    Nice watch, im using a Suunto as well to give me corrected relative and ambient air pressure, also air temp. Great for the longer shots !

    Had a really nice dual sensor many years ago but had to take it off to get my hand in behind a desk to plug in a computer. When I got back up off the floor it wasn't there any more. One thing I've noticed is that the time keeping of the modern stuff is nowhere near as accurate as the stuff from the late 70's. My old Seiko silver wave was accurate to a few seconds a year, whereas the new stuff is 20-40 seconds a month. Just wish I could find some new glass for that Seiko.

    What was this casio prg 240 like to use in the field?

    I just bought the 260-1 and its on its way. I looked at that suunto core and the gps model but couldnt find another brand with everything on board. Which one did u eventually buy to replace your casio?

    The Casio was good, only reason I changed was that I wanted a heartrate monitor & also was looking for a computer for mountain biking. The Suunto Ambit combines all what the Casio had plus heart rate & GPS.

    Only downside is that it has limited battery life with GPS going & charges via usb. Thinking of getting a solar charger for it...

    +1 for Suunto. The Casio would be handy.

    I found out after i pressed 'buy now' that the rings need to be checked on casio water resistant watches - something i wont be doing with anyone except approved people who are going to back their work. Mr minit do a shitty job imo.

    Is there a suunto approved repair company in nz or is it a case of returning it to norway?
