TOKYO, July 15, 2015 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of the PRW-3100, the latest addition to its PRO TREK line of outdoor watches. The new PRW-3100 is available in four models and features a super-twisted nematic (STN) display for enhanced readability.

The PRO TREK series of outdoor watches leverages cutting-edge Casio sensor technology to measure different types of outdoor data including compass bearing, altitude/atmospheric pressure, and temperature. Casio developed "Triple Sensor, Ver. 3" in 2013, downsizing of the sensors and realizing improved precision. PRO TREK watches are appreciated by people who enjoy trekking, mountaineering, and other outdoor activities.

The new PRW-3100 watches are based on the PRW-3000 watch with Triple Sensor, Ver. 3, now adding a high-contrast STN display that offers wide viewing angles for enhanced readability. With its flat bezel, the case of PRW-3100 is 0.3 mm thinner than the PRW-3000, presenting a slim design that comfortably fits the wrists of men and women alike. The bezel is made from stainless steel, giving the watch a sharp look. The PRW-3100 offers high utility including an atmospheric pressure tendency alarm that gives notification in response to sudden swings in atmospheric pressures, and Multi Band 6 technology for receiving time-calibration signals transmitted from six stations around the world.
