With Spring around the corner, what better way to welcome the new season than with a new watch? Casio offers the Pathfinder, that’s perfect for the outdoor person. Whether you’re into hiking, biking, hunting or maybe you simply want a durable watch when working in the garage, the Pathfinder might be a good fit. Available in three different trims, it features a new triple-sensor that measures altitude, atmospheric pressure, temperature and direction. Its LCD can also show world time from 48 different cities, plus give you information on sunrise and sunset as well as a compass function. Standard features include water-resistant materials, 1/100sec stopwatch and four daily alarms. What’s more, we found it surprisingly lightweight for its size and packed features. At first sight, the size of Pathfinder PAG-240 is a bit intimidating. It’s 51mm wide and 15.5mm tall but is packed with useful features such as solar charging, digital compass, altimeter, barometer, thermometer, even a sunrise and sunset timer. After setting the time and date, my favorite feature was how light it feels. Weighing only 2.3oz, you hardly notice you’re wearing it, yet has the features of watches costing up to $1000. Gary
