Equipped with Casio's Triple Sensor Version 3 Technology, the PRG600YB-2 and PRW6600Y-2 include a direction sensor for compass readings, pressure sensor for altimeter/barometer readings and a thermo sensor for temperature. The new models also feature Casio's Tough Solar Power technology, which consists of a solar panel system that converts light to electricity and eliminates the need for battery changes. Both timepieces can even be charged in low or fluorescent light. After a full-charge and without further exposure to light, the timepieces have a battery life of approximately seven months. A special power-save feature conserves energy by enabling the timepieces to power down when not exposed to light, which if stored in total darkness with power save on after a full charge, could extend the battery life to nearly two years.
Additional features include water resistance up to 100 meters, 1/100th stopwatch, five daily alarms, world time, countdown timer, and more. The PRG600YB-2 (MSRP: $320) and PRW6600Y-2 (MSRP: $350) will be available nationwide in April at select jewelry and watch retailers, as well as Casio.com.
