    I like 2000 better, I have the Titanium version

    If you want lower cost, go with 1300.

    For this reason I recommend the 2000. Of course I have neither of those watches in-hand at the moment. I have a PAW1300, and I have a PRW5000YJ in the mail to me at the moment.

    I believe the 2000 will be able to display more at once than the 5000.

    Have you seen both in real life? I think that's much better than doing a poll... Does it matter what I voted? No, it's about your needs.

    I believe real life experience is important, especially since you asked for "the most information on the display" - it would surprise me, if you didnt knew that answer, when posting So there must be more into it, than only "the most information on the display"

    Happy choosing

    I haven't seen them both in real life as there are no shops that sell them the only protreks that i have ever seen in the shop is the 40 series, my only option would be to order both which i don't really want to do.

    Its not just down to most information on the display, i did also ask which is the most functional and has the ease of use, ie of course i would imagine the large digital display is more functional but if someone who has a 5000 says that is just as functional in the real world then hey presto, i was hoping there would be someone on here with both models that could give an unbiased view.

    Okay though I tend to say, that function- and ease-of-use-wise, they are quite close - except for the real world things, like readibility, button size etc.

    Anyway, I suggest you dig up some of Q6's posts. He's very knowledgeable about Protreks and he got the 5000, and a lot of other Protreks. Actually, I'm a bit surprised he havent posted in this thread

    Here's a couple:

    Yea... I think it's a tough choise - I like both, but they are too big for my wrists - have to try them some day. Basically, I like the analog 5000 the most, because it's analog and looks better. But the digital is tiny... But fascinated I am Maybe someday...
