Great Altimeter
Rating: 4.0 Stars
I bought this watch when it first came out in 1998. I used in the field extensively and it was very dependable for the compass and the altimeter. You need to adjust the current barometric pressure daily for best results on the altimeter but it works great and at the time was better than any GPS elevation. It matched topo maps very closely on elevation. Shows barometric drops for declining weather conditions. I still have the watch and it has degraded in its old age but it still works. I think the compass is worthless now but i had at least 10 good years of operation and it never lost its seal or fogged up. I did not expose the watch to high impacts but it does look rather fragile so I would keep it from heavy impact work.

Not tough enough
Rating: 2.0 Stars
I bought this watch in black and have had it for more than a year. It's functions are good, however, I have had to cover the entire battery compartment with black silicone due to the ever present leaks, my crystal was continually fogged. I have had the bezel pop off and the side covers come off as well. I like Suunto watches but this watch is very disappointing. Unfortunately it is not worth the money for normal operational duties and, I think, for normal at home life.
