User Review: Suunto Vector
Price Paid: $160
I hate to say it, but I have had nothing but trouble with my Vector. I purchased the watch in OCT/NOV 07 and by JAN 08, I was already cursing and swearing up a storm.
To my absolute horror after getting out of the shower one day, 2/3's of the interior under the crystal was full of water. Shortly thereafter, the watch itself began to display a whole cacophony of symbols and various intensities of each of the icons.
I thought to myself "Self, maybe you should get a new battery." So I did, and the watch lasted another 4 weeks, then died. Repeat that process one more time, and that is where I am today.
Now, perhaps I made the mistake of buying the watch through a company who's name rhymes with Shmamazon. I even contacted the outdoor company who sent the watch through the on-line company. They were very helpful after the first e-mail, but I have heard nothing from them for nearly 2 months. I am not exactly in a position where I can mosey on over to the nearest Suunto dealer.
I had looked forward to my new watch, but instead have a nice little paperweight. Looks like a G-Shock or Timex in my near future.
