    Awesome watch with all the functions you need into one.

    I wanted a watch that had a negative LCD, atomic, solar powered, that also had compass, altimeter, and barometer. This had everything I wanted rolled into one great package. I just received the watch today and it looks and feels great. It's nowhere near as bulky and heavy as my previous pathfinder PAW-1100 watch, and it still has all the functionality of it. The negative LCD looks great and the illumination backlight looks awesome! It's no longer a turquoise color but more of a darker blue now. The display is easy to read and best of all, the functionality is pretty much similar to any of Casio's pathfinder/protrek watches. So for those of you who have previously owned an ABC watch, this functions and sets up just the same way. Since I just got it today, I don't know how well it's going to hold up to wear and tear, but I'll find out soon since this is going to be my everyday watch.Oh and don't be mislead by the "Blue" in the title/product description.

This review is from: Casio Men's PRW-3000-1ACR "Protrek" Sport Watch (Watch) I was hesitant to buy this model with the negative display because of many negative reviews.

There are times when I need to now if the barometric pressure is dropping, which way is North, etc.. I've been a user of these watches for over 19 years, this is my third Casio ABC watch, two previous instruments were of the Pathfinder series. The first I broke due to a 120vac electric shock, the case bonded to AC outlet terminals (!), and the next the case mounting point for lower band was crushed when a heavy door was closed on my wrist (saved my wrist-bones or so I believe).This time around, I wanted the negative display, which I think is very cool and not the norm, sometimes more a bit more difficult to see, but I like it very much. The back-light is effective and useful in low-light conditions. I am surprised more people don't comment on the display type, but then I guess I'm a watch nerd.

    Best Triple Sensor Watch I've seen, awesome for when SHTF

    I just got this watch, couple of points:Look/feel - This watch is actually very light. I have a G-shock GW6900, and it feels much lighter than it. The resin strap is much thinner and much less rubbery feeling than the GW6900. It's over-sized in order to be able to be worn over a cuff or something. The dial looks very sharp, very badass looking watch. The PRW-2500 the best looking triple sensor watch I've seen, especially blacked out PRW-1500-1A. It's overall a very good looking, utilitarian watch. 10/10Altimeter - I read some of the reviews saying that the altimeter was extremely off. My experience is much different. When I set about to check the altimeter, I had my friend's GPS handy as well as checking up on an altitude map I found online. The GPS was reading ~201m above sea level, the map read 194m above sea level, the watch read 205 meters above sea level.

    Awesome Watch

    I began to search for a watch online that complement my needs on the mountain, as I hike and climb a lot. This watch has it all, the altimeter is really great once you get to calibrate it. The Barometer I'm still trying to figure it out, and the compass comes handy for sure. So, I've read the manual several times, and as I just said, still trying to figure out some of the functions. I live at some place that Radio Signal is not supported, so I had to set the watch manually, also the timezone, which where I live is not supported either, and I think the Tide Graph is not going to work well. I've tested the Moon Data (moon age of the specific date and moon phase graph) and it is accurate even though I chose a different City and set it up manually.I recommend you to investigate a little bit more if where you live is supported for radio signal calibration, cause its dumb to buy the watch if it doesnt.I've used the watch for swimming, also had the chance to swim under sea water... 5/5 climber4life91 (OR, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great watch. Has (nearly) all the features I want.

    0 4/5 Jim - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I got this watch because I've been looking for an ABC watch that includes tide data. It does everything it says it does. All functions work as advertised. Two features that I wish it had:1. Sunrise/Sunset data based on home location.2. User should have the ability to have the backlight come on whenever buttons are pushed (if user so desires). The way it works now is the light goes OFF when a button is pushed. For example, when auto-light comes on, and I press Barometer button, light goes immediately OFF. Real pain when trying to read it in the dark. Also, the light has 1.5 and 3.0 second illumination times. There's a lot of data to look at; wish it had a 5-second option as well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 22, 2012

    Puzzled By Compass Markings AND UPDATE

    I saw this watch advertised in a sporting magazine and immediately fell in love with it. As other raters have commented, the watch looks great, and has usefull bells and whistles, albit perhaps not the most accurate, according to some of the reviews posted here. One GLARING erroneous marking that I noticed right off has me rather puzzled, and I'm thinking that there is perhaps an explanation for it that I'm not aware of. The watch has a non rotating, fixed bezel, which has the usual 360 degree compass markings, ie: 00 indicating North, is at the top 12:00 position, 180 indicating South, is at the bottom, 6:00 position. So far so good. Where it goes weird is all the other markings are on the wrong side of the bezel! Just to the RIGHT of 00 (North), are the markings 330, 300, and 270...indicating North-NW, West-NW, and West, at what should be 90 for East. To the LEFT of 00, are the markings 30, 60 90, indicating North-NE, East-NE, and 90 for East.

    Not for military use

    First of all, the watch is easy to use, lightweight yet looks and feels solid, well built, keeps time pretty well, all the functions are usable, and is at a pretty reasonable price-range, which makes this product a great bargain. Oh, and it is easy to read - but only in daytime. And here is the reason why I gave it only 3 stars: I bought it for military use as a primary watch, since it has all the feature I would need while being deployed, and I liked it a lot when arrived, but when the sun set, and we had to go out to the "wilderness", I realised that the sole LED on the bottom of the display provided barely enough illum to light up the hands (on which the luminous light fades out very quickly), but the display was unreadable, even though I would have needed all the information on it as well. And while wearing gloves, the "baro" button was being pushed against my glove, so it "pressed itself" while moving around or using my rifle.So in short:pros:-... 3/5 matt - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Product, Almost Lives Up To The Hype

    I just received this as a gift yesterday and thought I'd post my initial impressions. Should anything change drastically I will post updates later:I spent about 2 hours yesterday reading the manual, customizing the settings, and playing with all of the functions. I then used it all day at work, and came home today. Here's my rundown...World Clock - 4.5/5 Has one city for every time zone (or UTC offset, however you want to think about it), being near Washington D.C. I have to set my city code to "New York", besides that it has a very convenient feature of showing UTC time initially when moving to World Time mode, this is great for all those military and government types always wondering what Zulu time is! Would like to have a couple more cities per time zone.Sunrise/Sunset Time - 5/5 Works great, once you change your lat/long settings for your current location, times are within a couple minutes of any other information I could find online.

    Loving it

    0 5/5 Andy H (Illinois) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Casio Men's PAG240-1CR "Pathfinder" Triple Sensor Multi-Function Sport Watch (Watch) I have had a lot of watches in my time, and this one has a lot to offer. I don't have any problems with the size, I've never had the pinching that some talk about, and I know the altimeter is going to fluctuate with the barometric pressure (basic science). The main aspect that I love is that you can see the barometric trend graph in timekeeping mode. I can just look down and figure out if the weather will be fair or not. As a runner, I have a Garmin Forerunner GPS watch that functions better for running, so I'm not beholden to the chronograph or countdown time. I am glad I have them on this watch though. I missed having a countdown timer on my last watch. I still use a military lensatic compass when orienteering, but in a pinch, this compass will get you out of a jam. Sunrise/sunset, temperature sensor, alarms, automatic tilt lighting, all work just fine. I'm very happy with this product and would recommend it to others. With solar power, it may be the last watch I ever own. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 13, 2011

    Nice show-off watch, yet very functional - Black/Yellow - Please Rate!

    Have had this watch a little over a week, and decided to write an review for it.Just a brief comparison between two top-notch ABC watches: - the Core, and the Casio Pathfinder PAW-1500 Titanium, which I purchase a little over three weeks ago as well. I would say, the cosmetic design, the wealth of functions, the ABC accuracy, and the graphical display of the Core, is better than the Pathfinder. However, the built material, the readability, and the push button feel, is not as good as the Pathfinder.The display is in reverse format, meaning the background is in black, and the alpha-numeric letters are in silver-white. Adjusting the contrast in the Suunto hidden menu does help, but of course, still not as clear as the normal black letter on white background. No fault of Suunto, but just the way the design is.

This review is from: Suunto Core Wrist-Top Computer Watch with Altimeter, Barometer, Compass, and Depth Measurement (Sports) Have had this watch a little over a week, and decided to write an review for it.Just a brief comparison between two top-notch ABC watches: - the Core, and the Casio Pathfinder PAW-1500 Titanium, which I purchase a little over three weeks ago as well. I would say, the cosmetic design, the wealth of functions, the ABC accuracy, and the graphical display of the Core, is better than the Pathfinder. However, the built material, the readability, and the push button feel, is not as good as the Pathfinder.The display is in reverse format, meaning the background is in black, and the alpha-numeric letters are in silver-white. Adjusting the contrast in the Suunto hidden menu does help, but of course, still not as clear as the normal black letter on white background. No fault of Suunto, but just the way the design is.

    Core Wonder

    The watch works great for me. I would advise not to read to much into the other reviewers who have said bad things about the watch. Heads up guys when the weather changes and you return to a ref point; say home after coming down from the mountain the watch may show a different alt. if the pressure and temps have changed a lot. , thats the way it works as pressure changes so to will your base alt setting. unless you have the GPS version :) I suggest people read the book before talking and sounding silly. The Core is a great add on to my collection. I have the GPS version as well. This watch is a bit slimmer and not so G.I. joe looking. Good for on the trail or down town.UPDATE: The watch has started acting up only after 8 months of daily light use. The mode buttons work some days and not others. The TL and BL mode buttons all of a sudden stop working. I'm guessing the alignment with the pins you push and the contact pad inside the watch get miss matched. Really?

    Pretty watch. Overcomplicated user interface.

    I've had many Casio ABC watches, so I'm biased. For this review, I had Casio PAW-1300t and Suunto Core (green version - latest batch) which are used interchangeable or together for a period of about 2 months.1. The looks - the watch is big, but very conservatively designed. No weird plastic extrusions, just a simple watch with a big screen. It looks nice and professional. Casio looks a little more gimmicky, but Casio is still a solid looking watch (not like the older ABC casio watches that looked like spaceships)2. The screen - it's nice to have a big matrix screen. Although, it may seem like a square pixel matrix, some of the pixels are actually taller than others - It's confusing for the graphs (if one tall-rectangular pixel is added is it greater difference than a reqular square pixel). Considering that there are 3 patches of matrix screens, I wish Suunto would try to do more with them (more combined data screens). There are 2 rows of tall... 2/5 Edom (santa rosa, ca) - See all my reviews I've had many Casio ABC watches, so I'm biased.
