User Review: Suunto Core
Price Paid: $299
I spend a minimum of 14 hours per day outdoors in ever-changing environments. I purchased the "Core Light Black", as I thought that the watch would be durable enough to handle my daily activities, and environments. I relied on this watch's functions to assist me with data required to perform tasks. However, after one to two months, its functionality, or lack thereof, became a hindrance.
The battery life depleted quickly, which would have been acceptable if I didn't have to recalibrate the barometric pressure and altitude every time it failed. Eventually, (three to four months) the watch was totally dysfunctional, without chime, light, or button operation.
I sent it to Suunto, hoping for a quick turn around. Suunto has had my watch for two months and cannot give me a concrete date as to when I will see my replacement. I suggested that they consider a free upgrade to an X10, but of course they discounted that idea and replied that they would do the upgrade for an additional $200. So much for customer satisfaction.
On a good note, the Aqualung diving products have worked great... Or do they?
