CASIO to Release PRO TREK with High-Performance Features in a More Streamlined Profile
Outdoor Watch with Precise Compass Bearing, Atmospheric Pressure/Altitude, and Temperature Readings – All in a Slim Profile Great for Both Men and Women, and for Serious Climbers Too

BASEL, March 21, 2018 – Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today a new addition to the PRO TREK line of outdoor watches. The PRW-60 retains the high-performance features of the PRO TREK line, but in a significantly streamlined profile.

The PRO TREK line of outdoor watches leverages Casio's sensor technology to measure different types of outdoor data. The PRW-6100 in particular, released by Casio in 2016, has proven popular for its excellent performance, readability, and durability.

The new PRW-60 realises the same high-performance features of the PRW-6100, but in a significantly streamlined profile. These features include Triple Sensor technology that delivers precise compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude, and temperature readings, and Wave Ceptor technology.

To achieve a more compact profile, the PRW-60 employs the newly developed Cross Frame Structure in which the lugs that attach the band to the case are integrated into the case back. Additionally, the springs inside the crown and placement of sensors have been redesigned. These changes have reduced the height and width of the case by 7.0 mm and 3.3 mm, respectively.

The hour and second hands and index marks are finished with a special fluorescent coating that glows a vivid blue under ultraviolet illumination, for readability in the dark.

The new PRW-60 is available in an often requested white-coloured model, a first for a PRO TREK digital-analogue combination watch. Even the watch face is white, a feat Casio achieved by optimizing its original shadow-dispersing solar panel. All the new models feature a metallic mirror deposition finish applied to the index marks that adds further refinement to the watch, while a quick-release spring bar enables the user to switch watch bands easily.

The compact profile fits a women's wrist and is ideal for a wide range of applications and pursuits, including trekking and climbing where the user wants the watch not to obstruct the wrist. The PRO TREK PRW-60 is well-suited for everyday use as well as outdoor pursuits.
