Suunto Core Watches - Essential outdoor functions in a light plastic case, elastomer strap.
Suunto Core Watches - Essential outdoor functions in a light plastic case, elastomer strap.The award-winning Suunto Core gathers a range of data to help you navigate your way through the wilder parts of the world. The altimeter features a range up to 9000m (29 500 ft). It is ideally suited for all activities where knowing your altitude and ascent and descent rates is essential. The Core altimeter sports an altitude difference measurement that allows you to track your progress in terms of altitude climbed. The log recorder stores all your movements in altitude between the start and stop times, so you can re-live your trip at home - view graphs of changes in altitude during your treks, find out how much you climbed, the duration of ascents and descents, average ascent and descent speed and more.Suunto Core displays the current sea level pressure as a detailed graph, showing recording of the last 24 hours with a recording interval of 30 minutes. The weather trend indicator is a useful feature providing quick reference to check upcoming weather conditions. The storm alarm notifies you of a sudden drop in air pressure, which may be related to worsening weather conditions.Suunto Core sports an Automatic Alti/Baro switch, a smart feature that senses your movement or lack thereof, switching between altimeter and barometer accordingly. When you're climbing, it records changes in elevation. And when you stop to rest, it records changes in barometric pressure. A drop in air pressure while you're sleeping under the stars will be recorded for what it really is: a change in barometric pressure, not altitude.The digital compass displays the cardinal or half-cardinal point and the North. The declination adjustment function allows you to correct the difference between the true North and magnetic North. You can also set it to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a chosen direction in the terrain. The compass features a rotating bezel for traditional use (most variants), or a one-touch function that allows you to sight lock and follow a bearing. Intended for snorkeling, the Suunto Core depth meter provides information on current depth and the maximum depth.

Fairly good product, price point ehh.
For the watch itself, I have not many complaints.
- Durable, I don't have to worry about being hard on it. Can smash against rocks, have in sand.
- Water proof, sand proof, solid watch
- Battery doesn't last as longs advertised (lasted about 5-6mo)
- Overpised. 219+ for a watch with a clock, barometer, and compass? Ehhh..
Do I like the watch? Absolutely. Its a solid watch.
Would I buy it again? No. I would pick up one of the ambits or a higher end watch from Suunto, on sale.

This watch has proven itself many times over, and once you understand the functionality of the buttons, is easy to navigate and use. The watch has definitely drawn attention from others while on my wrist.
Must have got a bad one
I was very excited to get this watch, I read a lot of reviews about how happy customers were with the core all black military watch. It looked and felt perfect but unfortunately as soon as it got wet it died. I made sure I tighted the back as soon as I got it but it still failed. It was great for the one day I had it.
This SUUNTO CORE watch goes far above expectations
This watch by far does more than than many other watches. The barometer functions excellent. The compass is very accurate. The whole watch does just about everything I wanted in a watch and I fully recommend it
A great, simple, light watch!
I have 3 other Sunnto watches from semi-expensive Ambit and Ambit 2, to ultra-cheap Quest that my wife uses and loves (shame that it is out of production because she wants only that watch and I can't even get replacement bands for it). But, this Core watch is like her Quest for me in that it is light and simple and has a nicely visible layout for physical activity and every day wear. I do wish it had adjustable brightness and contrast though.
I like the features!
This was a gift from my son. I like the time/altimeter/compass features as I travel for a living. It helps in fun but also can come in handy when canoeing and hiking. Seems versatile and well made!
Very nice product..
This is my second Suunto I still have my original Vector, this was given to me as a gift, and am now trying to find out how it works and it's features.
Rugged, Great Customer Support
I'm a Flight Paramedic that has relied on the Suunto Core for over 7 years and it's just a good today as it was years ago...
Excellent product, missing a small point
Wish it to be for every person i know
Nice gift for someone who you really feel he deserves to wear a professional watch.
But im from the middle east , and there is no middle east area or regions so i am missing the sunrise and several other stuff available in suunto core
I dont know if it can be added.
Great watch. Great features.
In the age of smart watches, it's a pleasure to have a functional, gorgeous, partner in a watch that's happy day to day or marching through the forest trails. I received the watch as a gift from my well researched wish list. It feels great on the wrist and was easy to set up. So far so good. Love my Suunto Core all black.
