    Pro Trek recommendations please

    I only own 3 G-Shocks but have been enamored recently with the Pro-Treks but they all seem to look alike. Alot of the specs are the same and the sizes seem to be similar. Can someone direct me to a good source of information so I can see what each model does (and doesn't do)?

    Thanks.

    Re: Pro Trek recommendations please

    My all time favorite ProTrek is the PRG80. The best thing for you to do is just browse the www.casio.com site, either for your region or international.

    Basically newer Protreks do the same and they focus on land use. The Pathfinder series focuses on marine use where they have depth meters instead of altimeters. Notice that some markets are restricted to rubber straps only or vice versa, thus some of us have to order from outside our region is they are not available.

    Here is a comparison shot between a Citizen EcoZilla and PRG80YT. The Protrek is a bit wider, but they are very light watches.

    Re: Pro Trek recommendations please

    all casio protrek watches from prg 40 to 90 are good ,and my suggestions are following
    1...if you are ok with big sized watches then prg 80 or 90 are the best options as they combine altimeter,barometer,compass with world time ,countdown timer etc.if you are into atomic time keeping function then prw 1200 or 1100 are the best options.

    2...if you like smaller watches then prg 70 is the best option for you ,but remember that prg 70 has no world time function ,plus its barometer graph is 3 hourly rather than 2 hourly graprh in prg 80 ,90 and paw 1200 and 1100...also prg 70 has 50 meters water resistance compared to 100 meter water resistance of prg 80 and 90.



    prg 70 is given below


    PRG-70-1BV
    PRG-70-1V

    size of PRG-70: 56.0 X 48.2 X 13.9 mm / 68 g



    prg 80 is given below


    PRG-80YT-1V
    Titanium band
    PRG-80-1V


    Size of case/total weight
    PRG-80YT : 62.3 X 52.2 X 14.2 mm / 117 g
    PRG-80 : 62.3 X 52.2 X 14.2 mm / 77 g




    prg 90 is given below



    Size of case / total weight
    PRG-90 : 64.0 X 48.9 X 14.4 mm / 83g
    PRG-90T : 64.0 X 48.9 X 14.4 mm / 118 g

    Re: Pro Trek recommendations please

    Thank you gentlemen for the plethora of information!! I'll probably go with the PRG-80 because I prefer a larger watch and battery powered, but I still have some in person looking to do!

    And out of the PRG-80 models, the PRG-80YT in black looks the best of course

    hi chris,

    I agree with those members which have a PRG 80, it is an outstanding watch and a really HUGE monster

    my recommendation is to get a model with a metal bracelet, because it far more comfortable to wear then a resin strap. thats because the pro-treks are so huge, a resin strap just will not wrap around so good on the wrist. this might be no issue if someone has fairly large wrists, but mine are rather small, so the metal bracelet is much prefered in my case.

    although the PRG 80 YT is a great looking watch, I would also give this model a closer look:



    the PAW1200-7V is one of the most advanced pro-trek's, including 5 band atomic solar. to my taste the all greyish titanium look makes it real beauty IMO.

    I agree with this 100 percent. I have smaller wrists and the metal bracelet works a lot better for me with these watches.

    Wink Re: Pro Trek recommendations please

    Well, basicly all newer PRG/PRT models that are solar are OK. THe PRG-50(T) doesn't have a timer and stopwatch function, so I would recomend as first the PRG-80(T) or 90. If you like the extra Waveceptor function, go for the PRW 1100 or PRW-1200. Note that they are all pretty big in size, but they wear pretty comfortable and are very light (you won't expect that from such a big watch). The PRG-80 and up also have the world time function, very handy here on the Forum with everyone living in other parts of the world.

    Dingosrun has probably the most experience with the ProTrek range in the wild, so I recomendate his suggestions,

    Cheers,

    Sjors
