    Help me choose watch with sensors (Casio?)

    Hi,

    I need help to choose a watch with temp, barometer and compass sensors. It has to be water resistant (40m), be usable in the dark and preferrable digital with solor charging. I would like to keep the price around $200-300 or so.

    I have my eye on the Casio ProTrek series and in particular the PRG-110B-3VDR. But this choice is just because it looks the best. I have absolutely no idea how all those ProTrek watches differ - they seem to have the same specs? What does "110B" and "3VDR" stand for for example? Is my choice an old model? I cant find it on any Casio websites...

    So basically is my choice in Casio alright? And is my choice of the "PRG-110B-3VDR" alright? Or could I do better with another mark/model? I'd really appreciate any comments...

    I have the PRG-130T (titanium case and bracelet):



    Has all that you want and the price is even lower if you don't mind buying from Hong Kong or Singapure (I got mine from HK). VERY nice watch, but it has two problems IMO: the bezel is too loose and (specially) the light button is hard to press at night.

    It's also quite big on the wrist:



    For me it's ok, but it could be too big for some.
    Cheers!

    If you can give up the temp sensors Maratac has a nice one for around $100

    That looks a lot like this Timex!

    It is a timex, they partnered with Maratac to make the AQC watch, I think they are the same watch just with a Maratac logo and normal lugs to accommodate different straps (i.e. a Zulu).

    You won't be dissapointed with any of the ProTreks.

    I have an older model prg 60 ani-digi, it's a fine gadget watch but with the usual caveats of all temp sensing watches and adjustments for magnetics declination. I can't think of any reason not to have one, it has always been a off-beat favorite of mine.
