    G-Shock Which Keeps Accumulated Vertical Ascent/Descent?

    Hi,

    My wife and I ski and hike a lot. We've had a Suunto watch for some years that does an excellent job of keeping track of altitude AND cumulative vertical feet ascended/descended.

    It disappeared recently, so we need a new one. We'd be happy to just replace it with the same model, except the Suunto isn't very water resistant (30m).

    Is there a G-Shock that does both altitude and keeping track of cumulative vertical feet, with better WR?

    Thanks!

    Most of the Protrek do of course.

    At least for the G Shock you can go with :

    - The Riseman

    - The Rangeman

    Reading the specs, it does not look to me like any of those will do what a skier would want--keep track of the total amount of vertical feet one skied, so that if one went down the same hill with a 1000 foot decline to it 20 consecutive times, the watch would know that you skied 20,000 vertical feet.

    Yea, I don't think any g-shock has that. But I'm not 100 %. There are few with altimeter...

    They all have 200m WR though, so it should be safer then Suuntos 50m. I think you are better off with Suunto, more professional designed watches.

    The Rangeman does store accumulated ascent and descent but the manual is unclear concerning the total amount. The PRG-270 for instance stores ASC and DSC up to 99,999 m or 327,997 ft - then it resets to zero and starts again. I think I'd prefer the PRG-270 as it also has a treklog feature which keeps updating the automatically stored values (MIN, MAX, ASC, DSC) even when exiting the altimeter mode while the Rangeman has to stay in altimeter mode to update those values.

    cheers, Sedi
