A pinnacle timepiece and an instrument of the outdoors.
Vestal was founded in Newport Beach, California, where it built its brand based on forward- thinking watch designs and apparel. The Guide ABC Watch brings a touch of this beach-culture ethic to the mountains, but it's truly an instrument of the outdoors. Rich in features, this watch offers the guidance of a compass and altimeter and the rich information provided by a thermometer, barometer, and multi-function chronograph. Small touches include an EL backlight and an LCD face with adjustable contrast—both proof of Vestal's dedication to details. This is a watch that will more than satisfy the dedicate mountain athlete and leave the information-hungry urbanite frothing at the mouth.
- Altimeter tracks altitude with live readout and altitude gain graph
- Barometer tracks barometric pressure and includes a weather-warning alarm, while digital thermometer tracks temperature
- Digital compass tracks your direction and displays it along the inner edge of the rotating bezel
- Chronograph functions includes a 24-hour stopwatch, 100-hour countdown timer, 28-city clock with world time, and other daily functions like date and current time
- Stainless steel case sealed to withstand submersion to 100 meters
- Polyurethane strap is tough, smooth against your wrist, and the 22mm-wide shape fits a medium-to-large wrist
- Modified surgical-grade stainless steel Oktolock strap buckle allows you to quickly and easily adjust and lock the wrist strap into place
- Large, easy-to-read LCD display with adjustable contrast
- EL backlight activates with the push of a button so you can see the face in low light or dark conditions
- User-accessible battery hatch makes it easy to change the battery by yourself

Good watch, bad sport watch
This is a good watch that keeps good time and even is clever enough not to instantly apply daylight savings in countries that don't have it. However the alarm chime and alarm function doesn't work although Vestal claims it's "faint". The thermometer and barometric pressure, even after calibration seem off. So what it does well it does well or not at all.
