I am a watch guy and this watch instantly became my favorite. These watches tell both time and direction, thanks to built-in analog or digital compasses. The HighGear AltiTech 2 is best described as a multi-function altimeter. I usually keep it attached to my sternum strap. I think the display is great in nearly all light… Full review. The weather was very stable for the entire trip with none of the afternoon thunderstorms the area is known for in the summer. I found that using an altimeter along with a good topographical map I could find my position much faster than with a compass alone. I have had no problems with the new unit and am careful not to get it wet.

Unfortunately with this watch you will never know if the watch is pointing… Full review Suunto Core This watch is Awesome! I have learned to leave it on the time mode with the temperature shown below it, and use my headlamp to view it with.

I like the carabiner attachment. The battery is easy to replace with a 3-volt CR coin-cell battery. I purchased this Casio Pathfinder watch several years ago after much Internet research. digital-compqss

I put a new battery in it but it would never work right again. A week after the hike mentioned above I went on a 4 day backpacking trip in the east side Sierra Nevada. It looks quite military to me.
