Review of the Casio Pathfinder PRW
We've happy reviewed quite a few Pathfinders on WatchReport, but this is the first one we've seen one with analog hands on it. Casio completely changed the look this time, yielding a watch whose complexity is less obvious. As a fan of analog-digital watches, this instantly became my favorite Pathfinder. There are, of course, compromises with the design, so read on to see if you agree or not.If there's any one company that continues to innovate, it has to be Casio. Their newest Pathfinder/Protrek, the PRW-5000, takes their kitchen-sink feature list and completely rethinks to design with an emphasis on analog hands.Let's start with the features:Solar powered.Atomic timekeeping, six bands: US, UK, Germany, China, Japan (2x).Altimeter, barometer, compass, and thermometer.Wold time, stopwatch, countdown timer, five alarms.Low temperature resistant down to -10C.Water resistant to 100m (330ft).Mineral crystal, fixed stainless steel bezel.Casio movement 5114 (PDF), with self-correcting hands.49mm across, 14.6mm thick, 85g on the 22mm resin strap.List price of $450.Please read on for the full review.
