Product Description

Product Description

The world's smallest and lightest GPS, the Suunto X9i wristop computer also comes equipped with a compass, altimeter, barometer, and time. Navigate with your X9i using a pre-made route or simply mark home and find home to never get lost again! Features 12 channels, a loop antenna, and stores up to 50 routes/500 waypoints, and 8000 trackpoints. The X9i is now compatible with digital computer mapping software for your PC, such as National Geographic TOPO!, Fugawi, and Memory Maps. You can plan your routes on the software, or record your journeys on the X9i to later upload, analyze, and share with fellow adventurers.

The ultimate tool for the cross-sports enthusiast who wants to plan his or her journey carefully, the Suunto X9i wrist-top GPS is compact (it's the world's smallest outdoor GPS), well-designed, and straightforward. The unit combines an advanced GPS system with a host of route functions, so you'll always know where you are and where to go next. The system is particularly useful when exploring unfamiliar terrain, such as during long hikes, camping excursions, or backroad cycling trips. Add in such features as an altimeter (ideal for climbers), barometer, digital compass, thermometer, and several training tools and you have a versatile, powerful device that's prepared for almost any outdoor scenario.

In addition to helping you plot routes, the X9i's GPS computer indicates the direction of an upcoming waypoint, calculates the remaining distance, and estimates the arrival time. Meanwhile, users who like to pace themselves while cycling or hiking will appreciate the "current speed" and "distance traveled" readings. And when you're ready to head home, simply activate the Find Home setting, which guides you back to the starting point or home position, or the Track Back function, which retraces a recorded route.

Safety always comes first when hiking in the wilderness, which is why the X9i comes with an altimeter to measure the altitude and vertical speed, a 3D digital compass, and a barometer that reads sea level pressure and absolute pressure. You can also program the alarm to sound you when you reach a specific altitude or warn you of upcoming storms. And should you find yourself stranded during inclement weather, the compass and altimeter will help guide you to safety.

The X9i excels as a training tool as well. The altimeter is great for climbers and hikers, while the stopwatch and advanced timing functions let you record lap and split times of runs and other activities. Users can then feed the recorded information into the specially designed Trek Manager PC software to analyze and plan their training (it even keeps a training diary). And those who want to gain a deeper understanding can create their own activity reports, complete with photos and text.

From a GPS perspective, Trek Manager helps users plan their routes on a digital map, print out customized maps, and download routes directly to the X9i. Other functions include the ability to edit and erase existing routes and create graphical altitude profiles so that route planning is fast, accurate, and simple.

Finally, all the features are built within a sporty black wrist-top housing that functions as a regular watch when you're not exercising. Additional features include a USB charger and PC connector (for charging via a PC), an easy-to-use menu-based interface, and water-resistance to 100 feet. The X9i weights 0.17 pounds and is backed by a two-year warranty on parts and labor.

Color Name: Black
I found the remarks of the one other positive reviewer quite a relief: the guy who pointed out that good performance of the GPS (i.e. the key unique feature distinguishing this watch from other Suunto models) hinges critically on whether or not you first get your satellite 'fix' properly. I have found that, if you wait the very first time you use it, to get a proper (not flashing) firm fix, then subsequent fixes have been relatively rapid (usually around 2 minutes in an urban environment. Once you have a lock-on, then subsequent performance is relatively fine.

I have a few minor gripes about the software visualisation. When it does loose satellite connection, rather than not graphing for the drop out period of time, the software includes the squiggly deviations to route when it can't locate you. This has the consequence that some journeys appear like I fly around or walk on water. This is not the case. I would prefer just blanks for drop-out periods of time. Any GPS device works much better in open spaces rather than built-up urban ramblings.

As a watch model, the comparable device is the Garmin forerunner. The Garmin probably has more 'stickability' and usability for its GPS (I have Garmin handheld for comparison). Its greater reception and stronger GPS reception is due to its bigger aerial. That means it's also bigger and probably emitting strange things into your arm. The battery life on Garmin receivers is very frustrating and I have had no problems with the x9i though its continual GPS use would be limited to 4-5 hours. Personally, I am prepared to live with the slightly more delicate reception of the x9i in order to use a much more elegant device.

I bought this watch as a gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it! It does everything you can imagine and he has fun showing it off, but it's practical uses are undeniable. He is a mountain biker and uses it for elevation, speed, barometer, altimiter, and the GPS directions. He is also a Land Surveyor and he uses the GPS and compass daily. He would recommend it to anyone serious about a GPS watch. It is the best we've found and I did my homework before I purchased it--others just don't compare!

I bought this for a 10 day trek across africa, followed up by a North Pole trek. What a challenge to get to operate, and when it did start to operate it would stop recording mid day. Also battery life is weak, didn't make it across africa. PS I'm a computer geek, so it may be user error but doubtful.

If what you want is a very small interface loaded w/ features and you're willing to sacrifice 'user friendliness' and graphic display, then this watch is for you. Navigating the various functions can be tricky and GPS, Compass and Altitude functions will need to calibrated regularly in order to be usably accurate. Also note that the GPS function quickly drains the rechargeable battery so for long outings you will need to use this function sparingly. Another factoid: although the watch is water proof to >50m (not sure exactly) the manual warns of pressing ANY button while the watch is submerged at any depth as this could short out the electronics. I returned this watch and decided to go with a hand held GPS device that has the same functions.

Color Name: Black
After two weeks of side-by-side usage, I've concluded that these watches are targeted at very different markets. Furthermore, in many respects, it seems like neither watch is totally ready for prime-time. Both have nice feature sets, but they each seem to be lacking some very important features to make them truly useful across several sports. The Suunto X9i seems to be targeted and more useful to the climbing crowd, whereas the Garmin Forerunner 405 seems targeted at the fitness/jogging crowd. Neither has the complete feature set that the above-average hiker/trail runner/mountain biker needs. Thus, if you purchase either, you have to accept the compromises inherit in one or the other.
If I was pressed to recommend one over the other, I very hesitantly lean towards the Garmin Forerunner 405 due to smaller size, better battery life, faster GPS synch, slightly better navigation screen and of course, lower price. I'm hesitant because of several important cons which I elaborate on below.
STATS:
Battery Life (w/ GPS): 4.5hr (X9i) vs. 8hr (405)
Battery Life (w/o GPS): 16d. (X9i) vs. 12d. (405)
Size: X9i is larger in every dimension than 405
Weight: 74g (X9i) vs. 60g (405)
Water Resistence: 100m (X9i) vs. 3m (405)
Heart Rate Monitor: No (X9i) vs. Yes (405)
Outside Temperature: Yes(X9i) vs. No (405)
CONS: Garmin Forerunner 405
1) Does not display raw latitude/longitude position on standard screen. You can save a waypoint, which they call "location", and then edit that point to see the latitude/longitude (displayed in non-decimal format).
2) Does not have On/Off button to save battery-life.
3) Comes with very basic software with limited maps. Cannot export tracks into GPX format.
4) Difficult to upload waypoints for future route.
