Default Casio Pro Trek PRW2500 or Suunto Core

Casio Pro Trek PRW2500 or Suunto Core

I'm considering purchasing one of these. Right now I'm leaning toward the
Casio (solar, atomic, WR200m, better built).
What's your choice, and why.

To be honest, neither.

Why?

Don't like the full on digital look of the Casio which looks dated now. Much prefer the Suunto Core over the Casio. Considering that you are looking for a fully functional watch for the active type person. But why compromise on looks?

Why not go for the new Casio Pro Trek PRW3000-1? Looks similar to the Core but has a better design and more function.

Casio is expanding its Pro Trek collection, designed for outdoors enthusiasts, with the introduction of the PRW3000-1. The PRW3000-1 utilizes Casio’s Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, which features a downsized direction sensor and pressure sensor for altimeter/barometer readings and thermometer, resulting in improved altitude readings and compass measurements, as well as a smaller case size than previous Pro Trek watches.





The watch also features Casio’s Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology, which synchronizes the watch with atomic clocks in the US, Germany, the UK, China and two in Japan based on the user’s home city setting. Like other watches in the Pro Trek collection, the PRW3000-1 is powered by Casio’s Tough Solar Power, which can store up to 6 months’ worth of energy, and conserves power when not exposed to light for a certain period of time.
The PRW3000-1 will be available in September 2013 retailing at $300.

Thanks for the info. I really appreciate it. I was so close to buying
the 2500. With the 3000 you get the best of both worlds. The toughness
of the Casio, with more functions, and the face of the Suuno.
Thanx again.

I totally agree Scorpio this new Casio is so like the Core in looks alone that it's ridiculous.

Glad to help. Let us see the piece once you purchase and receive.

I still prefer the Casio PRW2500... its a great watch with plenty of functions... they offer built-in thermometers, a barometer, altimeter, a tide predictor, multi-band timekeeping, and a whole lot more. You can take it rock climbing and keep track of your progress by being able to see the altitude you are at, and it can boaters how deep the water is at any given location. If you are considering buying it check out this review site: http://www.casiopathfinderreview.com

I've owned two Suunto's in the past, and at this point if I were in the market for that kind of watch again, I would lean toward the Casio.

I just got a PRW-3000 and it is awesome. To anyone on the fence I would highly recommend it. All the features are very easy to use and I actually use them more than I thought.

Personally I prefer the PRW2500. A part from the personal taste the PRW2500 has normal lugs and one can use regular straps like Nato/Zulu or whatever.

I have had several of those and I keep going back for them, I finally got a all black one and I am going to keep it.

I had a Suunto too but did not appeal to me too much.

The best Casio for me however is the PRG550 and this is the one I would recommend, not only it has analog hands and similar features but also the same normal lugs.

I have a Suunto Core Black. Apart from the fact that I think it still wins in the looks department, (I love the large, clean dial) I think today Id go for the PRW3000
