A Suunto watch does much more than tell the time. The word Suunto itself gives you a guide: translating from Finnish to roughly bearing, heading or direction. The Suunto company started in 1933 when its founder applied for a patent that revolutionised the design of handheld compasses. These days, Suunto watches are most well known for their GPS capabilities. But, other popular features include altimeter, barometer, compass and heart-rate monitor. There is a Suunto watch for every outdoor occasion. Suunto is based in Vantaa, Finland, and most components of Suunto watches are still handcrafted. The Wilderness Shop has handpicked a range of Suunto watches that are best suit bushwalkers, adventure racers, rogainers, trail runners and mountaineers.
