I have a Suunto Ambit3 Peak. I like it.

Pretty much any of them:

  1.  battery life
  2. thickness/size of the watch
  3. usability
  4. functions you want 

I thought the Suunto Ambit3 was the best choice considering those factors for that when I got it (some blowout sale somewhere online, so no where near the full price).  For this watch though I do note that a lot of people have had issues with the band.  A $$$ watch and you could lose it quick if the band fails... I just wish there were after market straps for it (there aren't, I can't find any at least) so I could strap it OVER my coat.

If you're an AAC member you can get good deals on Suunto watches. I think I got an ambit3 for 60% off.
