I honestly think Suunto makes nice products, this just isn't one of them.
Amazon Customer
I wish the display was easier to read, there isn't much contrast and back lighting won't do much good if running in the evening.

The Suunto M5 is very comfortable on the wrist and the strap is also comfortable around the chest.

I ordered the black model M5 and was very pleased with the watch except that I found the negative display ( white numbers on black background ) to be very difficult to see at dusk or in any low light conditions. It is not nearly as bright as the product photos show except at high noon sun. If you exercise mostly during full sun, it's very readable, in fact probably less glare than the white face. Consider your exercise venue before you order. Could be my eyes, but after searching other forums on negative faces, I'm not alone. I wound up exchanging the black face for 2 white face women's M5s. I was concerned about the women's band on my wrist, but it still fit with a hole or 2 to spare. Trinow fitness was very helpful and I got them next day. The watch bodies are the same, so if I really decide I want the man's band, I'll order one, but don't see the need right now.

If you're looking for a training aid to get you on track, this is it. I ordered the foot pod and bike pod and they both connected flawlessly and are pretty accurate when checked on a known distance. The chest strap is the most comfortable I have tried and it also links up quickly. We've been using them for about 3 weeks and so far I'm still very satisfied. We were hit or miss with our exercise routine, but the M5 takes the guesswork out and keeps you on track. You really need to maintain your heart rate at a training level for the correct amount of time to get a full workout, and the M5 has helped us do that. A big plus is all the devices use a user-replacable, common watch battery. Remember that Suunto is currenlty offering a free Movestick interface with the M5 & M4, so if you buy, log on to their site and print out the rebate form. Waiting on delivery of ours as of today 8/16/10.

I'll start my review by saying I've never owned any other heart rate monitor...that being said...

I bought the monitor because I started a workout program to lose weight. I wanted to monitor my heart rate and improve my performance over time. I've owned it and worn it almost daily for the past two months. It's been with me walking to work, at the gym, cycling, skiing, etc.

Here's why I have mixed feelings. My biggest complaint is at times, it's tough to get a good heart rate reading. I've tried applying water to the pads, lotion to the pads, gelly to the pads, and I've even followed the picture in the instruction pamphlet by putting the pads under running water before putting the chest belt on. When first starting out, trying to get an accurate and consistent heart rate can be a terrible experience. You end up loosening the belt, tightening the belt, moving the sensor up, moving the sensor down, etc. in order to get it to read on the watch. It's not like you can start your workout when you want to - if you want to use the monitor, you have to get the thing to pick up your heart rate accurately and consistently which leads to delays - often 5 - 10 minutes of shuffling around to get things to work.

Sometimes the monitor is inconsistent in readings. I've had instances where the monitor will say my heart rate is 128 when I can manually feel it's actually 64 (and I'm at rest). The dual pickups double up sometimes. At other times, when bending over, doing situps, weight lifting, etc., the sensors will stop picking up your heart rate and it appears, a calculation is done internally to guesstimate how many calories you've burned. It can be very frustrating.

The small complaints include the "hard to see in the dark" points others have made.

First, do not get the black face. It's completely illegible except in direct bright overhead light. Even the white faced version is hard to read without direct lighting.

Second, if you've been wowed by Suunto's high tech EPOC, Training Effect, yada yada yada, don't get excited to buy this watch because the M5 doesn't take advantage of any of those high-tech features. The M5 is really a very basic heart rate monitor with some additional features which you may not even use.

Of the additional features, I'm thinking about these:

1. Has PC connectivity with the additional Movestick, which adds $40-$70 to your overall price. Also, the web site really is just so so. Not that Polar offers much better.
2. Has POD connectivity. The most useful one might be the GPS pod, but those don't really do much more than track your speed. Your smart phone will do better.
3. Has built in reminders about when to train, when to rest, etc.

One thing I found particularly disappointing with the Suunto is that it's fitness test is the Rockport walking test. You walk a mile as fast as you can, measure the results. Despite all of the technology Suunto has at it's disposal, and for close to $200, the M5 does not have anything more convenient than this. So, about every two weeks you should retest in order to ensure that the M5 program is setting the right intensities for you, which in winter without access to a treadmill could be difficult.

Lastly, to properly use this watch you will absolutely have to download the manual from their web site. The little folded paper manual is sometimes just wrong, and the rest you can figure out for yourself.
