Suunto Observer Watch Band

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on May 21, 2012
The Suunto Observer is a great watch. However, I was very surprised & disappointed in the short life of its wrist band. This is my 4th watch band so far, and I was forced to buy the SS & Elastomer band for the last two replacements. Supposedly, the less expensive $19.00 black Elastomer band was discontinued, so next up is the SS & Elastomer @ $38.00, ouch! Optics Planet is definitely the best place for me to order these bands. They had the Black Elastomer bands, and by ordering 2 bands shipping was free, and they shipped them out with no delay. If you want a shock, or are constipated, check the Observer wrist band prices at Suuntos website: http://www.suunto.com/us/en/products/Outdoor-Accessories/observer-sr-strap-kit If you want to own the Observer, youre stuck with buying proprietary bands from Suunto. I suppose a universal band could be installed, but it would look pretty crappy.
Pros: Rubber (non-conductive), streamline appearance.
Cons: High price, band is proprietary, short life....
Would recommend: Yes

Good option vs the deployment clasp band

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NC Written on March 18, 2011
This is a good option versus the expensive titanium deployment clasp band that came on my Suunto Explorer. I liked the deployment clasp style band for ease of getting the watch on and off, but it cracked with little stress after a year and is nearly $100 or more to replace.

This band seems durable, but I wish it had a one sided buckle. It has a 2 sided buckle so you have to really fold the band to get it through the other side of the buckle. I fear over time this will cause additional stress to the band and early failure. At least it is a $20 band versus a $100 band.

It feels sturdy and lays flat when on your wrist. The stylish holes on the band should also allow some air flow when involved in active tasks.

Nice band for the money! So far, so good!
Pros: Less Expensive, feels sturdy, breathable holes in band
Cons: Might be too stiff over time and crack like original band did....
Would recommend: Yes
