    I have a number of wrist watches, but my eye sight has changed over the years and it is very hard to read the time and other functions, (arms are getting shorter :cry:). Also I sweat more now then when I was younger.

    So, I am looking for a Pocket Watch and I would love a digital with the features of my Casio G Rangeman or roughly there abouts. (Time and compass).

    I have searched this forum and a few others. Looked all over Amazon and even used Google. I can only find cheap digital ones. Now I am not looking for a $500.00 watch but a nice $100~200 quality one would be nice.

    Any help would be appreciated in finding such a critter.

    I think you may be describing an inexpensive smartphone.

    The Spovan pocket watch costs about $50. Not that many functions but I believe that is as close as you get to a digital pocket sports watch

    from my S-A-M-S-U-N-G S9+ via T-A-P-A-T-A-L-K

    @chaosmagnet you are very right. In fact my smartphone has been working just fine for time, compass and maps. But I would like to have a backup and something to fit in my coin pocket.

    @Reidar Chr. L. Guttormsen Thank you, I have been looking at that watch/compass. I was hoping for a better quality time piece. But it maybe the route I may have to go.

    I don't know how much of a better time piece you can get by spending more money; unless you are looking for other features (shock absorption, thermometer, barometer, etc) Most if not all digitals use rather inexpensive "movements" which don't really get much better commensurate with price.
