The Do-Everything Watch for the Outdoors Guy

Pros:Outstanding functionality, easy to use, does everything.

Cons:Not waterproof; expensive.

The Bottom Line: I highly recommend this watch for anyone who likes the outdoors, hikes, camps, likes to keep up with the weather, or is a gearhead in general.


After my older digital watch finally conked out, I wanted to replace it with something that did more than just give me the time and had a stopwatch.  While shopping with my family a couple years ago, I found exactly what I wanted:  The Casio Pathfinder.  The price was a bit steep ($250) but I decided to go for it.

Just looking at the watch is fun.  The design immediately grabs any outdoors guy like myself - lots of buttons, cool black and orange coloring, and a good size.  Now for the functionality:  besides telling time, this watch has an external "triple sensor" that tells you temperature, barometric pressure, and your current altitude, all at the touch of a button.  The top right button is a digital compass, the middle button gives you barometric pressure in mercury inches and also shows you temperature, and the bottom button gives you your altitude in feet.  Just this past weekend I took my family to Shenandoah National Park, hit the altitude button, and watched as we went from 500 feet up to 3500.

The left orange button will toggle between telling you the date and the actual day of the week.    The right button will activate the face light.  The main button on the left side of watch casing is the mode, which toggles through everything from the stopwatch to alarm to picking which part of the world you want your time set to.

My Pathfinder also has a receiver that communicates with the atomic clock every night around midnight that re-calibrates the time exactly.  I can also program it to update automatically to daylight savings time.

The watch gets its power by recharging in the sun.  So while I'm wearing it outside I can watch the indicator on the left side of the watch move up to tell me it's good for power (after all, it uses a lot of juice).  It is water resistant but not waterproof due to the external sensor needing to stay fairly clear of obstruction.  So you can take it out in the rain but not immerse it.

The case quality is excellent and the black rubber band is much stronger than the common, mainstream stuff.  After two years my Pathfinder still looks and works like new, and I wear it every day.  It has many functions that any avid outdoorsman would appreciate, and the durability to last many years.
