Top cless product.

This is stunningly good. I agonised over buying it for ages as it is not cheap but I needed replace an older GPS/heart monitor urgently. Since receiving it I have used it for training over thirty times mixing running and cycling. It pairs effortlessly with my Garmin bike pod and acquires the satellite link within moments. It generates more data than you could ever need – distance, speed, cadence, VO2max estimate to name a few. The ability to download apps for the watch or build your own according to need also sets this apart. I was sceptical of this at first but now use a heart rate alarm and ghost runner which add structure to my training. I have not tested this for swimming yet but I have reason to believe that its performance will be any less excellent that it’s other sport modes. Particularly noteworthy is the comfort of the heart rate belt. I had an angry red welt on my chest for a number of years from other company’s monitors that is now fading because the Suunto offering is far more comfortable and softer. The build quality is awesome proving you get what you pay for. This is a five star product. One downside is that there is no wireless sync with your PC as there is on the Garmin equivalents but this one thing does not detract. The longer I own it the more I like it.
If you are into endurance sports – treat yourself. You will not be sorry.
