  • When your lifestyle demands a watch that does more than tell time, Suunto steps up. The ultimate tactical watch, the Suunto Core looks deceivingly low-profile but boasts a multitude of tools. The Core gives accurate data gathering through its easy-to-navigate interface all while withstanding the harshest of conditions.


    • Altimeter and barometer with automatic switch
    • Compass
    • Storm alarm
    • Shows sunrise and sunset times
    • Depth meter
    • Altitude log and difference measurement
    • Semi-automatic compass calibration
    • Temperature
    • Language options include English, German, French and Spanish
    • Button-lock function
    • Watch, date and alarm functions. Allows multiple at one time
    • Comes with interchangeable accessory straps
    • Replaceable battery

    When you need to know your altitude, ascent and descent rates, the Sunnto Core comes complete with an altimeter that features a range of up to 29,500 ft. The difference measurement allows you to track your progress while the log stores your movements. Relive your trip at home through graphs of your altitudes changes. Measure the duration, average and speed of your ascents and descents.

    A detailed graph shows the last 24 hours of sea-level pressure with a recording interval of 30 minutes. For quick reference of weather conditions or to check upcoming conditions, consult the Core's weather-trend indicator. It also features a handy storm alarm, which notifies you of any sudden drops in air pressure.

    Automatic Altimeter/Barometer Switch
    This smart feature senses movement then switches between altimeter and barometer intuitively. Changes in elevation are recorded when you're climbing, and when you take a break, the changes in barometric pressure are recorded. This function is smart enough to detect that a drop in air pressure while you're asleep is actually a change in barometric pressure, not altitude.

    The cardinal or half-cardinal point and "North" are displayed with the built-in digital compass. There is a declination adjustment that provides the ability to correct between true north and magnetic north. If you're tracking a specific bearing, set your direction, and follow it across any terrain. Choose between a rotating bezel (for traditional use), or lock and follow a bearing with the one-touch function.

    Depth meter
    The depth meter, built for snorkeling, provides current depth and maximum depth reached during the dive. The device's maximum depth is 10 m, or 32.8 ft.

    Functions include time, dual time, date alarm, sports chronograph, timer and sunrise/sunset predicted times for more than 400 locations around the world.

  • 5 out of 5 Very beautiful and functioning watch really nice best watch I've had a long time although I'm not a rocket scientist the instructions on how to set the watch time and date those kind of things did not make any sense to me could not figure out how to set the time or date or anything else on the watch searched the Internet till I found the company that makes the watch got the 800-number called the company and the agent there got his watched just like mine preceded to guide me through the procedure and functions once he explained it to me it was easy I have to tell you as four of I'm concerned the instructions that come with the watch just stuck could not make heads or tails of them but as far as the watch goes it works great would buy it again. And I would like to thank TACTICALGEAR they are first-class really enjoyed doing business with them.

  • 3 out of 5 This watch is very hard to operate with its multiple menu screen. The backlight is not bright at all leaving you no other option but to use a flashlight. In a tactical situation this watch does not fit the bill for its price and hype. Casio's Triple Pathfinder is far superior and much easier to use. Price point is the same. Don't forget to lock your functions or your battery may die if a button is pushed inadvertently.
    Thank you for your review and providing such valuable information! We're sorry to hear the watch has been difficult to operate. If you would like to reach out to our Customer Relations team, we would be happy to see how we could help take care of this for you. - TacticalGear.com

  • 5 out of 5 What you lose in stealth by white is made up in great visibility reading this watch quickly day or night. I had the negative face version and was terrible to read it. The white band has been surprisingly non marking when used on fire overhaul, K9 training, hiking, running, biking- no stains on it. The silver face ring scratches easily. Functions are excellent and watch can be worn doing scuba and triathlon swimming. Rare in these multi function watches. Well worth the investment. Storm alarm is accurate.

  • Great performance for the price

  • 5 out of 5 1.) How you use the product Paragliding(log entries only/excellent for this purpose) Snowboarding Mountain Biking Hour Lunch count down timer Shallow Dives (Free and SCUBA) Hiking (EXCELLENT for this purpose) Dual Time (Family on the East Coast/I live in AK) 2)Things that are great about it SEE ABOVE. 3)Things that aren't so great about it I have owned a few triple sensor watches (Casio, High Suunto). The Suunto Core All Black Military is Superior. The one possible improvement would be to have 1' altimeter increments like the High Gear triple sensor watches I have owned. But this watch is superior for ease of use and perfect functionality for my activities.

