Suunto S6 is a new wristop computer especially designed for alpine skiing and snowboarding. It offers a unique combination of three functional dimensions: it gives the user essential information instantly when riding on and off pistes. A level of deeper understanding comes with the PC interface. It also opens a door to an Internet community where skiers and snowboarders worldwide can share and acquire information with and from other users of Suunto┬┤s latest wristop computer generation.

I have one.

It's amazing to see how much time you actually spend standing still or riding the lift versus decending the mountain.

To measure your average speed you need to hit a button, go, and then hit a button when you are done.

Not sure how accurate that will be if it takes you 5-10 seconds to get your gloves off before and after the run.

It's mostly a toy for me as I hate wearing my nice watch to ski and I hate carrying a crappy watch in my pocket so it solves my problem.

I bought this baby for riding my bicycle, but it does double duty for skiing and snowboarding as well. I haven't skied with it yet, but I will Saturday.
