The evolution of Protrek never stops. These new models embody some of the very best in functional beauty and ease of operation that modern technology has to offer. The rotary bezel is specially shaped for easy operation even while wearing gloves. Large letters indicating north south east and west are coloured for easy reading. Dedicated direction barometer and altitude buttons provide one-touch access to measurements. Buttons are large with slanted diamond patterns for plenty of slip resistance during operation. Since 'easy to press' often also means 'more operation error' the back cover is designed to make it the same height of the button surfaces which greatly reduces the chance of operation error. The result is easy button operation but only when you need it to be. The number of pointer lines has been increased from 60 to 72 for easier to read World Time and sunrise times. Tough solar ensures stable operation even when using power-hungry functions.
