Like so many other reviewers, the SR-strap quit on me as well. Mine quit at about the year and a half mark usual casual wear / tear. The watch, itself, is in great shape and still works flawlessly. Which begs the question as to why Suunto equipped such a durable, reliable, watch with such an unreliable strap? I have no problem recommending this watch, but only if you're willing to set aside some cash for near-future strap replacement(s).
