PeterH wrote a review of Suunto t3 Heart Rate Monitor Watch on April 12, 2007
The Suunto t3 has been the biggest letdown. I bought it to use as a heart rate monitor when I run and swim. When the watch is under water, it does not connect to the heart-rate band so there is no tracking of your heart-rate during swimming. Also, the face of the watch is incredibly cheap plastic. I got some paint on the face and used a rough sponge to get it off...now the face of the watch is completely scratched up and hard to read. Don't understand why the face is so cheap on a $150 watch.
