easy, sleek, not too big. Very happy

Great watch. Picked one up on Steep and CHeap for a great price and have been very pleased. I'm familiar with ABC watches (calibration, data storage etc) but this watch would be very easy to learn to use even if you'd never used an ABC watch before.

Altimeter- I have found that its accurate within 25ft or so, in my opinion that's good enough- i'm using it for hiking and skiing. Barometer is simple to use and read. Compass is accurate when calibrated corretly, declination is also very easy to set. Thermometer, like other ABC watches, is affected by your body temp. I've found my difference between the watch and actual temp to be ~20 degrees. If you need exact temp readings, take off the watch and leave it alone for a few min and it's really accurate. THe temp readings even go to 1/10th of a degree.

Size- I have relatively small wrists. The Suunto Core looks like i'm wearing a hockey puck on my wrist. This ABC is a "medium" sized face but I can say that it is def smaller than many other ABC's and therefore looks alot better on, thought its certainly not as small as say a Timex wristwatch. I'm pleased with the sizing, haven't had any issues getting it under any layers. The silver face is fancy enough that I can wear it in the office as well.

Highly recommended watch for the outdoors but good looking enough to be used for every day activities and work. Comes with an extra battery which is a nice touch.
