A good watch for the "active" individual. You can collect data and download it in your computer.

Suunto makes the very top-of-the-line sports instrument for almost any outdoor activity (mountaineering, running, boating..etc). They also make dive computers that double as a watch when you're not underwater. My only complaint as far as dive computers is that diving is an all or nothing sport; meaning that you're either very safe with your computer and equipment or you're dead. So I would be more comfortable with a company that ONLY makes dive computers like Apeks rather than one that makes several sports instruments. My friend has the Mosquito and although he sometimes wears it as a watch it really looks kinda big and clunky.

I use a Suunto mosquito and I haven't had any problems with it. it is nitrox-capable,compact and there is a built-in log software. my only problem with it is it doesnt have a mac support but i have a pc so it's not a major concern.

Actually, Suunto is one of the more specialized watch makers, as mentioned they do a lot of watches for outdoor activities and are well known for that. They have their own software for their dive watches. I just read an article in an English dive magazine that that Seiko did the last watch/dive computer for Apeks. Seiko also did the Mares Nemo Sport fyi.....

In a span of 2.5 years and had logged 40 dives, mine leaked and had to have it service which cost about the same as buying a new one.

I've had a Suunto Mosquito since 2001 and it's still working as well as it did the day i bought it. Over 1000 dives and its never given me a problem.

got 2 vectors, black ang green, both are good to me all function or most are well used, when we go hunting and camping, i dont dive, but during hunts it take the worst beating from rain to mud to vegitation, i love this watch, its lite and rugged, i think, its a very good buy considering its kinada expensive, 16k i think its price now,

go get one, be one of the very few, :thumbsupsmiley:

Whatever your passion - marine, golf, snow sports, cross sports or diving - Suunto dive computers and instruments, wristop computers, field and marine compasses and other tailored precision instruments help you to exceed yourself.

Suunto instruments remove insecurity caused by uncertainty. With the best tools, it is safer to push your boundaries. To get the most out of your sport, harness all essential information for your benefit - instantly during the performance.

I finally replaced my Suunto(Diving) with a Casio Pathfinder (Diving). I have used it for 12 dives and so far so good. My Suunto is still working after the repair but I just wanted to try the Pathfinder. It has cool features too.

I have a T3 used mostly for running (I have the foot pod too). I have been using it for almost 2 years now.

I have to say though that I prefer to use my G-shock for running.
