I've been using a Pathfinder for over 10 years now, and I swear by it. I first bought an early model with a resin case. That worked great, until I wore it scuba diving off Florida's French Reef. The case didn't hold up to salt water
I liked that watch so much, I looked for another, but this time I got the Casio ProTrek Pathfinder triple sensor titanium, and it truly is a step above.
A couple of years ago I was wandering the ranch (all 4200 acres of it) late one evening when an unexpected, heavy fog rolled in. Couldn't see more than a hundred feet and I was totally bewildered (that's Dan'l Boone's term for lost
). The watch's compass got me back in short order.
A very reliable watch; I highly recommend it.
