Re: [dpfire29] which altimeter to buy for beginner skydiver
I'd agree with the other recommendations; a Galaxy is a great first altimeter, particularly if you can find one used.
The Altitrack is a fantastic piece of technology, and I own one, but I waited (patiently - over 5 years to be exact!) till I found one used at a really great price. They don't pop up used all that often, but sometimes you can get a deal.
IMHO, since you're going to be spending a ton of money on a lot of things as you build up your pile of skydiving gear, the additional $250 you'd spend on a new Altitrack (vs. a new Galaxy) could be better put towards other gear (such as a rig, or a jumpsuit, or helmet) for now.
