Casio is expanding its Pro Trek collection, designed for outdoors enthusiasts, with the introduction of the PRW3000-1. The PRW3000-1 utilizes Casio’s Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, which features a downsized direction sensor and pressure sensor for altimeter/barometer readings and thermometer, resulting in improved altitude readings and compass measurements, as well as a smaller case size than previous Pro Trek watches.
A feature new to the Pro Trek line is the PRW-3000-1’s atmospheric pressure trend alarm, which gives a notification in response to sudden swings in atmospheric pressure.
The watch also features Casio’s Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology, which synchronizes the watch with atomic clocks in the US, Germany, the UK, China and two in Japan based on the user’s home city setting. Like other watches in the Pro Trek collection, the PRW3000-1 is powered by Casio’s Tough Solar Power, which can store up to 6 months’ worth of energy, and conserves power when not exposed to light for a certain period of time.
The PRW3000-1 will be available in September 2013 retailing at $300.
