Apple’s latest “one more thing” was a doozy: A high-tech watch that CEO Tim Cook hopes will “redefine what people expect” from a wearable device. The watch does much more than tell the time—but what exactly does it do? And what can’t it?

The $350 Apple Watch is meant to be worn throughout the day and relies on its connection to an iPhone for much of its functionality. It can track health activity, communicate with friends and run a wide range of apps. It can even make retail payments.

Trails provides offline topographic maps and helps you make the most of your next outdoor adventure, even without an active internet connection. It records your GPS track along with various statistics including altitude, ascent/descent, speed, pace, and duration.

Zoomable graphs for key statistics along with heat maps provide deep insights and complete the logbook of your outdoor journeys.

Best Backpacking GPS: Large screen smartphones (iPhone 6 Plus or Samsung Galaxy s6/s7) out-perform conventional GPS units in almost every way. This post contains tons of tips/instructions on how to best use your smartphone as a backpacking GPS, including up to 10 days of battery life in the field without re-charging.

There are several excellent Apps like  Gaia GPS   that let you preload maps and GPS tracks into your smartphone before your trip. Then when you are out on the trail without WiFi or cell service, you can use the preloaded maps along with the iPhone’s GPS to do all the mapping and navigating you need. The downloaded maps are essentially free, and if you already own an iPhone, the cost of using it as a GPS/Mapping device for backpacking is very reasonable—essentially just the cost of the Mapping/GPS App. The GPS units in current smartphones are quite good and have similar accuracy to traditional GPS units like a Garmin Montana .

To clarify a common misconception: You do NOT need WiFi or Cellular connection for the GPS to work ; however you do need to have pre-downloaded the map content to your App in order to have your current location show up on a map.
