PRG-600Y/PRG-600YB/PRG-600

Tokyo, September 30, 2016 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of three new models in its PRO TREK line of outdoor watches. The new PRG-600Y, PRG-600YB, and PRG-600 combine useful functionality for the outdoors with stylish looks for casual use.

The PRO TREK series of outdoor watches leverages Casio sensor technology to measure different types of outdoor data including compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude, and temperature readings. In 2013, Casio developed Triple Sensor Ver. 3 technology, realizing even better accuracy in a smaller sensor size. PRO TREK watches are appreciated by people who enjoy serious mountaineering as well as trekking, camping, and other outdoor activities.

The new PRG-600Y, PRG-600YB, and PRG-600 all incorporate Triple Sensor Ver. 3 technology and the Casio Tough Solar power system for a great combination of advanced functionality with stylish looks for users who enjoy the outdoors.

The watches feature three-dimensional index marks and broad hour and minute hands for optimum visibility, with large numerals at the 12, 3, and 9 o’clock positions. The safari-inspired styling with earth colors and the oversized stainless steel bezel look great with casual wear and are accessible for everyday use. Offered in three variations, the PRG-600 and PRG-600Y feature a soft silicone band called Dura Soft, while the PRG-600YB features a cloth band made from nylon. Both styles are easy to wear and feel comfortable on the wrist.
