Suunto Vector HR Watch
I am on my second one of these beauties. First one got left in a hotel room. Anyway, this watch does a great job of "walking the line" between functionality and ease of use. If you are in to tracking data on your HR, splits, altitude, etc., you can certainly do that. If you are looking to just have a basic HR watch with some cool add on features (like temperature and a compass), it qworks great for that too. It is made incredibly well andf is very comfortable to wear. One detractor for those very serious techies is that it is not conectable to a computer but that wasn't a big deal to me. Price is reasonable too. Great product.