  • 4 out of 5 i gave it 4 stars because, it consumes an enormous amount of energy. so u always have to feed it with premium batteries. couple of times it had an error like key lock that i couldn't unlock until i didn't take out the battery. many cheaper watches have a sunlight assist to energy usage of the watch.but in general, AWESOME WATCH. p.s. altimeter is to sensitive. even after driving in a car with A/C on, could spoil it's "zero" and it would give not accurate readings.

  • Love this watch

  • 4 out of 5 this watch has a lot of great features. however i've arrived at this watch as my "go to" for logging my training after using the suunto t6 for years and trying to use the 305 and 406 garmin forerunners. i'm a trail runner mtn biker so gps doesn't work in the bush. also foot pods inevitably break. so i use this watch for time, elevation gain and the occasional "which direction am i facing" check of the compass. the altimeter i find to be pretty good, although usually when i check it against topo or some other resource it seems to be a tad bit low - but since it uses barometric pressure i think that is acceptable and expected. the compass is good enough in a pinch and for general direction, but anyone really navigating knows to bring a real compass anyway. the features and screen are good. i leave mine in altitude mode and it shows me the time of day on top and the log run time on the bottom. i can change the bottom view to show me total vert gained or lost on the day too, which i do frequently. my bottom line: this watch simply works and isn't packed with so many features they get in each others way. simplicity. nice product again from suunto

  • 4 out of 5 This is a nice gadget and I enjoy using it but I have to admit there are some things that don't stand up to the brand name. Altimeter: Real life test. Drove to the top Haleakala (Maui, HI) and set the watch to the known elevation (3055 m). Drove down, to the ocean level only to discover that I'm at ~650 m asl. That's over 2100 ft! Come on Suunto!! Depth measures: On several occasions, while snorkeling, I've noticed that the maximum depth was not registered. I dove to approx. 5-6 meters and the maximum depth was still set at 0.5 m. Backlight: Some have already noted it but the blinking light when the watch is in the compass mode is really annoying. Would I buy it again? Probably. Did it match my expectations given my experience with other Suunto equipment? No, not really.

  • 5 out of 5 This watch is great. I have had the watch for a month. I am addicted to logging how much vert I climb and drop. I like this function when I am mt biking mostly. But I can't wait to use it skiing. It also has compass, sunrise/sunset, storm alarm, barometer, etc. Just yesterday I did the crest mountain bike ride starting from Guardsman and ended up at MIll D in Big Cottonwood Canyon. 822ft of climbing overall for the ride, and 3200ft down! I'll take it.!

  • 4 out of 5 I have enjoyed using SUUNTO wristop computers for years. I really like the design and low profile of the CORE watches. I am frustrated, that SUUNTO decided to leave out a heart rate monitor function on this watch. For a guy who likes to have one watch for most of my lifestyle I don't see giving up my METRON until the lack of a heart rate monitor has been corrected.

  • Great watch, but don't get the orange band

  • 4 out of 5 For summer or moderate weather activities, wristwatch altimeters are great. But for winter or cold weather, clothing layers and gloves make it difficult to access the watch- especially with an ice tool leash. For winter or cold weather I use an external clip-on altimeter like the High Gear ATF8 (lightest, most functional I've found). I used the Suunto Core (Organge/black) for two Himalayan expeditions in 2008, and the functionality was great, battery life was good, and the black face version was the best for viewing the display on bright days and in snow - especially when wearing eye wear. Also, the buttons do not involuntarily depress against the back of your hand when climbing- a big issue with some other models. However, after 50 days or so, the orange band began to seriously discolor, so I recommended getting the black band version. Also, the threads on the battery cover have now stripped, and I had to send it in. Luckily, Suunto has a strong return policy- at least for a year. Confident 4 stars.

About Suunto

Suunto collage As a passionate outdoorsman, Tuomas Vohlonen only had one issue with orienteering—the inaccuracy surrounding the dry compass. Putting his engineer background to use, Vohlonen discovered a method to steadying the needle, which ensured more accurate readings. By the 1950s, Suunto was manufacturing compasses for land and sea use, but it wasn't for another 10 years that the first diving compass was produced. The company's really started to grow after the production of the SME dive computer. Immediately realizing the potential, it combined computers and compasses in its wristwatches. Today Suunto produces specialized instruments for training, diving, mountaineering, hiking, skiing, sailing and golfing.
