Speed, Average Speed,
skiometer evolved from the need for information necessary
for monitoring my progress while nordic skiing. I then
realized that it could apply to alpine skiing when interfaced
with an altimeter. If you've used a road or mt.bike computer
then you know the value of the information they offer.
That same information is now available to alpine and nordic
skiers and is every bit as useful.
Based on an adaptation of a wireless bike computer and
altimeter the Skiometer weighs just 3.5 oz (Nordic) 5.5
(Alpine). Precision wheel bearings allow accurate reliable
readings from the wireless wristwatch readout. Made from
tough impact resistant plastics the Skiometer can easily
survive the punishment of even the most aggressive skier.
