All the data you need in the outdoors is just a glance away with the Suunto Vector Wristop Computer. Get all the functionality of an altimeter, barometer, and compass in a stylish design that won the European Outdoor Award Product of the Year for 1999/2000.

The Vector looks like a high-end wristwatch, with an ABS plastic body and elastic wristband. The body is black, with a ring of yellow around the dial and an oversized backlit LCD screen. The Vector is made tough, built to be waterproof even submerged up to 100 feet.

The watch displays day, time, and date with three programmable alarms plus a stopwatch and countdown timer. But the Vector really stands out in its combination of altimeter, barometer, and compass functions. The altimeter allows you to view the current altitude with a range up to 29,500 feet and a resolution of 10 feet. Also view your ascent/descent rate in feet per minute. (All measurements are also available in metric units.)

The barometer allows you to measure the temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit, absolute pressure, and a difference measurement to follow changes in barometric pressure and temperature. The automatic four-day memory keeps track of atmospheric pressure information. Another feature is the adjustable sea-level pressure function.

The Vector's compass shows directional bearing in degrees and cardinal or half- cardinal point. There is a north-south arrow and a bearing tracking function that displays locked bearing, actual bearing, and the difference between these declination adjustments. The compass's bubble level indicates a level position to ensure a reading accuracy to within 2 to 3 degrees.

The Vector comes with a user-replaceable battery, which lasts up to 18 months, and a low-battery indicator. The Vector is covered by a one-year warranty.

I swear... I didn't push any buttons underwater. If you're going to swim with this watch then don't buy it. It was understood this watch was never meant for SCUBA or serious swimming, but even a few dips in the pool proved this watch is {garbage}. Yes, the compass is handy.

this watch does what the other reviewers say. BUT, don't get it wet. i had mine replaced for $75 after an online complaint to the company. the watch fell into 5 feet of water and was trashed by the water leak. i like the compass, barometer the best. the trend line is helpful on the weather forcasting. the temperature is only good if you take the watch off and leave it on the ground.
besides the compass, it functions the best if you leave it in one place and refer to it daily at your tent...not all that convenient, eh?

I set my Suunto Vector to Atomic time and it is accurate to the second. After a year it swayed 1/2 second off. Now that's keeping time. Great feel, great watch, great tools. Its doesn't set declination properly but I haven't found a wrist watch that does. Well, not in this price range. The black light effect is great at night too. I bought the watch for accuracy and it hasn't let me down.

I owned my Vector for a year-and-a-half then one day it developed condensation under the faceplate. I removed the battery to see if moisture had collected there too but it was dry. However, the rubber O ring gasket would not fit back around the battery cover as it once did. I then sent the watch to Suunto for warranty repair. Three weeks later I'm notified the watch was repaired and on its way back. Upon opening the box I'm shocked because its not my watch but a brand spanking new Vector!! Now that's service Suunto, you rock!

I just used this watch for a recent backpacking trip and it was great. At nights I would hang it in the tent to get the over night temp and during the day the altimeter helped our group determine our location and progress. Recalibrating the watch was easy based on our campsite location on the topo map. Finally, the barometer was a good in indicator of the weather that we would be encountering.

This watch is also a cool conversation piece when it comes to skiing. You can set it to do total number of vertical feet skied and when you get on the chair you can tell your partner the rate of decent on the last run. Very cool watch!!!

I bought this to replace my old watch (same make and model) which after about 30 years (and many batteries as well as a few wristbands) finally was beyond salvaging -- the buttons were no longer working right. But I loved the features (and ease of viewing) so much that I just got another one. It's expensive, but if it lasts another 30 years (and if live to see that, being already a senior) it's well worth it.
You should expect, however, that the setup is a little more involved than the one I purchased decades ago -- this seems to be set by default for a European market, so I had to change some of the settings (units, etc.). But the instruction book was completely informative and I had no trouble.

I owned a Vector about ten years ago, and at some point, it was lost. I've wanted the same watch since. Recently, I had the opportunity to replace it. I like the ease of use of the watch -- although, to be sure, for some functions, there's a bit of a learning curve. It isn't waterproof, but with prudent protection, it is sufficiently water resistant for most conditions likely to be encountered.
