Strap Problem. I will not recommend to buy this product.

Although the watch itself is very good, after a year of casual wearing (having postponed my climbing for a while) the strap snapped off unexpectedly where the rubber meets the titanium joint.

From the very unfriendly Suunto service I was informed that the strap has only 1 year warranty, compared to the watch which has 2 years, and charged me 90EUR for its exchange.

This represents 15% of the total watch cost with a possibility of paying this amount every year as there is no other strap that can be used with this watch and let’s face it, when you are in a middle of nowhere climbing what would you do with a watch 100ft below you. Go elsewhere!
