Expensive, but a great product

PostedMarch 1, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
I was using a Garmin forerunner for a few years, but grew tired of the short battery life. It seemed most of my activities were partially lost due to a dead battery. This watch solves that problem, and has all of the great online features of the Garmin products. The watch face is a little bit large for a woman and the price is a bit high, but overall I'm happy with the product.

great GPS watch full of features and easy to use

PostedJanuary 21, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, great gps
Great watch; bought for trekking, cycling and skiing. Very pleased with it. It would be even better if Suunto could have put Bluetooth in so it could communicate with the phone so maps could be seen in detail but this is a relatively minor issue. Otherwise it's great. Gets GPS signal pretty much instantly. It's also really useful that when you've been out, the logging of where you've been on the web based Suunto Movescount is pretty accurate. Overall A+

Great Computer!

PostedJune 3, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great, great functionality, 3 bike pod profiles, rechargeable battery
Cons: expensive suunto accessories
I love the features and functions of this computer; not only is good for cycling but many other sports that I enjoy including mountaineering, hiking, gym work and power walking.
I am using with 3 bikes, my MTB, my road bike and my indoor bike. All three have Garmin Speed/Cadence sensors fitted as as the Computer has three bike pod profiles, this works perfectly!
The GPS satellite sync-up is much faster than previous Garmin computers I have owned and the HRM / Foot Pod work perfectly as well.
I am totally in love with this toy. Best computer I have! :)
