Casio G-Shock GW-9200-1er Riseman watch£175.00

A uniquely featured and tough outdoors watch

BikeRadar score4/5

The Riseman is a sturdy outdoors watch with some useful features.

For a start, it’s solar-powered, so it won’t eat batteries when using its altimeter (which can be calibrated to work with either absolute or relative altitudes), barometer and temperature gauge. It also receives time calibration via daily radio signals for six global territories, including Europe and the UK.

The display is easy to navigate, too. The backlight is clear and precise, and the light is large and easy to hit with gloves on.

The temperature sensor is roughly 7° out on the wrist, and takes about 30 minutes to equalise with ambient air temperature when taken off. Alternatively, strap it to your hydration pack for a precise reading.

It may lack the outdoors functions and electronic compass of Suunto’s Core, but it’s cheaper and still incredibly useful.
