Casio Releases New PRO TREK Watch with More Advanced
Outdoor Functions and Operability

Equipped with Triple Sensor Ver. 3 for even better accuracy

TOKYO, July 8, 2013 – Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of a new addition to the PRO TREK line of outdoor watches. The PRG-270 combines high performance and operability, and comes in five color options.

PRO TREK is a line of outdoor watches equipped with a Triple Sensor for determining compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude, and temperature.

The new PRG-270 features significantly improved usability, thanks to the adoption of Casio latest Triple Sensor Ver. 3, offering greater measurement accuracy. In addition to extending the compass bearing continuous measurement time from 20 to 60 seconds, the time required to measure altitude has been reduced from 5 seconds to 1 second, and the altitude measurement unit has been improved from 5 meters to 1 meter. An alarm function has also been added to warn of a sudden rise or fall in atmospheric pressure, ensuring the wearer can be informed the moment that weather conditions begin to change.

The enhanced usability of this outdoor watch is also apparent in its ease of operation. The large light button and the "direct button," for displaying compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/ temperature, and altitude, can be operated without taking gloves off. Furthermore, the readability of the watch has been increased with the addition of increment marks around the large LCD watchface, useful for taking a compass bearing or measuring difference in atmospheric pressure.

Equipped with the Tough Solar™ power system, the new PRG-270 offers the functions and operability needed by those that enjoy outdoor adventure.
