If you enjoy outdoor bouts such as camping, hiking, or trekking, you want to pack as much functionality with the least amount of bulk to stay light on your feet. CASIO had this active outdoorsman in mind when they developed the PRW61-1A, packing it full of features that turn it into the perfect companion for your adventures off the beaten path.

At first glance, the PRW61-1A’s most notable feature is its large case, measuring 47.4mm. It gives the watch a significant presence on your wrist and keeps its legibility high. Adding to this is PRO TREK’s use of vivid white for the watch’s indices and hands, increasing their contrast. On the bottom part of the dial, you’ll find the digital counterpart of this hybrid watch, showcasing the day, date, and other helpful data you can pull up with its interface.

On the digital front, the PRW61-1A is chock full of thoughtful features. True to its outdoor utility, you get a triple sensor and compass, so you never lose your way when you’re away from home, a thermometer, and altimeter/barometer, which lets you analyze your surrounding conditions and make better-informed decisions for the climb ahead. To make better use of the aforementioned compass, the analog second hand indicates magnetic or true north and the upper and lower bands feature notches to align with the orientation indicator on your map. Also included are the standard features you’d expect from a CASIO watch, like five daily alarms, a countdown timer, a 1/100 second stopwatch, world time for 29 time zones, and more.

The PRW61-1A uses environmentally friendly materials, so it doesn’t contribute to the damage to the very environment it’s trying to help you navigate. Eco-friendly bio-mass plastics instead of conventional resins compose its case, caseback, and band. But make no mistake: the PRW61-1A remains as tough as you would expect any other CASIO. For inclement weather, the watch features a screw-down crown, which helps make it water-resistant for up to 100 meters. And to protect it from scratches, the PRW61-1A employs a reliable mineral glass crystal.

Last but not least, other quality of life features such as a super illuminator full auto double LED light, and a solar-powered battery gives the PRW61-1A even more utility as an EDC watch with up to 6-month battery life on a full charge. It will serve as a solid companion no matter where your adventures take you. Check it out and pick one up at the link below.
