    FS SUUNTO CORE (Alu Black)

    The ideal Christmas present: an all-in-one outdoor sports instrument for the vertically inclined!

    This model is the top of the Suunto range and lists the following functions:

    Altimeter
    Barometer
    Compass
    Altitude difference measurement
    Depth meter
    Automatic Alto/Baro switch
    Storm Alarm
    Sunset/sunrise times
    user replaceable battery

    See below for more details

    It is unused still in the box, in perfect condition. Most models sell at over £200 on Amazon (please see their reviews). Their models have a predominately black rim this is mostly silver with black notches but the functions are the same. The reason for sale is that it's an unwanted prize from the 2011 TransAlpine Race.


    If interested pm me with an offer exceeding £125 (to include P&P). I will accept the best offer received by midnight on Friday 16th December.


    ************************************************** **************************************************

    The award-winning Suunto Core gathers a range of data to help you navigate your way through the wilder parts of the world.

    Altimeter

    The altimeter features a range up to 9000m (29 500 ft). It is ideally suited for all activities where knowing your altitude and ascent and descent rates is essential. The Core altimeter sports an altitude difference measurement that allows you to track your progress in terms of altitude climbed. The log recorder stores all your movements in altitude between the start and stop times, so you can re-live your trip at home - view graphs of changes in altitude during your treks, find out how much you climbed, the duration of ascents and descents, average ascent and descent speed and more.
    Barometer

    Suunto Core displays the current sea level pressure as a detailed graph, showing recording of the last 24 hours with a recording interval of 30 minutes. The weather trend indicator is a useful feature providing quick reference to check upcoming weather conditions. The storm alarm notifies you of a sudden drop in air pressure, which may be related to worsening weather conditions.
    Automatic Alti/Baro switch

    Suunto Core sports an Automatic Alti/Baro switch, a smart feature that senses your movement or lack thereof, switching between altimeter and barometer accordingly. When youíre climbing, it records changes in elevation. And when you stop to rest, it records changes in barometric pressure. A drop in air pressure while youíre sleeping under the stars will be recorded for what it really is: a change in barometric pressure, not altitude
    Compass

    The digital compass displays the cardinal or half-cardinal point and the North. The declination adjustment function allows you to correct the difference between the true North and magnetic North. You can also set it to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a chosen direction in the terrain. The compass features a rotating bezel for traditional use (most variants), or a one-touch function that allows you to sight lock and follow a bearing.
    Depth meter

    Intended for snorkeling, the Suunto Core depth meter provides information on current depth and the maximum depth reached during your snorkeling dive. The maximum depth of the device is 10m (32,8 ft).
    Watch

    Watch functions include time, dual time, date, alarm, sports chronograph, countdown timer and predicted times for sunrise and sunset for over 400 locations worldwide.
    Donít get stuck in the dark

    Use your Suunto Core to know when itís time to set up camp or keep moving forward. From over 400 locations stored in your Suunto Core, select the one closest to you, and get useful data about sunrise and sunset times in moments.
    Avoid harsh weather

    Stay one step ahead of Mother Nature Ė use the barometer function on your Suunto Core to help forecast weather changes on your next overnight trip. In the evening, set your Suunto Core to barometer mode and in the morning, you can check the pressure trend and pressure graph to see what kind of weather is in store.
    Find the ideal pace on your next ascent

    Make every step a calculated one Ė use your Suunto Core to carefully pace yourself on your way to the top. Simply find a reference point and set the altitude in your Suunto Core, then start the altitude difference measurer and begin your climb! At any point during your ascent, a quick glance at your Suunto Core will let you know how far you are from the summit.
