The new Suunto Core watch, available from Facewest, represents a new safety essential for adventure sports enthusiasts as it allows them to track their altitude and bearings and also gives advance warning of oncoming storms.
Adventure sports are becoming increasingly popular -- more people than ever are climbing, mountain biking, ski touring and mountaineering. That translates to a growing number of people braving wilderness areas and requiring accurate navigation and weather information.
With this in mind, Suunto produce a range of 'wrist top computers' that have essential outdoor navigation features such as altimeter, barometer and compass. Suunto call this 'ABC functionality' and these key features are built into their outdoor X-Sports range of watches. It's no coincidence that a huge number of mountain guides own one.
The new Suunto Core boasts an impressively accurate altimeter that can compensate for general air pressure changes and also features an electronic compass -- both essential tools for safe navigation in all weather conditions. The Suunto Core also has a 'storm alarm' that can warn of rapidly decreasing air pressure -- a common precursor to stormy conditions.
These features come packaged in a watch available in a choice of six colours and a variety of straps to suit all tastes.
