Great tool for improving your fitness
I have had this watch for about two months and it has been great! First thing I noticed was the battery life, it claims up to 25 hours to 170 hours, that really depends on how much you are using the GPS. I have not ever had an instance where my battery died as well. I love how it pairs really well with Strava and how it easily syncs with your phone as well via bluetooth. I know older models of really any brand for heart rate monitors are not that accurate. I actually used a chest strap HR monitor and this watch to compare, I have to say it is very accurate. I been training at 130 HR and two days out of the week at 150 HR to increase my threshold and it has been awesome. I use this mainly for running and mountain biking, the strap heels really nice as well. The interface is really user friendly and you can store your exercises in it so you can compare how you have been improving. I am stoked to use this for ski touring this winter and would like to use it and see how it holds up but so far, I am pretty stoked with how this watch operates and the functionality of it with the sports I use it for.

Room for improvement
This watch has a great aesthetic and fits less bulky than other smart watches. However, I've encountered a couple of flaws I haven't been able to tackle with Suunto customer service. Unfortunately, I found this all out after the watch had already seen some wear and tear and is outside of its return period. -Battery: Suunto and reviewers say that this has excellent battery life. I've found that around a week without even running is about all the battery lasts. This is worse than my Garmin Fenix 2 which was an older but more reliable watch. -Tracking: My runs have been off by about 1/4 mile per run so my pacing has been inaccurate. This feels like it defeats the purpose of this type of watch :( -HR monitor. This watch says my heart rate gets up to 200 bpm on jogs. Not true. Also RHR is 70-80 bpm. Also not true. For a watch marketed as the top of the top, I'm a little disappointed, especially now that I can't return/have to sell it but am not confident in the product. Check out the Garmin Fenix 5.

Longest battery life
- I've put it through the wringer
I bought this watch to train more effectively for ultra distance races. Skeptical about the battery at first, Suunto sure outdid themselves. I rarely ever have to charge it and when I do- the watch reminds me! I was able to wear it during my race 25 hours and accurate! I’ve used it also for cross training; cycling and hot yoga and it’s awesome- I have the worst tan line from never taking it off ;) I received this watch free for being an ambassador- but would have 100% purchased it, worth every penny!
