Watches are great for average day hike but they have a big drawback, that tiny battery powers your GPS antenna along with everything else. I am new to PNW but they were not the best in East Coast foliage, perhaps one with BT that can sync with an external BT logger with its own battery...

Battery is an excellent reason to switch from a dedicated, hand-held GPS to a GPS watch for backpacking trips.

I say this from personal experience with both types of devices, not from guessing what they might be like.
