Summary: Watches are kinda like Flashlights.... I use this one all the time.. I Like the big Dial, Easy to see.. etc... Had it like 3+ years now,,,, Replaced BATTS on it, before too... Takes 2 Batts... Nice Device, Good for Camping too, and Travel/ Alaska again someday? / COMPASS TOO~!
Summary: Casio says it takes approximately 20-30 minutes *after you take the watch off and set it down* for the case temperature to stabilize (and allow you to actually measure the temperature). Really we are talking around 45 minutes or more! Here are two sets of readings I took while attending a meeting. I took off the watch and set it on the table. This was a fair size classroom at UCLA Extension, no drafts, seemingly stable temperature.
Summary: I first saw this watch at a box store for over $200. I liked the functions and large number size as I have gotten a tad older now. My last watch with an altimeter, barometer and compass was a tad hard to operate. Not this one. Easy to figure out even without the directions though the ones provided are ample. Plus I was able download a copy of for easy reference. The price at Amazon was great too. So far.
Summary: In the fifty five plus years I've been wearing watches this beauty is by far the most multi faceted and interesting watches I've ever owned. To begin with the instructions are so well written that even oldsters like myself can understand what it is the manufacturer is talking about. And, the watch responds accordingly regardless of what mode you're in. No b/s this is plain and simply a wonderful watch.
Summary: Casio is less than candid. I bought this watch as a wilderness tool. I am a Civil Engineer, Surveyor, Hunter, outdoorsman. etc. The watch gave "reasonable" service for about 12 months, and then the batteries needed replacement. LO AND BEHOLD! One has to send the watch back to Casio for battery replacement. Not even a jeweler will attempt battery replacement and neither I nor any of my friends possess the microscopic tools needed to disassemble the watch.
Summary: Casio Men's Pathfinder Triple Sensor Altimeter/Barometer/Digital Compass Watch #PAG40-3V I got this watch because I wanted something different from what I had at the time. Because recently I've been outdoors a lot, having a watch with built in compass seemed like a great idea. Having barometer and altimeter on top of it was a great bonus, so I thought. My impressions of the watch are generally positive. The compass works that way it is advertised so I got what I wanted.
Summary: The watch comes in a plain cheap carton box, nothing to give someone as a gift already....the box doesnt look appealing at all. The temperature reading is totally off. It has been off since I got it 2 weeks ago and now I have to figure out how to calibrate it. When it freezes outside it says it is 71 degrees F. Nice !!! I better check the compass and altitude meter !!!!!! The watch looks ok, but I find the material used all TOO plastic....
Summary: Going to try and make this short and simple. I liked this watch so much, I bought two - the 3V and the 5V (Tan). Pros: 1) Sturdy Construction 2) Large Numbers for Easy Reference 3) Big and Bulky (preference of mine - if you're looking for a smaller watch, don't get this one) 4) Compass, Barometer, and Altimeter all seem to work with minimal calibration issues (I've never had a problem with them).
Summary: Watch works well in all modes. Instructions on how to are hard to follow until you catch on how their mode of thinking is, but well worth the effort. This watch handles all task it is designed to do well.
