Suunto E Escape Handheld Altimeter Memory Barometer Weather for Parts/repair | eBay
This Suunto altimeter relies on barometric pressure and a correct altitude reference point to calculate absolute altitude. This means alimeter as barometric pressure changes, the reference altitude must be reset. This is a disadvantage if one does not have a ready reference point ie, if I knew what the altitude was, I wouldn’t need the unit! So in that respect, it’s only accurate in measuring absolute altitude when the barometric pressure is stable ie, time periods of a few hours, as opposed to over-nighters or changing weather conditions.
But many trail guides list r203 altitude, so the reference point can be easily set at the beginning of a day hike, and will remain accurate as long as the weather is stable. However, one of my primary uses for the product is to keep a running log of my total altitude gained and lost on trails, and it does work well for this purpose.
For example, trails that guidebooks list as having a gain of ‘ from trailhead to highest point may actually have a total gain of ‘ because of the rambling ups and downs of the path. Small, lightweight, and easy to read display. There was a problem loading comments right now. This great little portable device seems to be highly accurate. My previous experience was with an aircraft altimeter. The Suunto Escape gives the same readings as my aircraft altimeter when used side by side.
The buttons are a little hard to push for a person with arthritic hands, but a younger person would have no problem. The manual is hard to understand; otherwise, I would give it 5 stars.
I bought this as a backup to my airplane’s altimeter, likely a different application than most buyers. I also use it riding bikes, hiking, or just driving. While this product has features for avid climbers, I wanted to know “How high are we? How high was that hill we just climbed or descended? If you have the same questions, you will love this product. It offers a large, stable digital readout with resolution to 3 feet; simple calibration for barometric pressure; it’s fairly alyimeter and lightweight; water-resistant; and has a well-made, elegant product feel.
It can also be used as a altimetter pressure and temperature monitor. I’m not qualified siunto comment on its suitability for heavy-duty climbing and hiking, but I love it for everyday use and as backup to my airplane altimeter. I purchased this for my husband for a gift because he likes to hike.
The altimeter is easy to use and seems to be very accurate. I wanted a compact altimeter. The smart-looking Suunto fit the bill and then some with barometer, duunto, time, and more.
Amazon had the best price, and my husband is delighted with his gift. My husband got this for hiking with our kids.
It is easy to use and very handy. My husband loves it!!! This is my second altimeter by Suunto. In fact it gets precise values for altitude. Get fast answers from reviewers. Please make sure that auunto are posting in the form of a question.
