    Elementum Terra

    All,

    I've been a fan of Suunto for a while now, but only just discovered this (now discontinued) model heavily discounted on the web. I love the features of the Core but have never been a fan of the plastic case and strap. The ET is the complete opposite. It's solid and substantial and the silicone strap is soft and very comfortable. The display is sharp and crystal clear.

    Over the July 4th weekend I had the opportunity to wear it on a puddle jumper to an island in Lake Erie. I sat right behind the pilot and could check the watch's altitude reading against the plane's altimeter and I was delighted to find that it tracked nearly perfectly up to the highest point of 2100 feet and then back down to the ground.

    This watch doesn't seem to get a lot of love on this forum. It might have something to do with the original price point of the watch, which was admittedly way too high.

    Curious who else has one of these and if you're enjoying it. Here is a shot of mine as we approached cruising altitude.

    In the era of pre smart watches and fitness objects, ET had always been one of my greatest desire. Price prevented me from buying. Now it’s very easy to find it at a good price, even from Suunto store itself.
    Great watch, nice catch.

    I had one for a few years. Its a very cool piece, but I found it not as friendly for a UI point of view (I want to say I had to fiddle with it a bit to reset some of the counters), and less useful than say, an Apple Watch or even the Tissot T-Touch that it replaced. But I can't say anything negative about the build of the watch itself...maybe it had a fairly short battery life.
