Hi folks,
my neighbour is currently in Afghanistan and then he is off to Alaska.
Where he is in Afghan, the american px has Origo altimeters at a very cheap price.
Does anyone have any experience of these watches, good or bad? Have googled a bit and the results vary.
He was looking at the rendezvous peak model.
Thanks in advance, Den

I bought one 3 years ago. I hated it! The altimeter is really bad. it gives wrong measurements more often than correct ones and it is very hard to adjust it to the correct altitude. When you adjust it, it will immediately start to give a different altitude even before you start to move! On top of this it eats battery like crazy. I was attracted by the low price in comparison with other altimeters, but in my opinion it is just not worth it.
