altimeter watches

Dear all

Spending quite a bit of time in mountains, I wear an altimeter watch. I started with a Casio but I got fed with the high cost of getting a battery fitted -it had to be sent off to retain the waterproof seal. I then swapped to a Suunto due to the rave reviews - apparently it was the brand and the fact that a new battery could easily be fitted without it losing its waterproofness. However, for sometime now, the altimeter has been very erratic to the point where it has become pointless. I am pondering swapping back to Casio - which now have a number of solar-powered models. This being the most likely one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-Pro-T...ywords=prg-270.
Anyone got any thoughts on Casio vs Suunto. I actually prefer the looks of the Suunto Core, but a bit reluctant to buy it, as it's the updated version of the faulty one I have.

Cheers

Steve
