I'm so glad Massdrop's heading clearly states this is a quartz watch. I really couldn't tell from the dial. I was expecting it to be a hand wound watch due to it's vintage, classical case design.
"Plus, the Suunto Core is 30-meter water resistant so you don’t have to worry about getting it wet." LOL, yes you do.
I don't understand why anybody would want an ABC only watch these days? You can get so much more out of your watch if it's an ABC + GPS. I know they are more expensive, but it's so much more useful...

Power requirement. I have a 10 year old Suunto Core, still going strong. It runs on CR2032 batteries (from memory).
I think Suunto also have a GPS watch, but it's more gear for runners who can charge it every night, than hikers and camper who might not have power.
Does this watch have a weekday alarm? As in, won't go off on weekends?
This is only $10 cheaper than Amazon. starting to notice this more and more that the deals on massdrop are not as good as they once were.
Be careful. Prior sales on eBay indicate this watch, brand new, has sold for much less, albeit from (reputable) Asian sellers.
Personally, I'm not afraid to buy quartz watches like these on the used market

why?

They're built to take a beating, unlike a mechanical watch which may have all sorts of issues. If you can find considerable savings used....... that may be the route to go down on.

TheIzzardKing and Crim91 I’m not sure you all are aware, but those links that you are posting to troll Massdrop about prices, are failing to show the prices that you are posting in here

Also not everyone has amazon prime. So it’s pointless to the majority. Your points fall on troll ears and fail as a troll and should be ashamed #satire

That makes sense lol. I just finished 5 years in the Corps.

Good luck with things.
Got my Core today from the last drop and I couldn't be any happier!  I invested in a jaysandkays after market fixed lug adaptor set which included a ballistic nylon 5 PVD ring zulu strap. The kit came with 2 screwdrivers and Loctite for the screws. Watching their youtube video on installation made everything so seamless. I got a little careless with the Loctite applications to the screws, but it cleaned up nicely and the mod looks extremely factory.

Comfort wise, I did try it on with the default strap straight out of the box, and as users have noted in the past, it is very comfortable.  I however really was looking forward to modding a strap that looked and hopefully felt better. After all the modding, the comfort is "different" than the default, but still perfect for my size wrists and I am forgetting that I even have it on as I type this. One advantage of nato/zulu straps is the buckle is no longer on the bottom of your wrist, so it wont interfere with your desk or keyboard while typing!

I have zero issues with the negative display brightness because I am biased to the "tacticool" military factor and that being one of the main reasons I wanted it (also swapping out strap for nato/zulu style).  After reading problems regarding stuck buttons or non-responsive intermittency. I have learned there is an easy fix for this sort of issue, dealing with debris and/or the metal contact lever under the button getting bent low over time.  There are videos on youtube for easy disassembly to restore the springiness. Also seems the bezel can easily be replaced for roughly 75$ via Suunto customer service if the scuffing over the years really gets to you. I am expecting to wear and appreciate this watch for many years to come, and really would like to thank Massdrop for this deal!

Would you mind link the straps? Thank you

I bought the all black version in May, which I think was the last drop for it. I loved the watch and didn't have a problem reading the display. I took it on a 4 day canoe trip a month after getting the watch. The two top buttons and the mode button stopped working so I could not change the display or utilize any of the functions. I returned the watch to a local dealer who has sent it in for repair/replacement but have yet to hear back. This is apparently a known problem and I will post the response I get from Suunto.

Any update on this situation?

My son wears a 10 year old suunto core, and does swimming lessons in it every week. No problems. He doesnt exceed the 30m depth limit. For the record the watch is/was mine. I move on to a Casio Protrek with solar power. Solar power and not replacing batteries was the significant improvement. The Casio also lacks the storm alert which is an excellent feature as long as you don't ride a lift everyday as that rapid pressure change sets it off. I should say changing batteries is not too frequent but it is noticeable. Its also easy to source replacements and do it yourself with a coin for leverage.

If you want the ABC functionality I think this is a pretty cool watch. With the different bands it can be quite fashionable like swatches once were.
