Just OKWatch is soso. Looks are good, but function is what matters and that's what is lacks. There is no lap function for stop watch or altimeter. Setting the altitude/barometer takes forever because it only changes by 1 number at a time vs. Suunto which is 3 at a time. Also you have to do this constantly because it is not the most accurate. My biggest pet peeve was that there is no lock button for when trying to record elevation on the go. I don't know how many times I accidentally hit a button and changed screens and messed up my elevation log. If you just want minimum function and want to save a few bucks then I suppose this'll work. All in all though I'd recommend bearing down, paying the extra money and going with the Suunto Core (that's what I did). It seems to be more accurate that the high gear and comes with the screen lock and is much more functional all around.

Good watch, good price.I go thru watches more than most people. This is a durable watch with a lot of easy to use features, unlike some other higher end watches I've had. I use this watch daily and am very happy with it. It is easy to read, easy to use, and you can calibrate it in the field very easily. It has easy to use alarm, stopwatch, and timer features, along with the barometer, compass and altimeter. The barometer work well, the compass works ok but you should always have a legit compass in the backcountry and the altimeter function is easy to use too. The thermometer is obviously not great because it rests on your skin all the time, so for accurate readings you need to have it off your wrist for a couple minutes to get a more accurate reading. This watch is easy to read even at night without the light. The battery lasts a long time even with all these features. Its comfortable, not too bulky and never carries a smell after heavy use. It washes well too! Go get one!
