Multifunction sports watches form a distinct breed of sports watches. Not only do these timepieces hold up under tremendous pressure and amid the stresses Mother Nature throws their way, these timepieces also give you the kind of information you need to navigate your way out of potentially tight spots. As you can well imagine, this is a relatively rarified field. Not all sports watch manufacturers can truly step up to the plate when it comes to delivering the very discriminating and mission-critical requirements of outdoor sports fans, lovers of the Great Outdoors, and adventurers the world over. Typically, many watch makers can deliver the look but not the performance. Others focus so much on the performance end of the sports watch equation that they neglect the form factor and aesthetics. Both types of manufacturers often overlook critical technology that enables adventurers to get the information they need whether they are scaling mountain tops, diving at coral reefs, exploring trackless deserts, or doing anything in between these extremes. Considering Casio’s track record and manufacturing excellence, it is no surprise that Casio figures prominently in the field of multifunction sports watches.
