SOLD- Newer Suunto Core Watch. Paid $249 new, need to earn some money for Christmas- otherwise I wouldn't sell it- only used on 4 hiking trips- always stored when not hiking.
"The Suunto Core Altimeter Watch keeps an eye on approaching storms with an innovative motion-sensing barometric altimeter-and looks good doing it. The Core is Suunto's latest companion for the outdoor athlete seeking thin alpine air, with a slimmer profile than you'd expect from a wristtop computer. Along with the Storm Alarm, which switches from pressure-sensitive altimeter to barometer depending on your body movement, the Core advises you directionally with a digital compass, gives accurate temperature readings from -20 to 140 degrees, and measures underwater depth to 30 feet. The Core even provides all this information in English, French, Spanish, and German. Suunto managed to pack all of those features, plus regular timekeeping, chronograph, alarm functions and more into a variety of cases that, while technical in appearance, won't look out of place when you head downtown for the evening."
"Considered an essential piece of gear for backcountry endeavors, the Suunto Core multifunction watch provides advanced features for the vertically inclined. Altimeter, Barometer, Compass (ABC) wrist-top design delivers crucial data for gauging performance, direction and weather. Barometric altimeter is accurate to 30,000 ft. and displays current elevation and elevation gain/loss, and records entire session for later analysis. Unique start-from-zero function simplifies altimeter usage by eliminating need to enter a reference altitude; a single push of a button begins tracking your ascent or descent. Barometer function measures and records air pressure to help predict changing conditions; weather trend indicator shows history over the last 3 - 6 hrs. Automatic Alti/Baro mode senses movement, or lack thereof, and seamlessly switches between altimeter and barometer functions in order to provide accurate readings. Storm alarm feature activates when a rapid drop in air pressure is detected over a 3 hr. period; alarm sounds and flashes to indicate the possibility of bad weather. Digital compass monitors direction; set and follow a bearing using rotating bezel ring or point top of watch in direction of travel to lock in bearing. Sunrise/sunset times ensure you never miss another beautiful dusk or dawn; set regional data and the watch will inform you how much daylight remains. Hang the watch in your tent and keep an eye on the digital thermometer to see just how low the temperature goes. Snorkelers will appreciate the accurate depth readings to 10m (30 ft.). Durable composite housing, aluminum bezel and solid elastomer strap are built to withstand rugged outdoor use. Select 1 of 4 languages (English, German, French and Spanish) along with other personal preferences. Standard features include dual time, date, alarm, countdown timer, sports chronograph and backlight."
