Casio introduces PRW-3500 timepiece

casio-protrekCasio is a well known watchmaker from the Land of the Rising Sun, and if there were to be a defining timepiece from the Japanese company, I would definitely say that it is the G-Shock range that has captured the imagination of the masses for many years now. However, it must be noted that Casio does not just dabble with G-Shock timepieces, they too, have rolled out watches of varying models and functionalities from time to time. This time around, we see Casio raise the bar with the introduction of the rugged and versatile Casio PRW-3500 watch. Part of the PRO TREK range, the PRW-3500 is the first model from that line to boast of 200-meter water resistance, Casio’s next-generation Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, and Tough Solar Power, which means this is a must-have accessory for outdoor enthusiasts.

Those who have a penchant for adventure will definitely appreciate the fact that the Casio PRW-3500 comes with a high level of water protection, allowing one to wear the PRW-3500 with full confidence regardless of the kind of outdoor activities that one would indulge in, including surfing, diving, kayaking, and rafting.

The 200 meter water resistance found in the PRW-3500 will enable one to plumb new depths in their outdoor adventures, where the Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology that comes with a direction sensor and pressure sensor for compass and altimeter/barometer readings will definitely be handy to have around. Apart from that, the atmospheric sensor will also boast of a pressure trend alarm so that users will remain informed of any sudden pressure swings which might be overlooked otherwise. Not only that, this timepiece will allow the user to effortlessly check and record all of the required information on outdoor conditions.

There is also no need for battery changes courtesy of Casio’s Tough Solar Power technology, where a full charge using the sun’s powers will offer a battery life of approximately 23 months – and this without further exposure to light, mind you! Heck, it can even be charged in low or fluorescent light, making this a truly unique and durable timepiece. The asking price for the Casio PRW-3500 would range from $300 to $450, depending on the colors that you pick.
