Casio is expanding their PRO TREK Biomass collection with a new Climber Series reference PRG340 featuring a suite of features focused on climbers and navigators. This isn’t a field style watch, or simply an outdoor themed watch, it’s quite literally a digital tool equipped with relevant and handy features for those that prefer traversing the wilds on foot. It’s a watch bristling with buttons and screens just begging to be taken advantage of (or at the very least, tested out of curiosity, perhaps on a walk home from work). It might look like a lot, but it’s actually rather intuitive thanks to a slew of well labeled buttons and large duplex LCD screen. It’s also made using bio-mass plastics.
The latest watch to don the PRO TREK name arrives in a trio of options, offering green, black, and titanium case and bracelet options. But the real star of the show here is the screen and surrounding real estate. The screen is constructed of multiple layers upon which to display information, from heading graphics and compass bearings, to more mundane stuff like the time and date. A dedicated area at the top can be used for a variety of user selected readouts depending on your activity. It’s a bit larger than the off-center screen found on the PRG240, and provides a more symmetrical screen design for better legibility.
