Summary: This watch does a lot more than I expected. The price was very reasonable for what it does and it looks very currently fashionable. It does take some time (2+ hrs) to read the manual and get things adjusted right. Everything this watch does is pretty accurate. I am still working on the compass; I have have used 2 differrent compasses and still cannot believe north is north (Senior moment and historical belief). The solar charge always keeps this watch charged.
Summary: I was stoked to get a watch with so many functions given that I am in the military; however, I am not impressed after the fact. It requires too much calibration and even then it is not accurate metric-wise. Also, on mine, the battery is always showing low no matter much it is charged, which means the nightlight does not work when needed. I would purchase a cheaper watch if I were doing it again.

Summary: I have owned quite a few Casio watches over the past two decades including two G-shock models, and I have been previously very impressed with the durability and functionality of the features of Casio watches. I have worn G-shocks while Scuba diving, ATVing, and with no problems. I have been utterly disappointed with the performance and durability of this Pathfinder series of watches.
Summary: I first purchased this watch in 2004 before deploying to Iraq. I still use it to this day, I have gotten years of great use. You have to remember to recalibrate it ocassionally, so keep the manual.
Summary: The altimeter can be +/- 100 feet in a day, even if you set the reference point. If you want to see what the temperature, barometric pressure, or altimeter is in the dark you are out of luck. In other words if you press the illum button after pressing the alt button or baro button the screen goes blank until you get it back into timekeeping mode again.
Summary: I got this watch a few days ago and I love it already. It's very useful to be able to see the barometric pressure and have some idea of what the weather is going to be like. I've also been having fun with the altimeter, logging ascents/descents on bike rides (of course the measured altitude will fluctuate with changes in air pressure, but this is quickly and easily accounted for with a quick calibration.
Summary: This watch is ok. I had the PAW1300Y-1VCR and it was comfortable and AWESOME. I don't find this watch to be as comfortable, but it does have more features. Mainly, it hinders the natural movement of your wrist, and when you do bend your wrist you push the function buttons. So, sometimes when I go to check the time I have to press the mode button because it's usually on compass, barometer, or altimeter.
Summary: I bought the Casio PAW2001-CR especially for a trip to Peru and Ecuador. It has worked very well and has been fun to use! The dual time feature has been vey useful from a practical point of view. The elevation function works very well, quite accurate most of the time, and at altitudes in the Andes I was often asked, "How high are we now?
