    Thumbs Up While looking at PRW3500, I discoverted the SGW1000 (not 100 ... 1000)

    So I fell in love with the PRW3500 .... but then I found the SGW1000.. I love it even more.

    https://www.amazon.com/Casio-SGW-100...dp/B014YY8W3O/

    It's $100 cheaper too.

    One of my nephews has an SGW-1000. It's nice, but I prefer solar power, especially on a sensor watch.

    Altimeter and Barometer barely use any power at all... Pressure sensors are variable resistors. It uses no power to measure a resistor. The compass however does use a good amount of power.. but a 3 year life span is good enough for me.

    I'd rather have the 10 or 20 year lifespan of a solar ABC watch. Lower maintenance.

    From Rocat:

    In terms of the SGW-1000 (straight battery powered ABC watch), do not buy it. Period. It's a Battery hog and will have you changing batteries annually. We've talked about this watch when it first came out. While at a good price point, it just does not live up to the performance promised by Casio in my opinion. My proof is eBay, there are used SGW-1000 with dead batteries all over the auction site.
