Review of the Suunto X10m

Suunto-X10m

Up for review today is the Suunto X10m, an improved version of the X9i I reviewed in 2007. It's a GPS watch with a long list of features that belie its understated appearance: GPS: Routes, waypoints, tracks, speed distance, 1 meter (3ft) resolution. Plan and visualize tracks on a PC ahead of time, then download to the watch. Google Earth compatible (screenshots and more below). Altimeter: Altitude, vertical speed, alarms for set altitudes and rates. Temperature compensated. Baromete..

The Core is an altimeter/barometer/compass watch, much like the Pathfinde..

It's not as complex as either the D9 or the Vyper we covered previously; rather, Suunto describes it as "the introductory model in the Suunto diving line". When you're talking about Suunto, however, even "introductory" means an astounding number of features for both SCUBA divers, and free divers: Standard digital watch features like 12/24 hour display, dual time, date, daily alarm, and stopwatch with spl..

The Suunto Lumi: An Adventure Watch for Women

There aren't a lot of women's outdoor watches on the market. Geeky multifunction tools like the Casio Pathfinder and the Suunto X9i are large even for men, and tend to be functionally styled.

The problem is that plenty of women ar..
