    Introduction

    GPS units have become increasingly pervasive in the past five years. Predominantly in Europe but also emerging as a major consumer product in the states, GPS technology has invaded palm pilots, automobile dashboards, and more recently, wristwatches. But when I came across the first GPS wristwatch at a local sporting outlet, the Garmin Forerunner, I was appalled by the bulk of the product. I for one, was not interested in running with that brick strapped to my wrist. But I still needed a good all-around device for hiking and mountian biking, just minus the massive size of the Forerunner. So when the Suunto X9i came to my attention, I was immediately interested. From the photos I saw, the unit looked about the size of a normal wristwatch, wearable both during sports and casually. And the feature set was unparalleled. Naturally I was excited when I recieved the review unit from Suunto.
