Like a carbon fiber racing bike ridden by a 350 pound couch potato, the Timex E-Altimeter ($200) has the ability to make you look somewhat active without a Herculean effort on your part. With a sophisticated analog dial that goes beyond the oft pedestrian aesthetic of the “takes a licking and keeps on ticking” brand, the E-Altimeter looks like it could command many times its modest price. The digital altimeter has a range of -400 to 25,000 feet, so you can go from a semi-deep dive on the Great Barrier Reef to the summit of Annapurna III and relive your records via the altitude recall function.The cool black case and contrasting yellow rubber strap just add to the adventurous look, even if you only blow bubbles in your hot tub and poorly attempt to Parkour off your garage roof.
