Dating back to 1936, Suunto is one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of precision equipment, including sport watches, dive computers and other electronics. They quickly moved from liquid-cushioned compasses (their first product) into other areas, including sport watches. Today, Suunto manufactures and designs a number of watches that provide vital information for skiers and snowboarders, as well as other athletes.
Like Garmin, Suunto goes to great lengths to ensure that not only are their watches stylish, comfortable and durable, but that they provide vital functionality, as well. These watches include GPS tracking, as well as heart rate monitoring, directional compasses, barometric pressure readouts, and altitude readings to name just a few.
The Spartan is one of the most popular models manufactured by Suunto, and is available in black, pink, black/silver, blue and white. The Spartan Ultra kicks things up a notch with a more streamlined form factor. The Traverse features one of the most rugged designs on the market, and the Core is a good all-around performer. Other options include the Core Crush, and the AMBIT3.
Whether you need to track your location, keep an eye on altitude, watch for weather changes, or just monitor your fitness level, Suunto watches help you do it.
