With the ProTrek PRW 6000Y, Casio introduced the concept of a lightweight, carbon fiber outdoors watch for the picky customer. The 6000Y is packed with everything from the famous triple sensor to the small things like a countdown timer or a stopwatch. Besides being a fully featured watch, the design is also one of the strong points. It rocks an analog-digital display with a double LED light for added readability in any conditions.
The carbon fiber inserted band is no joke when it comes to the overall weight of the watch. Compared to other ProTreks the PRW 6000Y comes at a weight of 73 g which distributes to a large footprint, thus making it feel incredibly lightweight. This is not to say, however, that the size of the watch will go unnoticed. You will actually have to wear it for a period of time before you get used to its size.
As said in the beginning, the design is great and the dial is clean. The hour markers and index hands feature a bright paint for dark environments plus the LED backlights which make things brighter when the environment requires it.
The triple sensor incorporates an altimeter / barometer, a compass, and a thermometer. While it is hard to state that these sensors are accurate, at least, they offer estimative values. For example, the thermometer is almost certainly unreliable when you wear the watch due to the heat from your hand. The altimeter or barometer while useful to make estimates of the altitude you are at a certain moment, or the pressure, they cannot be used in professional tasks. The compass, however, is pretty accurate. This is not to say that the triple sensor is not useful, but you need to be aware that these features won’t represent replacements for professional tools; just like the pliers or screwdrivers from a multi-tool. It is nice to wear a multi-tool for fast fixes but on the long term, you will most certainly have to use dedicated tools.
There are dedicated buttons for the main features which make configuration easier and faster, and the crown is easy to use. Other than that the band with carbon fiber insertion fits well on the wrist no matter if it comes in contact with water or rubber materials like a wetsuit. That is especially helpful for divers and others who frequently come in contact with water.
In order to draw a conclusion, the ProTrek PRW 6000Y is a great pick for those looking for a top of the line ProTrek which comes with most of the great features available at the moment in this price range. Consider this watch if you are looking for a lightweight outdoors watch that will last for years.
