Don't worry though, we have a lot more Heart Rate Monitors in stock than that.
Highgear Axio HR Altimeter Watch $0.00
If you're the kind of info junkie who loves to analyze every statistic from your workouts and on-trail adventures, you want much more than a regular heart rate monitor. You want a tool like the High Gear Axio HR Altimeter watch, which blends all the features of a heart rate monitor, barometer, thermometer, altimeter, and timepiece.
- Heart rate monitor displays as beats per minute or as percentage of maximum heart rate, which you can set automatically or manually
- Heart rate monitor offers a 24-hour chronograph and a 10-run memory so you can track every bit of data about your workout, from calories burned to your average heart rate
- Altimeter works up to 30,045 feet (so you'd need a spaceship to get higher) and tracks your vertical speed, cumulative ascent and descent, and maximum altitude
- Altimeter's memory logbook tracks all data from up to 20 workouts
- Digital barometer displays sea level pressure and absolute pressure within 1Mbar of resolution, and it offers a weather forecast and 24-hour pressure trend display
- Digital thermometer works from -14 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit and also displays temps in degrees Celsius
- Watch displays time, day, and date, and incorporates extras like alarms, a backlight, and a user-replaceable battery (so if you're in Patagonia, you don't have to find a jeweler to help you out)
- Sturdy glass-reinforced nylon case and mineral glass lens stand up to years of use and abuse

Not Quite Sure
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I took this to Yosemite on a 4 day trip where we had a total elevation gain of over 10K feet. Two other members of my group were wearing much more expensive Suunto altimeters. We all calibrated at the same spot and frequently compared altitudes. My Axio was always the lowest number and I was about ready to throw it in the trash until we saw a sign that said the exact altitude as we left the park at the end of the trip and my Axio was within 5 feet of accuracy while the other two guys were between 50 and 150 feet over. That was the only official sign that we saw that I chose to remember (since it was super accurate at that moment). I don't know if this is a situation of every broken clock being right twice a day or not. I plan on comparing it to a GPS next time
Love my HR Altimeter Watch
I recently replaced by Suunto altimeter watch with an Azio Altimeter. For a third of the price I got a lot more. all the same functions but much easier to use. I really like that the altimeter and heart rate functions have their own separate data logs. And the chest band for the HR function is more comfortable on the Axio. The band itself is a big plus. Always hated the Suunto band. Azio's fits and feels much better without the overlap on the end of the band. The only thing I miss is the countdown timer on the Chonometer. All in all a great buy for the money.
I dont have very much experience with HRM's but I figured I would get this one thinking it would a good buy. The watch has so many functions that I am still trying to figure out everything. It will not work unless the chest strap is pretty tight. If I had to buy a HRM all over again I would buy one with GPS and that loads results on the computer. Other than that it does its job.
how big is this watch compared to suunto...
how big is this watch compared to suunto core or T6?
The Highgear is a 46mm case, slightly smaller than the Core at 49.3mm.
