No review here. My wife got sick of me wearing my roached X Lander all the time and bought me this.

Look good I keep forgetting these are dive watches. Congrats.
I've never felt like I truly belonged here and I believe it's time I move on.

Thanks, the Vector isn't a dive watch. It is designed for Mountaineering. I use mine to calculate vertical feet gained and lost when I'm skiing and mountainbiking.

Thanks for clearing that up, I always think Suunto= Dive watch had no idea they made watches for Mountaineering.

Nice looked watch, Chucko. I've heard good things about Suunto.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Are the Suunto Vector and Suunto X-Lander waterproof?
The
Suunto Vector and X-Lander are tested with ISO (international
Organization for standardization) standard 2281. This means that product
is water-resistant. In addition to the term 'water resistant' watches
may be marked with an indication of the test overpressure given as a
pressure in bar (3 bar) or in the sense of a substitute as a depth in
meters (30 meters). These indications however do not correspond to a
diving depth but refer to the pressure at which the water overpressure
test was conducted.

All Suunto watches can be used for normal swimming but none should be
taken below a depth of 2-3 meters. The exception to this is the Suunto
Core which can be taken to a depth of 10 meters.

Buttons should not be pressed under water on models other than the Suunto Core and Suunto Military X-Lander.

Remember the Suunto Vector and Suunto X-Lander are NOT SUITABLE FOR DIVING.

I've heard myself that it's good for divers. George Takei wears one, and you can't get more diverse than that.

Yep! Still ride to this day. Current model is my Dupraz D1 as well as an Osin 3800. I own the red model pictured in the vid below which is not me just for the record. Also own one of the largest private snowboard collections in the world.

I actually have a Suunto Mosquito and it is a dive computer(watch) that can chart your dives, how long you down, what depths and so on. Also one of my good friends has a Suunto dive computer (watch) as well and takes it all over the world and Dives with it much deeper than 3 meters. The two watches you mentioned are sport watches at best and very well made. Very good brand IMO.

over 600 photos of vintage boards, about 50% of which are mine. You have to let the photos load as you scroll down. Go to Hoodoo resort outside of Sisters and all of the vintage boards on the wall upstairs in the lodge are mine.

My vector has been to hell and back. It is a little worn out but still runs well and the battery changes are easy. The bezel? The bezel is easily the worst bezel ever foisted on watch buyers, ever. I want to find the guy at Suunto who decided to include the plastic bezel and kick him in the junk repeatedly, in the balls, the scrotum/taint area, the testicles.....just absolutely rochambeux his genitals until he apologizes. Other than that I like mine and wore it daily for about 7 years as a Soldier.

Thanks for the input, Anthony. How's the bezel?
