Suunto Observer Watch Review

Rated 3.5 Stars by 30 Actual Owners


The Suunto Observer is a highly multifunctional watch which is geared towards hikers and skiers mainly.  Its altimeter function measures your vertical ascent and decent and also provides an alarm that can be set at certain heights.  The watch also has a barometer which measures air pressure and can help to determine weather changes.  Another function is the lap counter for skiers to keep track of runs made.  The watch also has thermometer and compass indicators.

The watch is made of a mixture of stainless steel and hard plastic for lightweight durability.  The face of the watch is protected by a hardened crystal mineral for scratch resistance, and set back into the watch a bit to avoid abrasions.

Users have rated this watch 3.5 stars out of 5 over 30 reviews.  Most users are very happy with the overall look and function of this watch.  Many people remark that it looks great on their wrists, and that the functions work really well.  The only complaints about this watch have had to do with the bands, which are said to break down after a couple of years.  This is really not that bad, considering many watch bands will do the same thing.  Big discount plus free shipping available through Amazon.
