Casio announced their new Pathfinder yesterday, the PAG40-7V. This newest addition has a thermometer, digital compass, altimeter, barometer, and is water resistant to 100 meters. Of course, the only place you’ll be able to get it is online.
What’s making this Casio different is it’s being marketed exclusively through Amazon.com, for the quite reasonable price of $200. This isn’t the first time Casio has marketed a watch this way, and it’s certainly not the first Pathfinder, but we are starting to see a trend among a certain market of exclusive online marketing. It’ll be interesting to see if this works out in the long run, I know I generally prefer to hold a watch in my hand before buying it, but the Pathfinder line hasn’t changed much over the years. I do have to admit this new model looks quite a bit different from my old ATC-1200 though.
The new Pathfinder will be available sometime this holiday season on Amazon.com, with an MSRP of $200.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
