4.0 out of 5 stars Good Watch, September 8, 2009

This review is from: Casio Men's PAW1500T-7V Pathfinder Multi-Band Solar Atomic Ultimate Watch (Watch)
Since Amazon already explains all the features of the watch I am not going to be redundant, instead I will try to provide my opinion on the general functionality and value of this device.

Pros: The watch is very rugged and durable. It is solar powered so there isn't any worry about replacing the battery every two years. Although rather large in size, the watch is not heavy and does not look ridiculous or strange even on my small wrist. It has a ton of features that work pretty much as advertised and could be very helpful depending on the activity.

Cons: Not a con per se, but more of a warning - some readings are somewhat inaccurate; altimeter's margin of error is +/- 100 meters, thermometer's margin of error is +/- 4C (while not on the wrist), barometer's margin of error is +/- 15 hPa. I have not yet been able to receive a signal to sync with the atomic clock and I have tried everything the manual mentioned. The compass can be accessed only for 15 seconds after which you have to keep pressing the button to access it again. I suspect this is due to battery life issues.

Overall: I wish I had the option to give it 4.5 stars; however Amazon does not allow it. My .5 reduction is for not being able to sync with the atomic clock, which is a rather important feature of the watch. As far as slight measurement inaccuracies, I am not deducting any points for that since one cannot honestly expect a $260 wrist device to provide 100% accurate measurements on pressure, temperature and altitude. Basically, the watch is exactly what it claims to be, no more, no less and I think it's fairly priced for everything that it offers, I definitely recommend it.
