127 Hours and the Suunto Vector

The upcoming movie, 127 Hours, recreating the dramatic true events involving Aron Ralston, a mountain climber who amputated his own arm in order to free himself after being trapped by a boulder should be good. Ralston became trapped for five days (127 hours!) in the isolated canyon of Robbers Roost, Utah in 2003 after a boulder fell on his arm. Ralston amputated his own arm, scaled a 65-feet wall and hiked more than eight miles to find help.
The Suunto Vector plays a very important role in the dramatic movie--documenting every minute, second and hour of the whole ordeal. We can't wait to see the movie, which opens November 5th, 2010.

  1. Is there definite proof that Aron Ralston actually wore a Suunto Vector during his adventures or his ordeal in the canyon? Or was the Vector just the choice for the movie?
