    Initial Examination

    The X6HRT arrived in the white box characteristic to most all Suunto timepieces. Also inside was a manual, cards, other documentation, heart rate strap, and software. Additionally, Suunto included a wrist sizer, which is important since once the watch is sized down, it cannot be readjusted back up. This is because downsizing involves snipping off sections of rubber links that cannot be reattached.


    The watch itself is considerably lighter than it looks, but it is by no means flimsy. Made of titanium (hence the "t" appended to its name) casing, Suunto advertises the watch to be extremely durable and resistant to tough natural conditions. And as an added benefit, the construction is lightweight enough not to be bothersome during exercise. The watch face is encased in mineral crystal for scratch-resistence and the strap contains titanium links in the same style as the main watch housing.

    The high-end construction of the X6HRT is the main factor contributing to its price point difference over its little brother, the X6HRM. And it's a pretty big difference; the titanium casing upgrade will set you back 4 more c-notes than Suunto's stainless steel offering. Lets take a look at the surface differences in the X6HR line. Pictured below in order are the X6HR, X6HRM, and X6HRT:

    On the far left, it is apparent that the X6HR ($399 retail) features a non-metal casing and strap. But the X6HRM ($499 retail) and X6HRT ($999 retail) also share several differences. Besides titanium casing and a titanium elastometer band, the X6HRT also sports a brighter screen and a white dial compared to the X6HRM's purely elastometer band and stainless steel construction. Otherwise, the two watches are identical in terms of functionality.
