The shipment of this item was not as stated when I purchased it. However, Amazon and Dexclusive certainly made things right, by refunding the shipping and sending it next day delivery. I appreciated the prompt attention to the problem, and the pleasing resolution.

This watch is by far the best Suunto I have owned. Those that I have are; X Lander, Core and Vector. I'm a fan of Suunto. I feel they are ahead of their time in design and comfort, as well as capabilities. Their watches are ergonomic, and functionable.
I bought the Ambit 1st Gen earlier this year. It was not comfortable...either too loose or too tight for this wrist. I returned it to the department store, as it wasn't working out. If a watch isn't comfortable, what good is it?

Overall, I am happy with the much improved band and fit of this 2nd generation. The band is a big reason the comfort is very much improved. EXTREMELY capable watch, and identical to the 1st, but this one has sapphire crystal, and is much better fitting, as I mentioned.

Great watch. You will not be dissappointed if you buy one.

This was purchased as a replacement for my Garmin Forerunner 10. Although I purchased this as a sports watch for running, it's a bonus that this can can be worn as a regular watch since the battery lasts over 1 week in watch mode. One reason for the extended battery life is that when you're not wearing it, the watch goes into stand-by mode with a blank display. It's been about 3 full days since the last charge. During that time I wore it in GPS mode for a 5-mile run and a 10-mile bike ride yet the battery is still at 85%. Especially since I seldom have my reading glasses handy, I love the large digital display vs. the tiny display on the fitness bands or even many other watches. No big deal, but I also like that with the press of a button, I can reverse the display from dark on light to light on dark. With many multi-function digital watches, it's annoying when you check the time and the display has switched to another mode. With this watch, you can lock/unlock the buttons with a 2 second press of a button.

As a sports watch, what I like most about it are the following features:

• With its GPS capability, it’s much more accurate than any fitness band could ever hope to be based on your cadence or even a shoe pod.
• You can optionally buy a heart rate monitor (some models are bundled with one) or various pods.
• You can define up to 10 activities. For each activity, you have a separate set of screens providing activity-specific data. You can associate up to 10 screens of data for each activity and each screen is fully customizable. So I have it configured to my liking for running, hiking and biking with things like current time, elapsed time, distance, speed, elevation and altimeter graph.
• It has a built-in compass.
• This watch has a cool Track Logging and Find Back features that could come in handy on hikes if you get lost.
• With the watch, you get free syncing to both a smartphone app and Web site. You can also add hundreds of free apps.

No big deal, but I wish the display was in color. I also wish it would automatically sync via Bluetooth to the phone app.

It wasn't clear that the watch didn't include the HR monitor - I thought it did. I couldn't find that information in the specs.

Suunto makes very light, numerous functions, comfortable, ABC watches. This does all that and much more. I have the Altimax and the Vector, along with this amazing watch. The price was good and the speed of delivery and quality was quick and the watch nicely packaged. It is made in Finland and a good investment.

The altitude is not so precise because it's only calculated with the GPS, but for me it is not so important, so I decided to go for this one instead of the one with the barometer

i didn't know it was rechargeable and so you have to keep this charged. its not often though (once a week) but if you keep using its functions you will consume the battery faster. If it gets discharged you're way of resetting the time is by hooking up to a computer with its cable that came with it. so if you're using this on a trip be sure to bring the cable.
