Summary: Maybe I got a lemon -- I don't know, but the "Solar Powered" aspect of this watch never worked for me. Now, I don't get a lot of sun, to be sure, but I am usually exposed to sunlight at least as much as the manual says the watch requires and I was always wearing the watch so I'm thinking that...
Summary: My wife bought this for me for the holidays. This watch does everything it advertises, plus some! I played around with the watch for good hour or two right out of the box. The instruction manual (though dauntingly big) was very easy to read and understand.
Summary: This is the second pathfinder I have owned, the first one being the pag40, and I must say I prefer the pag80 much better. For starters the fact that it's solar is a major upgrade! The baro alti compass features are all accurate, but take a second to adjust to changes.
Summary: Great watch, clear instructions, good to wear. The warnings about the watch needing exposure to bright light are clear and repeated, so nobody should be surprised if it fades if not exposed regularly. Not sure yet how accurate the altimeter is, but looking forward to using it.
Summary: I have been looking for a quality outdoor watch for a few weeks and came upon the Casio PAG80-1V Pathfinder on Amazon afer looking at some local stores. This watch is exactly as advertised...compass, barometer, altimeter and timepiece all function great.
Summary: Got this watch for my birthday a couple years back and I must say that it isnt all that it's cut out to be. To start off it's huge and maybe if I were fat it would look okay, but as it stands it is an eye sore on my wrist.
Summary: Watch Functions Time. It's a watch first and foremost so it has got to keep good time and display it legibly and simply. The PAG80 does just that. The display is large and bright which is easy to read in both the dark, with the aid of the backlight, right through to bright sunlight.
