These days, most smartwatch manufacturers are cramming as much tech into their offerings as possible — to the point that many wearables can now match smartphones when it comes to their built-in capabilities. However, such added functionality often comes at the expense of user-friendliness and overall toughness.
With this in mind, Suunto has just launched the all-new ‘Core Alpha Stealth,’ a watch that forgoes its integrated connectivity in favor of an absolutely bomb-proof design. Rigorously tested to MIL-STD-810 military standards, it’s resistant to shock, temperature exposure, and long-term liquid submersion up to 30m. And to ensure that it’s as mission-capable as possible, Suunto has fitted it with an altimeter, a barometer, as well as a compass that comes with adjustable declination and both digital and mechanical bearing locks. Better still, it features a host of detailed weather insights, including sea level pressure, temperature readings, and a storm alarm. As if all of that wasn’t enough though, the Core Alpha Stealth even features a ‘red light mode’ for use in the dark with night-vision goggles. Powered by a 12-month CR2032 battery, it’s secured by a Berry-compliant textile strap. You can buy it now for $299.
