Great Watch, When Not Cold
The Vector is a great watch. I've had mine for about six years now. The only thing I've had to replace are the band and the battery. I've used the watch for navigation, skydiving, mountain climbing, and everyday usage. The compass is slightly difficult at first and requires calibration before every use, as do all digital compasses. That altimeter is very accurate, even when falling from 15,000 ft. The only two issues I have had is when extremely cold the battery loses power (as do all). Also the temperature gauge is in accurate due to the effect of body heat. Other than that the watch has served me well in the mountains, desert, and in the air. Worth every penny.

Good Time Piece with Great Function
**USCAV edit this out please.(The Vector is not a dual time piece as it is described here on your site.)**
So far, so good. Good feel, easy to read, light weight (as if it is not even there) and it is very easy to use. The one thing not really stressed upon purchase and/or is to do all of the calibration (ref. altitude/pressure/compass) and offset (declination) adjustments before initial use (and before any use when changing location other than your home area.) Calibration is easy after you go through the directions a time or two. The Barometer trend, altimeter alarm and log functions are great for weather anticipation and elivation/temperature monitoring. Compass works great for a quick bearing adjustments on the fly.
