Casio PRG 270 watch review by BK:
I wanted a tough, all-around watch for outdoor activities (mostly hiking/backpacking) and travel. I think the PRG-270 does that quite well for a lot less than some ABC (altimeter-barometer-compass) watches out there. Once you consider all the features, you have a very versatile watch for not much money. The Casio PRG-270-1 “Protrek” Triple Sensor Multi-Function Watch will tell me the time pretty much anywhere in the world, has more alarms that I will actually use, a stopwatch that goes up to hundreds of hours, a countdown timer, sunrise/sunset times (more useful than I thought it would be–nice to know roughly how much light is left), the ability to track my hikes in terms of max/min altitude and total ascent/descent, and a very good backlight–easy to see the whole dial. It’s waterproof to deeper than I will go in normal life, 100 meters or ~330 feet–and even deeper than I would go scuba diving. Solar means I don’t have to worry about battery changes.

Casio PRG 270 watch review by Rick:
I have owned similar models going back to 1994 with each sensor version. I am both a weather fanatic as well as a tech geek. I had moved away from the Casio lines in favor of my Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk AT last year but now that I have received this watch a few weeks ago I find I am wearing this more than 50% of the time. I still love my Eco-Drive and it remains my favorite of my well over 25 watch collection mainly due to its true “all-occasion” appearance (anything from beach to formal wear). This Casio PRG-270-1 “Protrek” Triple Sensor Multi-Function Watch has now taken place as my general wear go-to watch and living in the southeastern U.S. I find having the weather related features to be valuable as we head further into spring. I was looking at the prg 240 and compared both of them but ended up buying the prg 270.

Question: Do any of the US Special Forces use this watch? Yes; I have a buddy in the US Army Rangers that uses one.
