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.
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.
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.
Suunto Core is available in a range of styles and materials.
Don’t get stuck in the dark
Use your Suunto Core to know when it’s time to set up camp or keep moving forward. From over 400 locations stored in your Suunto Core, select the one closest to you, and get useful data about sunrise and sunset times in moments.
Avoid harsh weather
Stay one step ahead of Mother Nature – use the barometer function on your Suunto Core to help forecast weather changes on your next overnight trip. In the evening, set your Suunto Core to barometer mode and in the morning, you can check the pressure trend and pressure graph to see what kind of weather is in store.
Find the ideal pace on your next ascent
Make every step a calculated one – use your Suunto Core to carefully pace yourself on your way to the top. Simply find a reference point and set the altitude in your Suunto Core, then start the altitude difference measurer and begin your climb! At any point during your ascent, a quick glance at your Suunto Core will let you know how far you are from the summit.
Where do I find the correct declination for my area so I can set my Wristop Computer?
Local declination, either E or W, is usually marked on maps with one-degree or half-degree accuracy.
Is one unit more durable than another (metal case vs. plastic)?
The mineral crystal face of the units with metal case is more scratch proof than the plastic face. Technically all units are equally durable.
Why does the display get slow in cold temperatures?
The liquid crystal material of the LCD solidifies in cold temperature. This is typical for all LCD displays.
Do you have a Suunto watch that gives you the different sea tides with a barometer?
At the moment we do not have a product designed to measure tidewater and the only way to do this would be to measure the altitude change of the sea level. This can be done with most our products as they have both altimeter and barometer. Our product development is continuously working on new projects and you can follow-up on any new products at www.suunto.com under Products -> New products.
Do you have a product which would be suitable for paragliding?
Suunto Wristop Computers are intended for recreational use and outdoor activities but should not be used to acquire measurements when, for example, paragliding. Unfortunately we do not have any wristops aimed for paragliding at the moment.
Can the rotating compass ring be purchased as a replacement?
Unfortunately the bezel is not sold as an accessory and to have it replaced you need to send your wristop to service. If your warranty is valid, please take your watch to the retailer from where you bought it. If this is not possible you can also contact the importer of Suunto products in your country for more information about how to send the watch to service. You can locate importers at www.suunto.com/dealer. In the Dealer Locator, choose your country and the type of product in question. Please note that whether the watch can be repaired under warranty is always determined at our service once we have seen the watch.
Is it normal that my Suunto wristop face condensates?
The watches are always thoroughly tested at the factory in order to make sure that they are waterproof before release. There is always a small amount of air inside the watch which might be seen as condensation in rapid temperature changes from warm to cold.
