User Review: Suunto Core
Price Paid: $350
Received my Core light back around the first of November. Within a day the sound went out on it. After a call to Suunto USA, they confirmed it to be a bug in the firmware and stated that I needed to remove, wait, and then replace the battery each time this happened to get the sound back.
A couple of days later I found that the reference altitude could not be set correctly, after another call to Suunto this was also blamed on the firmware version and I was ask to send the watch back to Suunto USA for replacement.
That was over a month ago and Suunto now states that I will not get my warranty replacement until after they have filled all their new holiday orders (next year some time...). That is a crock. Do yourself a favor, buy another watch, or if you must have the Suunto, wait until they work the bugs out.
