These new models are new color variations on the PRG-240 Series with vivid color LCD and Tough Solar.
- The rotary bezel has an uneven shape for easy operation, even while wearing gloves.
- Dedicated direction, barometer, and altitude buttons provide one-touch access to measurements. Buttons are large with slanted diamond patterns for plenty of slip resistance during operation.
- Since "easy to press" often also means "more operation error", the resin outer cover is designed to make it the same height of the button surfaces, which greatly reduces the chance of operation error. The result is easy button operation, but only when you need it to be.
- The red line indicating direction and other information (Duplex LCD upper display area) have been increased to 72 divisions from the 60 divisions of the past, which makes it possible to display easier-to-understand World Time and sunrise times.
