When it comes to the great outdoor wrist gear, Suunto timepieces have reached the highest peak. These vigorous high-performance timepieces are expressly made for sports, action and fitness enthusiasts.
Suunto is a Finnish watch brand, started in 1936 by engineer Thomas Vohlonen, who invented the mass production method for a liquid filled compass. The compass was compact, lightweight and could easily be worn on the wrist.
During World War II, Suunto introduced a liquid sighting compass which was used on missions by artillery officers. The company quickly grew after the war providing navigational instruments to both civilian and military clientele.
Compasses play a big part of Suunto’s watch assortment today, as do models measuring acceleration and altitude, along with GPS location indicators, not to mention timepieces with built-in heart monitors. The brand offers specialized models for alpine skiing, mountain hiking, golfing, sailing, swimming, diving and running.
No matter if you are climbing the mountains of the Rockies, deep-sea diving in the Caribbean, hiking in the Yosemite, skiing down the slopes in Idaho or sailing in Lake Michigan, you will want a Suunto timepiece by your side for the most accurate calculations.
The brand is prominently featured this week at luxury retailer The Watchery with their Suunto Sprint To Savings Event. Many of the brand’s popular watches for men and women are presented in the promotion, including models from the M5, Ambit 2, Quest, Core and Vector series.
The Suunto Ambit 2 Multifunction men’s wristwatch is ideal for runners. The built-in GPS function gives you accurate speed and distance. In addition, the heart rate monitor lets you train within your ideal zone. This outstanding oversized men’s watch has a round black case in durable, lightweight polyamide.
