Date Reviewed: September 1, 2003

Strengths:    Good looking, fine braselet, massive,

Weaknesses:    no compass, no databank

Bottom Line:   
I`ve bought Casio Pathfinder PAT 600 (tripple sensor) at a low price. I really like this watch. At the beggining i have thought that this watch isn`t good looking watch. But at the time a started to like PAT 600. The barometer and thermometer works correctly and i use it often. I also like automatic backlight function. But one funcion is just great pedometer - during the trip it give you the distance of your trip.
Generally the great watch.

Strengths:    work fine, a lot of functions

Weaknesses:    if you use it every day, you have to change rubber band and battery in 1,5 years.

Bottom Line:   
I have PRT40 tripple sensor and love it. I use it beside bike computer. Today there are some computers with all that functions in one (polar S710), but this watch has better rain prof and it works fine.

Date Reviewed: June 8, 2003

Strengths:    This was the first model (bought in 95), it works well (but once I had the batteries changed they began dieing after about 8 mos) it has never not worked. It's a cool thing to have, but most people won't use it to it's fullest.

Bottom Line:   
The watch worked well for many years, and still does, even with jumping from planes, and 11 diffrent countries. Get one if it's what you can afford, if you can afford the Tissot- get that it's the best I have seen.

Submitted by James a Cross Country Rider from Altadena

Date Reviewed: February 28, 2003

Strengths:    All the functions, of course

Weaknesses:    Ok, here it goes: the compass reads your bearing and then stops. I would rather is continuously read (as you turned your body for example) but instead it flashes while it reads, then just locks in on your reading. You have to hit the button if you want a new reading. obviously the barometer reliant altitude measuring is a bit of a pain. BUT THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS: there are two, and you can't do anything about them. First, the metal face around the glass sits a tiny bit above the glass, you can slip your fingernail between the glass and the metal case. I have to imagine that sand and dirt is going to get in here and never come out. Especially if you go to the beach or put you hand in a dirty puddle. Second: the band is not a normal watch band. I can't really explain it but it doesn't use your usual watch pin. This means that you can't put just any band on it. I like The BAnd (brand, you know the one) and you can't use it here. I say go with the Timex Helix. I'm going to sell this and get the Timex.

Bottom Line:   
Get the Helix

Date Reviewed: September 3, 2002

Strengths:    The watch does a lot. Altitude, temp, time, alarm, etc. Altitude is accurate (subject to changes in weather).

Weaknesses:    Altitude updates slowly. Sometimes I'm up and over a hill between readings. Watch is more designed for hiking. Temperature tends to be skin temperature. To get accurate temp I need to strap to bicycle. Took a while to learn to use.

Bottom Line:   
Nice watch. Well built. Accurate. More designed for hiking than cycling.

Submitted by Andrew a Weekend Warrior from Houston, TX, USA

Date Reviewed: May 15, 2000

Strengths:    It's a Casio. Triple Sensor (English and Metric units): Compass (stores five data points), Thermometer, Altimeter (stores max and min with date/time); shows barometric pressure over past 24 hrs; all basic watch functions; altitude alarm; five alarms plus hourly chime; stopwatch function with lap time; water resistant to 100M; all measurement functions can be adjusted for baselining. I used the compass feature extensively when traveling in Tokyo and Hong Kong to keep my bearings when exiting from the subway systems. New models have indiglo-type backlighting, which I wish mine had, but mine was the first generation Pathfinder.

Weaknesses:    As mentioned in another review, all its measurements are based on barometric pressure and temperature, so sudden changes in weather can affect readings. Temperature reads ambient skin temperature, but it can be adjusted to account for that. It's size may take some getting used to for those with small wrists, but it's not that big a deal. I think the new ones come with nylon/leather wrist straps, which are preferable to the resin band that I have (I'm on my third in the past four years). It would be nice if they came in metal casings.

Bottom Line:   
An excellent product with some caveats, which are spelled out in the manual. There's a slight learning cuve, but once you understand how to use the functions, it becomes second nature. It has certainly lived up to its name during my travels in the Far East. Hopefully Casio will produce a metal-cased version, since this isn't the cheapest watch in the world.

Date Reviewed: March 1, 2000

Strengths:    altimeter, thermometer, barometer, watch, stopwatch, calendar! it does everything but wash your dishes

Weaknesses:    you need to carry the manual with you to remember how to use all the functions.


Bottom Line:   
altimeter is affected by weather changes because readings are based on barometric pressure changes. also, temperature readings do not reflect actual ambient air temperature while the watch is worn on the wrist (body temp, you know). still it's a cool chi-chi to have. got it on sale from rei.
