Are the Pathfinder watches as sturdy and reslient as the G shock watches?
Pathfinders are not subjected to the impact testing that G-shocks are, so no, technically, they're not as durable. They are very longlasting, however, I have a twin sensor, (the predecessor to pathfinders) that's 11 years old and still running. If you require the toughness and shock resistance, the G-Shock Riseman GW-9200 has the thermometer, altimeter, and barometer functions.
I have had my Pathfinder for almost a year now and it has been very durable. Have knocked it around a bit and zero issues.
