Suunto Core Watch Review

Suunto watch By Jeremy Linares

If that Timex isn’t cutting it anymore and you want to step your game up, the Suunto Core does everything but tie your shoes for you. The all black model that I purchased is the perfect blend of tactical and practical. Made in Finland, this is much more than your standard digital timepiece. The watch features an altimeter, barometer and digital compass which means it’ll tell you the elevation, air pressure and you should be able to figure that last one out for yourself. My favorite function of this watch is the storm alert, where it judges changes in air pressure over a period of time and alerts you that it’s about to get nasty out. I’ve found all of these functions have been extremely accurate to their analog counterparts. I like to think that if I was dropped in the middle of the backcountry, this watch would be the key to safely making my way to civilization.
