An ActiveWatchers’ Thumbs up for 127 Hours

November 16, 2010

The ActiveWatches blog isn’t usually the place for movie reviews.  But after seeing “127 Hours” this past Saturday night, the ActiveWatcher couldn’t help himself.  The movie is based on the true story about mountain climber Aaron Ralston (played by James Franco) and his personal journey of being trapped under a boulder for five days in Robbers Roost, Utah.  The movie is sure to delight ActiveWatches‘ customer base.  With the theme of the movie focused on personal triumph and unimaginable sacrifice, it’s sure to make you feel guilty for complaining about your everyday life.

But on a note more relevant to the ActiveWatches blog, the movie also co-stars another famous actor besides James France: the Suunto Vector.  You see the watch so darn much in the movie — for obvious reasons  — that the watch should be identified in the opening and closing credits.  But I digress.  The movie only proves the awesome functionality and power of this watch.  From withstanding the force of a boulder to giving you the altitude and temperature, it’s no wonder why it got some face time in the movie (for the record, I don’t know if it the Vector was actually worn by Ralston).

So go watch the movie and then go to ActiveWatches.com to get a much more in-depth view of the Vector and other Suunto watches.
