I think this watch is relatively cheap. My battery went dead after less than 3 months. The Orange band was fraying and "slipped" thru the fasteners regularly.
I went with Suunto b/c it got good reviews, and their higher end productions might be fine, but this watch "felt" Cheap. I upgraded for a few more dollars to a Polar AXN310. It's an "Altimeter" but is also an HR monitor. This watch is solid, purchased the 310 and got the 500 for father. He loves it.
