Casio's excellent reputation in the world of durable multi-function watches has long been cemented with its successful lines, including the well-known G-Shock and Pathfinder. This entry has been on the market for some time under the Pathfinder line, which has been renamed Pro Trek, and its popularity with outdoorsmen and survivalists alike is well earned.

The model shown here features a resin/cloth band that seems tougher than leather yet is very comfortable on the wrist. Its compass bezel rotates and its function buttons are easy to access without the risk of accidental activation.
