    Question for the experts...G-Shock equivalent of the PRW2500-1A

    What is the equivalent in terms of functions (or even more) in the G-Shock line of the PRW2500-1A ProTrek Pathfinder?? There is any??

    I'm seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on one but I would like to know if it has a G-Shock equivalent. Short of a GPS tracker, I cannot imagine having more functions than this watch and I love the look.

    Thank you!

    The latest Gravitymaster has a GPS position indicator in addition to bluetooth and regular G-Shock functions. Other than that, your best bet for a G-Shock that functions like a Pro Trek is the Rangeman or Master of G models like the Mudmaster.

    Why don't you just get the Pro Trek? They rock.

    Gulfmaster GWNQ1000 series cover almost all functions under the sun for Casio, as far as I know.
