Suunto Vector Watches - Legendary outdoor sports instruments with a solid track record of high-altitude performance.
Suunto Vector Series Watches - Legendary outdoor sports instruments with a solid track record of high-altitude performance.
After a decade of travels, adventures and courageous expeditions, the Suunto Vector is still the most legendary of all the Suunto outdoor devices. With technology and durability that can take on the harshest of environments, the unique heritage of Suunto Vector has withstood the test of time.
The altimeter features a range up to 9,000 m / 29,500 ft, putting all 14 of the world's 8,000+ meter summits within your reach. Suunto Vector also features an altitude difference measurement function for following the vertical progress between different stages of a climb. It has an automatic 24-hour memory that stores the altitude and ascent/descent rate for every hour and also features an adjustable altitude alarm and a number of different memory functions. With the unique logbook function, you can also record your total and cumulative vertical ascents and descents, as well as the number of runs skied.
Suunto Vector displays the current barometric pressure and temperature, enabling you to forecast weather changes when they matter most. It also automatically records barometric data for the past four days: the first six hours in one-hour intervals and in six-hour intervals thereafter. When the reference altitude is set correctly, the instrument also shows the present sea level pressure, making it easier for you to read and understand the barometric pressure at high altitudes. However, when touring the mountains, don't forget that the detected barometric pressure changes when you are moving in a vertical direction, which at times, makes the tracking of weather changes a bit more complicated.
The digital compass of Suunto Vector guides you with cardinal or half-cardinal points and the north-south arrow. The compass can also be set to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a desired direction in unknown terrain. The declination adjustment function allows you to correct the difference between true north and magnetic north, for a more accurate reading and direction.
In addition to the outdoor-related functions, Suunto Vector also displays current time, in either 12 or 24-hour format.

Michael Deming of Cedar City, UT - March, 23 2010:
I have owned this watch for almost a year now. It has a lot of functions and I felt overwhelmed with all that it will do, but after a very short period of time using the piece of equipment, I was comfortable with all of the functions and feel that this is an essential part of my outdoor gear whether I am hunting, fishing, or camping. The compass feature is great, but you should make sure you calibrate it every time that your are planning on going out. Also, you should calibrate your altitude whenever you are at a known point of altitude since the altimiter is adjusted based on barometric pressure. You can't go wrong with a Suunto.
