HELSINKI (August 2, 2021) – Suunto, the global leader in sports watches, dive computers and precision instruments, brings over 85 years of high-quality heritage craftsmanship, relentless accuracy and pioneering innovation to its all-new Suunto Core Alpha Stealth. Designed, built and tested to military standards, Suunto packs key mission-ready features into the Suunto Core Alpha Stealth, including ‘red light mode’ for uncompromising useage in the dark with night vision goggles. Military, tactical, survival enthusiasts and hunters will appreciate the robust construction, seamless ease of use and 12-month battery capacity in time mode without the need to charge for total off-grid usability.  

In order to meet military standards (MIL-STD-810), the Suunto Core Alpha Stealth underwent extensive and extreme testing situations, including vibration and shock management, variant temperature exposure, long-term liquid submersions scenarios, among other tests. The watch’s textile strap is Berry Amendment compliant, assuring indisputable durability while also ensuring manufacturing took place in the United States. 

“Suunto has a long history of building durable wearables designed for tactical use and outdoor functionality. The new Suunto Core Alpha Stealth is another step toward providing a versatile and all-around performance orientated non-connected sports watch, with rich features like the new night vision goggle compatibility,” says Heikki Norta, Suunto’s president. “We are excited to provide members of the military, hunters, and off-grid enthusiasts with another tool for navigating unfamiliar territory.” 

Users can navigate unexplored terrain with confidence using the precise built-in compass, featuring adjustable declination, digital and mechanical bearing locks, 30 meter water resistance, altitude, barometer and depth recording. Detailed weather insights include measurements of sea level pressure with graphing, weather trends indicator, sunrise and sunset times, temperature readings and a storm alarm.

The Suunto Core Alpha Stealth weighs in at 67 grams, comes with a aluminum bezel, composite case, mineral crystal glass and will be available for $299 at
