Hey, firstly, you people were fantastic help when I got a g-shock Mudman G9000-3 few weeks back, thanks for all the advice. It arrived the other day and I'll post pictures as soon as I can get my hands on a digital camera (mine got stolen a few months back). I love the g-shock, it's a fantastic beater.
I'm keen to satisfy my urge to spend my most recent pay (just pulled the trigger on a Garmin GPSmap 60CSX), and I'm tossing up between a Casio Pathfinder probably a PRG-110B-3V or a Suunto Core.
Things that are in the Suunto's favour:
Storm warning alarm
Sun up and sun down times
More accurate measuring of atmospheric pressure
Better logging abilities
However things that concern me about the Suunto are battery life and durability. I can't seem to find a really solid answer on how long the batterly lasts, and if i can treat is as rough as i would a Casio. It's also more expensive which weighs in the Casio's favour.
Things that are in the Casio's favour:
Solar (this is a very very big one)
Looks much tougher and more rugged
Can anyone help with this decision?
Does the Casio have a storm alarm I'm not aware of and sun up and sundown times?
