In 1970, a planet in crisis mobilized 20 million Americans for the sake of the environment. This year, April 22, will mark 50 years since the world's first Earth Day, a time to reaffirm our commitment to the environment and acknowledge how our daily choices impact current and future generations.
Small changes in our daily activities help, such as reducing water and food waste, saving energy, recycling, and more. Casio's PRO TREK lineup with its Power-Saving technology makes it easy; utilizing electronics with power-saving functions that employ renewable energy to charge is a great way to save energy and reduce battery waste.
"Being conscious of our environmental impact is a long-term commitment at Casio and that is why we designed our PRO TREK series of timepieces with both solar power and energy saving functions," said David Johnson, Vice President of Casio's Timepiece Division. "PRO TREK is geared for those who live an active lifestyle, yet still care deeply about their impact on the environment. Casio has been making products smaller, slimmer, lighter, and more energy efficient for years, so the concept of continually reducing environmental impact is second nature."
Automatically charged by sunlight or artificial light, PRO TREK timepieces boast a solar cell and special rechargeable battery (secondary battery) that is charged by electrical power produced by the solar cell. If stored for long periods in an area where there is no light to charge the battery, the power-saving function will enter a sleep mode to conserve energy.
The latest PRO TREK timepieces are equipped with quad sensor technology that can detect compass bearing, barometric pressure/altitude, temperature, and steps. Using Bluetooth® and Casio's Smartphone Link functionality, the timepieces can connect to the PRO TREK Connected app providing additional useful information such as route log, calories burned, location indicator, and more.
PRO TREK combines innovative designs with the best technology to provide features that enhance any outdoor experience making it the timepiece of choice for climbers, hikers, campers and other outdoor enthusiasts.
