casio prg270 review

The Casio prg270 is a solar-powered multifunction watch that features a digital altimeter, barometer and compass. It utilizes the latest Triple Sensor V3 technology that improves the accuracy of its measurements and the speed at which they are displayed. It also has an alarm that can warn of a rapid rise or fall in barometric pressure, hinting at a changing weather forecast.

The prg270 is an ideal choice for hikers and backpackers who want to keep track of the terrain they’re trekking through. Its solar technology allows for the use of its many functions even when not in direct sunlight, and it can be charged using any type of light, including fluorescent lighting and light from a flashlight. It has a number of other useful features, including world time, stopwatch and timer. It also has a built-in pedometer to help hikers track the distance they cover and the calories they burn.

Although this model is a great hiking watch, it is not without its flaws. One of the main issues is that it can be difficult to operate. While checking the altimeter or barometer is easy enough, executing any other function requires a specific sequence of button presses that must be memorised. This can be frustrating for beginners who may forget the sequence and end up having to reset the watch in order to get it working again. Another issue is that the battery can be difficult to recharge. This is mainly due to the fact that it has a small amount of space in which to fit the solar panels.
