Fun Watch - Lasts a Long Time

J. K. La Plante, Amazon
18 November 2014
  • Summary: I've owned the Suunto Vector for ten years and it's still "ticking." All the markings, branding on the yellow, and numbers on the black ring have worn off. But functions are all intact. Band is still solid. Scratches to the face are minimal, and I am a brute who bangs, scrapes, and everything else. Not simple (for me) to cycle through the functions, since I, like most, don't read the documentation. But still, a kind of fun watch.

Scratches easily, but seems to last

Greg, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: Accurate watch, but it scratches easily. Definitely not very hard plastic. The watchband will break with time, but considering I've been wearing this watch for 12 years (2 of them actually), I'd have to say they last well. I like the yellow, it's bright and makes me smile, like having a ginormous bumble-bee on my wrist.

Great Introduction to ABC Watches

Tactical is Practical, Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: I had a Suunto Vector for a few months before upgrading to the Suunto Core. It was reasonably accurate (before you bash ABC watches, understand that they don't magically work perfectly. Never rely on one as your primary or sole reference for any of these tasks) and loaded with just about every feature you really need. A few points stick out.

Yellow is not vibrant like the picture shows.

Ashley Lytton, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: So disappointed in the color of this watch. Purchased for my boyfriend as an anniversary gift. He has wanted a barometric watch ever since I can remember, something to do with fishing?? His bass boat is black and yellow so I thought this would be perfect! Anniversary is still 2 weeks away, so I'm unsure about anything else at this watch over time. p.s. - I wanted to trade for a solid black but WAS NOT going to pay for shipping, again.

Disappointed - Bulky, Complicated and Poor Screen Contrast

G. A. P. "G.A.P.", Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I got this watch for Christmas and so wanted to like it. Ultimately I returned it because of the following issues: 1. Watch is a lot bulkier than it looks from the photos. This is a big bulky watch. 2. Dark background and contrasting numbers is far from "easy to read" as stated in the description. Almost impossible to read in dimly lit environments. No way to increase the contrast. This was my biggest issue. 3. Backlight is very dim.

Best watch for hiking period.

C. Lemar, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: I've been wearing my Vector for three years now, and two summer's ago I walked 2,500 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail and can say that I considered my Vector the most trusty and useful possession in my life then. What was most useful about it and why I would recommend this watch for hiking and walking in woods is alone for it's bottom right button on the default screen. When pushed the watch will go from time mode to compass mode for 5-10 seconds.

Excellent watch for sporting/hunt applications

cs, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: Was out hunting and a buddy of mine was showing me his Suunto. Had it for 10 years and never let him down, durable, lots of cool features so I thought I would get one. First one I purchased was the Suunto Mil. Did not like it, sent it back, not because it wasn't awesome but I found it a bit hard to read and a bit hard to navigate the complex functions.

Excellent

Daniel, Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: I'm confused on why everyone is having so many problems with the waterproofing. I've swam in the ocean, fished in rivers and lakes and drilled in swimming pools for 7 years straight with my suunto vector hr. I understand it is a different function but the same exact model and platform. Rain or snow I've taken this watch through it all and it has performed exceptionally. In 2006 I was in RANGER school and many of the candidates swore by this watch.
