Summary: The watch was exactly as advertised. In the last month I've used it underwater, in snow and at altitudes varying from sea level to 18000+ ft above and it performed exactly as expected. You need to read the manual and get familiar with the features to know what it is supposed to do.
Summary: I purchased this watch for my husband. He is thrilled with its luminosity at night, large display, ease of operation, and style. I am happy that it is nice enough for him to wear out after work. Functionality and style in one!
Suunto Core = Great Watch, very pleased with my choice

Summary: So I ordered this watch after reading a ton of reviews and watching a few video reviews online. I was looking for a rugged watch with a few features that might come in handy in the back country. This watch covers all the bases I was looking to cover, and does it in style.
Summary: Took my Suunto All Black Core camping for three weeks in Algonquin Park and it predicted the weather every day for us. People mentioned the backlight being a little to dim but i think it's about right on.
