I understand that hardcore hiking enthusiasts can benefit from the detailed information provided by a watch with a built-in thermometer, altimeter, barometer, compass etc. but at some point you have to draw the line lest the watch ends up being an uncomfortable monstrosity. And in case you were wondering, that line can be found right before this Inovalley hiking watch, which has all of the aforementioned functionality plus a built-in, pop-up anemometer for measuring windspeeds.
Something tells me if you have the need to know the windspeed during your outdoor escapades you’re going to carry a dedicated unit that’s probably far more accurate than this one. And at ~$143 (£89.99) you can easily pick up both a decent Casio or Timex outdoors watch and a half-decent compact anemometer for the same price, and be better equipped in the long run.
