There’s nothing like it – being out in nature, doing the sport you love. Constantly searching for the perfect trail, training for your next big event, and enjoying every moment of it. It’s what you live for – it’s what you were built for.
Whether you’re training for competition or personal achievement, you need a watch that you can rely on. With the new Suunto Quest you can personalize and download your training programs, as well as monitor your heart rate, speed, distance, running cadence, and laps in real time.
Suunto Quest is fully compatible with Movescount.com, where you can customize your Quest display to see just the information you want, as well as share and analyze your training results.
All crafted in a distinctly rugged design that you can wear every day, ensuring your life in the outdoors will always be on track.
Suunto Quest will be available in fall 2011.

I like it ...the HR monitor, pedometer, lapping functions will come in real handy when training. Plus it has the good looks of the Core :)

Still trying to figure this one out. I have the T6d - wondering if it's just a more rugged version of it maybe?
The bummer with the watch is no altitude, no EPOC, no TE! So, not even close to your T6d. Really just a rebranded M5. Quite disappointing:(. The T6 line is starting to show its age. Revolutionary when introduced but no more.

I remain hopeful -we do not quite know what this watch will do functionality wise; therefore, I reserve judgment. Besides, why would Suunto release a product that is going to be inferior to its current line-up. It seems contrary to their practice up to this point ...

I wouldn't say inferior, just more focused. Believe it or not, not everyone WANTS all of the features. I ask someone who works out about EPOC and they just look at me. Most people who are using a HRM just want to get to their target zone, stay in it throughout their workout and cool down in a smart way. Honestly, the M4 is the coolest watch that I have seen as it because it says, " Hey, get off the couch and go workout!" (or something to that extent).

Suunto's Facebook response said the Quest does not have altitude. It will do cadence with the footpod as well as measure distance. It also connects wirelessly to Movescount and permits downloading of planned workouts. All nice features but it is not a T6 replacement. Hopefully one of those is in testing!

I have been using my Suunto Quest for about a week now and have had a bit of time this weekend to throw together a review on my blog. Be warned, it is about 4000 words long so you might want to skip to the end summary!

You can find the full Suunto Quest review here: Suunto Quest Review

It is very much a running and multi sport watch instead as opposed to an extreme sport watch as it is lacking altitude. However it squares up pretty well as a running watch as there are some seriously good Heart Rate training features on the watch and the online Moves Count training portal is one of the most advanced that I have seen to date.

Any questions then shout me either here or on my blog.

Great minds, or something: I just put my review of the Quest (after having tested/used it for a few months, in part against an M5, and having used a t6c/d as my personal training tool for years) online today. http://www.zhangschmidt.com/2011/10/a-suunto-quest-in-the-cloud/

ame here: if you have any questions, I'll gladly answer here or on my blog. I must say, some of the thoughts on this forum were rather helpful to keep in mind already. Yes, there is no altitude; yes, it does not necessarily replace a t6 - but also yes, the Quest is a different beast with some very nice touches ;)
