I have a Casio Men's PAW2000-1CR Pathfinder for some time and I intend to summarize some of its advantages and shortcomings.
I wanted to find out a good watch that will last about 5-6 years and that will be easy to back up. I hesitated for a while because the wealth of types and models can make the choice very difficult. I found out a lot about solar-powered watches and I decided to get one.
Solar watches possess solar cells and operate with gratuitous energy from the sun or some artificial source of light. When sufficiently charged, their secondary battery can proceed for months without charging. Furthermore you don't need to replace the battery and in this way you contribute to preserving the nature.
Why to buy a Casio wristwatch? There are lots of more inexpensive solar watches from nameless makers but I was searching not only for a nice and useful watch but I desired a guarantee for quality. Therefore I decided to buy a watch from a leading company in the branch. I chose Casio Men's PAW2000-1CR Pathfinder and I don't regret it. The watch looks pretty, it's user-friendly and easy to set up.
The first and most important thing I want from a watch is accuracy. Casio atomic watches get radio signal from the atomic clocks in institutes in US, UK, Germany, Japan and China. I travel much and now my watch will automatically adjust the time for me. I'm sure that wherever I go, the displayed time will be right all the time. Even without signal adjustment the deviation is no more than -/+ 20 seconds monthly and I'm happy that I'll never need to adjust the time.
Casio Men's PAW2000-1CR Pathfinder is a nice sporty everyday watch. I enjoy its thin and stylish design. It looks beautiful on the wrist and moreover it's lighter than I expected. At the same time I'm confident that this is a rugged watch and it can overcome different challenges. Casio solar watches are water, low temperature and shock-resistant so you can use them all the time.
This particular watch is great for hobbies like jogging, hunting, hiking, fishing, etc. The watch has a wide variety of functions (compass, altimeter, thermometer, calendar, timers, and alarms) and the majority of them work really well. The compass is trustworthy for finding the right direction and the barometer forecasts weather changes. I have to admit that the altimeter is not always correct but nonetheless it may be used for orientation.
I would like to mention two trivial disadvantages. The first one is the alarm - it's pretty low and I can't always perceive it, particularly in a noisy environment. The second one is the thermometer that doesn't work well when the watch is on the wrist. If you insist on getting the exact temperature, you have to take it off and leave it for a while.
In summary: I highly recommend Casio Men's PAW2000-1CR Pathfinder if you want to buy a useful multifunctional wristwatch for your hobbies. This solar watch is nice and comfortable and has many useful functions for outdoor activities.
