Got the lime green for my wife and I have the black one. Great entry level heart rate monitor and fashionable watch. Well made and durable. Comfortable chest strap. Good value for the price.

I absolutely love this watch! I did a lot of looking around and research online and in person and this was by far the best outdoor/military style watch for the price. I looked at the MTM line but the Air Stryke was my choice and simply could not justify the price tag. There were others like Citizen, high end G-SHOCKS, etc but this fit the best, had the options I was looking for and looked killer, in my opinion of course as I wanted an all black watch. This watch is definitely worth a look if you are considering a solid outdoor watch.

This is a sensational watch. The GPS is accurate and this sapphire model is tough while easy on the eyes. It eats up scrapes and hits from granite walls to freezer doors. Waterproof and bomber. The watch is a great buy.

I was pretty excited to receive this watch because I was going to use it in the mountains hiking in Montana. Well, first of all, it took about two hours to figure everything out about this watch, but that was okay. There were a lot of functions and I wanted to be able to use this for hiking. All seemed well until day 2 (!) when the main button would not function. It was like stuck and I couldn't calibrate the compass nor access any of the other settings of this watch. Had to send it back as defective. I would not recommend this watch to anyone looking for something reliable for the outdoors. Suunto should stick to what they do best which is compasses only. Watches: definitely not their expertise. Totally overpriced for something this unreliable.

Just got my Vector watch. No sooner did I set the time and date when it started to malfunction. As I scrolled through the modes to compass, the screen went blank and the watch jumped to the time mode, but reset the time to 6:00 p.m. and reset the date to Sat 1/1/2000. I called customer service to find out if maybe I had done something incorrect, but after speaking to the representative, I was told that the watch "shouldn't do that" and that I should try to replace the battery...on a watch I literally received 10 minutes earlier! Not good. Not good at all! The watch is going back.

This watch works great for my needs. (wk out classes and cycling) The HR band fits comfortably as well, I usually don't even notice it as it sits right at my sports bra line. It always syncs with all the gym equipment which makes viewing easy. I love that it shows a summary at the end of the workout, with peak HR, average HR and % of time at each HR, as well as total cal's burned, and the ability to go back and look at previous workouts. The color however is NOT Fuchsia, it is RED! Just like in the picture, maybe the person who named it was a tad color blind. ;)

This watch was a gift for my husband. All I can say is that he never takes it off. It was exactly was he was looking for (light weight, heart rate and calories monitor). The only downside would be that it doesn't have an illuminator. Overall, great watch!

This is by far the best watch I've ever utilized in combat. It stood up to it all! Awesome back light that would never give your position away. Thanks Finland!

I did not buy this watch, thankfully. Researching the item, I found a couple of interesting paradoxes. First, the a priori statement: this is an extreme conditions watch. Ok, so let us look at some empirical scenarios (which, ironically, are not so extreme). I called the manufacturer and asked, if I am backpacking and decide to take a dip in the river, this wrist computer is ok, right? Nope. According to them, I absolutely have to take this thing off as it is not designed for swimming. Although it is water resistant to 100 feet, you cannot swim with it on because it will leak. In a pool, according to one review. It is water resistant to 100 feet. 100 feet of what? Often, structural and mechanical elements exposed to pressure have some time increment associated as well, EG 100' for 10 minutes. Nope, none of that. Fluff spec, period. I was told it was for rain exposure. 100' of rain. Secondly, the altimeter. Some guy reviewed this elsewhere and said he calibrated it and checked against actual altitude markers and it was off by a couple hundred feet. Another guy said his temperature gauge read the same temp all the time - body temp. This watch is what the old timers call hooey. Charlatan. Joke. Here is what the guys who wrote the original boy scout manual used: the sun and the stars. Go ahead, buy this watch and look cool like Mark Walberg when he wore it as a a now obvious prop in Shooter. In the end I replaced my cheap Casio with another cheap Casio. The first went into every pool, stream, and lake over the last five years until I broke the strap and smashed the face. Oh, and both are water resistant to 200'.

Overall very pleased with this watch. Great looking and durable. This is the 2nd Suunto I have owned. Not a 5-star because comfort could be improved. The back of the watch is hard and not contoured, whereas the Suunto M-series watches are more form-fittting. As a result, my wrist bone feels some pressure from the watch at times. Not a deal breaker for me - I wear the watch almost every day. And it may just be my wrist. I purchased the green bezel watch with the lighter watch face background. Very easy to read and functions well. Pleased with purchase.

Great sports watch. As with all heart rate monitors, keeping contract with real time heart rate measurements gets a little tricky after 45+ minutes of exercise (i.e. sweat), but the display is great, and easy to use. The exercise summary could be better by allowing you to see a daily total though - exercise more than once in a day and you can only review the last event.

I bought this watch for my husband and he really likes it except the loop that you put the end of the band back through. The band will not stay in the loop. He is going to order a different band.

Bought this watch for my husband, as he had been looking for a neat sports watch (something a little different than your average one). He loved it! He's a Clemson Tigers fan, so he really liked the orange. He said it's really easy to use and that all of the features are great for his workouts.

Love this monitor. It's easy to use, accurate, and the strap is comfy. Much better than my Polar because it's so much more user friendly.

I've been very happy with this watch as a HR monitor. Easy to use (the instructions that come with it are not much help but the online guide was good) and the chest strap is comfortable. The watch strap works but is a little small for a man's wrist. I also wish it had a back light as the display is a little hard to read in low light conditions and impossible to read at night. For the price I'm very happy with it, though again, i only use it a HR monitor. I would not use this as an everyday watch.

My wife bought me a Vector for my birthday as I recently was in need of a 'field' watch. I consider myself somewhat of a watch aficionado, and have been impressed so far. Have read complaints about the sensitivity of the face, but Suunto appears to have taken steps to correct with the crystal. Watch looks great, now it is just a matter of calibrating everything and then getting my head around the functionality. Watch looks great.

I found the Suunto M2 to be just what my trainer wanted. It is easy to use and very accurate. I've checked the accuracy when I was on the elliptical and the tread mill. My heart rate on the watch and the machines was the same. So, when not on the machines, I know that my HR is correct. Also, the chest strap, I really forget I have it on. The watch looks very fashionable and is comfortable. I gave it an overall four because, even though the numbers are large enough, at my age, I need my glasses to read the prompts. If you have 20/20, you won't have a problem.

I am now on my third Vector and absolutely love and swear by them. The display is easy to read especially if you have vision issues. Most chrono watches are too small to read for me and Suunto solves the problem. I get about 2 years out of a set of batteries. I am about to buy a new one as the printed char tend to rub off over time and use (the only negative).

This has a very simple clean design and look. It is smaller than your typical Suunto X-Lander. I have not used the heart monitor or exercise features. One knock is that it does not have a back light feature.

This is the second time I purchased this watch. The first one I wore on an expedition to the summit of Kilimanjaro. It was the perfect companion. I always knew the altitude, could check the barometer, it looked great too. I gave it to my guide after the expedition because he kept commenting on it, and I was pretty sure he would never be able to afford to purchase one for himself. When I got back home I purchased the Suunto Core to replace it. The Core is OK, it's supposed to be an upgrade from the Vector, but I didn't like it and so I didn't wear it. I just bought the Vector again, couldn't be happier to have my perfect outdoor watch again. This one is a classic for a reason. You'll have to get your own because I'm hanging on to this one!
