I am in the need for some basic electronics equipment for flying but unsure what to get.I was just going to get an alti watch but for around the same price I can purchase a Garmin 60,that would give me all the info I need .Should I get both or just rely on the GPS.

Another vote for the Garmin 60Csx. I use the same screen shot shown in the post below and also the information page with additional fields showing glide ratio and glide ratio to target. This helps give you an idea of whether you are going to make your target. If you set the barometric altimeter before take off it will give you accurate altitude reading. If paramotoring I generally just use this but sometimes I add my wrist-mounted Ascent vario, as per hill flying.
