Then it comes to watches that survive all attacks Casio’s PRO TREK ranks up there with Seikos, Garmins, and a Rolex encased in concrete. Their latest piece, the PRW3510Y-1, has a brighter, more visible super-twisted nematic (STN) LCD display and a new generation of “Triple Sensor Technology” as well as a solar powered movement.

Some deets:

?Designed with a digital STN LCD, which requires less power than other LCDs, the PRW3510Y-1 offers great visibility in highly bright or dark environments and has a full auto LED backlight which illuminates in the dark with just a tilt of the wrist. With a silicone strap, the fit and feel has been improved, and the PRW3510Y-1 also features a bold stainless steel rotary bezel which can be positioned to help keep track of current and intended bearings.
To truly round out the features that are perfect for outdoor activities, the PRW3510Y-1 is water resistant up to 200 meters allowing enthusiasts to take their adventures to new heights—and depths. The PRW3510Y-1 also features Casio’s Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology which includes a direction sensor for compass readings, pressure sensor for altimeter/barometer readings and a thermo sensor. The watch also includes a pressure trend graph and 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.

The watch battery never needs to be changed and it lasts seven months without further exposure to light, a truly impressive feat. The watch can also be charged via low or fluorescent light. It is shipping now and costs $320. Look for a review forthcoming.
