Diary: Top Gear - Casio Pro-Trek Satellite Navi

Just as nobody needs a car built like a tank to go and visit the in-laws in Derbyshire, nobody really needs a watch that picks up signals from Global Positioning System satellites (unless Sir Ranulph Fiennes happens to be reading this - in which case, I apologise).

Even so, those among you who fancy yourselves as rugged outdoor types

will probably slaver over Casio’s Pro-Trek Satellite Navi watch - a

timepiece so enormous it makes the chunky G-Shock look like the Timex

you had when you were a toddler.



And imagine the applications of the thing. Lost on your way to a meeting

in the outer reaches of Surrey? Simply glance at your watch and you’ll

know your exact latitude and longitude. Clearly a map would be more

useful, but it wouldn’t look as good on your wrist.



Even better, next time you get lost in the maze that is Home, you’ll be

able to find your way back to the bar in no time. And should you be one

of those men who finds asking for directions akin to standing in the

high street shouting ’I have an extremely small penis’, it could save

your bacon.



But perhaps the best thing about this watch is that if you get caught in

a beery punch-up, it makes a great knuckle duster.
