Suunto launches Core Extreme Edition Red, and first Vector with HRM

Suunto has launched a new member of its award-winning Suunto Core outdoor sports instrument collection. The Suunto Core Extreme Edition Red reflects the Suunto brand colours through its black aluminium top ring with a red accent.

Suunto Core has been designed to provide reliable and accurate data to confidently evaluate the user’s surroundings. It combines advanced ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) functions with benefits such as a depth meter, sunrise and sunset times, and a menu in four languages. Available in a selection of styles from urban to outdoors.

Suunto Core Extreme Edition Red is available from November 2009.

Whether you are already climbing mountains or training to get there, the new Suunto Vector HR is a tool for all those seeking top performance. This new model is the first to contain a heart rate monitor as well as compass, barometer and altimeter.

Each sophisticated feature provides users with the information needed to make responsible decisions when in the great outdoors.

Suunto Vector HR’s zone alarms let the climber know when the heart rate is climbing faster than the climber is-or when the training regime is too easy.

There’s a huge range of features alongside this, which you can see at

The new Suunto Vector HR is also available from November 2009.
