it is a good looking watch, and the heart rate belt is very comfortable.

I am not impressed with the features of this watch at all. It calculates my BMI without asking for my height, and tells me I am overweight. How on earth can it work that out without taking my height into account. I think that is a huge flaw in the product. I am in no way overweight, and it upsets me every time I have to read that.
I can also not set the watch to operate at optimum heart rate, nor to operate in fat burning zone.
I payed a LOT of money for this product, and I am highly disappointed in it, sorry to say. I will not be recommending anybody to buy this watch.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Fits well, looks good, lightweight, nice big numbers, and heart rate monitor worked well for me. But it scratches very easily and didn't take long to look beat-up. The worst part of my experience was that almost every time I bent my wrist close to 90 degrees (biking, push-ups, anytime I planted my hand on the ground or against any surface) a button would get pressed which screwed up whatever display I was trying to use. The watch locks, but the button which unlocks it gets pressed during the actions described above. And despite being water-resistant, pressing a button while the watch is in contact with water causes malfunction (see manual Section 17 Care & Maintenance). That happened to me... but incidental button-pressing is almost inevitable. Now the watch keeps shutting down, and I have to restart and reset date, time, language, etc. Very disappointing.
No, I do not recommend this product.

As much as I love Suunto and their "claim to fame" this M4 is basically useless. This watch scratches VERY easy and will scratch on anything that touches it.
Thats not the worst part. Worst thing is the action buttons are on you're wrist side. Sure, you can lock it but if your wrist is in a bent position for more than a few seconds it unlocks, such as a bike or weights etc. Really a POOR design. No casing around the buttons neither.
Very disappointed. It's now a junk watch I wear to work, becuase I don't care what happens to it.
Fit's well. Very light, only positive thing I can say.
Wouldn't recommend.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I like the look of this product but it scratches EXTREMELY easily. when i say extremely i mean as in wear it around the house, day to day activities, and it WILL scratch very very quickly. i bought one of these (pink and black) watches in store on a friday, only wore it saturday and after maybe 4 or 5 hours with it on it had all these little scratches as well as a few quite deep scratches. I had it sent back to suunto, don't know what they will do about it yet though......
over all i say the watch had olright features, but it doesn't suit my needs, as I would like to have it show my time on a larger scale, and have an interval timer (or just timer).
No, I do not recommend this product.

love the design, love the display, so easy to use, the guidance is excellent even for seasoned exercisers, love the fact it deducts BMR automatically so you don’t have to faff around after, love everything about it, BUT, don’t like the way it doesn’t store the last 7 days unless you buy a movescount stick, and i don’t like the price of the movescount stick, its too much, so apart from the fact i can only view the last workout info it is a near perfect product. Suunto - you could always send me one so i could actually change this review to perfect?? cheeky but worth a try hey!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love my Suunto. I just hate how it looses my Heart rate at times. I love the motivation like it tells me that I am having a great week. I also like how it tells me when to have a rest day and when I need to go very hard. It also auto updates so my max heart rate was 185 now it is 195 and it did this all by itself. Pretty amazing.
Yes, I recommend this product.

My husband bought me the M4 as an Christmas present due to a health issue I have related to certain food and exercising. I was dreading what he would choose and how masculine the watch would look. To my surprise, the watch was quite sleek and the belt was comfortable. Best of all, the watch was PINK! Wouldn't mind a purple one (my favourite colour) but Pink is pretty close. The watch is easy to use and is giving me further motivation to increase my fitness level whilst giving me (and him) peace of mind.
Yes, I recommend this product.
