I am looking to buy either the Suunto Core or the Vector HR for my back-country/off-piste skiing husband. Does the Vector do everything the Core does, plus has a heart-rate monitor? Or is it missing a feature or two? The Vector HR is listed for "training" uses, while the Core is for "Skiing etc." so I am afraid I will miss a critical function if I go for the Vector HR.
If HR is a big deal go for the Vector HR (or the X6 HR series; nicer construction and menu) if not, the Core are great with an easier menu, extra features like sunrise/sunset, auto calibration compass, and real time logbooks.
