Drawbacks, not dealbreakers

There is a lot of complexity to this watch which means you may need some time to figure out how to use it. This watch is fairly bulky. 


Performance: What makes this one of the best watches on the market? Simple: its performance! It includes a built-in altimeter, compass, and spot-on GPS tracking. And, if you were thinking of relaxing in a hot tub after a cold day on the mountain, this product is water resistant up to 100 meters. 

Battery life clocks in at around 200 hours, which is better than most other GPS watches around. The steel and crystal design can handle a good deal of wear and tear, and you'll find this watch has a surprisingly long lifespan. Best of all, the silicone straps are snug around your wrist, making it extremely comfortable to wear. 

Features: Want to receive notificaitons to your watch as you receive messages on your phone? No problem! While paired with your phone, the Suunto allows you to see who's calling or texting. Another feature to brag about? This watch has a built-in pressure sensor which gives you weather and altitude data while recording speed, distance, and time as you ski down the slopes. All movement data is synced and stored back to the Suunto app so you can easily access or share. 

One thing we love most is that you can download trail maps straight to your watch. This means you can navigate in remote areas without cell service. 

Price: At $300, this is the priciest gadget on our list. However, when you consider the quality, durability, and versatility, you can understand why we think it's a worthwhile investment.
