    Protrek 2500

    Hey everyone, I just got this mail today. I am still trying to familiarize myself with all the functions. I am curious what current/previous owners think of all the functionality included in this piece. I personally bought for hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, etc. Figured it would be a nice sturdy watch that includes a compass, temp, barometer, altimeter...just to name a few.

    Thank you!Name:  IMG_0072.JPG

    Not familiar with your particular Watch, but the COMP, BARO, MOON AGE would be good for you to have with your active lifestyle. The TEMP will basically tell you your wrist temp while wearing it. Would have to remove for a period to get ambient temp. Altimeter not pure GPS location. The altitude value is extrapolated from barometric pressure measurement relative to 'normal' barometric pressure at sea level. Is a decent rough estimate. If out lost could be helpful to know roughly if your ascending or descending in the blind.

    Yeah I wouldn't want to guide a plane into land from the altitude readout, but otherwise the compass is fine and the barometer is, well, a barometer.

    It's a good watch, I'd love a 2500 in truth, but as a serious outdoor tool it's prob lacking compared to SUUNTO and other more pricey alternatives.

    Go enjoy. Just take a proper compass and map, and know how to use them.

    It's a good un.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    Look at the last few pages of the running BARO thread on this page. See the comments and how the trends on the watch's graph appear. Absolute pressure value not as important as the trend or rapid drop in pressure indicating probability of precipitation.

    Exactly, it's all about the change which is why the big graph is a good thing on the 2500
