At Baselworld 2015 Casio introduces a rugged and versatile timepiece to its outdoor activity PRO TREK line.The PRW-3500 is the first PRO TREK watch to feature 200-meter water resistance, Casio’s next-generation Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, and Tough Solar Power. The PRW-3500 is on display for the first time at Baselworld 2015 in Switzerland in Hall 1.2.
The watch is based on Casio’s PRW-3000, which has a digital display and is water resistant up to 100 meters, the 200 meter water resistance found in the PRW-3500 allows outdoor enthusiasts to take their adventures to new heights—and depths. Like its predecessor, the PRW-3500 features Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology which includes a direction sensor and pressure sensor for compass and altimeter/barometer readings.
The atmospheric sensor includes a pressure trend alarm to keep users informed of any sudden pressure swings that might otherwise be overlooked. The timepiece also enables the user to effortlessly check—and record—all the needed information on outdoor conditions. In addition, the PRW-3500 can be operated easily even if the user is wearing gloves, thanks to its large buttons, non-slip surfaces and a register ring that has been shaped for easy gripping.
The PRW-3500 doesn’t need battery changes. After a full-charge, the timepiece has a battery life of approximately 23 months without further exposure to light and a special Power Save feature allows the timepiece to power down when not exposed to light for a certain period of time, thereby conserving energy. The eco powered watch can be charged even in low or fluorescent light. In addition, the PRW-3500 features a full auto LED backlight which illuminates in the dark with a tilt of the wrist.
The watch comes equipped with Casio’s Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology, so factors such as Daylight Saving Time or leap years are dealt with automatically. The PRW-3500 automatically synchronizes with atomic clocks in the US, Germany, the UK, China and two in Japan based on the user’s home city setting.
The watch comes in three colors including: silver bezel with black resin band (Retailing at $300), orange bezel with orange resin band ($320), and black bezel with titanium band ($450).
