NOT ReliableBeware - this watch eats five dollar batteries like candy and after a few months of pretty routine use the lower right button (ie the CRUCIAL one required to change modes, set the time etc) became very finicky - 99% of the time the press would not register. Coupled with the crappy battery life meant even after I had given up on switching functions and settled on using it only as a watch, it was excruciating just resetting the time when the battery died. Finally the button stopped working altogether and I retired it. ,,,,Do yourself a favor and find the giant stack of one star reviews before you throw down hard earned money on this clunker.

Looks but no gutsI have had a Core for just over a year I think and am now on my 3rd Black/Orange. The first lasted until this past Sept when, after a battery change, the display went to diagnotic display and there was no coming back. A tech helpdesk call agreed it was toast and they would replace. After ONLY a little over month I got my replacement. That lasted about 20 min before it did its first reset. That night it did another reset. Then is AM it locked up and after pulled/replaced the battery the screen was minus one row of pixels. They are sending out another Core (My last of Suunto watches). A fairly helpful, sort of thoughtful review. BYE

Simple to use. great quality...lack luster band though....So far I have only worn it around work, but doing back room in retail means things get banged up. so far its help up great, today i didn't check the weather and the storm alert let me know there was a storm coming(which there was briefly) and also gave me an idea that it was going to let up soon (again which it did)the menus seem hard at first...give it a day it becomes second nature. Now there's only 2 major downsides ive come across...the band just doesn't feel comfortable to me which is easy enough to fix i suppose and i do wish the back lighting was a little bit brighter. all in all though as my first ABC watch i gotta say im happy

Great Watch.....Cheesy Wristband (no I didn't eat it)I bought the Black/Orange knowing that the Orange part had to go. That band is gross in color and is not equal to the quality of the watch. I bought that model because it was the cheapest one with the black buckles. I made my own watch band out of military para cord.,,,,Positive:,, - menu options are fairly easy to follow, for the average person,, - ability to change your own battery easily,, - large digital display is bright,, - Was scared the watch would be to large on my wrist, but I like the size.,, - It's pretty accurate about pressure reading,,,,Negatives:,, - Ugly wristband,, - Temp reading gauge is near your arm so temp is about 12deg,,,,,,Brad,,

Solid watch, good looking, difficult to useFirstly, the watch is outstanding. I have the Alu White, which not only looks great, feels solid in hand. Very well constructed.,,,,The barometer function works very well. The altimeter seems to be fairly accurate once set properly. Other functions are pretty normal.,,,,The one complaint I have about this watch is that the UI/Function control is not intuitive. It takes some time with the guides to figure things out. (I still have no idea how to reliably switch between alti/baro modes) However, the guides are decent enough to figure things out. But for me, this is not a watch that can be operated naturally.,,,,All in all, I have zero regrets on my purchase.

Versatile and reliable computer on your wristThis watch has traveled all over the world with me and been helpful a surprising amount. Other than the short battery life and need for frequent battery replacement, this watch is accurate, reliable, and low key in the black/black configuration. In Malaysia this watch helped me navigate along with a street map when I otherwise would have totally lost. Granted a compass would have worked, but glancing casually at the watch made me stand out less (at least I think so). In the mountains of New Mexico I was climbing Wheeler Peak and the storm alarm went off... 30 minutes later lightning and rain started coming down just as we reached the treeline on our descent.

Best of class with a few minor flawsI couldn't decide between the ambit and core but eventually ended up going with the core. I have had it for a few months and it has performed very well. It is very light and I find it rather comfortable. I am 100% satisfied with the time, alti & baro, and compass features and their sub features. I knew coming into the purchase that the thermometer reading was going to be off but that wasn't too important. The logs are excellent when skiing, backpacking, and mountaineering. To get the best performance keep it calibrated. Don't expect this to be the best everyday casual watch (although it does look good), but do expect it to be the best outdoor adventure watch.

It is a successful design, I would actually wear it and I am proud to be a mountaineer with itBetter than I expected. Very intuitive user interface, the buttons are lockable by press and hold the light button. The bezel ring is aluminum alloy This probably has been the most asked question on Suunto site or others, when rotating, it is a bit sketchy The bottom bowl is some variation of ABS plastic. You might find the backlit is weak but if you test it under different lighting condition, you will find out it is just what is needed for you to clearly see the information with minimum battery consumption. The default strap is pumpkin orange, as bright as some of the trail markers and it doesn't glow in the dark !
The Battery life in time mode for this is 12 months. I hope this helps.

Is it water proof?
