When you’re enjoying the great outdoors, it’s a given that you want to know where you are and keep track of the time. But what about the weather? Is there a storm rolling in? How will you know when it’s time to pull out the poncho and head for shelter – preferably BEFORE you’re already soaking wet? This watch features an altimeter, a barometer, and a compass – so you’re constantly in-the-know about your elevation, any changes in air pressure that would indicate a storm on the way, and the direction in which you’re headed.

Enhance your hike with some tunes using these fantastic earbuds. Up to five hours of battery time – or 15 with the included charging case – will keep you humming along on that ambitious day trip. The Bluetooth connection is top-notch, and they’re super comfy too. Read our review.
Finally, if you are going to be enjoying the great outdoors, looking at the leaves change or picking apples, you’ll want to make sure your iPhone is protected. There are some great choices for each model of Apple’s smartphone but the only way to protect your investment is to buy one… and use it. Some great options can be found here. Best of all, a rugged case for your iPhone need not break the bank. For example, the i-Bason iPhone X case is under $20! Check them out.
Grab some new gear, head outside and enjoy what’s left of the (mostly) decent weather. After all, “winter is coming,” and it will be here before you know it.
