3.0 out of 5 stars Comparison to the PAG-40, August 6, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's PAW1500-1V "Pathfinder" Multi-Function Digital Watch (Watch)
So in 2001, I got my first Pathfinder watch, the PAG-40. It was great. The PAW-1500 is an obvious improvement in function. It is solar powered, water resistant to 200 m (although anyone who is diving 660 feet...I find hard to believe they would be wearing this watch, but whatever), atomic precision in time keeping, world time, tide/moon phases, and a countdown timer, and a silent mode (the last four are my favorite, most useful). I was actually hoping to get a watch that has all of these, including a depth gauge and GPS, although I know that GPS tends to suck the life out of watch batteries, at least this is the rumor I heard with the Suunto watch.

But here are my complaints. The back light function is not as brilliant as my PAG-40. This is a little difficult to explain, but the PAG-40 backlight actually lit up the characters/numbers, not just the background, which I always liked -- the PAW 1500 just lights up the background. Also, the compass function on the PAG-40, would be superimposed upon the entire face of the watch, whereas the PAW-1500 is just on the periphery, this is a major disappointment for me.

As far as looks. I was torn between the PAW-1500 and the PAW-1500 7T b/c the latter has a black bezel. But I didn't want the metal watch band. I do not like the silvery/shiny bezel on the PAW-1500. The face of the PAW-1500 is not as large as the PAG-40, which, I am sure the reason is that when you incorporate the solar power and water resistance down to 200 m, compromise has to be made somewhere (It's only about a 15% difference, but still)

This is a high functioning watch, but for aesthetics, I am not as impressed.
