Origo Rendezvous Peak

The weather in Yellowstone National Park is unpredictable. Yellowstone can hit you with sunshine, rain, sleet and snow in the same day.

To prepare outdoor enthusiasts for the unpredictability that Yellowstone and other similar places offers, Origo has launched its Rendezvous Peak line of watches. Origo advertises the Rendezvous Peak as a multi-sensor watch that provides needed information for outdoor excursions.

Origo packs a thermometer, altimeter, barometer, compass and chronograph into a sleekly-designed black casing. The watch's added features are a backlight, alarm, water resistant to 165 feet and short-term weather forecast.

The multi features do come in handy on the trails of Yellowstone. The Origo Rendezvous Peak can store altimeter data readings, so you can track changes in altitude along your trek. The chronograph is useful to time and store your trail runs to measure your performance improvements over time. The weather function is a nice novelty but is not consistent. Origo does manage your expectations with the weather forecasting feature by stating that it only predicts short-term weather conditions.

The watch fits comfortably and the display is easy to read for the Rendezvous Peak Black Standard. Origo offers the watch with a reverse display which is more difficult to read.

The weather forecast feature is a nice novelty but set your expectations accordingly for what to expect from this feature. Origo offers the watch with a standard or reverse display. The Rendezvous Peak has a suggested retail price of $180.
