The Definitive Travel Gift Guide 2006

Perfect For: The Great Outdoorsman

Do you have an Inspector Gadget in your life? Did he buy the television watch (complete with bunny ears) when it came out in 1982? In that case he'll relish the Suunto X9i, which trumps all the other techie watches out there for its genuine usefulness in the great outdoors. It's stuffed with a virtual kitchen sink of features, including an altimeter to gauge the rate of ascent while hiking, a barometer to warn of inclement weather, a compass (even though he never gets lost), and—the killer app—a GPS unit. It lets him plug in preplanned destinations and waypoints, create routes, and check progress. You can even program in a stop for him at the convenience store to pick up milk on the way home.

X9i wristwatch, $500
