Casio ProTrek PRW-6000 Series

Representative of the ProTrek travel line with top-end functionality for backpackers. The display protects the durable steel bezel – you can forget about scuffs, and the case looks more powerful due to the metal. The ribbed structure of the buttons helps you to press them easily and quickly even with coarse gloves. Ana-DJ display speaks of the “technological” PRW-6000 – here the module is even more advanced in contrast to digital counterparts. We are talking about a smart crown, Smart Access, which greatly simplifies access to the functionality of the watch. A triple sensor for environmental performance – barometer / altimeter, thermometer and compass. The time is automatically corrected by a signal from the radio towers, and the solar battery allows you to use the watch for a very long time without fear of battery discharge. Tough Movement technology will automatically correct the position of the arrows in case of their incorrect movement. On the back of the strap there are special inserts for a more accurate fit of the wrist. There is also a basic set of features – a timer, an alarm clock, a stopwatch and world clock.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

New addition to the PRO TREK lineup of analog-digital Triple Sensor Version 3 models.
In addition to sensors for taking bearing, altitude, and barometric pressure readings, the wearer is alerted to significant changes in barometric pressure by a beeper alarm and by an indicator on the digital display.
An auto hand shift feature momentarily moves hands away from digital readouts when you check displayed readings, to make them easier to see. Other features include a dual LED illumination system for the face and digital display, Smart Access, Tough Solar, radio-controlled timekeeping and more. Everything about these watches is designed and engineered to make them the ultimate in ease of operation and reliability.
All this multi-functionality is packed into a 12.8 mm slim configuration.
