This review is from: Suunto X-Lander Outdoor Sports Instrument (Watch)
When I first saw reversed LCD displays I actually wondered why it had taken so many years to bring out products with reversed displays...
Great watch. Very accurate. Super features. Comfortable. Strap is a bit of a let down - mine is leather - would have been better with some sort of rubberised plasticky thing. Mine is accurate to within 2 seonds per year (had it for 15 months now).
I would not recommend this watch to anyone as the display is pretty much unreadable in most lighting conditions. If driving it is not readable. In bright sunlight it is unreadable. In dull light it is unreadable.
And it is not possible to reverse the display to the more conventional (and much more readable) black on white.
Now I know why the inventors of LCD displays in the 80's went for black on white and not white on black....
