    Why a Pathfinder?

    I've been toying around with getting a Pathfinder, but some of the things written on this forum have confused me. I get the impression that the compass isn't that accurate. You need to remove the watch for 15 minutes to get a temperature reading. Other instruments would be chosen by members if they were actually in a situation where they needed the information.

    Given the above, why get the watch? Is it just for the looks? Is it just another watch with neat-o gimmicks? HELP ME TO RATIONALIZE WHY I NEED ONE!!!!

    thanks...

    I'd say the readings are pretty accurate, and as for temperature readings its the same with any watch, they have to be taken from the wrist or the body heat will affect the reading.

    They are solid, accurate reasonably priced watches that meet the needs of the price you pay.

    Watches are frickin evil!

    Cool Re: Why a Pathfinder?

    Most of the time, most people don't use the extra features on whatever they buy but it is always nice to know that you have them available just in case you need them.

    Well, the overwhelming logic of those excellent arguments has convinced me! I guess that I really have no other choice but to save up and purchase the watch.

    thanks!

    LOL, very logical reasons indeed....

    to be honest, I would be more interested in the 24h CDT, 24 stopwatch, plus solar, plus 5 band wave ceptor (a real novelty on casio watches !!!), than in the compass/altimeter/barometer/thermometer thing. unfortunately casio doesn't make an all black resin PAW-1300 yet, and I would black resin much prefer over the steel or titan version. usually I prefer metal a lot over plastic, but not in the case of a dedicated outdoor watch. and the green resin model won't work for me because after one day maximum I'm getting tired of that military look (one reason I wear my green mudman rather seldom)

    so I guess I have to wait and hope....



    regards, holger

    I quite like the look of my PAW 1300 the resin strap is a subdued green but the watch itself is black and that is what you notice.
