The Casio Pro Trek line is usually sized for outdoorsy dudes. While the watches look great on thinner wrists, watches with altimeters, compasses, and barometers are usually a little bit bigger than the new PRG330. And the best thing? The watches now come in black and pink.

The PRO TREK PRG330-1 and PRG330-4 offer Casio’s Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, which provides outdoor enthusiasts with fast, precise data readings to help navigate through any adventure. The timepieces include a direction sensor for compass readings, pressure sensor for altimeter/barometer readings and a thermo sensor for temperature readings, enabling the user to effortlessly monitor all the needed information on outdoor conditions. Furthermore, with Casio’s Tough Solar Power technology, users can charge the timepiece in low or fluorescent light, eliminating the need for continuous battery replacement. It will also power down when not exposed to light for a certain period of time, thus conserving energy.

The new model features 48 city world time, a low temperature LCD and a full auto lED backlight. It also includes sunrise and sunset data. The watches will cost $200 when they ship in July.

While nothing beats a hockey puck-sized Pro Trek on any wrist, these new pieces are surprisingly elegant, nicely designed, and very affordable. Casio has done those with smaller wrists a mitzvah and for that we thank them.
