Product Description

Product Description

Used by all Professionals with Altimeter, Barometer and Compass together with Altitude difference measurement, Altitude log and Vertical Speed facilty

Product Description

After a decade of travels, adventures and courageous expeditions, the Suunto Vector is still the most legendary of all the Suunto outdoor devices. With technology and durability that can take on the harshest of environments, the unique heritage of Suunto Vector has withstood the test of time.Features:- Altimeter with vertical speed measurement and altitude alarm- Barometer with pressure difference measurement- Compass with leveling bubble for more accurate reading- Multiple watch functions- Light plastic housing in a selection of colors- User replaceable batteryAltimeter The altimeter features a range up to 9,000 m / 29,500 ft, and an altitude difference measurement function for following the vertical progress between different stages of a climb. It has an automatic 24-hour memory that stores the altitude and ascent/descent rate for every hour and also features an adjustable altitude alarm and a number of different memory functions. With the unique logbook function, you can also record your total and cumulative vertical ascents and descents, as well as the number of runs skied.Barometer Suunto Vector displays the current barometric pressure and temperature, enabling you to forecast weather changes. It also automatically records barometric data for the past four days. When the reference altitude is set correctly, the instrument also shows the present sea level pressure, making it easier for you to read and understand the barometric pressure at high altitudes. Compass The digital compass of Suunto Vector guides you with cardinal or half-cardinal points and the north-south arrow. The compass can also be set to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a desired direction in unknown terrain. Time In addition to the outdoor-related functions, Suunto Vector also displays current time, in either 12 or 24-hour forma

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful bit of kit 14 Jan 2010
By Robin
I primarily bought the Vector as a rugged watch for when I'm trekking, which could also be used as a backup compass. I soon found that the altimeter proved to be an excellent navigation aid when combined with the ability to take bearings quite easily with the watch in compass mode. The barometer is good too as it indicates change in air pressure so you get an early indication of changes in the weather although of course if you are going up/down mountains, the usefulness of this becomes limited.

It's weathered well (I've had it over 10 years now), although there is a large scratch on the glass, picked up while walking in the Pyrennees. This hasn't affected performance at all though.

My only negative comment is that although you are advised in the manual to recalibrate the compass before every trip, the process can be a bit time consuming so it doesn't get done as often as perhaps it should. This did on one occasion cause some confusion since I used the Vector to make a quick check on the direction I was taking and it turned out to be wildly off. Fortunately I was aware of the general direction I needed to go so got out my 'real' compass to check, which is how I found that the calibration had gone completely. As I say, recalibration can be a pain so it's not something you feel like doing at the beginning of every day.

I also tend to reset the altimeter when I get to a known height, usually a peak, since changes in air pressure due to the weather rather than altitude can make the readings slightly inaccurate over a period of a few hours. Resetting the height is a job of a couple of seconds so this isn't an onerous task.

When it comes to battery changing, it is significantly cheaper to buy replacements from your local Boots or similar, however the Suunto replacement pack does come with a new seal, so the choice depends on how much you expect the device to be exposed to water.

Colour Name:Black
The watch meets the expectations in terms of performance. However, the functions of the various buttons to move through modes and sub-modes are not really user-friendly and immediate to learn. For example, the night illumination is obtained by pressing a button for a few seconds continuously: this may not be easy (typically while practicing a sport or on board a moving vehicle) and, if pressing is interrupted too early, the watch display changes (in the dark).
Moreover, the dark face with light digits is not easily readable in day lights.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good, I'm buying another. 15 Jan 2009
I bought my first Vector in 2001 and it has been one of the toughest watches I've ever owned ( I really do give them some stick too ) I've been through 2 straps and 4 batteries, these are surprisingly easy to change.
It's been up mountains and down ditches, it's travelled by land, sea & air and I like it so much that I'm going to buy another as mine works perfectly but is now as rough as a builders thumb.
You might get brownie points with the SAS for surviving everything that the watch has been through but I think it looks a bit too scruffy now, it's a yellow one so it really shows just how hard a life it's had, retirement beckons...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent features 13 Sep 2011
By ehb
This is a great watch. Why?

- Compass feature is brilliant. Having a compass on your wrist so you don't need to mess about finding it in your bag or jacket pocket is a great idea. The best thing though is that it can be recalibrated so if it gets affected by magnets in the area eg mobile phone (I have lost countless compasses through accidentally having them to close to my phone) you can simply reset it and it self-corrects.

- Altimeter is easy to use and very useful. Of course it will get affected by weather changes unlike a GPS but you can reset everytime you know your altitude.

- Barometer very useful - it has a time lapse feature so you can see recent trends in the pressure and therefore you know if the weather is deteriorating or improving.

-Watch does what it says on the tin....

4.0 out of 5 stars Suunto Vector Watch - Black 20 May 2011
Colour Name:black (light face)
This is my first Suunto and overall I am very impressed with it. Looks good, comfortable to wear, easy to read and a useful range of functions. I've used a Casio Pro-Trek for a few years which has performed admirably but wanted something with an electronic compass as a back up for my Silva. The only slight niggle I have with all these type of watches is that you have to remove it from your wrist for 10-15 minutes before you get an accurate read from the temp/baro function, not just Suunto, they're all the same. Very pleased, a lot of watch for the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 8 Mar 2011
Colour Name:Black
This Suunto Vector is a cracking piece of kit. All functions work to a tee and are so accurate I can not find fault with it.
I if you are in doubt about purchasing the product, then you should be in no doubt. Robust build quality and all displays are clear and easy to read.
Amazon can not be faulted. Delivery to Afghanistan (BFPO) in 7 days and refunded the VAT - Bonus!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Needs Bear Grylls!?? 11 Dec 2012
Colour Name:black (light face)|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my Dad a year or so ago and he still acts like a kid when showing people all of the amazing & crazy things it can do! From your elevation, direction & temperature.

It looks really smart for casual or evening wear and its a must for military buffs also as this is popular within the SF community.

I myself recently bought the Suunto Core All Black that itself is also a cracking piece of kit.
The company are great for returns, warranty and all questions

Its a no-brainer really... what are you waiting for....??
