After using this watch for 6 weeks or so now, 4 or 5 times a week I am very happy with my purchase! Great watch, foot pod and HR belt super easy to use.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
First night straight out of the box and the HR belt and Pod paired up instantly. Super easy to use and super accurate. Only thing I would say is I thought the watch might have been a bit larger. I am used to some of the the other Suunto watches that are a bit bigger and was expecting this one to be of similar size, but overall it is super easy to use and the movescount.com login and how easy it was to download the data from my first run made it even better. Great watch with so many features!!!
2nd time around
I bought one for myself months after I got the man one. I tried to love it because it was so simple to set up and use, but it just wouldn't pair with the POD. I watched the Youtube videos and checked the FAQ pages and nothing worked. The heart rate reading would also be off sometimes, for the first few minutes. I contacted Suunto, but their customer service is non-existent. Thankfully, Backcountry has an excellent return policy and I opted to return for an exchange.
2nd time around and this thing works! I love having a relatively small watch tracking my progress as a trail run or ride. I don't even notice the POD, but it tracks the mileage accurately, as opposed to some apps out there (imap). I'm giving it a 4 because of the Backcountry service and this second set works flawlessly.

I got it for my hubby who uses it on hikes and road rides. So far, he likes it, but has noticed that when he hikes with the dogs (rambunctious and leashed) the buttons somehow get pushed and the program is stopped. Other than that, no complaints. It's light and easy to use and I got a price match from Backcountry. Their customer service rocks, as usual.
Too many pieces to it

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I got this to replace an older heart rate monitor that I used for all of my activities. I was hoping to find a monitor that could track how far I run or bike in addition to tracking my heart rate. This Suunto Quest did not meet my needs. In addition to having the watch and a heart rate strap, there was a clip for your shoe to track your distance. If you want GPS tracking, there's another device you can get to go around your arm (not included in this package). In my opinion that's just way too many things to strap on. I'm going to try a Garmin next since it only seems to have 2 pieces: the watch and the heart rate monitor.
I will say that the heart strap was pretty comfortable being that it was all an elastic strap except for a large circular piece that goes in the center of your chest (this is hard to understand from the instruction manual if it goes in front or back but it works much better in the front). The plastic piece never felt right against my sports bra. I wish it fit under it better.
The watch wasn't too big and it looked pretty good on my wrist. I liked that you could customize the screens to what you want shown.
The foot clip was small and lightweight. It would work well for someone wanting to track their cadence.
Uploading stats was very easy and fast. I liked that the watch could be near my computer but I didn't need to plug anything in. The movescount website where your stats are tracked is easy to use and set up well. I liked looking at the graphs of how I did and I kept wanting to improve from the day before. It was hard to compare two workouts side-by-side though.
Overall, I liked this watch but since I was looking for GPS tracking, it didn't meet my needs.
Excelente reloj, muy legero robusto y confiable, las insturcciones que viene en la caja son muy básicas, pero la página en línea es muy fácil manejar el softaware del reloj, muy amigable.
Estaba dudando entre Suunto, Timex y Garmin y Polar definitívamente hice la mejor compra.

Perfect HRM & Watch for Male & Female Athletes
I have searched high and low for a female athlete friendly HRM and watch. I had a Polar FT60 for the past two years but was really unhappy with their website and the fact that a Flowlink component had to be used in order to download your data. I tried the Polar RCX5 but had to return it because the watch was much too big for petite wrists (I am 5'7"/125 with a 5 1/2" wrist). I also didn't like the fact that Polar's foot pods are about 3-4x the size of Suunto's. The HRM chest transmitter for the Suunto Quest is the most comfortable I have ever worn - I forget I even have it on. I have never had a problem with an accurate HRM reading and the watch is fully adjustable so everything fits perfectly. Suunto has a Movestick mini as well so no annoyingly larger dongles to transfer your data. The Movescount website is excellent - my data downloads in less than 15 seconds. Suunto is the way to go if you are a serious athlete! I also tried the T6D but it is dated (2010), requires hardwire data transfer, and is way too large for smaller female wrists. I also tried the M5 but that is geared more toward entry level weight loss goals with structured programs - not for serious athletes. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
How would this watch fit a women? I have...
How would this watch fit a women? I have a pretty small wrist, and I'm wondering if it will be too big or bulky?
The Quest isn't huge, but it's not tiny either. The sides are completely vertical, so the face is the same size as the rest of the body, so it may feel bigger than it actually is when on your wrist. The band is designed so that you can use any hole for the buckle. You can make it fit.
It fit's my wife very well. She loves this watch with speed and distance
