Suunto X10 GPS Watch – The Smallest GPS Watch in the World!

Suunto X10 GPS Watch

The Suunto X10 GPS (Global Positioning System) watch has been awarded a “Best of Adventure Gear” nod (2009) from National Geographic Adventure Magazine. It has all the capabilities of any other GPS plus some extra features while being the smallest and most lightweight GPS wristwatch in the world. It maps the terrain and alerts you of any possible dangers such as ditches, cliffs, open water, or thick forestry. Even in areas with no landmarks the X10 is able to pinpoint your exact latitude and longitude, let you know right where you are, and assist you to your destination.

This GPS device is perfect for hiking, hunting, fishing, or any outdoor excursion. You can program routes, change locations, pre-chart trips, save coordinates of newly found locations, or retrace your steps exactly to bring you back to the starting point. It comes equipped with an altimeter, barometer, thermometer, compass, stopwatch, and an advanced memory that can store up to 50 routes or 500 waypoints. The X10 can be used with a free software Suunto provides from their website “Suunto Track Exporter” or can be used with most common mapping programs such as Google Earth or National Geographic Topo.

This isn’t your normal watch or GPS tracking device, this outdoorsman tool has every functionality that could possibly be needed while traveling the great outdoors. It is water resistant and comes with a rechargeable battery that is capable of extremely long battery life. It is only 1.86 inches thick with a 5.2 inch casing diameter. It can be used in extreme temperatures, its specifications state -22 and +140 degrees ° F, and also has auto/sync time option via the GPS.

The Suunto X10 runs around $550 – $600, which is a few more dollars than the larger counterparts but the size and accessibility make the price difference worth it. We have seen GPS technology change the world, and as products like the X10 are introduced we can really see the positive change they can bring. The safety that a watch like this presents to the outdoorsman is awesome and necessary. This can be a lifesaving device.
