4.0 out of 5 stars Love it 6 Aug 2013

Colour Name:Deep Black|Verified Purchase
The only issue I have - and it is by no means a show stopper- is that the display is not very bright.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adjusting display contrast 19 Dec 2013
Colour Name:Deep Black
I bought this watch recently - it's a great tool, very stylish, packed full of the (useful) features I needed it for.

However, there is one area which lets down the watch - the display readability is something of an issue ... I'm specifically referring to the 'reverse black' display, where the (lighter-colour) digits are displayed against a deep-black background.

I agree with another reviewer in that the publicity photos of the watch are edited so that the diaplay looks crisp and very readable. In reality, even in the best of lighting, the display is rather less easy to read (and even the backlight doesn't help much in dim lighting conditions).

It should be (I would think) an easy option for the manufacturer to provide a 'reverse-out' display mode, where you can switch between light-coloured digits against a black backgound and black digits against a light background.

Luckily, there is an easy 'work-around' which is not, surpringly, advised in the manufacturer's manual !

Essentially, you can adjust the contrast between the lighter digits and the blakc background, to greatly increase readability.

Have a look on You Tube ... [...] .... it worked for me !

Good luck and enjoy a great watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent watch 26 Nov 2012
By Sabre33 - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Deep Black|Verified Purchase
I have been using this Suunto while stationed in Afghanistan. It is functional, provides me with need information and has been very resilient under harsh conditions. It has withstood extreme heat and has been functioning well in the cold. I highly recommend this watch to anyone that does any activities outdoors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Careful with scratches! 6 Dec 2013
By DrM47145 - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Deep Black|Verified Purchase
I've had this watch for 2 weeks now, so I cannot speak for durability yet.

I like it a lot. It feels great, it's light, elegant, not too big, easy to use and it certainly does what it's supposed to. What you would expect from Suunto.

But I'm not going to talk about why you may want to buy it because if you are reading reviews on this watch is because you already want to buy it; so I will rather focus on what made me hesitate:

- Aluminium: may not be the best material for a watch. It is light, it has a nice finish, but it is a malleable metal, and it will certainly scratch quite easily. So far, I have not had any scratch, but I am being consciously careful. Plastic could be more durable, but it wont be that good looking.

- Display contrast is not great. The stock images you see are certainly edited and manipulated. It reads decently well, but depending on the angle it can become challenging. With poor light conditions, it definitively becomes challenging.

- Rubber band is good, but bulky. I owned a Suunto X-Lander, and its band was as beautiful as it was terrible. I owned both the leather band and a rubberized one. None survived decently for more than a year and a half. After that, I hed to do superglue surgery to them or just get a new one. This one seems to be more silicone than rubber. It is soft to the touch, very flexible and overall seems like it will be more durable than those of the X-Lander. My only criticism is that since it is a somehow bulky watch, I take it away every night before going to sleep, and taking it off could be easier than what it is. But I have to say that even if I'd knew this before hand, that would not have prevented me from buying this watch. I still think it is worth.

- Price. That is a big criticism I have for Suunto. You can get the exact same machine for $250 (or less) on a plastic case. Do the really need to charge you $150 more for an aluminium case? I find it abusive marketing.

Overall, if anything, I would recommend any potential buyer to just be careful with scratches if you want to keep your Core Alu Deep Black in pristine conditions. If you don't mind the girly looks of the white version, I am pretty sure it will withstand scratches much more elegantly than the black one. For the very same reasons the white iPhone 5/5s tolerates them better. Under the black finish you will find shiny aluminium. Contrast will be less significant if you get the white version, which is also less expensive and for no good reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great watch - all I expected 6 Feb 2014
By Papa - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Deep Black|Verified Purchase
A great, versatile watch you can wear up on the trail or around town. The watch itself is comfortable to wear and hardly feels like you have it on. The functions etc. are pretty easy to figure out, and after 15 min. of playing around with the settings I had everything figured out.

Would recommend for anyone looking for a solid hiking / all-around sports watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars good watch 24 Mar 2014
By Dejan Bukvic - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name:Deep Black|Verified Purchase
It looks great, I dont have an issue. The dark screen is sometimes hard to see but it looks great. I do have a Pathfinder and I wear that to work. This one I did hit hard againts a wall and a small white dot is on the body. If you want to be more rugged maybe look at the regular core.
