ABC Watches Functions


An altimeter measures the altitude of an object above a fixed level, e.g how high above sea level. A watch with an altimeter helps with navigation and map reading. It determines the altitude based on changes in barometric pressure. 


A barometer predicts the weather and storms by monitoring changes in air pressure. On the field, this can show you signs of a storm so that you are not caught unprepared. Some watches also have a storm alarm function. Together with the altimeter, it also helps you with navigation.


A compass in a wrist watch is a navigational function that makes it possible to determine direction, position and location from a point of reference such as the cardinal direction points of N, S, E and W.  

A compass is a convenient and useful feature to have in your wrist watch. The navigational device will always come handy when you want to tell the direction or location of a place or of something.


This is a useful feature for monitoring temperature changes in your environment.

Women's GPS Sports Watches

Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information.

A very useful feature when outdoors. With a GPS watches track routes, waypoints and elevation and even make your own courses. 

It will help you with navigation and route tracking. Use Connected GPS during run mode to see real-time stats like pace and distance on your wrist.

Tide Function and Depth Measurement

Watches with tide function and depth measurements are ideal for scuba diving, fishing, snorkeling and outdoor adventures.
