      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.

      Automatic Alti/Baro switch
      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.

      Depth meter
      Intended for snorkeling, the Suunto Core depth meter provides information on current depth and the maximum depth reached during your snorkeling dive. The maximum depth of the device is 10m (32,8 ft).

      Watch functions include time, dual time, date, alarm, sports chronograph, countdown timer and predicted times for sunrise and sunset for over 400 locations worldwide.

    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.

    • 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, 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 (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.

    • 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.
