My First Outdoor watch - Suunto Quest

Here is my first outdoor watch suuntoQuest Running Pack(come with mini foot pod and Heart Rate Belt). Bought it last week from Runnings Lab at Novena. (Citibank card entitle to 10% discount)  Thanks to my friend who registered for the NorthFace 100 and that make her entitle for 20% discount and she is willing to share the 20% with me.
At first I was planning to buy polar either FT60 or RS300X. But once I saw the shoe pod and the GPS device, I asked the sales girl is there any other choice. The foot pod is quite big and that scared me off. My friend recommended me to get the suunto watch which is quite reliable and the sales girl introduce us this Suunto Quest. She is having the same watch as well and is so generous to lent me her watch to try on my wrist. After compare the shoe pod (which is ~4x smaller) I decided to get this stylist big watch (the watch size slightly bigger than polar but both the watch is very light).
I am still trying to get use to the watch and learn the functions in. Read about how I calibrate my foot pod here.
Have no issue get connected with my foot pod for the first time but having issues with my HeartRate belt until I google and realized there is a missing steps. Here is the video that may help. Its really simple and easy to use.
