Casio Protrek Watches – Designed for Durability
Forget technicalities for a while. Let’s eye some of the finest materials going into the Casio Pro-Trek. One is CORDURA nylon fabric. Quite a few Pro-Trek-s got this for the bands providing a superior fit and strength. This special fabric from INVISTA is frequently used in outdoor gear and luggage – practically anything that undergoes the most amount of abuse while outdoors.
So wear it safely while rock climbing; it’s built to take the pain. It’s not like that you climb 300 feet (or some more) and see helplessly your watch (with all the vital info functions) swimming its way down an ocean of air. If you reach the top, you’ll find your watch alongside. CORDURA ensures that.
Pro-Trek, to be more accurate, is more of an outdoor gear with an usual timekeeping function; its large buttons and one-press accesses say so. Be it the digital compass, barometric pressure gauge or the altimeter; the thermometer or the sunrise/sunset data, you don’t need to go down the labyrinth to trigger the info. All the important information are literally at your fingertips!
But why a Casio Protrek Atomic Radio Controlled Watch when all you need is keeping track of time? Because smartphones are not always the best option. Draw it out, unlock; tap for the apps, select and tap again….too many steps. Here, something like the compass takes a single button press; the temperature, atmospheric pressure and the likes can be programmed to be displayed on the screen all the time. Or, dedicate a button to the one you need most frequently. But the biggest pleasure is you don’t feel – neither care – while you carry it. Now, smartphones are not half as hardy and handy.
Then, the battery. Smartphones got less stamina and last out max for two days (depending on use); the Citizen aqualand relieves you from ritualistic charging ordeals. Even the battery-powered models can rest your worries for a full decade; if not, for 8 to 9 years – under heavy usage. You also don’t need to put it off in-between smartphones alike.
The whole thing lies in the rapidly diminishing sensor sizes and other internal electronics miniaturising. This brought an entire paradigm shift within the digital sports watch category. The Casio Protrek PRW-2500 was slimmed down to 3000, compared to its predecessor, it’s more elegant. In the sense, the new lot are not chunky like the PRW-2500.
The PRW 3000 incorporated the Triple Sensor V.3 technology due to the reduction in its sensor sizes – at 5% of their former size. Power consumption also came down to 10% of what it used to be formerly (large cars need more fuel, right?) and the first Impressions were too good to ignore.
It takes a lot to reach the top but you should watch it that it stays that way, be it the fashion streets or the rocky terrains. Make use of Protrek’s style and functionally to cling on to either.
