Hey everyone, been following CrossFit for about two months now (just got two t-shirts to support the program and signed up for the newsletter! i love this stuff) and I'm looking at buying a new Suunto watch.

Im just curious what kind you all have, and any pros/cons you think they have.

A little info about my activities. Mostly do CrossFit these days, with a few 3-4 mile runs (used to run XC and Track, 10+ miles, etc.), I hike, and I'm also deploying to Iraq in about a month and a half.

I was planning on getting the Suunto Advizor

any thoughts?

Ive had the Advisor for about 5 years with no problems. Its a great watch and Suunto has great customer service (they sent me a brand new one last year when the warranty had already been up for 2 years). The only drawback is its a little bulky. Make sure you get some extra batteries (2032s I believe) to take with. The same one fits the heart rate monitor and the watch. Stay safe....

Would have to agree the Advisor is the way to go. I am in Iraq right now and have beat mine to [color=ff0000][/color][color=ff0000][/color][color=ff0000][/color][color=ff0000][/color] and it just keeps going. The interval timer is straight up the street, and the HRM woorks with most of the gym equipment scattered about the sand here. I got mine at the PX and saved a bundle (75 bucks)

Good luck
Keith
