Garmin Foretrex 101

rated 5 of 5 stars Good basic wrist GPS available for £xx on Ebay and actually more useful than many GPS devices at £xxx So why would I bother reviewing a bit of kit that is so old it was probably the second backup nav system for Noah after the dove and the olive branch and probably guesswork? Simply put, I am a fan of writing down what you need then finding the cheapest but most bomb proof way of getting it. I understand the attraction of easy link wifi enabled blue-tooth watches, but in the end so few people even… Full review

Garmin Foretrex 301

rated 4 of 5 stars Tough little device, handy for hiking and other active sports. I use this device for hunting, jogging, canoeing, and hiking for about three years. While it’s too small to have detailed maps and other niceties, its “breadcrumbs” mean I can always find my way back to the start, and I can focus on looking for game, instead of looking for markers to backtrack. The “AAA” batteries make it a little bulky, but it means you can change to fresh batteries while you are out for extended periods. … Full review

Suunto X9i

rated 1 of 5 stars Save you money—poor manufactuer support! This GPS device was made to support the Suunto brand directly by not providing their product through general retail outlets, and to make the product sealed, preventing customers changing their own battery. This device must be sent to the local national Sunnto-owned and operated office for battery change. This product is priced-fixed through Suunto authorized dealers only. A MAP price is forced on those Suunto-authorized dealers.  They are not allowed to… Full review

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 fenix 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars More accurate measure of your distance traveled than distances shown on hiking maps! It lets you see and know via a slight vibration when you are off trail. I have only used this on a 3-day hike through the White Mountains, but am pleased enough to write a first impressions review. I did recharge the Fenix each night using an external battery so cannot comment on whether one charge holds ups over a three-day period. I downloaded my routes to the Fenix and did not buy the Garmin maps. I may buy maps… Full review

Suunto Ambit3 Peak Sapphire

rated 5 of 5 stars A terrific durable all purpose watch for whatever activity you happen to be into. I used a AMBIT 3 PEAK SAPPHIRE HR for this review. So I used a Ambit 3 Peak Saphhire HR for this review. The non-saphhire Peak model is a little tiny bit less durable, and fashionable but otherwise the same. The sport model is the same operating system but is less accurate for altitude. The run is just a timepiece with the run function pre-programed into the watch with no adjustments.  Overall I love this watch. Flipping… Full review

Garmin fenix

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I took this guy out for our first field test on the Buffalo River a few weeks ago. Really great watch for the avid outdoors man. The trackback feature came in handy several times on that rocky terrain. The storm alarm was a lifesaver too. The river rose 5 feet during the night! The Garmin Fenix is the product for you if you are heading outdoors. If you like to bike, hike, run, fly, swim, float, or fish then this little package has a lot to offer. It has multiple profile settings that you can choose… Full review

Garmin fenix

rated 5 of 5 stars The Garmin fenix GPS watch is almost in a category all it's own (the Suunto Ambit series is the only other real competition from what I could find). You can't compare this to any of the typical fitness GPS watches as this does SOOOO much more. This watch is a land-navigator's dream. I think it's important to start by clarifying that I'm reviewing the fenix as a tool for a specific job. Example: I noted in my "Cons" that the fenix needs an external antenna when under tree cover. In other words, if… Full review
