Got the lime green for my wife and I have the black one. Great entry level heart rate monitor and fashionable watch. Well made and durable. Comfortable chest strap. Good value for the price.

I absolutely love this watch! I did a lot of looking around and research online and in person and this was by far the best outdoor/military style watch for the price. I looked at the MTM line but the Air Stryke was my choice and simply could not justify the price tag. There were others like Citizen, high end G-SHOCKS, etc but this fit the best, had the options I was looking for and looked killer, in my opinion of course as I wanted an all black watch. This watch is definitely worth a look if you are considering a solid outdoor watch.

I am a fireman and I get to buy myself one expensive gift a year, all the guys just love my watch. I had a Casio path finder for 9 years and never realized how uncomfortable it was now that I have the Suunto. I can wear the Suunto all shift and sleep with it on with ease. Extremely comfortable, I would recommend this watch to anyone!

I bought my husband this watch, almost two years ago. Being in the military, the watch face and band have to be certain colors, and this worked perfect. We have already replaced the band once. We were thinking that the specific wear of doing push ups with the watch on, had caused the band to break. Also read another review with the same thought, the constant bending of the wrist caused it to weaken over time. You have to buy the Suunto band, can't just go to watch repair and get any they have. They're also pretty expensive, considering the cost of the watch....60 just for the band is a lot. He really wanted a watch that showed altitude, and all that fun stuff. Most other watches had huge faces, and didn't look comfortable. This one does all the cool stuff, without looking like he's wearing a plate.

Just got my Vector watch. No sooner did I set the time and date when it started to malfunction. As I scrolled through the modes to compass, the screen went blank and the watch jumped to the time mode, but reset the time to 6:00 p.m. and reset the date to Sat 1/1/2000. I called customer service to find out if maybe I had done something incorrect, but after speaking to the representative, I was told that the watch "shouldn't do that" and that I should try to replace the battery...on a watch I literally received 10 minutes earlier! Not good. Not good at all! The watch is going back.

Great watch but very difficult to see the face on the all black version. Also, I had to get to the Suunto website for how to videos as limited information in box.

I did not buy this watch, thankfully. Researching the item, I found a couple of interesting paradoxes. First, the a priori statement: this is an extreme conditions watch. Ok, so let us look at some empirical scenarios (which, ironically, are not so extreme). I called the manufacturer and asked, if I am backpacking and decide to take a dip in the river, this wrist computer is ok, right? Nope. According to them, I absolutely have to take this thing off as it is not designed for swimming. Although it is water resistant to 100 feet, you cannot swim with it on because it will leak. In a pool, according to one review. It is water resistant to 100 feet. 100 feet of what? Often, structural and mechanical elements exposed to pressure have some time increment associated as well, EG 100' for 10 minutes. Nope, none of that. Fluff spec, period. I was told it was for rain exposure. 100' of rain. Secondly, the altimeter. Some guy reviewed this elsewhere and said he calibrated it and checked against actual altitude markers and it was off by a couple hundred feet. Another guy said his temperature gauge read the same temp all the time - body temp. This watch is what the old timers call hooey. Charlatan. Joke. Here is what the guys who wrote the original boy scout manual used: the sun and the stars. Go ahead, buy this watch and look cool like Mark Walberg when he wore it as a a now obvious prop in Shooter. In the end I replaced my cheap Casio with another cheap Casio. The first went into every pool, stream, and lake over the last five years until I broke the strap and smashed the face. Oh, and both are water resistant to 200'.

Great watch. If you read the manual and spend the time to understand the functionality of the watch, you will appreciate how well it is designed. You do have to occasionally re-calibrate the compass altimeter, but that is very simple to do.

Overall very pleased with this watch. Great looking and durable. This is the 2nd Suunto I have owned. Not a 5-star because comfort could be improved. The back of the watch is hard and not contoured, whereas the Suunto M-series watches are more form-fittting. As a result, my wrist bone feels some pressure from the watch at times. Not a deal breaker for me - I wear the watch almost every day. And it may just be my wrist. I purchased the green bezel watch with the lighter watch face background. Very easy to read and functions well. Pleased with purchase.

I was pretty happy with my watch until a month ago when the lower left button that changes the view screens stopped responding when pressed. I have used the watch pretty lightly considering its purpose as a specialized outdoors watch. I called Suunto to send it in under their two year warranty and they directed me to their website. Apparently you cannot send the watch through Fedex originating from your house, or receive delivery, without being charged each way. I find this to be pretty poor after-purchase service considering the price of the watch. I would not be able to recommend this watch due to Suunto's customer service.

This watch has superb design, but that is about it! Here are the issues I found with it: 1) the screen has very low contrast, i.e. readability 2) you can read the screen ONLY if right in front of your face, otherwise is unreadable. 3) backlight is too faint, only useful in the dark, dark. 4) the menu navigation is inconvenient. there are two functions, altimeter and barometer, that are unnecessarily together AND additional settings must be changed to select one or the other instead of using the MODE button

Great sports watch. As with all heart rate monitors, keeping contract with real time heart rate measurements gets a little tricky after 45+ minutes of exercise (i.e. sweat), but the display is great, and easy to use. The exercise summary could be better by allowing you to see a daily total though - exercise more than once in a day and you can only review the last event.

This is a great watch but even with adjusting the contrast, it is extremely difficult to read. If the display was brighter, I would rate it very high!

I bought this watch for my husband and he really likes it except the loop that you put the end of the band back through. The band will not stay in the loop. He is going to order a different band.

I bought this watch for my son for Father's Day...and he loves it! He called to thank me for it and went on and on about all of the things that it could do. Perfect personal gift for a new dad.

Bought this watch for my husband, as he had been looking for a neat sports watch (something a little different than your average one). He loved it! He's a Clemson Tigers fan, so he really liked the orange. He said it's really easy to use and that all of the features are great for his workouts.

Features are awesome and the look is great. If you need a watch to be water resistant...find another one. This one can't make it thought a shower working. If I didn't like it so much, I would return it.

My wife bought me a Vector for my birthday as I recently was in need of a 'field' watch. I consider myself somewhat of a watch aficionado, and have been impressed so far. Have read complaints about the sensitivity of the face, but Suunto appears to have taken steps to correct with the crystal. Watch looks great, now it is just a matter of calibrating everything and then getting my head around the functionality. Watch looks great.

The watch is exactly as ordered. The service was exceptional and I will certainly order from them again.

I own the Suunto Core All Military Black. So far I have been pretty happy with the altitude, barometer, and compass function. A few things to keep in mind before buying this watch. 1. You need to calibrate the altitude and barometer to get an accurate reading. You can attain this through a topo map and checking the weather report for the area you plan on using the watch. 2. The reverse display is hard to read at certain angles and light. 3. Backlight will blink when used in conjunction with the compass mode to save battery life. The bezel feels kind of cheap, it would have been nice if it was rubber coated. A great improvement to the Vector since it has a crystal face instead of an easily scratchable plastic one. I'm pretty happy with my purchase.

I am now on my third Vector and absolutely love and swear by them. The display is easy to read especially if you have vision issues. Most chrono watches are too small to read for me and Suunto solves the problem. I get about 2 years out of a set of batteries. I am about to buy a new one as the printed char tend to rub off over time and use (the only negative).
