User Review: Suunto Core
My black/orange core has been sent in for repair or replacement. It is the 2007 version.It would not re-set and the exit button at the top left would not function. The display would go thru random modes and I could not get it to set the time.
It was received by the USA service center on Jan. 22, 09, and as of speaking with them today, They are still waiting for someone to get to my watch. So much for a 14 day turnaround. If it requires replacement, It will be sometime in March 2009 before the backordered Cores are due to be delivered.
The repair center is very nice and courteous, But I believe they are just overwhelmed with warranty repairs. Probably due to the high failure rate of the Core. I like the Core, But I didn't read enough about it before I took delivery of mine. I read the newer ones are supposed to be better quality wise. Let's all hope that is true.
