Posted it here: hotukdeals.com/dea…330 last week for £88.02 @ Amazon (gone back up) so for this price a real bargain

Had it for ten years and replaced the strap about three years ago, there has been some mention of the price of replacing the batteries for this watch being MEGA expensive well all I can say is that I had mine replaced on Thursday (including re-seal) at an IN-TIME kiosk for a mere £19 this includes a 18 month guarantee.

Great watch, fantastic price, nice find OP

£19 for a new battery is pretty steep, could buy a new watch for that.

That probably included a reseal and water resistancy test.

My price limit for a new watch battery is sub £4 quid. Or I consider dumping the watch and getting a new one. My last Casio battery lasted for for 14years. And no, I'm not making that up.
I replaced it at a cost of 3.50 for sentimental reasons. Them bloody Japanese sure can build things to last. Four weeks after replacing the battery the strap snapped for the first time... Doh.
The watch still works and is knocking on the door of 18 years old.

Well where can you use it upto 100m that is not in the sea?

Oh and they cant spell either. Snorkeling only has one 'l'.

Question, can the time be displayed in the centre were the numbers 360 are in the picture or is it always at the bottom in small display. Need a large time display so can see without reading glasses.

100m refers to static pressure, when actually swimming it wil be dynamic, so you can't actually use it swimming to the rated depth.

lol yeh and 20 smartprice ones, idiot

reserved one but dont think i will bother then if you have to set the time manualy

Looks like a good deal to me, and as a previous post says...you can't have too many watches!

I'll never buy another watch that isn't radio-controlled any more - seems pointless to have a load of jazzy features and then have to set the time manually (particularly when the time zone changes changes twice a year). BTW, what's the use of a temperature sensor on a watch - won't that measure the temperature of your wrist?!
Edited by: "rkl" 25th Dec 2010

Have got one reserved but don't need a new watch so have got a day to decide if to buy it or not as reservation valid until Monday but I do like gadgets

RKL - have read a few reviews and it mentions about the temperature sensor u need to take the watch off for anywhere between 10-30 minutes to get an accurate temperature reading otherwise it will just take the temperature of ur wrist

Great deal. Looks a chunky beast.

So, £19 to change the batteries. Any idea how long the batteries last? I wouldn't mind if the batteries last 10 years, but if they need replacing every 18 months I might not be so keen. I suspect it'll more likely be the latter, with all the features it's got on it.

Not really a problem to set time. Only needs doing a couple of times a year, no disrespect to anyone but if it is to much trouble for anyone to change the time a couple of times a year, well its a sad old world. Remember when i was a young guy had to wind my watch every day and re set the time. Mind you could not go back to that. Nice looking watch for the money, cant wait to get mine

Are you for real?! It's a watch... You set the time. Good job you don't have one of my automatics!

I have a lot of Casios. Great watches and this is ideal for outdoors. It's not 100% accurate because it's a watch and not a standalone device but it's fine for most people and a great backup tool.

The battery life will be dependant on how much you use the functions. If you use the compass etc a lot, the battery will die quicker than if you don't ever use the modes of the watch. However, I would still expect a couple of years even with lots of use.

To the cheapskates who will only pay £3 for a battery change. This is fine if you don't swim but the watch will need a re-seal and pressure test if you take it near water.

Great watch but don't expect perfect accuracy and then moan and give it a bad name because you expect too much from a £60 watch.

just a quick note for everyone - dont think these are the latest protrek versions??? The argos ones has one button by the base of watch (for the light funtion), where as all the latest protrek on casio website has 2 button at the base. See for yourselfit out casio-intl.com/wat…ek/

Think someone mentioned earlier in the thread that it's a discontinued model so it will be cheaper as the new ones on the cassia site are gonna be more expensive

Seems expensive for a fairly basic digital watch. ok it has a barometer that's the only out of the ordinary thing about this watch. It's 2010 now not 2000.

Compass and temperature too.

The electronic compass is the probably the most sophisticated feature.

It's designed for hiking and other various outdoor activities, I believe.

I had the Suunto version of this (approx £200). Hardly used the features. An old fashioned hand held plastic compass does the job much better combined with a Casio GW-m5600.Much better for me. But the price on this is good. But do be aware that it may just sit there in the drawer.

Exactly, really this is all old technology and should not cost so much.

Now that's cool. A watch with a barometer. Can it really tell you how good your local boozer is?

They do though and they sell, otherwise the prices would plummet due to lack of sales. So some must think they are worth the money. I can,t understand why they do not make a good lcd watch from stainless steel with steel strap and a good size display. I am sure a good deal of the older generation would buy one.

Hence it's a discontinued product at a low price. You want latest tech, you pay more. For what it is at the price it is it's a hot HUKD. Everyone know's the watch's compass won't replace a proper compass on an expedition, but it's a handy backup or when you just need a rough idea.
