The most distinctive specs of PRW-70 *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)
Fishing Timer (Know when they are biting. The watch displays a fish symbol when it is the perfect time for fishing)
Sunrise/sunset display (After entering the geographical location, sunrise and sunset times can be displayed for any given date)
Smart Access (the system for analogue movements achieves multi-functionality and easy operability simultaneously through a combination of multiple motors and an electronic crown)
Tough Movement (A CASIO-original thin analog movement made possible by hybrid mounting protects against damage and enables auto home position correction that helps keep you on time all the time)
Neon Illuminator (Illuminating the display causes the face, and hour and minute hands to glow with neon color, which looks great late on a dark outdoor night)


Official Marketing Focus from Casio

By adopting a metal layer structure in which the watch body is sandwiched between metal bezels and a lug-integrated case back, the size fits perfectly at your fingertips. In addition, we have adopted a square side button with a special pattern that improves the feeling of holding the finger and a button guard that prevents malfunction of the button, achieving high operability in the field.
In addition to a triple sensor that can measure azimuth, altitude, pressure, and temperature, it is equipped with a tide graph that reads the ebb and flow of the tide and a fishing time function. It has a water resistant specification of 20 bar to cope with unexpected bad weather and various activities. In addition, the model has been finished to expand the range of activities in outdoor scenes such as mountains, rivers and the sea.
