DOVER, N.J., Dec. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With unseasonably warm temperatures spreading across sections of the country this winter due to the El Nino weather pattern, Casio America, Inc. encourages everyone to take advantage of the great outdoors and get equipped with the proper gear. Casio's line of PRO TREK timepieces, including the newest PRG300, come equipped with the company's innovative Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, Tough Solar Power and more, making them essential tools for outdoor enthusiasts in any season.
"With the current weather pattern expected to continue, now is a great time to enjoy the season and plan an outdoor adventure," said David Johnson, vice president of Casio's Timepiece Division. "Our full line of PRO TREK models, including the PRG300, offer top-of-the-line features in stylish packages with a comprehensive feature-set making them the perfect choice for this winter and beyond."
The PRO TREK PRG300 features a smaller watch face than other PRO TREK models and is available in a variety of new color options, like camouflage. Ideal for hiking and biking, camping, kayaking and more, the PRG300 also features 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. The PRG300 also features 100M water resistance, low temperature resistance (-10C/14F), sunrise and sunset data, world time, 1/10-second stopwatch, countdown timer and four daily alarms.
Casio's 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. It is also available in a green and orange camouflage design for a MSRP of $280.
