A well-designed and fully featured ABC watch that's at home on any skiing and mountaineering mission. As for other outdoor activities, they are not sufficient to exploit the Suunto Core Glacier Gray Digital SS016636000 Watch fully.
The Core is around since 2007 and over the years, its popularity is still riding an upward curve. Whether you are climbing peaks, travelling or out for some adventures, there's nothing better than the Suunto Core Glacier Gray Digital SS016636000 Watch to fill in the place. This technical, multifunction sports watch weighing just 64 g displays every data that you might require while outdoors and its massive, high contrast screen offers maximum visibility whether under bright light or in pitch dark.
The scratch resistant screen displays a lot of info at once; all you need to do is operate the five buttons properly. The menu is intuitive and makes the learning curve short in its real sense.
The screen dedicates individually to time, altitude and direction, one at a time. Apart from that, it also shows the total vertical ascent and descent, the altitudes logged; countdowns and alarms that forecast storms and sunrise/sunset. The backlight is bright, but is not required unless it's pitch dark around. The white background with black numbering makes it easier to read data in dim light.
The Altimeter/Altitude Log tells for how long one has gone; the total ascent and descent beside the current altitude and the stored logbook tells about the vertical ascent of the user. All that makes the Suunto Core Gray Digital SS016636000 Watch a great pacing tool!
Regarding the barometer, it's a self-switching mechanism. Stay at one place for an extended period and the barometer mode automatically switches on to record weather trends. The countdown timer is a great help to time just anything. Yes, even indoors!
The Suunto Glacier Digital SS016636000 Watch comes with 3 alarms with snooze functions, of which, the two we spoke about earlier and the third one obviously involves regular time.
The compass is almost as accurate as the Suunto MC-2G Global Compass but you cannot measure an angle of inclination or elevation with it. The notched bezel has the 'North' marked into it but not the degrees. The thermometer will show accurate readings if off the wrist or if it has some sort of insulation underneath, say; when you are wearing it over gloves that don't let the body heat out.
Now comes the most important part – the battery life! It's surprising the length it lasts; using every feature every day all day long will also make it run for near about a year! And the best part is – the watch lets you know when it needs a new one!
