I decided to complete my Suunto "Black Collection"…

29 July 2009
  • Excerpt: I decided to complete my Suunto "Black Collection" with the Observer SR "Black Collection". I wanted a smaller more stealth size watch for under my hunting/fishing gear and it had to be tough and have bullet proof reliability. It is a much simpler animal than my X6M and is thinner and smaller. It feels solid on the wrist but could be worn without notice for days. Its stainless steel construction is solid and has just the right amount of weight without feeling heavy.

Suunto Observer

Consumer Democracy
7 May 2008
  • Summary: This is a great watch with a high quality brushed stainless steel finish, much like the famed Delorean sports car. It features am altimeter, barometer, electronic compass, dual time, alarms and is waterproof to 300 meters. This is a great watch with an attractive face design. The large digital led's themselves light up for night viewing instead of a backlight as used on most watches. It's a bit pricey at $350, but you can get it for about $250 on the internet.
  • Pros: the case scratches easily
  • Cons: the case scratches easily

  • Excerpt: Love this watch, have worn mine religiously for over 5 years. My band is finally starting to break down, but let it be known that I have been VERY ROUGH on this watch! I would have gone with the 5 but the alarms are a bit weak (they tell you this in the product materials so it wasn't a surprise). If you want a watch you can wear anywhere and still have a cool toy to play with get this one, though you may want to pony up a few more $$ and get the stainless band...

  • Excerpt: I bought the Suunto Observer about 4 years ago and it is still going strong. I have replaced the battery twice during that period, which is normal for these watches. I'm in the military and the compass, thermometer, and altimeter have been valuable tools on numerous occasions. You need to account for your own body temperature when using the thermometer while the watch is on your wrist (maybe subtract around 10 degrees). The compass is dead on once it has been declinated.
