Excerpt: I recently bought a Suunto X10 from Amazon for use in the UK. For the price I expected something that would work out of the box. I've followed the instructions and find it pitiful. I've trawled the internet to no avail. I've reset the watch and tried many times. It totally fails to get a satellite signal. No signal strength bars shown. I've tried an open space with clear sky aspects for over thirty minutes and still no signal.

Excerpt: For skiing, my Suunto X10 has worked flawlessly for four years with the only issue being condensation under the face. For hiking, I just started using it, and honestly don't seem to be able to get it to work accurately. We have been taking day hikes around northern CA for the last month, and I have worn it on a daily basis.

Excerpt: I have a Suunto Vector (yellow and orange) with positive and negative face, and the only thing that miss is the GPS, the others things are really fantastic. Now I also have this Suunto X10 (not mil) and the look is really very good. It has all the things that make Vector the real one. But the X10 has some problems, that are the buttons press, the buttons broke, and in some old models the bezel, but i think that the bezel's problems are on old models.
A great wrist-top computer IF WHAT YOU WANT IS A WRIST-TOP COMPUTER!!!

Summary: It's hard to rate a watch that isn't really a watch. Suunto is careful to advertise this item as a "wrist-top computer," and that's probably the best description overall. It's also the best way to articulate why this "computer" isn't for everyone. Its main attraction is the GPS function -- on this, it fares much better at obtaining a GPS fix than its predecessor, the X9Mi.
Summary: very nice look altimeter is worst than you could imagine compass is very easily effected by any magnetic field even by a small electric current , magnetic compasses are less sensitive, it works very good but away from everything gps looses signal very easily ! even outdoor ! when it has signal it works very good (i cross check it with another gps device). very frendly menu i only used it a couple of months now i cant say how reliable it is. very expensive.
Summary: I bought the watch a while ago as a replacement for my old watch. It works great and is very accurate for its size (~5-20 feet). The battery life is a little low so i would recommend charging it fully before going out on any treks. Another complaint is that the buttons are pretty hard to press.
Summary: Great watch in a great price. The best thing about for me, is that i can export my routes to Google Earth, and I can import maps to my watch. All in all, it's a good example for a good Suunto, great for tracking and for those who like to hike.
