    Some of those make a smartwatch look austere.

    More sooner than later I'm going to catch that Breitling!

    Gear Patrol strikes again. The Breitling Aerospace Evo is cool watch, I like the TC SuperQuartz and some reviews have it getting crazy levels of accuracy, like 0.1 seconds per month. I just find the dial too cluttered (like most Breitlings), and I don't like that the hour hand is not independently adjustable - which is a requisite on a HAQ, IMO.

    How many months battery life does that Suunto have?

    The Tissot may be as clever as heck but when it came down to it even my "buy a watch" nature couldn't pull the trigger. I suspect that I'd have no such problems with the Breitling though.

    I have to say, my Suunto Ambit 2 S is probably one of the best gifts I've received. Fantastic training watch. Incredibly accurate. And their 'Moves Count' website / log is great. Plus it's rechargable on your computer. So forget worrying about replacing batteries.

    Very cool - the fact that it measures everything from distance to average speed, top speed, verticle speed, heart rate, calories burned, pace, cadence, etc. etc. etc is beyond amazing.

    Love my 2013 Aerospace Avantage. Independent set hour hand is not really a necessity in this model.

    If you want a full analogue 3 hander HEQ with independent set hour hand, look no further to the JDM Citizen Chronomaster.

    The Aerospace is a terrific piece and highly recommended. Comfortable, light weight due to its all Ti construction, looks great, it can easily be dressed up or down, functional, what else could you possibly want out from a daily wear watch?

    Mine is incredibly accurate gaining a mere 0.01 secs per day or roughly +4 secs per year. Breitling rates it at -/+ 15 secs a year and the official COSC certification for superquartz is -/+ 25 secs per year.

    No question in my mind, the Aerospace is the best watch Breitling makes and no wonder is their best seller too.

    Sorry but to my eye G Shocks are very aesthetically challenged in despite of their toughness, practicality, etc, etc.

    I tried to live with one a few years ago but never gelled with the thing.

    Agreed. While the Tissot is at least 6-7 times cheaper than the Aerospace, I could never bring myself to drop $400-$500 for one. While my Aerospace Avantage was substantially more costly, the watch has been a real joy to wear and own and pretty much an eye opener as well. It is just a well rounded, complete package if you will.
