Father's Day Gift Idea #5: Suunto Xlander Wristop Computer Watch

Socks and watches tend to be popular Father’s Day gifts, but since we’re obviously going to pass on the socks, we thought we’d feature a very stylish watch that is chockful of functions geared for the active Dad, but yet doesn’t look like a PDA with a wristband attached to it. The Suunto Xlander Wristop Computer is a watch, altimeter, barometer, and compass in a stylish aluminum body with a carbon-fiber back and mineral crystal glass. It comes with a weatherproof black leather wristband and is built to be waterproof even if submerged up to 100 feet.

The watch displays day, time, and date with three programmable alarms plus a stopwatch and countdown timer. Additional features on this model include a user-configurable logbook, complete calendar clock, and advanced memory functions.

The altimeter features a range up to 9,000 meters (29,500 feet), which puts all 14 of the world«s 8000+ meter summits within your range. It has also an adjustable altitude alarm, as well as different memory functions. With the logbook function you can record total and cumulative vertical ascents and descents, as well as the number of runs skied. Also view your ascent/descent rate in feet per minute. (All measurements are also available in metric units.)

The electronic compass displays the cardinal or half-cardinal point and the North-South arrow and can display bearings with 3-degree accuracy. You can also set it to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a chosen direction in the terrain. The declination adjustment function allows you to correct the difference between the true North and magnetic North.
