Keith W wrote a review of Suunto Observer Watch with Steel Body and Stainless Steel Band on August 5, 2003
While I found this watch to be a handsome timepiece, I was disappointed in how complicated it was. 148 I.Q. and I was stumped on the setting of the altimeter to the imperial setting instead of the metric. It seems to me that if the watch was intended to be sold in the U.S., it should be pre-set to read in feet. This product is not something you will take out of the box, slap on your wrist and go. Even the band will take time to adjust.
