Casio Tackles The Great Outdoors With New PRO TREK Timepiece

DOVER, NJ -- Casio America, Inc. announces the latest addition to its widely popular outdoor activity PRO TREK line – the PRG300. This rugged timepiece is smaller in size compared to other PRO TREK models and comes equipped with Casio's innovative Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, Tough Solar Power and more, making it an essential tool for outdoor enthusiasts.

"At Casio, we are constantly working to develop state-of-the-art timepieces that meet the wants and needs of our outdoor community," said David Johnson, vice president of Casio's Timepiece Division. "Thanks to a smaller watch face and a variety of new color options, like camouflage, the PRG300 is the culmination of versatility and style for the ultimate outdoorsmen."

The PRO TREK PRG300 offers Casio's Triple Sensor Technology, which provides outdoor enthusiasts with more accurate data readings to help navigate through any adventure. The timepiece includes a direction sensor and pressure sensor for compass capabilities as well as altimeter/barometer readings enabling the user to effortlessly check—and record—all the needed information on outdoor conditions. Furthermore, with Casio's Tough Solar Power technology, users can charge the timepiece in low or fluorescent light, eliminating the need for continuous battery replacement. It will also power down when not exposed to light for a certain period of time, thus conserving energy.

In addition, the PRG300 also sports the following features:
•100M Water Resistance
•Low Temperature Resistance (-10C/14F)
•Sunrise & Sunset Data
•World Time (48 cities + UTC)
•Full Auto EL Backlight with Afterglow
•4 Daily Alarms
•1/10-Second Stopwatch
•Countdown Timer
•12/24 Hour Formats
•Power Saving Function

The PRO TREK PRG300 is available now for a MSRP of $250 at select jewelers and retailers nationwide. It is available in three different color options including: a black bezel with a black resin band and blue accents; a black bezel with a black resin band and yellow accents; and a white bezel with a white resin band and black accents. Beginning in August, this timepiece will also be available in a green and red camouflage design for a MSRP of $280.
