Add-on Gear, Compasses
Combining the best elements of Pathfinder & Sea Pathfinder, Casio introduces thebest Pathfinder to date. The Multi-Band 5 Atomic Solar Pathfinder steps beyond its core competencies of Digital Compass, Altimeter, Barometer and Thermometer by adding Tide and Moon Graphs and Moon Age Data. The tough solar powered black resin banded Pathfinder will tell you time so first, we will look at its regular timekeeper functions.
Watch digitally displays time. It can be set in a 12/24 hour format, has five daily alarms, countdown (Yacht) timer with measuring units of one second, and a countdown range of one minute to 60 minutes along with a countdown alarm, progress beeper functions. 1/100 second stopwatch with measuring modes of elapsed time, split time, and 1st and 2nd place times. The stopwatch measuring capacity is 23:59'59.99". Auto calendar which is pre-programmed until the year 2099, button operated tone on/off, watch is accurate +/- 20 seconds per month with no signal calibration, uses a CTL1616 storage battery, and has a battery power indicator and power saver function with an approximate battery life of 5 months on a full charge without further exposure to light.
This atomic timekeeper function receives time calibration radio signals automatically up to six times a day which keep the displayed time accurate, alsohas a manual receiver function; the signal received for the US is WWVB at a frequency of 60 kHz, UK is MSF at 60 kHz, Germany DCF77 at 77.5 kHz, and Japan JJ40/JJY60. Watch gives world time with 29 time zones (30 cities), displaying city code and a daylight saving on/off function. In addition the watch is water resistant to 660' (200 meters), is low temperature resistant to 14°F (-10°C), and has automatic electro-luminescent backlight illuminating the watch for low light conditions.
The altimeter function measures altitudes from -2,300 to 32,800 ft (-700 to 10,000 meters) in measuring units of 20' (5 meters). Altimeter has an auto memory function with up to 20 logged sets of altitude memory including altitude,month, date and time. The altimeter has a max-altitude memory, relative altitudedisplay and altitude tendency and differential graph and graphic.
If you are planning to go boating, fishing or Scuba diving you will appreciate the tide graph which is based on a combination of preset and user input data giving you vital information on the best time to launch the boat, drop your hookinto the water, or jump into the water. With the moon data that allows you to know the moon's age based on current data and user input data by showing a moon phase graph, will tell you when the moon is right for night diving or fishing, or maybe even a romantic moon light cruise!
The Pathfinder also has a built in barometer and thermometer. The barometer has a measuring range of 7.65 inches of mercury (Hg) to 32.45 Hg (260 hectopascals [hPa] to 1,100 hPa), has measuring units of 0.05 inches of mercury (1 hectopascals), with a tendency and differential graph and graphic display of atmospheric pressure. The thermometer has a measuring range of 14 to 140 degreesF (-10 to 60 C) in measuring units of 0.2 F (0.1 C).
You can't get lost when you have your Pathfinder on your wrist with its built incompass. How many times have you been told by someone to go north on Elm then head west on Oak etc, without a compass many of us can get lost. The Pathfinders compass has 16 points of measurement, with a measuring range of 0 to 359 degrees in units of one degree, a bearing memory with a memory capacity of one record storing direction angle and indicator. ThisPathfinder Triple Sensor Watch will lead the way on your next adventure.
