5.0 out of 5 stars The Small things, April 22, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's PAW2000-1CR Pathfinder Digital Multi-Function Resin Band Watch (Watch)
so, like you i read every review i could on this watch..which one to get, its alot of money, so i kept reading everything i could, the PAW 2000 is excellent, 1st the bad things...the altimeter isnt really accurate, it works on air pressure, so at my house my altitude can change up to 100 feet due to weather conditions...no biggy though...i can reset it manually(20ft increments)just have a reference to zero it in at(find online easy). 2nd is the radio updates it recieves at night...its kinda a hit and miss depending on weather conditions( and where you put it at), i live in washington state, kinda far from fort collins CO, but mine updates about 3 times a week, i also have manually updated it during the day and takes about 10 minutes and afew trys(has a indicator on your signal strength). 3rd the LED backlight needs to be alittle longer, you have a option of 1 sec, 3 sec...a 5-8 sec would have been nice, especially when you trying to use one of the ABC functions at night and they have a slight delay to get thier measurments. 4th temp doesnt get accurate readings unless the watch is off your wrist, or temp is higher then 90F, takes about 10-20 minutes to get accurate reading(+/- 1-3 degrees according to airforce base weather station a mile away). 5th alarm could be alittle louder
6th very big instruction manual, take it 1 step at a time, time zone 1st, next set you lat/long as close as you can(comes with lat/long for major cities)shouldnt be hard to find, this will get you your sunrise/sunset times(which is why i bought this over the 1500...and accurate with no preprogramming by user except for lat/long)also, setting for GMT(zulu) wont work with daylight savings time...so pick another city(lisbon/paris) if you use GMT for second time zone like i do or you'll be a hour off...thats about it...all the measurements except for mentioned above are fairly accurate, has 5 alarms, chimes at top of hour, 12/24 hour format, timer(24hour coutndown) stop watch, and barometric grapgh that auto updates every 2 hours letting you get a good idea on how weather is gonna be....but remember...its a watch..used to tell time, which it does accurately..its nice saying...im right your wrong, my watch is synced off a atomic clock:) great buy, no regrets...hope this helps:)

Hey, does this watch read temperatures? Couldn't find it anywhere in the description.

y, it gives ambient temps. Note: On one's wrist, the temp is higher than in the surrounding air.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 14, 2010 8:18:24 AM PDT
you need to take the watch off and let it sit for around 10-20 minutes for a reading(confirmed temp with local AFB 1 mile away, 1-2 degrees difference). while on your wrist will give inaccurate readiings unless the temp is greater then your skin temperature so above 80 degrees

Hey what's the difference between the 1500 and the 2000, I don't know what one to get, are the instruments better in the 2000? Is there sales people who would know these things. If there is do you have a number to call. Thanks for your time.
