Whether you enjoy climbing, hiking, running or cycling an altimeter can be a useful tool to have during your activities. Altimeter watches provide an easy way to access altitude information without having to use a handheld GPS device. This information can be particularly handy when hiking in unfamiliar terrain or mountain biking on backcountry trails.
In addition to altitude and heart rate, some models such as the Suunto Core feature a built in barometer, digital thermometer, and weather trend indicator. This essentially makes them little weather stations for your wrist that keep you up to date on what’s happening in the atmosphere even when you’re hundreds of miles away from civilization. The Suunto Ambit and Garmin Fenix go a step further by providing GPS navigation and find waypoint functionality in the watch designs.
No matter what activities you’re into, these wrist watch models offer an all in one fitness solutions to help you better track where you’re going and how much effort you’re using to get there. For help choosing the right altimeter heart rate monitor for your outdoor activities contact us today!
