Objectives: My primary use of a wrist altimeter is to do quick checks on how close I am to the top of the peak. It is faster to glance at your wrist than to turn on a GPS. And also, in some cases, to record the elevation of key bridges and other features when in the car, or in canyons where the satelite altitude reading on my GPS was unreliable. I was interested in a wrist altimeter because it would be quicker to read. Electronic altimeters also allow you to set the units to match the map.
