Recent Altimeter Reviews

Polar AXN300

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I used the AXN300, which was a load of rubbish. I wouldn't trust Polar ever again. My watch was repaired four times and constantly let me down and cost me a lot of money to own and maintain. The manual says I can replace the batteries, but Polar declined all responsibility. The repair facility in France is a rip-off, charging over 20€ plus battery to change a battery which doesn't last very long. The watch is massive and snags on clothing and sleeves. I apologise for my review being so negative. Full review

Highgear Summit

rated 1 of 5 stars Watch is okay until you need it fixed. Then, if it's out of warranty, you're told "forget it." Full review

Casio Pathfinder PAW1100T-7V

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Brilliantly designed and rugged watch with altimeter-barometer-compass functionality. Great for backcountry, fine for EDC. An excellent option for those looking for this feature set. I purchased this Casio Pathfinder watch several years ago after much Internet research. I knew I wanted altimeter-barometer-compass (ABC) capabilities, and I was drawn to the titanium for its durability (okay, and cool looks). Three other features appealed to me as well--a cool light function (more on this later), the… Full review

Timex Expedition WS4

rated 3 of 5 stars A nice watch that is quite large on the wrist. Does quite well for casual use, but the functions such as altimeter, compass and thermometer are very inaccurate. I got this watch in late 2011 because it was the cheapest altimeter I could find... bad idea. It works great as a casual watch, other than being quite large. I think it looks quite nice, and recieved compliments about it, though more often people ask what in all the contraption on my wrist does! The functions are intuitive and easy to use… Full review

Tech4o Data Center II

rated 3 of 5 stars Too complicated and unreliable. Too complicated to remember. The battery battery compartment is difficult to open (no manuals available online either). A limited number of controls means extensive functionality is definitely not going to be intuitive to operate. I took the Data Center with me to Little Yosemite Valley. It operated well as a necklace-type timepiece and was quite durable. But I can't see using its other functions without fishing for your reading glasses, dragging out the user manual… Full review

Highgear Axio HR

rated 1.5 of 5 stars The HR monitor and altimeter just aren't very reliable. If you really want the HR and altimeter recording functions that this watch offers, consider paying more for a Sunnto or Garmin. Still useable as an altimeter if you just want to know your elevation. I've had this watch for over a year now but have held off reviewing it to give it a second chance. The last straw came this morning when, after a week or so of fairly normal operation, it once again started showing heart rates that are well above… Full review

Casio 3202 Twin Sensor Watch

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A reliable multi-function watch, with altimeter, at an excellent price point.  What can I say? I'm cheap! For a few years, I've been looking for an all-in-one watch that would include an altimeter and barometer, but the $200-500 price tag for a Suunto or St. Moritz was too steep for my tastes. Then a couple of years ago, Casio came out with two new watch designs at a much lower price point. In addition to the standard features on many digital watches (alarms, time zones, stop watches) one included… Full review

Celestron TrekGuide

rated 4 of 5 stars Inexpensive curiosity, excellent gadget on the field! Reliable readings make this device an excellent option at a bargain. Altimeter w/forecast, barometer, thermometer, compass, time/date, alarm, backlight. I am always in the market for new things, IF they make the cut... The Celestron TrekGuide (model #48001) is a handheld device that shows altitude, barometric pressure, weather forecast, temperature, a digital compass, time, date, and an alarm clock with an LED backlight. It is available in several… Full review

Suunto Core

rated 5 of 5 stars This watch is Awesome! My girlfriend got me the Core deep black for my birthday about a month ago. I am a watch guy and this watch instantly became my favorite. I have used it in Zion and just recently Havasupai in the Grand Canyon. It worked flawlessly!   I love the altimeter log function. You do have to calibrate it on occasion but that is easy to do. Digital compass works well too. I have read other reviews about how it is hard to see the display. I think the display is great in nearly all light… Full review
