The Suunto® Vector Watch combines an altimeter, barometer and compass with all the features of a sophisticated sports watch. A great tool for hikers, climbers and skiers, the Vector provides real-time information about your surrounding environment, to help you safely practice your sport of choice.
Its ergonomic design, with a large display and convenient control buttons, makes it easy to use in even the harshest conditions.
Suunto Vector measures the climber's vertical performance up to 9,000 meters. It records the total and cumulative vertical ascents and descents, as well as the number of runs skied.
The barometer function of the Suunto Vector helps the climber stay one step ahead of the storm by reading the weather trend on the display and interpreting changes in the barometric pressure.
The electronic compass, with bubble level, gives accurate readings with 2-3 degree precision. The compass can be set to track a certain bearing, and graphically show the difference between that and the actual bearing. This is a valuable tool, which together with the declination adjustment function, helps the hiker get back on track after minor or major detours.
With all these outstanding features, plus a 2 year warranty, the Suunto Vector Watch makes a great gift for any outdoorsman!

Suunto Vector Watch for Men
I have always wanted to try a Suunto but I would get cold feet and end up with a Swiss Army watch. Well, my last watch I broke and after careful consideration I finally decided to go with a Suunto Vector. It has the blaze orange stripe around the inside (the hunter instinct got the better of me). First let me say how awesome this watch is! I could not be happier. Honestly, after having this watch I really wanted to kick myself for not getting one sooner. The Scandinavians make the finest electronic devices in the world and this watch is no exception (its made in Finland). The altimeter, barometer and compass have proven to be accurate. It keeps impeccable time as well. The temperature gauge has proven to be accurate as well (within +/- 5 degrees). I use it all the time when I am hunting and fishing. You do have to take the watch off for about 15 minutes to get an accurate temperature reading. Once the temperature falls below zero it takes a little while longer though. I have had no issues with protection from water around this watch. I swim/fish with it all the time. One thing you will notice right away how large this watch is. Its not been a problem for me. I actually like it that way. Another thing you will notice right away is how shockingly light this watch. Its a large, bulky watch but it weights next to nothing. Nice when you literally wear your watch hard all day. Another thing I like about these watches are that they are self serviceable. You can replace the battery, any screws, or bands yourself without any special tools and its inexpensive to do so. You will not effect the integrity of the watch or its ability to keep water out either. Thats a super nice feature because I have a high end Swiss watch I have to send off just to have the batter replace its over $100 bucks just to have that done. Oh! just an fyi tip.....you can go on the internet and read the reviews about the size of the watch face and soft material used scratches on the easy side which can create problems viewing the watch..plus it damages it too. Not a good thing. I went to best buy and bought the cheapest phone screen protector they had ($10) and cut a circle out of it the size of the watch face and put in on there. It works perfect, you cant tell its even on there and it protects great. Super cheap insurance and theres enough material to make another screen protector or 2 after you wear the 1st one out. All in all a great purchase. You cant go wrong. I dont label this as a watch or a wrist computer like others: After the trust this watch has earned I label it a piece of gear!

Quality beyond measure
I bought one of the first Suunto Vectors in 1998 while in San Diego for $100. In 2011, while snorkeling off the North Shore of Oahu the watch flooded. That was owner error. I have never worn a more durable and reliable time piece than a Suunto. I'm replacing it this winter with a new Vector. Thanks, Bass Pro for carrying this awesome watch!
