It must have squeezed through the cracks. I am a fan of suunto watches. I have a vector and core. Both great watches.
ive been looking at both of those. i found what seems like good deals on them, the core for 190 or the vector with HR monitor for 190 but i dont know which would work better
Casio Pathfinder has been on my wrist for the last ten plus years. I tried a Suunto, but it was more complicated than I wanted as it had so many features I wouldn't use. The Pathfinder is an ABC watch that is right in front of you and easy to understand and use.
i did handle them at rei, didnt see too much difference. what needed repair on the vector?I like the hr monitor as I'm a cyclist. I must tell you though, I have sent my vector back once to be fixed. I am getting ready to send it back again. This time they will say wtf did you do to this thing! The vector is lighter which I like. You should go to rei or a sporting goods store if you have one near and check both of them out.
ive got an 81 blazer that gets 18Ive used both the Suunto Vector and the Casio Pathfinder.
Good- MUCH lighter, I was surprised how much lighter. I really like the Baro graph in the upper left corner. I liked all the displays, when calibrated seemed accurate
Bad- Mine eats batteries like an 85 blazer eats fuel, Suunto specific watch band, complicated/not intuitative menus. I still have to get out my manual every time I .
