If you’re looking for a solid watch to use in the great outdoors, it would be hard to argue against one from the Casio Pro Trek lineup. Those are specifically aimed for the outdoors enthusiast, and come along with all sorts of great features. Sometimes the naming conventions can make them hard to remember, but their latest solves that problem. Meet the Casio Pro Trek PRW6900BF-1 Bonfire.

From this point forward, we’re just calling it the Casio Pro Trek Bonfire. What does the watch have to do with that tasty creator of light, warmth, and s’mores? Well, aside from the name, nothing, other than the fact you’re likely to encounter them outside. Frankly, we’re a little surprised we’re not seeing more fire-themed color accents worked in (though the lume is quite nice), but such is the way it goes. Perhaps we can view that pebbled finish on the case as the resulting char that’s left on the logs in the morning.

To be fair, they’re stating that the finish is inspired by a cast iron skillet, which I can see. And hey, you can easily cook over a campfire with cast iron, so there you go. Here’s what Casio has to say about this new release:

In keeping with the PRO TREK commitment to be “One with Nature”, the PRW6900BF-1’s case and resin case back is made with biomass plastics, an eco-friendly, green material. The timepiece is equipped with Casio’s signature Tough Solar and Triple Sensor Ver.3 (altimeter, barometer and compass) technology ensuring precision and reliability when outdoors. Additional features include water resistance up to 100 meters, five daily alarms, a 24-hour stopwatch, timer, Super Illuminator, world time (29 cities + UTC), a full Auto LED and more

So, if the round Pro Trek watches weren’t your taste, perhaps the new Bonfire will get the job done. We know the internals will be up ot the job, and adding solar charging to the triple-sensor makes this to be a great outdoors-oriented piece. It’s available now for $510 directly from casio.com
