A watch for a purpose - possibly not yours.
on 9 July 2013
This is a large and complicated watch - sufficiently complicated that the interface is ungainly and the (not supplied but you can download it) instruction manual runs to 380 pages, and Suunto even provide a range of video tutorials. This is significantly more help, for example, than my high-end AV amplifier was provided with. With a traditional multi-button interface rather than the touch-technology employed on more expensive multi-function watches such as the Tissot T-Touch, working your way around the functions is, indeed, a bit of a learning curve. Especially as the functionality of the buttons depends on both the current context and how long you hold them down for. I'm not quite there yet.
The watch is bulky but relatively light - PVD coated alloy and quality plastic rather than steel or titanium. The reversed LCD display is clear, except for the tiny barometric trend indicator which I find difficult to read both in bright sun and under fluorescent light.
If you need the altimeter and compass functions - I would certainly recommend this. If you don't, you might want to look at some of the smaller Sunnto watches.
