which tough, trail watch? possible Suunto/ Casio content..
Was just looking at a timex expedition as a camping and bike trip watch. Not digital and not much in the way of features though(i’d have a gps with me if i was going anywhere i might need one) and I’ve no idea if they are actually any good either (opinions please!)Posted 4 years ago
So Im not after spending hundreds of pounds on one. It has to be able to take a beating if necessary, be water resistant ( 50m, although the anaraks amongst have probably already converted that into ATM’s ) and have features that would help me if I’m lost somewhere on my bike..what would I need, compass? Barometer? Altimeter? Laser pointer powerful enough to kill and cook a Bison. I quite like the look of the Suunto watches and don’t mind the Casio either. I ont like shiney, blingy or anything that makes my penis look bigger..what o the STW massif think?Posted 4 years agoScienceofficerMember
I have a cheapy timex expedition from a couple of years ago. It has a timer which is useful to remind me to eat, it tells the time and does alarm,stopwatch and has a compass, plus its waterproof to 100m.
It does everything needed pretty much, for me on a bike.Posted 4 years agoseadog101Subscriber

The strap being plenty long enough to go on the outside of my jacket
Compass, though not 100% accurate has kept me on the right track when signposts are gone.
Altimeter is more accurate than you’d expect.gribbleMember
Casio G shock look like they would survive a Zombie attack. Important as you would’ve want to be late for a meeting, especially with such a poor excuse.
I have a Suunto Vector, which has a compass, altimeter and barometer. All these things are essential for my desk job, being based in the wilderness of the south east.
The Timex Expedition watches also look very good and perhaps slightly better value. I would be happy with anything from the above, my choice was more down to the fact that i liked the look of he Suunto watches and my old sports dive watch was going to be 2 x the cost to service and replace battery, so thought I would treat myself to a man watch.Posted 4 years agovondallySubscriber
g SHOCKS relativley indestructable….4 in 19 years all still work just the plastic fails, one survived a 35 mph off alas the rest of me did not!
Have a Suunto Vector……really nice all the bling bits lot clearer than a g shock BUT do you need all the bits on it………. may sell mine on as I have a suunto T heart rate monitor and that really does all i need.Posted 4 years ago
