The Casio Protek PRG 600 is a more classy take on the outdoors focused Protek range. It still has Casio’s Triple Sensor with an Altimeter, Barometer/Thermometer and a digital compass. And their Tough Solar-powered quartz movement. So, nothing has changed there.

However, this watch is designed to look a lot different to other Proteks or G-Shocks. First, the most obvious design element of this watch is the thick stainless steel bezel running around the dial. This is stamped with the relevant city codes to help with the world clock that this watch also comes with.

Second, it has a dual time, which means there is a set of analog hands on the watch, with clear large numerals around the dial, as well as a smaller digital display at 6 o’clock.

The digital display is also used for most of the functions on the watch, including calibration, power meter etc. This is perhaps one of the elements that might annoy some people who are used to a larger digital display for such things.

 

Protek PRG 600 Features

Like other Proteks I have looked at before, this watch comes with Casio’s Triple Sensor  – so you get a Barometer/Thermometer, Altimeter and Digital Compass

It also comes with World Time (hence the markings on the bezel) as well as the usual digital watch features – countdown timer, stopwatch, alarms and daylight savings.

There is also solar power, a backlight to the watch, as well as 100m water resistance.

So, all in all, it’s similar in spec to say the Protek PRG 270, but it looks completely different!

The model shown here is the PRG-600-1CR, but keep in mind there are a variety of color options like the PRG-600Y-1CR, PRG-600YB-3CR and PRG-600YL-5JF (Japan Import)
