    "This watch looks good and has a ton of features I'd enjoy. My only complaint is the digital time read out. It's a small annoyance but I much prefer the analog clock look even if it's in a digital watch. There is just something classic about a traditional clock face"

    "The best feature i love about this watch is that i can upload my routes that i pick on to the watch. The other watches are only routes you can use that is in the watch and came with the software. With the Suunto you can upload your own and have it with you everywhere. Just love that feature, that alone makes this watch worth its money in gold. "
