Suunto X9i GPS watch

The X9i watch by Suunto is made for outdoor sports and survival enthusiasts who need to know where they are and where they've been. At the heart of the watch is a 12-channel GPS receiver with three feet of precision, but the watch also incorporates a compass, an altimeter, and a barometer. Track Back and Find Home buttons point in the right direction if you get lost. You can plan and review routes using Suunto's Trek Manager software, and the Track Exporter package links with third-party applications such as TOPO! and Google Earth. The latter enables you to quickly share your trips with others, plotting them on a 3D map with visual touches such as flyovers. Amazon is selling the watch for anywhere between $374 and $699, depending on whether or not certain discounts apply.
