    Stolen Suunto need advice on a new ABC

    Hi everyone,

    Recently my beloved Suunto core was stolen from me and I am without an ABC watch. This is something that I actually used being in the military. Now I am in the market to buy a new one, but dont want to spend the money to buy the exact same watch that was taken from me. I have looked at others but wanted some advice on what you guys thought would be a good replacement. The instruments need to be accurate and I want my price range to be 100-300. Also water resistance is a must.

    Here is what I have looked at so far;
    Casio PRG260
    Casio PRW2500
    Suunto Vector (worried about the plastic face though)
    Casio PAW1500

    Thank you all for the assistance.

    I like the Vector.

    Ive heard good things but am hesitant on its durability. Has your vectors face taken any damage?

    No. They were fairly popular in the Army too.

    I may have to check it out, but am curious about its comparison with some of the newer protreks.

    Check out the Casio G-Shock GW-9400 Rangeman and the Casio Protrek PRW-3000.

    Both watches house the new V3 altibaro sensors which calculate faster and more accurate than the previous models.

    the prw3000 has the technology but I am unsure of its design. It looks very small. I will try and see if they have one at the mall for me to try on.

    It's definitely nowhere near the size of a Suunto.
    Here's Odie's photo for size comparison:

    The Rangeman (GW-9400) case diameter as a whole will be roughly the same as the Pro trek, but the digit size will be slightly smaller due to the smaller LCD display. If you want a good idea take a look at the GW-9200 or 9300 and then imagine the digit size increased by maybe 5%

    yeah that looks very small. Ive gotten used to the size of the suunto. just feels comfortable. I like that G shock, but I dont think it has full ABC functions? it is also a little out of my price range. have you seen or do you have any experience with the prg260 or prw2500?
