CASIO PRO TREK TRIPLE SENSOR WATCHESecasiocentre
Casio pro-trek watches are the best smart phone for outdoor enthusiast. Designed for hikers, backpackers, campers, and climbers, the Casio ProTrek is another line of smart watches from the Japanese electronics giant that caters to the active, outdoor enthusiasts. Casio introduced the first ProTrek watch way back in 1994. And ever since, the company has been revealing a covetable smart line of watches that feature many of the same technical features as G-Shock. These include solar power, automatic radio time-syncing, and the Triple Sensor (ABC) environmental sensors.
What Makes the Casio Pro Trek Unique?
Casio Pro Trek features various important functions that are necessary for outdoor activities. The most popular thing about them, however, is the Triple Sensor technology.
The Triple Sensor technology has evolved through three generations. The first generation debuted in 1994 and lasted until 2001. This version revolutionised wristwatches by including functionality that can measure altitude, directions and barometric pressure. The second generation lasted from 2002 to 2012. This version includes solar rechargeable systems that provide the necessary power for the sensor measurement. The third generation debuted in 2013 and has unique features such as improved measurement accuracy, 1.0-second measurement and 1mm altimeter measurement.
Pro-trek triple sensor version:
The new triple sensor has improved accuracy, is 95% slimmer and uses 90% less power. Three high sensitivity minuaturized sensors take accurate measurements of constantly changing natural phenomena, and display directions, differences in altitude, and atmospheric pressure tendency in both digital and analogue formats as well as temperatures in digital formats. Some of its features are; triple sensor, atomic, tough solar, altimeter, barometer, compass, thermometer, auto light and tide graph.
The altimeter determines the altitude at your current location based on accumulated atmospheric pressure changes measured by the pressure sensor. Setting the altimeter at a location where you know the precise altitude before starting your ascent enables it to take even more precise altitude measurements. Setting the altimeter at a location where you know the precise altitude enables you to determine the elevation of your current position with respect to sea level. If you come across a marker indicating 400 meters above sea level while hiking or climbing, for example, simply set the altimeter at 400 meters. This enables you to obtain more accurate readings with respect to sea.
The barometer measures the atmospheric pressure every two hours automatically and display the recent atmospheric pressure tendency and the current pressure graphically. A graphic display of atmospheric pressure readings taken at regular intervals reveals pressure trends at a glance. When the pressure is rising, the weather is likely to improve; when it’s falling, there’s usually worse weather ahead. This feature can remind you to take your swimming suit along, or alert you to approaching trouble.
The digital compass, the bearing memory memorizes directions detected by the direction measurement functions and displays them continuously in graphic format. You can travel straight towards your destination by following a course determined with the memorized direction displayed steadily in the 12 o’ clock position on your watch face. This capability also comes in handy when visibility is low due to such factors as trees or fog. It can also align the map with the surrounding terrain. If you determine magnetic north with the direction measurement function and place a map beside your watch, you can align the map with the surrounding geography. You can also change the direction measurement standard from magnetic north to true north by inputting the magnetic declination data indicated on a topographical map to correct the direction level when you take subsequent measures after moving on.
Thermometer helps to predict your destination temperature based on the temperature of your current location.
Casio ProTrek PRG330 is any less-capable of a watch than the ProTreks that came before it. No, on the contrary, it actually has an updated version of the Casio Triple Sensor technology, It’ll charge under a fluorescent light, but there’s really no substitute for those sunny rays. To help that battery last even longer, the screen will shut itself down when it hasn’t been exposed to light for a bit. Makes you think you’ve got a dead watch the first time you see it, but it pops back to life quickly. If you ever are curious as to what the battery charge level is at, the watch will tell you, with an indicator down on the lower portion of the dial when you’re in the main timekeeping mode. There are icons near each button that will tell you what they’re doing. At 2 o’clock, that pusher drops you into the compass; 3 o’clock gets you the barometer and thermometer info, and 4 o’clock gives you your altitude. Down at 6 o’clock you’ve got the battery level indicator (there’s a button hiding there, but it’s for the backlight), 8 o’clock cycles through the other “standard” watch modes, and then 10 o’clock is to trigger adjustments (date or time).
Casio Pro-trek watches really are designed for the outdoor enthusiasts and if you are looking for something very stylish, unique and with outstanding personality than you should choose Casio Pro-trek series.
