The Outdoorzy Blog over at Outdoorzy.com has been running a cool series of reviews this week on outdoor adventure watches. So far, they’ve reviewed the Tech40 Traileader 1, the Sunnto Core, and today’s entry takes a look at the Timex Expedition Adventure Tech.
These are the kind of high tech objects of desire that appeal to the outdoor enthusiast who has a love of gadgets as well. These watches not only tell time, but also incorporated a digital compass, barometer, thermometer, altimeter, and more. Not only do they look good, but all of that great tech is very useful on the trail for keeping an eye on the weather, staying on course, and maintaining your pace.
I personally found the review of the Sunnto Core to be very useful. I’ve been eyeing that model for some time, and getting some insights on how accurate and useful it is was quite nice before pulling the trigger on a $250 purchase. I have an older watch with similar features, but it doesn’t automatically take readings for altitude, and it has to be updated every few days with the barometric pressure or altitude in order to remain accurate. That’s not such a big deal when you have access to a reliable weather report, but it is when you are out in the field.
Remember, Christmas is now less than 2 months away, and any one of these would make a great gift for your favorite outdoor adventurer. (Seriously. I’ll take the Core! Santa? Are you listening?)
