This review is from: Casio Men's Pathfinder Triple Sensor Altimeter/Barometer/Digital Compass Watch #PAG40-3V (Watch)
My first one last through 3 assignments in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. Half the team wore this watch and the other half the Suunto Vector. Must of us owned both. I found the Casio Pathfinder easier to use.
The only issue I had with my watch is sometimes it went into conflict and went through all the modes and would not stop until the batteries were removed. I was the only one that had this issue.
We worked in extreme enviroments and the watch took a beating. Sand Storms, attacks of all types, crashes, high heat 125 - 130 degrees. Cold below zero for long periods. All the features were a great asset to all of us. We often compared data with our other instruments like GPS and other sensors we had. The watch was close.
The large dial is a plus in the field. I would still have the first one but when I took it to a watch shop for new batteries, it was not sealed properly and on a swim exercise it leaked.

That is the Auto Display Function feature. You can turn it on and off pushing the Mode button for 3 seconds until a beep is heard.

I received one for Christmas - based on your great review. Also, on the display cycling, they've included info about it in the packaging now, obviously you weren't the only one to experience this. I quoted your review on a recent "Hawksbill Cabin" blog post - check the tech-watch geek label. Thanks for a great review, it was the decider for me!

I read your post on Hawksbill Cabin. Great job. I am glad my review was read. The more you play with the watch the easier it is to use. I still use my Pathfind anytime I am in the woods or on the water. My brother a Fire Fighter saw a pic of me in Iraq with my bosses and team mates, he noticed the patherfinder and purchased one. I noticed on the news of Hati some U.S. special operators wearing Pathfinders. Good Luck with yours.
