      Comments about SUUNTO Vector Watch:

      I am in the Army and I use the features of this watch quite often. So far I have taken it swimming, hiking and out an airplane and it hasn't skipped a beat. It is a bit big but it's very light and it's no bigger than I'd expect with all the features it has inside. Great watch

      Comments about SUUNTO Vector Watch:

      I have owned this watch for approximatly 9 months and so far have loved it. The only problems i have had is the factory battery dying very quickly in bad timing, and for some reason recently i cant seem to get the compass to calibrate properly and the only directions it reads in east or southeast....otherwise its totally bomber!

        Comments about SUUNTO Vector Watch:

        I have owned this watch for over ten years and just recently had it sent back to Suunto for a repair. It needed a new band and battery its second ever. When the watch was returned to me I was blown away. Suunto basically refurbished the watch so well I thought it was brand new. [...] Good times.

        Comments about SUUNTO Vector Watch:

        I never leave home without this piece of gear. I have had it for 10 years and it has been through a lot of abuse. It continues to perform at a high level. Make sure you calibrate the compass and the elevation at known altitudes for increased accuracy and you have to change the battery annually. The log feature is useful and fun to use. I plot known altitudes along the trail map that I am using to get an idea of location based on the readings. Very nice to have in the fog while traversing the Presidential range in the White Mountains of NH.

          Comments about SUUNTO Vector Watch:

          I have used this watch everyday for the past six years. I have used this primarily as a C.O. in jail and now as a Police Officer. This watch has held up after numerous fights, I have only replaced the band once, battery twice. I used it traveling Europe specifically through the Austrian Alps and the altimeter was on point. It is great watch from a great company, my Marine Corps roommate has been blown up twice (EOD Tech) and Suunto keeps fixing or replacing his Vector. Well worth the money.

              The barometer weather forecast function works best if you remain pretty much in the same area. When we travel 100 miles of so the different barometer for that area throws off the forecast feature. If you remain in the same general area it is extremely accurate. I didn't test the altimeter yet but all the other features are extremely accurate.

              [...] This watch is huge! too big and was looking too repulsive on wrist. I did not like the design, the color (lighter blue than I expected)and the unnecessary big numbers on the screen.Any way, it was a frustrating experience for me.

                I have purchased this watch for use on a trip out to the southwest next summer. I have been trying it out on the Long Trail in VT. I found it fairly easy to understand and set-up. I enjoy the altimeter function and have been checking it against topos and my GPS. So far so good.
