As an admitted gadget freak, I've been looking at gadget-laden watches for some time - although never at anything (by my definition) very expensive. I've thought about a Casio Pathfinder for years, then a Suunto - but could never get over the size of those things. I also looked into the Nike Ascent ACG (now called the "Lance 4"?). It's smaller, but now I'd also like to get something a bit more striking. So, anybody have a Tissot T-Touch (or a Hamilton Multi Touch) that they could comment on, or point me to a review? Seems like a nice combination of gadgetry. I've looked at a couple of watch forums, but quickly became overwhelmed with just how much I don't know about mid to high end timepieces. For the curious, check out Tissot's T-Touch web page . The demo seems to work best under IE.
Open to other suggestions as well, but I'm probably still going to stick to the beginner level stuff - no Rolex or Omega (yet!).
I remember really liking that watch until some people brought up some large flaws that has. Its been awhile so I don't remember exactly. I think one of them was that the watch has no lume on its hands.
Look into the Omega X-33. One of my dream watches...
I'm a big fan of the Tissot. They also make one with orange markings and an orange band that looks pretty cool. I have a gadget/watch forum in my sig I would like to invite you to post your question to as well.
My dad has had the metal bracelet T-Touch for about a year now. He loves it!
The only gripe I know of that he has about it is the barometric pressure readout only displays in HectoPascals, and only has a very small range of adjustment for calibration (+/- 10HP I believe). Also, the thermometer tends to read very near the skin surface temperature of the wearers wrist. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img]
The hands do have some glow to them, as do the hour markers.
Thanks for the info/links. I found one to try on and liked most everything about it, except that the digital display has no backlight. But hey - that's why we all have flashlights, right? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] In any case, one is headed my way - can't wait!
