Casio is releasing the all-new Pro Trek PRG-600 analog-digital series in October. This safari-styled outdoor watch has a stainless steel bezel for durability and a STN LCD display for improved readability. The 3D index with large 12, 3, and 9 numerals and wide analog hands provide easy access to the time. The PRG-600 has a Tough Solar power system with a rechargeable battery and is water-resistant to 100 meters. The Triple Sensor Version 3 measures altitude up to 10,000 meters, atmospheric pressure, direction bearing, and temperature. The series will launch with three models: PRG-600-1 (silver bezel, silicone band), PRG-600Y-1 (black IP bezel, silicone band), and PRG-600YB-3 (gray IP bezel, nylon cloth band). The PRG-600-1 and PRG-600Y-1 have “Dura Soft” silicone bands. The PRG-600 measures 51.6 × 51.5 × 13.4 mm. Weight is approximately 78 grams for the PRG-600/PRG-600Y and 67 grams for the PRG-600YB.
