I love this thing. I have had it for about 4 years and it has held up great. I have the titanium one and it is super light. The altimeter works great but does have to be set once in awhile, same with the compass. This is an awesome watch and i would recommend it to anyone. Great on the trail or in the office and people compliment it all the time.
A great watch that has just kept ticking for 3+ years.IIf only I could say the same about the straps, original Titanium lasted 7 months.Switched to neoprene cheaper - and lasted a year.I don't wrastle grizzlies on the side or mistreat my gear...Suunto make a great watch but need some R&D on the straps..Recommendation - buy a couple of neoprene straps when you buy the watch :)
Exactly what I was looking for. I havn't had any problems with the band, I don't forsee any either. I got the titanium one and highly recommend it. There is some learning involved. A nice little manual is included. I like the size-I'm a girl and it is not enormous on my small wrist.
This watch is sitck nasty!! I love it I just wish I was smarter than the watch. The altimiter is amazing makes land nav easier. The barometer is great for the camp site. Its super light and looks great.
Great product, durable and does what it's supposed to. Also looks good so not just for the hills. As others have said a few very minor issues: you need to fiddle to switch from barometer to altimeter, the temp function only useful with the watch off. Luckily they come with a mini-manual. I've had mine for years now(5-6?) with no problems. The battery compartment is brilliant- the watch is still w/p without sending in after battery replacement.
I have had this watch for just under 4 years. During which I have worn it pretty much every single day, and on numerous adventures. I have the titanium model, and it is pretty much indestructible. All I have managed to do is put a very small scratch onto the face of the watch. My only complaint is that without memorizing the manual it can be fairly difficult to use all of the features. The compass is invaluable, it is very easy to calibrate and works like a charm. This is the watch to have.
Got this in the stainless steel. Accurate and dependable. So stylish and sporty that I wear it as my everyday watch. The alarm is rather quiet like others have commented on before. But, since I don't use the function, it's not much of a problem for me. The sizing tape is not very accurate it measures your wrist in a more circular pattern as opposed to an ovoid pattern which is closer to the shape of your wrist. I used the tape and ended up cutting too much off the band and had to get another band! Cut the band on the looser side and adjust the pin to the second hole to make the band tighter before you lop off more just to be on the safe side.
Nice watch, lots of fetures. I bought this watch on sale because I collect watches, but I now wear this every dat. I even wear it as an altimeter while skydiving. But I am sure moosejaw would not recommend it. I say Too Bad
"Like the top line..AWESOME GEAR!!! I'm shouting!"
Awesome gear!! This watch is going to be used at somewhere between 70 and 280 kilometres per hour...in freefall.....skydiving. It needs to be good. I trust it to perform because at my drop zone there must be about 20 skydivers I've already met that use Suunto altimeter watches instead of the normal wrist mount analogue altimeter. They swear by them. So far mine's only seen 4 jumps, but it's going to see lots more. I love the way it looks, and I love the way it tells you really neat stuff about the world. I mean, in freefall I can switch it to compass mode to see which way my arse is pointing, then quickly move to time mode to see if it's close to the drop zone bar opening time ye
I got this watch 2 ago and I have put it through some serious hiking and boarding. Its still ticking. Of course the compass, barometer, and altimeter are great features. I really like the stee/metal appearence.
"ps it is all true and youe should buy it!!!!"
this is the best watch in the world great for climbing Mt. Everest. One time when I was climbing Mt. Everest I was almost to the top when my other watch shattered in to a million pieces so I had to turn around and go home, but this watch didn't when i went up for my second time.
