    This watch is my favorite. My ONLY complaint is that you have to switch batteries about every year-and-a-half, and that's just because it does so much. This watch is super tough, too. If you've got the money, this does make a nice patrol watch, as it looks pretty sweet when its scratched up.

    Another thing I love about this watch is that you can replace almost everything on it yourself! Suunto sell replacement part, so that if you don't like yours all scratched up, you can have it looking brand new in no time.

    I'm on my second one and I must admit that I love these watches. Note that it is not my second becuase the first died. I had a friend that retired when diagnosed with cancer and he loved mine so much I let him have it. I currently have the X-Lander and it is a great watch. They are a little expensive but I have found they are very simple to operate and Suunto sales almost every individual component for these watches so you can make repairs yourself. I have only had to make one repair in the 11 years of using this product and it was a band replacement.

    My first was the Vector and I purchased it when I was in the military and being a sniper that thing took one hell of a beating and never let me down. The large face and dim backlight makes it great for tactical operations in low light or dark conditions. The compass is also pretty accurate. I completed a land navigation course with a friend of mine to test it. He used a standard compass and I used the Vector and it was dead on! Like I said earlier it may be a little expensive but I have never been disappointed with either of mine and I have always been able to make the minor repairs needed myself. Definitely worth the price and if you look around online you can actually find the Vector for around $180.00.
