Best Casio Pro Trek ABC Sensor Watches 2019

Best Pro Trek Watch 2015Pro Trek (formerly known as Pathfinder) is another Casio brand like G-Shock that is designed for outdoor activities and aimed at outdoor enthusiasts such as hikers, backpackers, campers, and climbers. Pro Trek has many of the same technical features as G-Shock like Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 automatic radio time-syncing, and the Triple Sensor (ABC) environmental sensors.

Before sensors became more common in high-end G-Shock watches, Pro Trek was the go-to brand for such features. An advantage of Pro Trek is that you can get a Triple Sensor watch for cheaper than a G-Shock with a Triple Sensor, or an analog Pro Trek for cheaper than an analog G-Shock with the Triple Sensor. If you want an “ABC” watch with the altimeter-barometer, compass, and thermometer of the Triple Sensor, but don’t want to pay a premium for a Master of G watch then it is worth considering Pro Trek.

Pro Trek watches do not have G-Shock’s Shock Resist for extreme impact resistance, but they are still very durable and designed for use in all outdoor conditions. They can also handle swimming and recreational diving and are resistant to low temperatures.

All the Pro Trek watches listed here have these features: Tough Solar: solar rechargeable battery, Triple Sensor, at least 100M water resistance, full auto LED backlight with afterglow, world time, 5 daily alarms, hourly time signal, stopwatch, countdown timer, full auto calendar, 12/24 hour formats, and button tone on/off.

Here are the best Casio Pro Trek Watches for 2019:

Pro Trek PRG-270-1: Best Affordable ProTrek ABC Watch

The PRG-270-1 is an affordable watch and like most Pro Trek models has one-button access to compass, barometric pressure, altitude, and temperature readings.

The Rangeman costs significantly more and the Pro Trek PRG2-70 is priced similarly to the G-Shock Mudman which only has the Twin Sensor with a compass and thermometer.

PROS: Affordable price, Triple Sensor Version 3
CONS: No Multi-Band 6
RECOMMENDED FOR: Anyone looking for an affordable solar ABC watch
