User Review: Suunto Core
Price Paid: $295
I ordered my Core in November 2006, got it the last day of February. It was nicely packaged and worked great...for a week. It started resetting itself randomly. Every time I looked for the time, it was in the reset mode.
I mailed it back to Suunto, who does have a well-oiled (and well used) return mechanism. I had to wait several weeks for a replacement. It arrived in mid-May. However, the compass in THAT watch didn't work, at all. So, I sent it back to Suunto. Now I get to wait until mid-June for a replacement.
So, it's been 6 months since I originally ordered it, and still don't have a watch. I expect I'll own a second-generation iPhone before I get a Core that works.
They ARE nice, but I wouldn't get one online or by mail order...go into a store and set it up before you leave. If they won't let you do that, buy something else.
