The Suunto Core Aluminium Leather Watch is a lightweight and extra smart version of the great all-round outdoors Suunto Core ABC watch.
The body of the Suunto Core Aluminium is machined from solid alloy and, combined with the easily adjustable, comfortable thick leather strap, it has a look combining form and function. You can wear this watch at 18,000 feet, in the pub or in the boardroom and it will never look less than impressive.
The Suunto Core Watch range has an impressive array of features from Altimeter, Barometer and Compass (ABC) to depth meter, sunrise/sunset times and a range of alarms.
The Storm Alarm can sense and warn you of an approaching squall and is one of several intelligent features that can help you consistently make good decisions when you need them most.
The Core Aluminium Leather has a large 50-mm face giving you a great view of your key data.
The watch features stunning levels of accuracy; Altimeter accurate to 1 metre, Barometer resolution 1 mbar and semi-automatic compass calibration. The watch is waterproof to 30 metres with the underwater-use buttons useable down to 10 metres.
The Sunto Core pressure gauge operates in four distinct modes, including an automatic setting that senses your movement or lack of it, switching between altimeter and barometer accordingly. The compass features a rotating bezel for traditional use and a one-touch function that allows you to sight, lock on to and follow a bearing.
Daily functions include dual time, date, alarm, sports chronograph and predicted times for sunrise and sunset.
Accurate to 30,000 feet, the Suunto Core altimeter is a valuable tool for mountaineering, back-country skiing and wilderness travel. It displays your current elevation, shows how far you’ve climbed or descended and records your entire session for later analysis.
How high is this bluff is answered with a simple turn of the wrist.
If you’re on or near an obvious feature (like a ridge, trail or creek), you can use your current elevation to find your position on a topographic map. If you plan on climbing a slope to a certain elevation and then traversing, an altimeter is an ideal tool for staying on course.
You can also use elevation to gauge your progress. The Suunto Core Aluminium Leather displays elevation gained and lost between a given point (e.g. a trailhead or belay station) and your current position.
Simplifying altimeter use, the Suunto Core includes a unique start-from-zero function that eliminates the need for entering a reference altitude. With a single push of a button, the altimeter will begin tracking your ascent and descent.
A veritable weather station on your wrist, the Suunto Core barometer measures and records air pressure to help you predict changing conditions from sunny skies to hair-raising electrical storms.
Soft shell or rain shell? Onward and upwards or high-tail it back to the car? And, sometimes more importantly, are the fish biting? These and other questions can be answered with a quick look at the Suunto Core barometer.
In general, low pressure brings inclement weather while high pressure brings stability and clear skies. If you’ve arrived at camp and notice the pressure starting to plunge, it’s probably a good idea to secure the tent and crawl in. Likewise, if you’re on a climb, it would be prudent to find shelter or retreat.
When you’re hiking in a canyon or dense forest without views of the horizon, a barometer can 'see' into the distance, keeping you posted of changes in air pressure that can lead to bad weather. Even at home, the Suunto Core Aluminium Leather barometer looks beyond office walls, skyscrapers and nearby hills to help you plan ahead for upcoming adventures.
An altimeter measures air pressure to determine altitude while a barometer measures air pressure to determine barometric pressure. If you leave your watch in altimeter mode while resting at camp, an incoming low-pressure front will read as a gain in altitude. Thus, it’s important to choose the right mode for your activity: altimeter for climbing and barometer for hanging out at camp. The Suunto Core makes it easy to manually choose the proper mode for your activity.
The Suunto Core also features an automatic Altimeter/Barometer mode that senses movement or the lack of it, 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.
What’s the forecast? Check your wrist. The Weather-Trend Indicator shows the barometric history for the last 3 and 6 hours, helping you predict the weather with amazing accuracy. What’s more, it’s not a regional forecast posted earlier in the day but rather the most current information about the weather directly overhead, whether you’re hiking, biking or enjoying a cup of tea with the morning paper.
Setting up your tent in a downpour. Heading farther from shore as a storm gathers. Starting up a climb with thundstorms in the distance. The Suunto Storm Alarm can help you avoid these situations. Activated by a rapid drop in air pressure over a 3-hour period, the Storm Alarm sounds and flashes, letting you know that unpleasant weather is fast approaching.
The digital compass on the Suunto Core is a great tool for keeping track of direction while skiing, hiking or exploring a new city. You can set and follow a bearing with a traditional rotating bezel or simply point the top of the watch toward your intended destination and lock it in.
Maximise your daylight hours and never miss another alpine glow photo opportunity with daily sunrise and sunset times on the Suunto Core. Just set your continent, region and city and you’ll always know how much daylight remains for safe climbing, skiing, off-trail travel and photography.
Head into the surf and the Suunto Core shifts from air to water pressure, providing water resistance to 30 metres (100 ft) and accurate depth readings and underwater-useable buttons to 10 metres (30 ft).
Dimensions: Width 50 mm, depth 14 mm; weight 70 g.
The Suunto Core communicates in English, French, German and Spanish.
