  1. I’m sure there are more, I just did a search for “casio pathfinder protrek twin sensor” at Amazon. There were a few more in the listings but I didn’t go through them all.

  2. Do you know if there’s any pathfinder or protrek out there with just a compass (thermometer optional) but no barometer or altimeter? I just need a compass and a thermometer would be nice too. Thanks

  3. I may be wrong but I think it’s held on by screws. They may screw into each other so if one screw rotates the other rotates also making it harder for the screws to come loose by themselves. I’ve been using this watch daily for over a year now. The band has not cracked or deteriorated in any way. It’s definitely a strong band for my uses.

  4. Well done. Thank you! My only concerns are the lack of sunrise/sunset times & the inability to accommodate a more secure NATO style watchband. And in that note, does the watchband on the 1500 crack with age? And I wish i had a bit better understanding as to how the band attaches to the watch body (again, the focus of concern being the potential to lose the watch if either the mount pins fail or the band cracks & breaks as can happen w/ the traditional rubber dive bands – unlike w/ the NATO band

  5. Thanks. It seems like every Casio barometer temperature altimeter and compass watch has a 4 minute length to save the battery but altimeter on most of them last the longest though. Almost an hour. It also reads the altimeter the same way as the barometer. So you can have a longer time with it. I might as well buy a Suunto Core or Suunto Vector if I want to use the barometer more because at least it has an barometer alarm on it. I can at least use it for 10 years easily with a lot of batteries.

  6. That is OK. I have another question. How long does the barometer and thermometer last in their modes when you press their buttons? With the Casio G-Shock Riseman I only have 4 minutes in the barometer and thermometer mode, then it automatically goes back to the main menu. But, if you read the altimeter backwards as a barometer you can get almost an hour in that altimeter mode.

  7. Oh forgot to ask. When the battery is low. Can you at least see the time? One of the cool features on my Casio G-Shock Riseman is you can see the time at least when all the other features are automatically turned off when the battery is low. My other solar atomic Casio G-Shocks can’t so that when the battery is low. You have to get another watch to wear in the meantime as you charge it up again.

  8. I am still happy with my Casio G-Shock Riseman, but I would mostly get a Casio Pathfinder if I got the chance to. The  Casio Pathfinder PAG-240 looks nice. I really like the double layer feature.
