 Skydiving gear - Analog vs Digital Altimeter

Every skydiver is starting their formation by using an analog altimeter. The visibility of those altimeter makes them the best choice for students. But at some point, you may want to consider switching to a digital one.

So what are the pros & cons of using a digital altimeter over an analog one?

First, a clarification: this discussion revolves around the altimeter display, not the underlying hardware. Altimeters with mechanical internal aneroid capsules have analog displays; those with electronic pressure sensors can have either a digital or analog display.


Let’s discuss those in this video:
