Suunto Altimax Altimeter Watch
I heard somewhere that your compass is the most important piece of navigational equipment. – Well that’s complete rubbish: your map is the most important, closely followed by your watch, and then for me in 3rd place is a good altimeter. A compass is then probably my 4th.
The Suunto Altimax is both a great stop-watch for timings and a superb altimeter. I like their bog standard bottom of the range model (so much i have two!). i don’t want an electronic compass sapping my battery or a heart rate monitor or any other cack to confuse me.
A fab piece of kit – i wouldn’t be without one.
