A great everyday watch
January 15, 2001
I have worn this watch daily for a year and a half. It is not too big. When traveling the compass feature is usefull also in cities. Suunto makes the highest quality and best looking outdoor watches, no question about that. Also a great conversation piece and icebreaker...

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband. When the package arrived, I opened the box and was amazed at how truly stylish this watch is. It is a VERY APPEALING watch. However, I was rather dismayed that it didn't have a leather band. O only rated it 4 stars because I can't report anything about its function since it is a Christmas gift. However, if my husband doesn't want it- I DO!!!
Wow! Fantastic Watch for the outdoor enthusiast!

This watch has it all and does it all very well...large face, light weight, feature filled, intuitive controls and you can change your own battery! Highly recommend for daily wear, no matter where it takes you.
X-Lander Suunto Watch

I have really enjoyed the X-Lander watch. It was easy to use and with my sence of directions, the compass was a must have. It is durable and handy out in the woods.
Gorgeous Look & Snazzy Band

How to start? The leather band on the X-Lander is a wonderful touch of class - but I actually bumped into an even snazzier band on a 2005 model - according to a sales rep at REI - that has the leather band beat in both looks and durability. Keep an eye out for this one. Back to the watch - it's the same as the beloved Suunto vector but the Aluminum finish and the green tinted glass - bought one last night and have received numerous compliments since then. Features are top notch and the compass is easy to calibrate - I thought it would be tougher. The manual is very detailed but the overall watch menu system makes it easy to get around. The compass allows for the locking in of a bearing - very easy to configure - so you can try to hold a certain course. Very sturdy but very light - looks heavier but its not. Still playing with it - but loving it so far - can not go wrong - keep an eye out for the one with the other type of watch band - this band is slick.

I ordered mine via a catalog without seeing it and WOW! What a surprise. Very sturdy and elegant watch. The leather band is top comfort and durable. Looks very high-tech, everyone will notice it if you wear a short sleeve shirt. All the functions works great. Some are complex and might be confusing at the beginning, just don't loose your manual! The backlight is kind of weak and the watch is very thick, it might not be comfortable under a long sleave business shirt.
Great outdoor tool!

Terrible customer support. Bands wear out too quickly and Suunto is not supporting it now. I've had it about 4 yrs. and am on my third band. I really had a hard time finding this last one and Suunto refused to help. I will not buy from them again.

I have had my X Lander for two years now and I still only have one complaint.. I can't seem to find a new watchband for it.. I love the leather band but I have worn it out. The new replacement band is rubber and I have looked but not intrested. The distinct leather band with the fine stiching just ads something to the watch. I have had many complements as well as people who want me to take it off so they can get a better look.. All functions of the watch work very well from sea level to fifteen thousand feet I have never had any issues with the watch.

Easy to read in low light. Backlight works like a champ. Compass feature very easy to use and quite accurate, even in a vehicle. Mine has survived 7 months in Iraq thus far without a scratch. Only challenge is with the band: if you work out with it on, wash the band with soap and water or it starts to smell; also, my band is wearing out (tearing where I buckle it).
