5.0 out of 5 stars Casio Pro trek PRW-5000-1ER, 4 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Casio Pro-Trek Men's Radio Controlled Solar Powered Triple Sensor Combi Watch PRW-5000-1ER with Resin Strap (Watch)
This watch is absolutely what I was after. I have had previous pro trek watches but the digital kind, until I lost it and find them very nice to look at, very easy to use, once you have read the manual and very robust.

I went for the rubber strap version of this watch, as last time when buying the digital version I bought the Titanium version. The Titanium straps are not robust and infact in 7 years I got through 4 titanium straps that have to be fitted by Casio at a cost.

The rubber strap is far better and will definately not pop open like the titanium strap. As for the functions, it has already been said on previous reviews. Everything you require for a hiker like myself. I particularly like the radio controlled time setting. Very easy to use and keep the watch accurate. No more battery changes is also a strong selling point and the watch goes to sleep at night. When I say sleep, I mean the second hand stops and the digital bit switches off to save you power as it is solar powered. Unless of course you are wearing it and then it does not sleep.

A very comprehensive watch, albeit expensive, but compare it to a Suunto and IMO it far outclasses the best of them.
