Looks very nice. I still think I like my PRW-3100, which I acquired only a week ago, better... very similar but a bit "cleaner" with the graphics.

For comparison:
PRW-30 (left) PRW-3100 (right) - They appear to be functionally identical. The time "font" is thicker on the PRW-30.

Pro Trek puts out some really nice stuff, IMO.

I believe the PRW-30 has a standard strap attachment, not a proprietary one like the PRW-3000/3100, PRW-6000/6100 and others. This is a plus for me. I never liked the fit of the strap on my PRW-S6000, and using the Pro Trek adapters isn't ideal either. With a standard strap attachment you have much more choice in replacement straps.

Very nice watch. Seems to have MB6 too, which to me is a very pleasant surprise.

So this line may be a replacement for the PRW 3k' line?

I wonder if the dimensions are the same or like some of the new analog ProTrek smaller than their predecessors.

According to G-Central, the PRW-30 is a bit smaller than the PRW-3000.

Another new Pro Trek series revealed by Casio, the PRW-30 is expected to be launched this summer. This digital climbing model is notable for its smaller size (51.6 x 45.2 x 12.3 millimeters) and light weight (66 grams). (In comparison, the PRW-3000 measure 56 x 47 x 12.3 mm.)

Unfortunately, according to the G-Central article the PRW-30 has a 23mm lug width. I prefer 22mm or 24mm because there are many more strap choices. At least Barton makes some decent 23mm canvas and silicone 2-piece straps. The adapters on my PRW-S6000 are designed for 23mm straps as well (1-piece only).

That’s cool. The smaller size is appealing, as is the swappable straps. I have a PRW-3000 and PRW-3100 (the latter I just got recently) so it would be hard to justify, but it sure looks nice! I like the thinner bezel too.

Yes, I think all the new smaller "two digits" protreks have the same lug configuration, 23mm with quick release spring bars
I find most 22mm straps work good enough for me

My 50 with a single pass velcro


I'd be getting one of them, probably the negative display, when they drop a bit from msrp

May have missed it somewhere but does anyone know what the bezel is made of ? Presuming it's aluminium and not stainless steel

Starting to look like the offspring of a prw 600 and the prg 330. I have been on the edge of getting either the prw3100 or the prg330 (really like that digital display) but now I'm just gonna sit and wait for the release. I think I may have found my forever watch 💓💓

Love the look of these watches... and drew me to my first Pro Trek. LOVE this watch!

Definitely smaller and lighter.

Of course I like the special version best, the PRW-30AE.

Of course I think I've found my One True Watch in the GBX-100.

Until they come out with something comparably sized and specced with solar/barometer/altimeter.

Otherwise I'll be down to being a 3 watch guy.

Looks sweet!
Finally standard straps too!
Similar attachment was on vintage Timex (which was BTW casio based) and it was pretty good in terms of comfort.
