Here it is. The Suunto Core All Black (Military) model number SS014279010. This is my newest obsession. I’ve been hearing about Suunto watches and, more importantly, finding them along side my searches and posts of other watches I’ve been obsessed with in the past. It is the best looking digital watch on the planet right now. I have a large wrist and always had a hard time finding a big digital watch that didn’t look like a bunch of plastic thrown together to look cool, like the Casio Pathfinder. The Suunto Core has a very clean and refined look.
This particular Suunto is the competition for the Casio Pathfinder. I don’t know which came first but this watch is what’s called an “ABC” watch because it has an Altimeter, Barometer and Compass. It also has a lot of other features like stopwatch, countdown timer, alarm, dual time zone, temperature, weather, weather alarm just to name a few. I personally don’t have any use for most of that stuff. I realistically see myself using the time, stopwatch, countdown timer, alarm, and temperature. Although, I read somewhere that you have to take the watch off your wrist and let it sit for a while to get an accurate temperature reading. The number 1 reason I just ordered this watch online is because of the size, color, style and brand reputation. I will be wearing this watch to the gym, shooting range, golf course, and other recreations including vacations that involve water.
I just got it in the mail today! Wow. It’s definitely big enough and looks perfect. It’s exactly what I wanted. I added 4 more pictures of it on my wrist and an unboxing video.
