Summary: On the basis of other positive reviews for this watch, I was under the impression that the 'washout' of the watch display is barely an issue. That is not the case at all - in most situations indoors, day or night, it is not possible to see the time unless you get the angle of the watch correct.
Summary: Length:: 0:27 Mins I'm happy with this watch so far. It's sleeker, thinner, and lighter than I expected (coming from someone who is normally wears large watches). Accuracy of compass, altimeter and barometer seems good - barometer is consistent with local airport reported pressure.
Summary: This is the latest version of the ubiquitous Pro-Trek to catch my eye. I've already got 4 of the previous iterations (from the PRT40, through the PAG40T to the SPF-70 1V & SPF-70T), and this one marks a welcome addition to my quiver.
Summary: I followed the reviews of this watch and was a little concerned about the display from others reviews. However, after purchasing the watch and also modifying the band as suggested in another review I love the watch! Ignore the sayers about it being hard to read.
Summary: The PAG240-8 Is a nice watch,but it has a couple of problems:The Screen is very hard to view and the Altimeter is not accurate at all,I have a Suunto Vector that is right on the money,everytime.I wish I could return this watch and pay a little more money and get another Suunto model.
Summary: This is my first Pathfinder and I am impressed. I agree with other reviewers that indoors it can be hard to see the display. That does not take away from this watch. Likes:1)Very user friendly took me 20 min to set it up.Manual was easy to read and understand.
Summary: I have had this watch for a few days now. I am currently serving in Afghanistan. The watch arrived ahead of schedule. I was quite surprised when I opened the box. The watch still had about 60% charge on it after traveling for 10 days. Setup was rather easy.
Summary: I too was attracted to the look and appeal of this watch as well as the option of being solar powered. However, my only complaint follows suit with others; the display can be somewhat difficult to read in certain lighting conditions.
Don't listen to the negative reviews, this ABC watch works!

Summary: I've been eyeing this watch for quite sometime, and just couldn't justify the 200 dollar price, but low and behold amazon dropped the price to 149.99 and I had to pull the trigger on this one.
Summary: I paid extra for shipping as I wanted my watch before xmas, and for a change Amazon got it right! The watch seems well made, but I think some photo's on here in my eyes are specially picked to enhance the sex appeal of this watch, don't get me wrong it is well finished for a plastic watch but not...
