Touring Watch

I like my watches and particularly Casios for touring, this one has an altimeter, thermometer and a decent barometer. It's also waterproof to 100m and has all the usual Casio extras, alarm, worldtimes, stopwatch, light etc....

It's a large watch but luckily the senors are on the upper side, so it doesn't dig in your wrist when riding, I've used all the features and the altimeter and barometer are good, the temp is ok (ish) as it's affected by your body temp. It's been used for one 7 day tour and is like new, I am selling it as I have 3 similar Casios and seeing as they never go wrong and I can never break them or wear them out, it's too many.

That will be good for deep puddles

I don't use a bike computer or a phone on tour, this tells me the time, temp, how far I've climbed and the probability of rain. it wakes me up in the morning and if I wake too early the light tells me the time, plus, I don't have to ever take it off, showering, swimming etc.

Does the altimeter function give you a total of how high you have climbed? For instance if I wanted to climb up a hill, but there were sections of downhill, would it give the total of uphill climb?

Looks great but I need to be able to read it without glasses and that has tiny numbers. I have a Timex Ironman one and like you keep it on 24/7 when touring

Sorry for the late reply, it has been sold.

All Casios have PDF instructions to download.

Yes, I don't see the point of the analogue hands, they get in the way, it'd have been better without and with bigger read outs.
