I purchased the All Black Core and it's closest competitor, the Casio PRW 3000, at the same time for a back-to-back test. Both were nearly identical in price. Both black plastic/resin with negative displays (white numerals on black background). Allow me to summarize my take on the Suunto Core, using the Casio as a reference point:
The Core's alti, baro, compass features work well and seem very accurate as far as watches go. However, I don't find it to be significantly more accurate than the newest Casio ABC sensor package.
Overall screen readability for me was pretty good, but not great, on the Suunto--slightly better than that of the Casio (both models I tested were negative displays).
I was very disappointed with the backlight on the Suunto Core. The brightness was disappointing and it lacks an auto-on feature (or at least I couldn't find it in the menus or manual). For those unfamiliar, the backlight on the Casio PRW 3000 can be set to automatically turn on for a few seconds when you raise your wrist up to look at the watch. This sounds pretty trivial but I find it to be an amazingly useful feature. What's better, is that the Casio is solar and it uses this to be smart with the auto-on feature. If the solar panel senses that there's enough ambient light to charge the watch, then it figures you don't need the backlight to automatically turn on to read the time. Genius!
Now that I've mentioned solar...the Suunto is battery powered compared to the solar-powered Casio. That, to me, is enough to warrant choosing the Casio over the Suunto. Yes, this might not seem like a huge deal, but if you're wanting a tool that you can rely on, why wouldn't you have solar? I suppose you could preemptively change the battery in the Suunto every once in awhile so you know it'll always be good to go. And yes, the Suunto does allow you to change the battery yourself, using a coin to open the battery compartment, instead of taking it to a jewelry counter. However, every time you open and close the back you're running the risk that it doesn't get sealed up quite right and the water resistance will be compromised. So, imagine this: you put your Suunto Core and your Casio PRW 3000 in a desk drawer and leave them for awhile. Then one Friday night: "Big camping trip tomorrow morning! I'll wear my Suunto Core!", only to find that its battery is dead and your local shop is closed. Then you pick up the Casio and lo and behold, it knew you put it in a drawer because the solar panel detected complete darkness for a long period of time. So it went into power-saving mode to preserve battery life. With one button push it comes back to life and is ready to go. Oh, and even if it had run all the way down you could just wear it outside for a few minutes and it would be juiced back up.
So, just to summarize: the Core looks cool, until you put it on and realize it's the size of a dinner plate (compared to the tea cup saucer-sized Casio). In isolation as a watch and an outdoor tool, the Suunto does a fine job. However, when compared to its best competitor it just doesn't stack up.
