5.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose, 13 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Suunto Core Outdoor Sports Instrument (Sports)
I have been looking at purchasing one of these for a while now and have in the past made do with my trusty G-Shock. I finally took the plunge after researching the product on numerous wed sites and reviews from friends and colleagues. Now I have got it I won't go back.

I am currently serving in Afghanistan and I have found it a necessary bit of kit to have with me before going out on the ground. I have seen plenty of reviews questioning the display and I can say that even in the bright sunlight I have had no problems reading the time, the display is big and clear and can be read at a glance. The compass has come in handy on a number of occasions although I do double and triple check this using a GPS and standard compass but it has never given me a false reading. The sunset / rise alarm has been useful when out on the ground and lets me know when to either stop or get going. The altimeter application hasn't really had much use but the couple of times I have been up in the mountains it has given a similar reading to the GPS so the figures are accurate. The thermometer doesn't really get used apart from to tell me that it is ridiculously hot during the day and cold at night something I am all to aware of already. The watch is comfortable to wear and doest rub on the skin and is easily cleaned.

All round a great watch with many uses on the job and I am sure I will have use for it when I return to the UK. I would recommend this watch to both military and civilian personal.
