    ProTrek users - choice b/w PAW1300 and PAW1500 and why?

    newbie here and have an evolving (albeit short) want list and would like to know thoughts/differences between the Protrek 1300 and 1500. I've seen opictures of both and both make my plugs spark if you know what I mean.

    any difference in functionality, feel, reliability, ease of use? are both avail with or without a reverse display? the pictures I've seen of the 1300 only have the reverse. not that it's a bad thing, just curiouos about availability.

    Thank you!

    It really depends, which kind of watch you prefer to wear. The PRW-1300 is rather discreet compared to the "look-at-me" PRW-1500s. In terms of functionality, I think both are pretty similar, with the typical ABC-watch functions, only the PRW-1500 adds a tidegraph and moon phase, if you need it.

    If you like these watches, you might want to have a look at the new PRW-2000, pictures here.

    Ralphee, thank you very much! love the side by side pics in the thread you referenced. agree 100% with your perspective of discreet vs look at me and will have to take time to think about it.

    Queen6 is the expert - youll mainly find his posts on the Digital & ABC forum.

    There are a few big differences between the two:

    PRW1300
    slightly smaller, you may be able to fit under a shirt cuff.
    The digits actually look BIGGER than on the 1500. The screen isnt as busy.
    24 hour countdown timer. Very useful.
    The 'stealth' negative display versions are actually really clear. If you decide to get a positive version, the 1300GB looks best to me.
    The 3070B module is considered the best.
    The sensors on the 1300 are considered the best between the 1300 and 1500.

    PRW1500
    huge watch. Really stands out and demands attention.
    Only 60 minute countdown.
    200m water resist to the 100m of the 1300
    tide and moon graphs. You can cycle back and forth by date and time. Quite simple to use really.
    The display can look a bit busy but it does pretty much feature everything that Casio offer in a watch.


    Both display current time in all modes - something that few Gs do but that is really useful.
    If you really think water resistance will be an issue and you like the size, go for the 1500.
    For everyday use though and as a general sports watch, the 1300 is hard to beat.

    Thank you, Joker - great info!

    forgive my newbie question but what is a 3070B module?

    this is addicting and I might want to actually do some work while I'm at work

    3070B is the latest module for the 1300 (3071B for non "Atomic" PRG-110) and is thermally compensated (sensors), which aids the accuracy of the watches barometer & altimeter functions. The previous 3070 & 3071 modules were inaccurate under sudden temperature change.

    Of the two the 1300 is the better ABC, the watch has one of the most comprehensive modules Casio offers. The 1500 is flawed as a field tool, although it still makes a very good day to day multi function digital.

    You may also want to consider the upcoming PRW-2000 & PRW-2000T as this is basically an upgraded 1300, and will hopefully be a further improvement.

    These links should help...

    Hi Rockmastermike

    If you want a simple, no BS, answer, then...... get the PAW-1300!
