#1 Post by endura » Thu Aug 30, 2007 7:17 pm

I am going to get this sunnto CORE wrist watch which will be release in September 2007.

Any MSM members from singapore know of any shop which carry sunnto brand?

Woo ... Those Suunto Core features list is overkill for me. :-#

Just got a Light Chocolate Nike Press for my birthday though. It only has the following features; Time, Chrono, Timer, and Alarm. :mrgreen:

It's a change from my previous series of "now defunct" Casio Databank watches. I just broke my last Databank about 3 weeks ago. :cry:

Dear Bro Endora,

What activity / function is your intended Suunto for? I believe they make different
models for different activities. @ years back I was looking at one for sailing. They
were asking HK$1500.

Bro bartmp8, you are right, sunnto does make different models for different activities. I believe this model I am looking at design toward snow skiing activities.
I do mostly hiking, biking and wondering in the street. Among all those related activities watches, the design :thumbsdown:
This sunnto I am looking for does resemble vector model which I admire for .

So you probably wish to have Temp, altimeter, compass, barometric pressure. Have you
looked at some of the casio series yet? They are cheaper than Suunto. but suunto
is oh s0 stylish.

Bro Endura,

Just had a quick look at the Suunto website http://www.suunto.com
now have to get tissue to wipe my mouth and mop up the floor.
The model you chose, Core even tells you sunrise and sunset.
Its got storm alarm, altimeter @ 1m resolution /barometer,
compass, temp and it will tell you this in 4 languages.

I think some watches even have GPS. not sure but I saw the word
GPS. Yup the Suunto X9i has GPS.

"View tracks on Google Earth™
The Suunto Track Exporter software allows you to export tracks from your Suunto X9i to Google Earth, where you can view your adventures anywhere on the globe with real satellite imagery. Once exported to Google Earth, you can relive your adventures, zooming from outer space to distances as close as 200 feet with detailed resolution. You can also show progressions of your trips with three-dimensional flyovers from start to finish, and share the excitement of the adventures with anyone who uses Google Earth by emailing the tracks or posting them on a website." - quote from Suunto website for X9i

There you go. Maybe there is even a suunto with microwave oven for
heating your cup noodles at Everest Basecamp.
