NEWS: New Suunto Core piles on the outdoor features


Techno watchmaker Suunto has launched a new watch range called 'Core' that knows where it is and what's going on whether you're on top of Everest or wreck-diving in the Pacific. The Cores, which will retail somewhere between £180 and £350, have the following headline features in addition to the expected compass, barometer and chronometer:

1) Storm Alarm
The inbuilt barometer tracks air pressure and sounds an alarm and flashes during a sudden drop.

2) Altimeter accurate to 10,000m.

3) One-push zeroing for the alimeter, allowing you to track you ascent and descent from your walk's start as a graph.

4) An underwater depth-meter.
