You need you use a special tool, or two screwdrivers.

When using two screwdrivers, place either screwdriver on the opposite side of the pin. Lock the pin in place with one of the screwdrivers, to keep it from rotating, while you unscrew it from the opposite side with the other screwdriver.

Nope. There are very few options to customize the watch (mostly sound notifications).
The only way would be to create a custom firmware :)

Cca 2 years is a good estimate. My watch is 4 years old and i changed the battery once - now it is close to finished (no battery symbol but turning on light causes display going blank or even reset of the watch).

My alu light watch came with brown leather strap.
There is also a black leather strap available (has visible color maps) - all the rest is rubber (elastomer).
Checking current product range - it seems all core watches are sold with elastomer straps (but you can buy a brown/black leather ones).

I believe this is caused by weak battery. My watch (battery is cca 2years old) started first turning off the display (after turning on backlight). Yesterday it reset the time.
Change the battery and the light will work as it should again.

You must have gotten a piece which was produced earlier. My watch required a single battery change just once in last 3.5years (i might be closing the end of battery life now - no battery symbol but when light is on, display goes almost completely weak).

Question

My Suunto Core All Black resets as if the battery has been pulled at random intervals.

I purchased my Core nearly a year ago; I've had absolutely no trouble with it until recently. After I replaced the battery, it functioned properly for some time. However, now it resets every so often, ranging from 5 seconds to a couple days. It resets in the same way that it would if I removed and replaced the battery. Sometimes it resets unprovoked, and other times resets on the push of any button. Upon reset only the date is retained. I've tried multiple batteries with no luck.

To add an app, please go to movescount.com. Choose plan&create and then app zone. Look for the apps you are interested in and click on the 'save' button. The app will now be saved in your library.

When the app is saved in your library, all you need to do is add it into the sport mode you want to use it in, by following these steps :
- log into movescount.com
- go to gear => Suunto Ambit2
- choose the sport mode and click 'edit'
- add a display and change the content by clicking the small blue icon
- go to the tab 'MyApps' and choose app you wish to use
- press ok and then save

After synchronization the app will be visible in the watch during exercise

I believe all Core models have compatible strap attachments.
Some straps use single axle (i.e. light+standard elastomer), other straps (i.e. leather or color/flat elastomer) use 2 axles.
If you check the picture details with the given strap you will see the difference.
My alu light watch was fine with both types of straps (elastomer light, flat elastomer black and brown leather).
Also make sure the color of the metal arms holding both axles together matches the watch body - including the finish (glossy vs matte).
PS: Elastomer light rubber ring was the first thing that snapped - after couple of months, buy replacement while it is still produced.

This review may not be the most helpful, but the brighter it is in the environment, the brighter my watch readings get. It's hard to read a little during sunset time, but if the sun is shining completely on it as well as a light of some kind, you will not be able to set the back light if your turn it on at that time. I am not sure why you are having trouble reading it. Another reason the watch is dim, is because it in a way is a military watch, designed to have a dimmed background so you wont be made. Hope this helps, sorry if it doesn't make you happier.
