The Suunto Vector HR heart rate monitor/altimeter is an excellent tool for helping you reach and maintain your peak performance. Whether you are a mountaineer, a trail runner, an adventure racer or a backpacker, the Vector HR keeps you abreast of the situation.
Recognizing that it isn't just external conditions that impact your performance, the Vector HR monitors what's going on inside your body. By setting heart rate zone alarms, you can be notified when your heart rate is above or below intended ranges, so you can avoid pushing too hard or training too casually. Made from soft fabrics, the accompanying Suunto Comfort Belt has a low-profile fit that allows a full and comfortable range of motion. Thin length-adjustment buckles minimize friction and the front closing buckle is positioned conveniently. Unique traction strips keep the Comfort Belt securely in place so you don't suffer restriction from over-tightening. The Vector HR is also compatible with the Suunto Heart Rate Belt and Dual Comfort Belt (both sold separately).
The Vector HR's digital altimeter has a working range of up to 9,000 meters (29,500 ft), making it ideal for any activity where the need for knowing your altitude and rates of ascent and descent are essential. An altitude difference measurement allows you to track progress in terms of altitude climbed and an internal log recorder stores your movements for later review.
Displaying the current sea level pressure in a detailed graph, the Vector HR's barometer allows you to track the last 24 hours in recording intervals of 30 minutes. A weather trend indicator gives you a heads up about changing weather conditions and a storm alarm alters to sudden drops in air pressure that may indicate rapidly deteriorating conditions.
A digital compass with integrated declination adjustment allows you to correct for differences between true North and magnetic North and can be set to track a certain bearing. A rotating bezel allows for traditional use and a one-touch function enables you to sight lock and follow a bearing.
Other features found on the Vector HR include a sports watch with multiple functions, a countdown timer, a stopwatch and a digital thermometer. A user-replaceable battery is included and a low battery warning alerts you when a new battery is needed.
The Suunto Vector HR is water-resistant to 30 meters (100 ft).
