User Review: Suunto Core
By far the best functioning, most durable watch I've ever owned. I am a kayak instructor in the summer months and backcountry skier in the winter. I've owned my Core since March of '09 and have worn it daily since. I have never had a malfunction and have not even been able to scratch the face. I was going through a watch a year due to water leaks, scratched faces, or broken wrist bands, but the Core is showing no signs of failing in any of these areas.
I love the large display and the watch actually gets lots of compliments both in the field and at the pub afterwards. You do have to enable the locking feature to prevent frequent inadvertant button pushing, but that is easily accomplished.
