New colors, new names. I last wrote about this watch when it was called the Casio Pathfinder PAW-5000 (you can see my full review here). This new model sports a slick new color palette as well as the "new way" of the Casio ABC watch range. "ABC" stands for altimeter, barometer, and compass, and usually was accompanied by the name "Pathfinder." Ever since I was a find I was in love with Casio Pathfinder timepieces.
Now the Pathfinder name has been retired to streamline the collection with the naming system used for the rest of the world which is Casio "Pro Trek." Until recently Casio was unable to use the Pro Trek name in the United States due to a intellectual property issue with Trek bicycles. The two brands formed an agreement and now Casio will will be able to use the Pro Trek naming system in the US. Starting this year you should be seeing newly branded Pro Trek watches. Finally, we can feel more like Europe and Japan.
