The ideal watch for high performance in the great outdoors
The new PRO TREK PRG-240-1ER inspires thirst for adventure


Norderstedt, August 2010 – Whether it’s mountain bike tours, glacier climbing or sailing trips, each person defines adventure in their own particular way. Whatever your preference, the most important thing is to have the right equipment, such as the new PRO TREK PRG-240-1ER. This high-performance model boasts technical features which will thrill every outdoor sportsman. Simple operation, essential functions, including a sunrise and sunset indicator, and a large, easy-to-read display make this model into a high-performance all-rounder.

The new PRG-240 excels due to its variety of helpful functions. Resistant to temperatures as low as -10° C, it is also equipped with a digital compass, combined thermometer and barometer, and an altimeter, which measures up to 10,000 metres. All those features will please mountaineers, climbers and anyone else who enjoys the great outdoors. On the clearly arranged Duplex LCD panel, different measurement readings are also shown in the extra green display box in addition to the main display. The watch is powered by a hidden solar cell integrated into the display. The two prominent operating buttons on the lower casing edge enable the wearer to make data settings and easily switch on the display illumination, even when wearing gloves.

The PRG-240-1ER’s colours will ideally match any outdoor outfit. The dominant black and grey tones highlight the multi-functional PRO TREK’s sporty character with its sturdy resin casing and wristband.
