Whart are some special features of a wristop computer?


If you are a serious outdoor fitness enthusiast and adventurer, you might be interested in checking out the most sophisticated type of wristop computer, which includes downloadable topographical maps. These maps are especially useful for trail and adventure guides, as well as for adventure racers and military personnel.

The Suunto X10 GPS Wristop Computer is one example of a high-end, multi-functional portable GPS system that plays many roles:

  • GPS watch: The X10 model has all the standard features you expect from a GPS watch, including a stopwatch, alarm, and lap counter.
  • Watch altimeter: A barometer in the X10 measures atmospheric pressure.
  • Wrist compass: The X10’s built-in compass helps point you in the right direction, even when you can’t get a GPS signal.

The Suunto X10 also syncs with your computer, so you can download routes in advance, and it allows you to access to National Geographic topographical maps and Google Earth while you’re in the field.

Visit your local Sun & Ski Sports shop for expert advice about the latest features in wristop computers.
