If the Casio Pro Trek 6000 is a bit too expensive for your taste, the 600 is a lower-priced alternative with nearly all of the same features. The 600 offers the same excellent battery life as the higher-cost 6000. The design is a bit paired down compared to the more expensive alternative. The result is a less cluttered look overall. So, what’s missing? The only thing of note that’s been omitted in the model is the lack of an atomic clock. But even without this feature, the watch is incredibly accurate and manages to pack in most of the features of its pricier counterpart.
You could easily just wear the device as a watch using it solely for timekeeping, but why would you? The quality matches the price, but it also speaks to the amount of included features packed into the 600.
If you haven’t perused our 6000 review, here’s what you might find in terms of basic functions on the lower cost Pro Trek. Of course, there’s an analog clock. But there’s also a digital display, just in case you need to brush up on your clock reading skills. It can display time in 12 or 24-hour format. The watch features a backlight for when you need to check the time in low light conditions and, like the 6000, it gives users a look at 29 different time zones. It functions as a stopwatch and timer, too. Never forget about a meeting or the sunrise ever again thanks to its five built-in alarms, and the watch also shows you what’s going on with the battery so you’ll know as soon as you need to power it up, though that might take a while.
Like its higher-cost companion, the 600 is solar powered, which makes it a great watch for those who spend a lot of time outside and not near a wall outlet. Charging requires exposure to light, and you’re good to go. Powering up this way means that frequent charging isn’t needed, so long trips without visits back to civilization are possible.
The 600 also has a calendar feature so even if you’ve lost track of the day of the week, your watch won’t. And, did we mention? It’s also water resistant down to 100 meters.
