While I initially liked the look of this watch, once I received it I realized I didnt like it nearly as much as the older styles casio made. The watch itself is not made for a larger wrist. It took a few weeks of wearing it to get used to the feel and even then the two spacers under the band are uncomfortable. After one year of wear the hands stopped keeping time. This is actually the second watch I have had. The first one had this same problem when I received it. Amazon kindly replaced the first. Now the second one has been sent off to casio to be fixed. Given the style, I wont buy another pathfinder or protrek until casio redesigns the band. I dont think I will buy another casio with the analog hands/digital combination either. Sorry to say this because I am a huge fan of my old protrek but casio did a poor job with the new design in my opinion.

The more I use this watch/instrument, the more I like it. The many functions require reading the manual to operate. But once you get the gist of what it takes to run each function, put the manual away and learn to operate through trial and error. I like the fact that it has a secondhand.
This is a fairly large watch, but not over the top big. But I guess that's subjective. The light will kind of eerily light up the watch face, and it works to tell the time only. You can't read the digital window with that light. The compass is quite accurate and is quite handy at my workplace. Temperature will be inaccurate if worn on wrist, but if you really must know the temp, take it off and place in the shade. I find the pliable rubber/plastic? wrisband to be comfortable with decent spacing between holes. All in all I would buy this watch again.
It's a nice time keeping piece and can withstand some punishment and submersion.

Went digging for quahogs yesterday, watch was submerged in saltwater for an hour or so. At first I was really hesitant to put this watch in the water because I just didn't believe it was really waterproof.
It is.

I have always been a watch geek. I had one of the first Casio thermometer watches in the 80s, a databank watch and then two Casio barometer watches when they came out (BM100W and BM200W). More recently I had a Suunto X9i. It was a decent watch with ABC functions (and GPS) but the face broke numerous times under warranty (to the point where they gave me instructions on how to fix myself with provided replacement) to finally breaking out of warranty. I like traditional analog faces and I also have a Citizen Navihawk ecodrive which I like, but it doesn't have any extras. I like the solar charging aspect and the luminous dials on the face-at night they are quite bright. I thought the light would be more electroluminescent, but it is an "old school" bright LED which works, but isn't as consistent across the watch face. I like to watch the barometric trends and took the watch skiing last week and was able to see the height difference between the tops and bottoms of the hills. As with most watches the thermometer isn't very accurate on your wrist. The first Casio watch I had in the 80s had a "wrist mode" which took body heat into account. I wonder why this feature wasn't continued with this or my Suunto watch. However, this isn't crucial. This watch may not be as hardcore useful for more extreme hiking as some of the Suunto and other brands, but I like its look and its ability to offer ABC functions on a watch that could be worn in more formal situations. But for daily wear and hiking every now and then I think offers a really good blend of function and form.

Love this watch. Like the features and I have to disagree with those that say it is hard to figure how everything works. If you are a die hard hiker, than you would need a bit more reading into instructions. But if you are a regular user, than you will get used to all the features in few minutes. The hand are luminous enough in the night time. Also, the LED light is quite bright to even see the LCD display. Those who complain about the temp and reading, read the instructions more carefully. The only annoying thing is that I do get hair caught up in the little plastic plates that are supposed to make the watch sit more comfortable on your wrist. That is not a big deal. I got used to it. After all, there is only so much hair to be pulled :)

If you don't mind screwing around with buttons and menus, this watch might be okay for you. If you just want something that looks cool, find another watch. The hands of my watch will not stay in sync with the digital time, despite resetting several times. I REALLY regret spending any money on this piece of crap.

I bought this watch when I began doing a lot of international travel. I bought it for these reasons:
- The Dial is uncluttered black and white, I can see it without glasses in low light
- It is really easy to set it to any timezone in the world. Big plus and primary reason I bought it
- The light is good and works (so many lights don't shine where they need to)

I almost never use the compass or altimeter.

So here is the rub, the strap has a particular design where it connects with the watch that causes it to grab hold of your arm hair and rip it out. Over and over again... day in and day out, amazingly painful and anoying. I have considered shaving my left wrist to cope with this, but I think that the watch is gradually accomplishing the same end.

I bought it last year on Sep -2015, but now the barometer/ thermometer sensor and altitude sensor are bad (display "....Err") I am living in Saigon - Vietnam, I brought it to the distributor of CASIO at Vietnam (Ankhanh Co.) for checking and they told me that they couldn't replace these 02 bad sensors. They told me that all sensors of this watch are integrated in the machine and If I want to use 02 functions, they will replace all of the machine inside the watch. So the replacement cost is at least haft of the price of the watch. I wonder that this CASIO watch is not cheap but the quality of the sensors are too bad with premature failure! I am a fan of CASIO so I am very disappointed! Please send me an answer email for this issue and a solution?

Its ok.. Quick run down of good and bad and ugly.

Good: Nice band, comfortable watch for its weight, strap locks well. Textured buttons for the ABC buttons a plus. Nice looking watch. Accessing functions are somewhat easy to understand. Water Resistant 10 bar. Barometer is good.. .1 +/- when compared to local forecast. Compass is close.. compared it with a suunto compass, and its a couple of degrees off... Altimiter , I compared the watch reading to a sign on turnigan pass where the elevation was 1050 the watch was telling me it was 1100. However there tends to be alot more errors when reading it at sea level.

Bad: Lighting isn't good for the watch, light is at the 6oclock position, the glow in the dark markings are not bright. Lower display is obscured by the hands during certian times of the day. I think the mode, adjust, light button needs a texture mark to locate button. Temp is off, its clearly reading around 15/20+F higher than actual ambient temp. I'll see if it needs to be calibrated, or if reading body temp.

Love this watch. Only negative comments I have after several weeks of wearing:

1) The band isn't as comfortable for me as I hoped it would be. I have thin, bony wrists. Not the watch's fault. The slots are simply not spaced out for my wrist. The band is either a little too loose or a little too tight.

2) The altimeter isn't the most accurate. I know the exact altitude of my home, yet this watch will vary from -200 ft below sea level to 1,600+. Obviously, barometric pressure changes with weather will also impact altitude measurements, as will temperature. But I was hoping for measurements that were at least within 1,000 feet of being accurate. From what I've seen, the altimeter is good at estimating altitude within 1k - 1.5k feet of your actual altitude. It says as much in the manual, so it wasn't a surprise and I have no regrets with this purchase.

Nice watch! Great looks, seems to be more accurate than the Casio adventurer. The led light doesnt do much but help you see the already glowing hands better so dont expect to set any digital settings without a flashlight. I still really like it. Its solar! The thermometer and barometer dont seem too accurate, you can adjust them to a known point but they still seem like theyre more approximate. This is vaguely important to most but if you were actually out in the woods trying to forecast the weather then you might end up getting wet. The compass is pretty accurate, i used it on my boat trip sailing down the Chesapeake and it agreed with my gps and gimble compass pretty well. Its reallllly tough, ive banged it a few times on the cars, the tractor and whatever and the only marks ive made on the inset crystal were by sparks from my angle grinder. I love this watch and usually wear it more than my Citizen. Another fine Casio product in my collection of them. 10 bar water proof, as if I could actually swim down to 330 feet!
