Today’s technologically savvy timekeepers seek to explore sylvan settings while wearing watches that feature great outdoor-worthy functions. From digital compasses to altimeters, thermometers, chronograph timers, and even alarms, the high-powered wristwatch becomes a rucksack of instruments all by itself. Selecting a great watch to keep you company is a balance of personal taste, form, and function. On an all-day hike through miles of trails or while cycling winding bike paths, an athletic timepiece should match your needs. Having a multifunctional instrument on your wrist means you don’t have to pack extra gear and gives you peace of mind. These watches have a lot to offer: The Victorinox Swiss Army Night Vision integrates LEDs for dial illumination, flashlight, and strobe functions; Citizen’s Eco-Drive Altichron offers an altimeter that measures heights up to 32,000 feet and depths to 1,000 feet below sea level, provides an electronic compass and is water-resistant to 200 meters. The Tissot T-Touch Expert Men’s Sport watch features a Touch-activated screen and provides 16 functions, including two alarms, altitude difference meter, a compass, azimuth, thermometer, two time zones, and relative and absolute air pressure. The Pro Trek PRG260 watch from Casio America, Inc. offers five alarms, sunrise and sunset time, a duplex LCD display, and one-touch Triple Sensor technology (for barometric pressure, altitude, temperature, and compass).
