Suunto X9i

rated 2 of 5 stars I have owned two (2) X9i watches for several years which I purchased when on a cruise. After a couple of years the wristbands started to break and chip. Wristbands on the watch housing are made out of rubber. Every year afterward the wristband started to chip and break more frequently. Paying the amount for two watches you would think the rubber parts of the watch would last more than a few years. I recently called for service and the service dept. said that it would cost between $45-$65 to replace… Full review

Garmin vivosmart HR+

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The Garmin Vivosmart HR+ is definitely not perfect, but packs a lot of useful features into a relatively compact package. I have been using the Garmin Vivosmart HR+ for about a year now, mainly for day-to-day health tracking and hiking. Here is a summary of what I think is good and bad about it. ProFeatures: Provides lots of features including step count, heart rate, GPS tracking, sleep monitor, Bluetooth connectivity, notifications from phone and control of music on phone (I don't use this). Size:… Full review

Garmin eTrex 30

rated 3 of 5 stars It's a scam. When you pay $150 for a GPS you expect at least it would ship a decent map with it. But, no, it came with a map that doesn't even show road to your home. Okay, maybe that was a bit harsh. I think the unit is quite sturdy, and the satellite acquisition is fairly fast. It's one unit, provided you carry enough batteries, that can get you home. Every time I read about someone gotten lost and died on the trail, I always asked, why did not he or she invest in a GPS. This is my investment… Full review

Garmin eTrex 10

rated 3.5 of 5 stars If you're a beginner, you'll find the quick startup and owner's manuals woefully inadequate. I had to call Garmin twice just to find out how to get the page that shows me how far I've hiked. I've used a Garmin GPS 60 for years, so I'm not a beginner. When my GPS 60 died, I couldn't find a simple GPS that would tell me how far and how fast I've hiked. The GPSes were expensive and extremely complex. FINALLY, the eTrex 10 showed up—just what I'd been waiting for! However, the instructions (quick… Full review

Garmin eTrex 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Compact, lightweight, and reliable handheld GPS receiver. Includes an electronic compass and barometer. Lacks a touch screen, but touch screens are ineffective in bad weather. The Garmin eTrex 30 is a battery-powered handheld GPS unit. It has been around for a long time, and at first sight it looks old-fashioned. Its display screen is small and is not touch-sensitive: you control the unit using buttons on the sides and a joystick on the front. Having said this, I’m not sure that a touch screen… Full review

Garmin GPSMap 64s

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid successor of time-proven GPSMap series, made for extreme conditions. But the number of improvements over GPSMap 62s leaves much to be desired. The button-operated Garmin handhelds are still not for everyone. Background I’ve been an active user of Garmin GPS handhelds since 2002. The first one was eTrex Vista—old, monochrome and equipped with 24 MB of memory for maps. It had really weak receiver with tendency for losing satellite signal in ALL less than perfect conditions (inside the pocket,… Full review

DeLorme inReach SE

rated 4 of 5 stars The safety of an SOS button connected via satellite to a monitoring response team combined with features you can use on every trip. Those features include two-way texting including localized weather reports, live updating of your personal online map and others you can choose or ignore as desired. The device and subscription service are not cheap, but for those venturing far afield, especially those who go alone, it gives a good return on the investment. Lots of function packed into a pretty small… Full review

Magellan Triton 500

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Rock solid unit. I had a Magellan Sportrak Map unit, but this blows it away with USB connectivity, map downloads, SD card support and so much color! Very nice feel and the buttons are great. I use it mostly for geocaching, and having all the cache data in one unit is fantastic. Androids and Apple products can do this too, but not with the precision of a purpose-built unit.  I just cannot get over the map features while hiking the hills looking for a geocache. Yeah, I got it for $4 + tax at Goodwill… Full review

Garmin eTrex 30

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I am only weighing in on eTrex as to use of it without buying the expensive Garmin map subscriptions. It has worked fine as it was able to synch with Google Earth when the data is downloaded to my laptop. However, Garmin basecamp, which is the program to download from your device to a computer, will no longer work with Google Earth. The support team at Garmin tells me that I must use Garmin maps. I bought the device not wanting the map subscription and because it worked with Google Earth. Now it… Full review
