Product Description

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.

In developing its own wristwatches Casio began with the basic question, ""What is a wristwatch?"" Rather than simply making a digital version of the conventional mechanical watch, we thought that the ideal wristwatch should be something that shows all facets of time in a consistent way. Based on this, Casio was able to create a watch that displayed the precise time including the second, minute, hour, day, and month — not to mention a.m. or p.m., and the day of the week. It was the first watch in the world with a digital automatic calendar function that eliminated the need to reset the calendar due the variation in month length. Rather than using a conventional watch face and hands, a digital liquid crystal display was adopted to better show all the information. This culminated in the 1974 launch of the CASIOTRON, the world’s first digital watch with automatic calendar. The CASIOTRON won acclaim as a groundbreaking product that represented a complete departure from the conventional wristwatch.

Casio transformed the concept of the watch — from a mere timepiece to an information device for the wrist — and undertook product planning based on this innovative idea. We developed not only time functions such as global time zone watches, but also other radical new functions using Casio’s own digital technology, including calculator and dictionary functions, as well as a phonebook feature based on memory technology, and even a thermometer function using a built-in sensor. The memory-function watches became our DATA BANK product series, while the sensor watches developed into two unique Casio product lines of today: the Pathfinder series displaying altitude, atmospheric pressure, and compass readings.

In 1983, Casio launched the shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch. This product shattered the notion that a watch is a fragile piece of jewelry that needs to be handled with care, and was the result of Casio engineers taking on the challenge of creating the world’s toughest watch. Using a triple-protection design for the parts, module, and case, the G-SHOCK offered a radical new type of watch that was unaffected by strong impacts or shaking. Its practicality was immediately recognized, and its unique look, which embodied its functionality, became wildly popular, resulting in explosive sales in the early 1990s. The G-SHOCK soon adopted various new sensors, solar-powered radio-controlled technology (described below), and new materials for even better durability. By always employing the latest technology, and continuing to transcend conventional thinking about the watch, the G-SHOCK brand has become Casio’s flagship timepiece product.

Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, and the radio-controlled function means users never have to reset the time. In particular, the radio-controlled function represents a revolution in time-keeping technology similar to the impact created when mechanical watches gave way to quartz technology. Through the further development of high radio-wave sensitivity, miniaturization, and improved energy efficiency, Casio continues to produce a whole range of radio-controlled models.

    Although an incredibly advanced piece of instrumentation at the end of the day it is still a watch and one requirement of being a watch is that it keeps consistently accurate time, since this watch has a 6-band atomic receiver it does just that as long as it is capable of receiving the calibration signal. I am physically located two hours from the east coast and have experience some difficulty with "manually" receiving the signal during the daytime but the watch easily synchronizes after midnight every night as long as I place the watch near a window. I have owned other triple sensors (older models), Suunto Vector & Core, Citizen, and other "ABC" watches but I have to say that I am most satisfied with the PRW-2500 for several reasons. First if you plan to use ANY "sensor" watch for accurate navigation, weather prediction, or environmental awareness be very prepared to be disappointed. ABC watches are NOT precision instruments to be used in that capacity but they are designed to provide the user consistent approximations of those features so equipped. I have found the ABC sensors on this particular watch to be very accurate, of particular note is the compass and baro, including thermometer. Reading other reviews several customers remark that the thermometer is not accurate while attached to the users arm...all I can say is "DUH"! It takes this watch approximately 20 minutes to acclimate itself (while removed from the users wrist) to the ambient temperature and provide the user with a very accurate temperature.Read more ›

    This watch seems to be the watch to end all watches. Hopefully it has killed my desire to buy watches.

    It does about everything a watch can do. I especially like the compass. I tested the compass in a few locations and it has not been off by more than +/- 1 degree even though the specs say +/- 11 degrees. There shouldn't be a need to recalibrate it as long as one applies magnetic deviation mathematically as it is supposed to be done. If not applying magnetic deviation using basic math you'll have to recalibrate it everywhere you go.

    It's a pretty big watch but does not feel large at all on the wrist. The band is also pretty comfortable, it's a soft band out of the box so no need to boil it like you have to do to make the rubber on G-Shocks softer.

    Additionally the buttons are all easy to operate, easy to use, and most functions are fairly self explanatory to need to consult the manual is minimal.

    However the included manual has pretty small print so if you need it you'd want to download a pdf copy of it from Casio.

    I ordered the Casio Men's PRW2500-1 Pathfinder Triple Sensor Tough Solar Digital Multi-Funtion Pathfinder Watch for Christmas 2011. I was very impressed with the watch and it comes packaged in a wooden box which is a nice touch. It is a fairly large watch but looks and feels great. I love the solar and atomic time features of the watch. A lot of the functions can be used without reading the manual which is useful for those who like to play with their stuff right away :) I haven't tested some of the functions, like temperature, for accuracy but I'm sure they work well within the limitations of the device. I think I should point out that, for example, if you need to navigate, the watch can help you but there is still no substitute for a good compass.

    Edit: There seems to be some confusion about Casio warranties. I received an Email from Casio on 6/4/12 below. Hopefully this will help clear up some things :)

    This is a great watch. It has similar features like any other Protrek (pathfinder) watches. Despite being a midrange watch (price wise), the features are amazing. However, you will have to calibrate the ABC (altimeter, barometer and Compass) sensor once you get the watch for more accurate readings. Overall, it is an awesome gadget with tons of features (I just use a couple of them). I strongly recommend this watch.

    About the only thing this doesn't have is a GPS. The auto-setting atomic time feature is really handy, since you know it's always perfectly keeping time. The screen is full of information, and the moon-phase indicator is fun (though maybe not actually very useful for most people). The barometer history on the main screen helps indicate weather changes. Solar charging should prove to be a neat feature, though I obviously haven't had it long enough to know - mine always reads fully charged. One of the simplest, but very nice, additions is the glass face - my last watch had a plastic face, but I don't have to worry about this one getting all scratched up. I was a little disappointed that the manual says you must take the watch off and set it down for an hour to get an accurate thermometer reading, making it practically useless - I've tried getting reading while wearing it, and it always reads mid-80's.
