The Altimeter Weather Watch sport watch (Model #RP107, MSRP $300) is bundled with PC software and a docking station (RZ910), and computer port linkage (RS232) for downloading information from exercise routines or mounting onto equipment such as bicycle handlebar. It measures altitude and vertical speed (feet per second), while monitoring outside temperature (Fahrenheit) and barometric pressure for current and 12-24-hour weather forecast. With a chronograph stopwatch timer that extends up to just under 100 hours, and a heart rate monitor with wireless chest strap it can be programmed for an audible and visual alarm for your optimal heart rate training zone, as well as altitude alarm warning, daily alarm and three other event alarms (MSRP $200).
