The Altimaster III was originally designed and manufactured by SSE, Inc. Alti-2 acquired the manufacturing rights in 1999 and included the device in their first line of sport altimeters. Altimaster III is no longer manufactured, but still serviced by Alti-2 subject to availability of parts. The Altimaster Galaxy was introduced with the new Millenium as a generational replacement.

repair 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: mike999, 2011-03-18

I've owned my SSE altimaster III for aprox 15 years. I dropped it. Sent it into ALTI and they repaired it for free. Only charged me 15 bucks for the Ship and handle. What a great company. Thanks

A good rugged altimeter 4 out of 5 stars

There are several versions around including the old Altimaster III made by SSE. I'd recommend getting the latest Alti 2 manufactured model as the lens is FAR FAR easier to replace. They are all (SSE's and ALTI-2'S versions) good altimeters and can take a beating. I still prefer the larger Altimaster II design as ity can be read easier by you and by others in your RW formation who might glance at it. I also like the adjustment to be done with a knob (like on the Altimaster II) rather than a bezel ring (Altimaster III design) as it is less likely to get accidently re-adjusted while you are moving around on a crowded plane. These altimeters have withstood the test of time and come out shining. I just wish someone would make an altimteter with a shatter proof mineral glass lens. Look at the new I-Phone screen, you cannot scratch that thing if you try. Why should older altimeters always look like hell with cloudy scratched lenses? I guess it brings some business to the manufacturers for replacement lenses, and plastic is safer than glass, but I'd LOVE an altimeter whose lens looked great after years of service.

The industry standard scores again ! 4 out of 5 stars

What else can I really say about this ? It is a great altimeter that I would recommend to anyone. The only reason I found some Cons was because there was a line for them. They are really minute things. It is a great alti and is very accurate. Buy one !
