    I love my Ares II. The screen is big enough that I never struggle to see it and it reads accurately right out of the box. I got the blue version (and a pink wristband) and I love that’s it’s unique so I’ll always know which one is mine. I prefer the bigger screen on the Ares II vs the Viso II, even at the expense of it being quite a bit bigger all around. My only complaint is that the screen does scratch easier than I thought it would, and the black frame around my screen came out of the box kind of messed up — that doesn’t impact function, though, only my perfectionist tendencies.

    The ARES II Digital Altimeter is by far the best I have found in the digital readout altimeters. I am a older guy in the 50year range. my eyes are no longer as they were. I own a higher priced digital Altimeter that has much more options. But I have a tough time seeing the display, so to me it isn't worth what I had paid, if I can't see it when it matters to me most. I got ARES II Digital Altimeter and fell in love with it on the first jump. This thing works and matched my Alti2 altimeter to the tee. I working on winging my self off the analog alti and to gain trust in the new digital age. This I believe is the ticket I have been looking for. The price is worth it if it works. This one works! I also like the aluminum housing and hard glass display.

    Guys, this thing is where it's at. It's not just a slightly bigger version of the Viso, although the casing is only slightly bigger. They managed to get the screen much further out toward the edges so without making a much larger alti on your arm you end up with a bigger, more beautiful display that shows everything you're already used to and adds a super simple light function if you ever need it. The metal housing and glass display feel so much more premium and should hold up a long time. Totally worth selling some old stuff so you can afford one :-)
