Hey does any one have or use any of these fancy hi-tech watches that have altimeter, barometer, compass and thermometer on them? I think they are pretty cool just not sure how reliable they are or if one is better than the other. Amazing if they actually work well. Any ideas?

I've owned the Suunto Core for 8+ years...dig it!  Take a look at the Suunto Ambit....has GPS capabilities and a bunch of features.
 
I don't trust my life to one, but it's good for stalking with a compass for directions and gives you a heads up on a weather front moving in.
 
Edit...Or maybe i have the Vector, hell i don't know.

Thanks for the input guys! A/S do you have any issues with battery life on your Suunto?

Nope.....change it every two years or so and all's good.

I have heard that the watches with thermometers can be off a little do to body heat. Do any of you experience this with your watches? Or have heard of this?

Yes.... you have to take it off to get an accurate temp reading... I think that goes for all watches. Ed F

Timex indiglo.  It lights up when I push the button.  When it quits working I throw it away and put the next one on.  GPS tells you everything else, except temp right???

HI
I have a Sunto Vector, one of the older models. 2006ish. The compass has stopped working but it does keep good time. I'd like to try one of the newer models, haven't been too impressed with this one. But.....I hate any tech device that requires me to read a manual.

Casio G-Shock, I think i paid $60-ish for it over 7 years ago. Never needs batteries (solar), water resistant to 20 bar (670ft), tells time, date and day, stop watch, timer, alarms, back lit face. GPS takes care of the rest.
