Military Grade Review by Seshu
I'm a militarily member so I was looking for a multi-function watch that would prove useful and practical to me for use in and out of uniform. I was drawn to Suunto because of the styling and functions they have and I was considering the Core, Vector , and the X-Lander . I ended up buying an All-Black Core and I'm very happy with my decision. One thing that I was hesitant about when ordering my watch was the overall size. I have very small wrists and these watches are big, but I was pleasantly surprised when I first put it on because due to the styling of the watch and the way the band is attached it does not look funny or awkward on my wrist. I read plenty of reviews, most were pretty helpful, before I made my purchase. This review will probably sound similar to many others but I couldn't find many that had to do with the All-Black model so I wanted to write a note about this color. On the website it states that there is not militarily core model but that you can make your own and they give instructions on how to purchase a specific color and a new black band. That really isn't necessary because the All-Black is already set up that way. This offers a non-flashy look with plenty of professional functions. The only note that I have is that the bezel ring for the compass remains illuminated at night (north facing two hash-marks) just like a standard militarily compass. While this is useful for navigating at night it is noticeable to the naked eye at close range and highly illuminated with the use of NODS. This is not a big deal by any means but it was something that I didn't think about until my first night experience. so I just wanted to mention it here. I have not had any issues with the watch or battery and it is by far my most favorite watch I've ever owned. The negative face is super easy to read, even in sunlight, dimly lit rooms, just about everywhere. The face is usually dim at these extremes but still easily readable. I have found that the functions and menus are very intuitive and easy to use no manual reading required. The compass seems very accurate and steady; however some of the other features are not as accurate. The altimeter does not stay constant and I find that I have to adjust it from time to time whenever I see an elevation marker since it is measured by air pressure. I use it more as a rough estimate than an exact instrument, but I don't require 100% accuracy when it comes to alt, just a good ball park. I have not figured out (or tried) to use the barometer and I have left my watch in the auto setting for alt/baro. The thermometer is only accurate if you take the watch off for 20 minutes or so since the heat from your wrist has an impact on the temperature reading. Other than those I love all the functions of the Core, dual time, sunrise/sunset, timers, stopwatch, alarms, logs, everything! Bottom line, this is the best watch (and most expensive so that gives you an idea of what I have used in the past) I've ever owned and I will definitely come back to Suunto for my next purchase.

Great watch - only a few drawbacks Review by Carolyn
The Observer was my second purchase from Suunto. I bought it because it had many of the features I loved on my Vector, yet the Observer is smaller and I find it more comfortable to wear. For day-to-day use the watch is perfect. Having used the Vector extensively, I found the menu easy to navigate and the watch is easy to set. This is one of my more accurate watches. Drift is inevitable with instruments, yet I have not noticed any issues with time, altitude/pressure or temperature. The watch is equipped with a compass as well, but I rarely use a watch compass. I know of no electronic compass that can replace a good baseplate compass. I have worn the watch sport climbing, alpine climbing, backpacking, hiking, mountain biking and skiing. I am of the opinion that this is a better "touring" watch than a hard-core back country instrument. I wear the Observer more, yet I still prefer the Vector when I am out in the wild.
Buttons work great in the office and around the town. On two occasions skiing, the running log in the "log book" function was prematurely terminated when buttons were pressed by coat/glove material. The band does not fit over my gloved wrist. I no longer wear this watch skiing.
Another item of note worth describing is the independent altimeter/barometer function. On the Observer, the watch is either in altimeter mode or barometer mode. I originally thought this would be nice because the altitude would be locked down when I am stationary, and the barometer would be locked down when I'm on the move. The feature works great if I know I'm going to be on the move and if I remember to change over to the altimeter. Since I live in the mountains, I change elevations every time I get in the car. On occasion, I am curious to know my approximate elevation, but I don't change over every single time I head out the door. Over time, I have found that I prefer the "floating" format for pressure that the Vector has. Even with changes in the atmospheric pressure, I can have a pretty good elevation estimate.
- Great looking watch
- Functions work properly
- Rugged. Only the tiniest of scratches on the crystal after seven years or so.
- Altimeter resolution is 1m/3ft. The resolution is not finer than the instrument's ability to measure.
- The "log book" feature is outstanding. I love it and use it.
- The display (standard Black on white) is easy to read.
- Alarm is not very loud.
- Stopwach resolution is 1/10 second. Not a huge deal, but most digital watches are 1/100. This "con" flies in the face of the altimeter resolution "pro" because my finger presses are less precise than a 1/100 reading anyway.
- Every digital watch should have a timer! The Observer does not.
- I prefer the floating altimeter/barometer as found on the Vector.
- Battery cover is quite difficult to remove. I have always managed to do it without digging up the back of the case, but the cover is sealed in there pretty tight even when it's not locked down.
Bottom line:
Great watch. Very useful features for the outdoors enthusiast, but probably better suited to hiking and biking than skiing or climbing. I would buy it again. (Posted on 10/12/11)
Great watch with a horrible strap Review by Jack
This watch is really a great watch. I was issued this while in the military and it worked like a champ for the 5 years I owned it. The backlight is very unique in the sense that instead of the back of the face lighting up and the readings staying black it is the opposite which is something I really appreciated while out on missions. The compass was good enough to give you a good sense of direction and keep you going on the right vector, but I still relied on my pocket compass to do my land nav. I never really used the barometer or altimeter settings, so I can't really comment on those. The thermometer was really pretty accurate and if you look at temp reading while on your wrist I had to remember that it wasn't going to be spot on due to my body temp.

The worst thing about this watch was it's strap. I'm talking in the past tense because I just lost the watch yesterday. I have already replaced the strap (about a year and a half ago) and it broke again. The only problem is I don't know when/where and I can't find the watch anywhere. So my advice would be to inspect your strap about once a month or so to look for cracking, etc. The strap should last a good 2-5 years depending on how often you wear the watch. A new strap will run you in the neighborhood of $100, but as another commenter wrote there are no options for a full titanium or even stainless steel strap. (Posted on 10/12/11)
Takes a lickin and i ain't bullsittin Review by Alan
outdoor oriented lad, grew tired of purchasing thirty dollar timex watch only to fall apart in three months. purchased this watch upon its inception around year 2001 or so. great watch, puts up with my inability to tender gently while being worn. my only piece of advice-spend the extra bucks and purchase the stainless/titanium band. the elastomer band does not last and is nothing more than a futile effort to stay affixed to wrist. great customer service, excellent & accurate features, and rarely do i endorse items but this one warrants lavish praise.
