Received a PAG 80 as a gift that I've wanted in 2008, it was about $100 at the time.
- It still works.
- So many specs to mention
- Can't find parts for watchband
- Have not learned yet all of the options...
- Must make adjustments to ALT and Barometer to get Compass direction
It is a great watch to have with you.
But, you must make adjustments to the ALTIMETER and Barometer to get correct Compass direction.
The only issue I have after so many years is the band. The little eye broke and the band gets in the way...
So far I am very pleased with this watch. I love all…
Price Paid: $150
So far I am very pleased with this watch. I love all the features it has.
The compass works good, it is not accurate enough for map work but it will keep you going in the right direction. The recessed watch face is good and with the stainless steel bezel around it, the potential for scratches or scrapes on the watch face are minimized. It is definitely water proof as I found out and all watch functions perform as advertised.
Calibrating the compass and altimeter are time intensive and the operation of the altimeter takes getting used to so be sure and get familiar with the watch before you take it backcountry.
The weak point of this watch seems to be the resin band. It appears a little on the weak side and the buckle seem a little cheesy, but I have yet to have issue with it.
I am pleased with the watch.
