Whether you're tracking your ski vert, trying to figure out what the clouds are up to, timing the miles of your marathon-training run, or choosing which way to head up the hiking trail, you can chart your course with the top-of-the-line Suunto Elementum Terra Altimeter Watch. Of course, this altimeter watch comes with basic time, date, and alarm functions; however, it also comes with everything else you could need to help you track your weather, altitude, and direction. Since this expansive functionality is all packed in a sturdy, well-crafted, stylish body, it's also a celebration of formal aesthetics.
The Elementum Terra's brain is the high-resolution, real-time altimeter, which gives you an accurate reading anywhere from 1600ft below sea level to 29,500ft. Basically, it works anywhere besides the moon. It stores data for up to eight separate laps, and it helps keep those laps on track with a built-in compass and a stopwatch. A barometer will keep you informed before the weather inevitably sours, but if your response is too push on into the teeth of the storm, the watch's water- and corrosion-resistant construction let you do it in confidence.
