the watch face well. I also Like the analog functions for time, altitude, barometric pressure and compas. I am somewhat visually challenged so I appreciate the analog readings. The only shortfall that I see is that the digital window for the stopwatch and alarm functions is not lit but that is of little consequence. Although I've only owned the watch for a week, I am most satisfied and recommend it highly. Solar powere and atomic timekeeping should keep it accurate for many years.

    I've had the watch for about a week now, and I am loving it. The altimeter works alright, the barometer and compass seem spot on. My only complaint (a small one) is that the watch does pinch arm hairs every so often, but thats something I can get used to. Overall, great piece, seems pretty sturdy and well constructed!

    I have owned several Casio triple sensor watches, a Suunto and multiple Timex also. My most recent being the 2500 series Pathfinder. I must say, THIS is the best one in many ways. My wife bought this for our wedding anniversary (Thanks Honey!) It looks great! I have never been much for aesthetics, but this is honestly the only watch I have ever gotten compliments on. The back- light is unreal!! It is like having an actual flashlight, it is the most used feature. The glowing hands lose the bright "Glow" fairly quickly, but once your eyes adjust to the dark, you can see the fainter glow of the hands all night long. When using the "flashlight" feature, it is difficult to see the small lower LED display and sometimes the hands block the LED screen. A little nitpick really. I love the way the hands maneuver around quickly and with such precision when using the compass/altimeter/barometer/world time, etc. Not only is it very functional, but it is very tough. I used it while stump-grinding, running a chainsaw, swimming, snowplowing, whatever. I highly recommend this timepiece.
