The newest Pathfinder features Casio's innovative self-charging, self-adjusting technology, tough solar power and Waveceptor Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping Technology, alleviating concerns about changing the time for daylight saving time or leap years. This timepiece automatically synchronizes with Coordinated Universal Time broadcast continuously by stations linked to atomic clocks within the US, Germany, the UK, China and two in Japan based on the user's home city setting. Tough solar power adds to the Pathfinder's efficiency while the unique power saving function allows the watch to power down when not exposed to light for a certain period of time, thus conserving power.
