Like Suunto's Extreme Edition Silver ($329), this watch has an altimeter, barometer, compass, storm alarm, sunrise/sunset times, etc. It's also engraved with the signature of Apa Sherpa, who this year made his record 20th summit of the big peak. (It's an edition of 8,848the mountain's elevation in meters.) Plus it speaks four languages, so your Swiss guide can borrow it, should things get really rough. Waterproof to 30 meters.
