watch for mountain climbing and hikingPaying $400 for a watch may sound like a ridiculous idea, but the Suunto Core Extreme Edition Everest Watch may be worth every penny if you’re a hiker, mountain climber, or do a lot of travelling. It’s a watch that does everything but give you a chauffeured drive to your doorstep. It includes an altimeter (which helps you to calculate altitude, ascent and descent speed, and more), barometer (which you can use to predict weather), compass (to give you direction), and depth measurement (perfect for snorkelers, as the watch is water resistant). It’s a limited edition watch (only 8848 units were made, the number signifying the ), and each has Apa Sherpa’s signature engraved on the back. It’s a whole tracking station, all on your wrist. It’s not for everyone, but for the outdoor enthusiast in your life, you can hardly do any better than this.

A portion of the proceeds from the Suunto Core Extreme Everest will go directly to befefit the Apa Sherpa Foundation.
