Origo Rendezvous Peak

Being on a mountain with the Origo Rendezvous Peak strapped to your wrist is bound to give some peace of mind. The sports watch, designed for mountain-going athletes, has many of the same features on watches that cost twice the price.

Notably, the Rendezvous Peak has a barometer that tracks pressure from the last 30 hours outdoors to help it predict weather coming 12 hours in advance. It has a digital compass with a bearing lock and a thermometer.

The watch’s altimeter is touted to be accurate within one foot. It can track your altitude change for eight hours and then display a nifty graph that shows your progress.

For training, it has a 99-lap memory, a stop watch, and other standard features. It is water resistant to 165 feet.

The Rendezvous Peak watch is currently available for $180. www.origowatch.com
