Casio ProTrek PRW-2500 Watches

The digital ProTrek series with a large and informative display. The main feature of the dial is its “two-layer”, one layer shows the result of the compass, and the second is responsible for everything else. Several blocks of information are simultaneously placed on the screen – all the necessary data is nearby and at the same time. On a rotating bezel, intermediate marks of the cardinal points are applied – for more accurate positioning using a digital compass. To determine the air temperature and its pressure in the watch, a triple sensor is provided. The tide chart and moon phase data are very useful information for backpackers. Electroluminescent backlight – evenly illuminates the entire dial. A solar battery is responsible for powering the PRW-2500, which does not need to be replaced every 2-3 years. Time is synchronized automatically by a signal from the radio towers.

The most distinctive specs of PRW-2500 *Editorial
— 200-meter water resistance
(good for swimming but not for deep diving)
— Low temperature resistant (stable operation of the watch is guaranteed even at a temperature of -20°C)
— Radio-controlled Watch; Multi band 6 (additional way for time sync. This watch receives time calibration radio signals that keep the displayed time accurate)
— Tough Solar (CASIO’s original solar-charging system converts not only sunlight but also light from fluorescent lamps and other sources into power)
— Digital compass (measures and displays direction as one of 16 points)
Thermometer (can measure and display the outside temperature in a range from -10 C to 60 C)
Barometer (measures the air pressures and displays tendencies in the weather)
Altimeter (The electronic mechanism “estimates” the altitude based on the air pressure)
Moon Data (The moon phase indicator shows the current moon phase based to the earth)
Tide indicator (Once the high tide time has been entered for a selected location, the watch can display the low and high tide phases at this location on any given date)
Direction Bezel (This bezel can be used to determine approximate directions)
Yacht Timer (The perfect prerequisite to every regatta and yacht race: The countdown start time can be set within a period of 1 to 10 minutes, usually 5 minutes. An audible signal sounds once after every elapsed minute. For the last ten seconds before the start, the signal sounds every second)
Duplex LCD (Giving you a constant overview: Elements on the display are distinguished from one another using colour. This is achieved using different coloured layers placed on top of one another, allowing information to be displayed more clearly)


Official Marketing Focus from Casio

Introducing the new Pro Trek PRW2500, a high performance tool developed under the supervision of meteorologists to take on challenging environments. Like all triple sensor Pro Trek models, the PRW2500 features easy-one-tough operation of its Altimeter/Barometer, Compass and Thermometer. A reconfigured duplex LCD layout provides optimal upper & lower LCD layout for information at-a-glance when you’re on the go. In addition to numerical and trend graph data, unique arrow icons help to indicate characteristic barometric pressure patterns. 200 meter water resistance has also been employed to ensure strong water resistance for river trekking & rafting where one would encounter strong water pressure. The addition of tide & moon graph/data provides convenient information for sea kayaking and fishing. Titanium band digital watch with black face.
