    Do the newer Pro-Treks have better / accurate sensors?

    I was looking for a Pro-Trek, and wanted a clean and slim watch, and I was looking at the PRG-110 line up, but I see that there are some newer models like PRW-3000 and all, some reviews claim that they have more accurate sensors than the old series. Is that true? I can just look at the outiside, but I know here are some experienced members who have idea about the hardware. So kindly input here, if you want.
    I wanted something like 11 mm, but the PRW-3000 series is 12.5 mm, so .... also all with Resin, it looks kinda cheap...anyway, if they do have accurate and better sensor then I will give up some other things for that.
    My current model is a PRG-60T, which I have been using for six + years, now want something fresh, full digital, and as slim as possible.

    Thanks.

    Correct, for instance the new V.3 sensor gives altitude increments in single meters instead of 5 meters as the older sensor did.

    Reaction times are significantly faster too.

    My old, much traveled, titanium PRG-60T. It's much lighter than it looks.

    Thanks. Only the Altimeter? I don't have much usage of that actually, but it is the Baro which I need more. Guess I need to go for the PRW-3000 series then

    And thanks for the photo, it is good to see someone else having that old bastard in good shape :)

    The faster reaction times are significant and the compass stays visible and working way longer, one minute I think. The G-Shock Rangeman and the upcoming Gulfmaster have the V.3 Triple sensor as well.

    It's amazing these old Casios keep on ticking, this still has it's original battery (forget how old it is, had it from new eons ago, maybe 2002?)
    It lives on a shaded window sill to stay charged with a pile of other old solar Citizens, Timex and ProTreks.

    All right. It's the PRW-3000 then. Could you tell me, is there any chance that I can attach a titanium bracelet to replace the Resin?

    And yes, she just keeps ticking. I have worn this, and travelled in lots of places in my country, at 8000 ft, in places of -1 or 2°, then two trips to UK, three to US too, and it just goes on and on. Yes, the battery has gone weak, but hey Sun comes up almost every day right

    PRW-3000T has a stock titanium band.

    Ah thanks. Sadly that is not available in my country, at least not officially. I will ask Casio to see if I can find it, otherwise I am going with the Cloth / Leather one, this one, PRW-3000B-5 - Watches - CASIO
