Great customer service!!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I bought this watch for my boyfriend as a replacement for the same one that he left at a hotel that he absolutely loved. Backcountry gave great costumer service in the online chat and even price-matched this product from another company over seas. I would definitely shop here again and give this company my business.

Suunto Vector HR Watch

I am on my second one of these beauties. First one got left in a hotel room. Anyway, this watch does a great job of "walking the line" between functionality and ease of use. If you are in to tracking data on your HR, splits, altitude, etc., you can certainly do that. If you are looking to just have a basic HR watch with some cool add on features (like temperature and a compass), it qworks great for that too. It is made incredibly well andf is very comfortable to wear. One detractor for those very serious techies is that it is not conectable to a computer but that wasn't a big deal to me. Price is reasonable too. Great product.

Craftsmanship

Okay---

This may seem like a stupid issue but I wondered if it would be indicative of more serious problems down the road.
The Suunto lettering on the watch and the numbers wore off after a couple of weeks of use. I sent the watch back to Suunto. It took ten days to get the watch back and in a week, the lettering rubbed off again.
This is a nearly $300 watch, people!
Anyway, all Suunto would do was have me return the watch once again. I decided to take backcountry up on its promise and returned the watch for something else.

has everything

Great price and has everything. Little techie for an everyday watch but one of the only watches with an altimeter and a HR monitor..
Temp gauge is useless!

All watches that list calories burned are estimates.

Will the comfort belt work with Polar compatible gym equipment? Other gym equipment?

I was told that they should, although mine did not.

Comfortable

I got this watch about a month ago. I find the belt to be comfortable compared to the old Suunto belts. It seems to be reliable in detecting my heart rate. It does not calculate calories burned like some other Suunto watches. The compass and altimeter are pretty accurate, although I have not had to try it yet in a true outdoor experience. Not sure about the barometer. The thermometer seems to not be able to account for body heat so I have subtract 9 degrees (F) if I am wearing it.

new watch

I just got this for my birthday and I'm excited to get out and use it. After reading through the manual I think there's a pretty steep learning curve with this watch. But the initial set up of time/day/HR was pretty simple. Used it biking, it works great.

I'll see what it's like the next couple months and report back later. I like all the Alti/Baro/HR/Compass options, also why I bought this watch. Hopefully it won't be to difficult to get it all down.

Posted on

Will altimeter watches like this, being that its good to 29,000 or so feet, also be good for use with skydiving/base jumping? I want one for backpacking that can double with my other hobbies. Thanks :)

Responded on

I wouldn't use them for this type of activities where you need to have an extreme accuracy. Due to the fact the altimeter is linked to barometric pressure, there is some variances if you don't calibrate it regularly

Responded on

I forgot to say that this is not specific to Suunto, but this is the same for almost all outdoor wristop computers

Best Answer Responded on

Some jumpers in the dropzone I go to use this as their altimeters. It's quite accurate I should say. We matched it side by side with manual skydiving altimeters and they match.

AWESOMENESS!!!

So far so GREAT! Heart rate is awesome and I love how I can choose whether or not to have it beep. The comfort strap is just that, comfortable! I forget it's on quite often and then look down at my watch to check the time and realize that it's my heart rate!

The compass works great but I definitely need to remember to recalibrate before using it on a trip. I also LOVE to see my elevation at any time as well as the temperature which I use a LOT. You definitely need to remember that your body temperature manipulates the outdoor temp so I just take it off for about 5 minutes to have it regulate to the temp outside. I cannot wait to use that feature on a long camping or hiking trip!

Posted on

I am looking to buy either the Suunto Core or the Vector HR for my back-country/off-piste skiing husband. Does the Vector do everything the Core does, plus has a heart-rate monitor? Or is it missing a feature or two? The Vector HR is listed for "training" uses, while the Core is for "Skiing etc." so I am afraid I will miss a critical function if I go for the Vector HR.

Best Answer Responded on

If HR is a big deal go for the Vector HR (or the X6 HR series; nicer construction and menu) if not, the Core are great with an easier menu, extra features like sunrise/sunset, auto calibration compass, and real time logbooks.

Posted on

I'm looking at buying the T6c or the new Vector HR. I'm an outdoor guide and endurance runner wanting to find the best of both worlds i.e. Altimeter, Barometer, Compass + HRM & good chrono features. I'd rather have one watch that does it all, but it seems as if the HR function on the Vector HR might be pretty basic (e.g. no PC interface). Should I instead look for two separate watches...??? Cheers!

EDIT: I am also considering the X6HR, though it is a few years old and a few hundred $$ more expensive.

Responded on

Polar is based in the same town in Finland as Suunto.

Responded on

I'm a big fan of the X6HR, it has the full set of ABC plus the basic HR functions, and computer interface. I've been wearing an X6HRT for about 6 years, and it is still in great shape, and looks nice too.
