What watch do you wear?

I have quite few, but boght this one yesterday because of all the features.

Suunto Core Multifunction Watch - Light Black at REI.com
  • Altimeter, Barometer, Compass (ABC) wrist-top design delivers crucial data for gauging performance, direction and weather
  • Barometric altimeter is accurate to 30,000 feet and displays current elevation and elevation gain/loss and records entire session for later analysis
  • Unique start-from-zero function simplifies altimeter usage by eliminating need to enter a reference altitude
  • Barometer function measures and records air pressure to help predict changing conditions; weather trend indicator shows history over last 3 - 6 hours
  • Automatic Alti/Baro mode senses movement, or lack thereof, and seamlessly switches between altimeter and barometer functions
  • Storm alarm feature activates when a rapid drop in air pressure is detected over a three-hour period; alarm sounds and flashes to indicate bad weather
  • Digital compass monitors direction; set and follow a bearing using rotating bezel ring or point top of watch in direction of travel to lock in bearing
  • Sunrise/sunset times ensure you never miss another beautiful dusk or dawn; set regional data and watch will inform you how much daylight remains
  • Snorkelers will appreciate the accurate depth readings to 10m (30 ft.)
  • Durable composite housing, aluminum bezel and solid elastomer strap are built to withstand rugged outdoor use
Anywho, just something to check out while driving,camping and sitting around. Has a storm alarm which reads the pressure changes. Just a toy but any comments would be great.

It's HUGE BTW,....

My wife and I both have Seiko watches. Hers is a standard self-winder, and mine is a Kinetic. It does a few things, but is not as complex (or large) as the one you now have.

I'd rather have an IPhone, it's even more exciting. And it talks to me too!

I'm retired, and can't even find my watch. My wife occasionally briefs me on such matters.

Once you get older, you'll have experienced the pleasure of having lost or destroyed a few expensive watches -- and thus turn to inexpensive Timex watches.

I had a Casio Altimeter Swiss-Army-Type watch that did everthing like your Suunto, Shane. I didn't last more than a couple years so I went back to semi-basics and now have an Accutron stainless steel watch that I use at work and an Immersion stainless steel diving watch for play.

Much to my husbands displeasure, I am an avid Timex Ironman fan.
It really takes a beating and I am not one to wear delicate jewelry that will get in my way.
Plain wedding band, seldom wear bracelets or necklaces and I rarely remove my practical white gold with diamond chip drop earrings.
My husband knows that a giant pair of diamond stud earrings would not even make me giddy.
If I can't exercise, garden or build a home while wearing it, it isn't much good to me.
I use a lot of the functions built into my watches.
As a home school mom, the timer has been a good friend.
I have timed many a run as well.
My current model is pink!

Now here is a thread for me. I work for Citizen watch Company and of course I wear a Citizen Eco Drive. Light (solar) powered and never needs a battery! When I was looking at a Bambi I wanted solar and found one with it! Solar and cell technology has come a long way! I also have sn iPhone but a watch is way better and looks better on your wrist. We even have atomic watches so your always on time. Thanks for the thread.
