The Tissot T Touch Trekking T001.520.47.361.00 • T0015204736100 is the perfect wrist worn choice for keeping all those handy trekking tools close at hand. This is not a watch, but a trekker’s tool chest designed to be kept immediately handy for easy use during all the situations an adventurer faces.
All of the most important tools used by an outdoors person are kept literally at your fingertips with the Tissot T Touch Trekking T001.520.47.361.00 • T0015204736100: altimeter, barometer, compass, and thermometer. A small display window is where you’ll read all of the data offered up by your amazing watch sized tool box. One touch and you’ll get an update on what the current temperature is, what the weather is currently, and, more importantly, what the immediate forecast is for where you are. While you will certainly be able to tell what the weather is at any given moment, knowing what’s coming around the next hour mark is a great advantage to the outdoors man or woman.
Another touch, and you’ll see the hand swoop around to give you a look at what your exact heading is, allowing you to get your bearings quickly and easily. No need to fish around in your backpack for your compass, or try to stuff that bulky thing in your pocket. Instead, use this watch to wear that tool right where it will be immediately handy. More touches of your fingertip and more information will pop up on your watch, such as altitude in feet or meters to help you keep track of exactly where you are and how your trek is progressing. There is certainly a lot to like about this watch!
Except that it isn’t a watch. Individuals who are looking for a dial on a band that goes around their wrist and tells them what time of day it is will not be happy with this purchase. There is only one hand on the dial, meaning that this device could not tell the time if it wanted to. Although the “watch” does about everything else under the sun, it is not a time keeping piece, and so is not going to be a good purchase for somebody who wants an everyday watch.
The Tissot T Touch Trekking T001.520.47.361.00 • T0015204736100 has so many tools and functions, and a price tag of a mere $875. There is no denying that having that many useful tools literally at your fingertips frees you up to enjoy your adventure without worrying about losing your compass or packing around heavy gizmos. This watch is a great buy.
