Here are the problems I am experiencing:
The watch pauses too easily. If you wear it inside any sort of a jacket it will likely pause while in exercise mode. I had read this before I bought it but figured it couldnt be as bad as some people had suggested. It is. This by itself can be solved by wearing it outside of all clothing which is annoying but solvable even though this shouldnt be an issue in the first place. It would be easy to modify the software to put a delay on pausing when the button is pressed (much like the time it takes to stop exercising where it times holding the button).
I have never been able to get the sunset app to work properly. This was a significant reason for the purchase. Whenever I start exercising the sunset app works for 3-5 minutes and then flips to just showing 2 bars (--). If I stop the exercise and restart then it works again but never for more than a few minutes. I have searched the web and have not found anyone else with this specific problem, but I have reloaded the app and done a number of things to try to correct this.
Today while hiking the watch suddenly went from showing about 6 miles hiked to 146 miles and the average speed suddenly jumped from about 3 mph to over 60 mph. Obviously the watch got a bad fix and the software did nothing to throw it out. The only way to get rid of the bad fix is to stop exercising and restart. I have been using various GPS's for years including tons of Garmin GPS's, Android GPS's and other brands. The only other time I had this happen was on a very old GPS when it started to fail.Read more ›
The only thing I have not yet been able to make the watch tell me is when bad weather is coming...I believe it's an app I have to install...yet if anyone knows how, I am all ears.
If there are any doubts: I love and highly recommend this watch.
I do have some moisture inside the sapphire display, yet I will not take a star off for that because my Suunto Ambit I go where no man has gone before :-)

Awesome timepiece. What's not to like? I've used it many times with regard to longitude and latitude as well as elevation. Again, it's great.Published 7 months ago by Greg Torino
It's great until the band breaks...and the band will break. The band is one with the whole watch and very expensive to replace.Published 9 months ago by Airborne
