The HighGear AXIS watch is a true winner. It is cheaply priced compared to watches with equal features but its low price does not reflect its quality. I work for the Forest Service and my watch takes a beating every day very hot conditions and very fine dust, not to mention impacts. With daily calibration the altimeter is within a 100 feet of actual altitude. The watch is a fair amount smaller then its brother the SUMMIT model, but it still has a large, easy to read face. Its thermometer is relatively accurate on the wrist, more so then I thought or heard. HighGear claims that it is the smallest watch with its features and from what I have seen from the other brands
it is. The barometer is a nice feature that seems to predict weather change fairly reliably. The digital compass can be a life saver. If you always wanted a watch with Altimeter, barometer, and thermometer, at a reasonable price
then the Axis cannot be beaten. Those who want the smallest multi sensor watch should take a peek at this one. I dont believe you will be disappointed with this watch.
NOTE** The Summit model Is truly BIG!
