This is the first such altimeter watch I have owned. I have read that the band is wimpy and the altimeter is inaccurate but I haven't had any problems with mine.

Naturally it needs calibration pretty much daily, its really just a barometer and when the barometer changes so does the altitude.

Mine is never off more than a hundred feet or so if I keep up with calibration, which I don't. I do like the weather icon function and, based on my observations, its pretty accurate. Of course there is more to notice before a change in weather than just a barometer. Nature usually sends some other warnings. It's just another tool to use, not the only one to use.

Price Paid: $60

Worst altimeter on the market. Notoriously inaccurate at all barometric pressures. Other functions are okay but I took this on an expedition and was laughed at for its gross inaccuracy in elevations. I'm talking thousands of feet off despite constant calibration.

Price Paid: $100

Great! For the price you can't beat it. It does everything the high dollar altimeter watches do, but at a 1/4 the price. Light, sleek and cool!
