One year down

I bought this watch a year ago and since have used it every day in almost every condition from very formal to sandy, dusty, pouring rain, and perfectly clear weather. (I am going to test the extremely cold and dark this upcoming year)
I have never had to adjust the time except when crossing time zones, and that is only a couple button adjustment.
So far the watch has shown a little sign of fatigue to include minimal wear on the watchband.
The altimeter is atmospheric based so should be adjusted daily by comparing to a GPS. It is accurate enough for recreational use and day to day use.
The compass is accurate enough to be used in a land navigation course. As well as it contains some features to temporarily hold a selected degree in its memory. However, I would not solely rely on this device without a compass as back-up
The thermometer is affected by skin temperature up to 15 degrees, but this can also be adjusted to compensate.
Overall, I think this is a great watch and if it continues to perform over the years as it has this past year, I will consider my money well spent.

Excellent, a little complicated

I was considering either this Pathfinder or the Suunto Vector, primarily wanted an altimeter watch for hiking. I chose the Pathfinder after reading that the Suunto batteries only last a year, and the Casio is solar powered. I also read that the Suunto has a more accurate altimiter, but I had a chance to test that directly this weekend and found that not to be true. My friend has the Suunto Vector, and over a seven hour hike with 2400 ft climb, our two watches always measured within 20 ft of each other (which is the smallest increment the casio has). Note that you need to set a reference altitude at the start of your hike in order to get an accurate altitude reading, but it will measure altitude changes even if you forget to set the reference.
Other features are all fine, it's definitely more user-friendly than the vector. Each main function (time, compass, altimeter, barometer) has a dedicated and marked button, and making adjustments is pretty easy but takes practice learning the steps.
-accurate altimeter and compass
-solar powered
-good value

-bulky and heavy
-takes practice to learn the functions
-very dim backlight

Excellent Triple Threat

I needed a everyday high function watch for all our outdoor activities and Security duty. I don't have an Altimeter in our Jeep and need one for our trips off the beaten path. I am just learning to use the Barometer. The compass has been right on. The temperature sensor has been mostly on. Still in evaluation. For the money, this watch does A LOT! Biggest positive surprise...It is much lighter than I anticipated! I have a smaller wrist for a guy and this feels great on my wrist.

All you need is a liitle sun

This is my third Pathfinder watch and two things I see as a big improvement, extremely light and all you need is a little sun to keep it running. It performs as described with no issues.

Pragmatic tool

The watch performs; needs no battery but sunlight; it is light; I use to trek/camp 1 o 3 days so it does what it needs to.

Good watch, not for me

I bought this watch specifically for its altimeter function, but didn't realize until I read the instruction manual that the altimeter doesn't measure gain/loss unless you've moved more than 50 feet in a specified time period. If you're moving up a steep incline at a decent pace, that works great. However, for most activities the readings are totally off. For example, on a recent 10,000+ vertical feet day of skiing, the watch told me that my total vertical gain was 1,500 feet because I apparently didn't climb over 50 feet between readings. However, while trail running a steep trail, the reading was very accurate.

Other than that, the watch is good for telling your starting altitude and highest altitude. It's easy to navigate between settings once you read through the instructions. I really like the solar charging feature. I think it's a good watch, I was just disappointed that it doesn't work for my purposes.
