Does the Sunrise/Sunset feature on the PAW-2000 tell you where on the horizon the sun is going to rise and set, or just the times?

Approximately, not precisely. It varies depending on season. It tends to be slightly more south during winter than in summer. As far as I know PAW2000 provides the times only, not the location as the precise rising point or setting point depends on where you are within the time zone. You could be in South America somewhere in the same time zone but will find the Sun rises and sets toward the northern side of E or W (not the Southern side of E and W like in the USA) if you were in say Argentina.

the watch calculates (to the nearest 5 minutes) only the time for sunrise and sunset. it does it based on astronomical calcs. related to the location you program into the watch - e.g. either the home city code or you can fine tune to the nearest degree the longitude and latitude if you are elsewhere. you can also see the sunrise/sunset times for any date (presumably up to dec., 2099).

This is also my understanding.
