The new range of updated Casio Pro Trek Triple Sensor v3 are around now in a whole pile of colors, which is nice, but for me the best bit of news is that these models are just that little bit smaller than the older ones, or certainly neater.
Personally I don’t get carried away by the optional colors, as like cars, certain colors suit, others don’t. In the case of the models here I find that some colors, certainly in close up just make the watch look “plasticky” whilst others look great. A personal choice I know, but care should be taken of the overall look and the different display characteristics, positive/negative and so on regarding clarity.
As with so many of these Casio multi-function models however the strap is resin (note that the entire case appears to be resin now as opposed to a resin shroud). And the strap has these (blue here) plastic extenders, that annoy me intensely. The overall case at 56 mm lug to lug, the watch is still quite wide for average wrists and imo these don’t help that situation at all.
Not much in the way of changes to the technical specification (how easy it is to say that now . . . ), but that’s a fact- so just cosmetic alterations, little case changes and so on, but nevertheless resulting in a smoother, slightly neater watch overall – and for me that’s a good thing.
They say change is a good thing – NOT a sentiment I take lightly here in the UK (or what’s left of it) since today we awoke to realize we’d chucked out the EU concept. Got fed up with unelected and in power Brussels EU bureaucrats saying what we could or could not do as a Country (and getting worse), who have a different agenda to our National one . . . .
I mean when the outgoing President of a protectionist nation has the temerity to TELL us what we should do, followed by a whole gaggle of other egocentric and self interested nonentities (often paid by the EU) – it sort of gets your back up – the result was never in doubt – What can I say?
So we’re going it alone –
(Sorry about that, but Hey – sometimes you’ve just got to say . . . . .)
