You don’t have to take the Suunto Core Collector’s Edition Everest Watch to the world’s highest peak, but you could if you wanted to. Made with renowned mountaineer Apa Sherpa’s signature engraved on the back, this titan of a timepiece is part of a one-time run of 8,848 units to reflect Everest’s height in meters. If the tech features aren’t enough to woo you, then know that a portion of the proceeds will go directly to The Apa Sherpa Foundation to support the remote village near Everest Base Camp.

  • Altimeter usable up to 30,000 feet, which means you’d have to ride the wing of a jetliner to pass this gauge’s limit
  • Altitude log and altitude difference measurement help you track your movements in the alpine world
  • Barometer with automatic alti/baro lock , weather trend indicator, and storm alarm means you may never have to watch the weather channel again
  • Depth meter is usable to 32.8 feet under water so you can get info on your sub-sea-level exploits as well

    Good one....

      Stoked....I have a few days of use out of this far I like the ease of use in regards to the basic functions....And it looks sharp out of the box...

      I manged to get watch 8488 of 8848...

      I will report back in due time as far as durability goes...

      Can someone who owns this watch confirm...

      Can someone who owns this watch confirm this watch has a heart rate monitor? (I do not see the chest strap pictured)

      Thanks in advance....

      It's a mistake, Mike, there is no heart monitor on the Core. The Vector HR does have most of the same functions as a Core, if you require an ABC watch with a Heart Rate monitor as well. There is also the Suunto X6HR, HRM, and HRT, as well, but I don't think Backcountry carries these at the moment.

      Stoked just got mine the other day....

      Looks good,ready to go....Time to go try it out!


      Style added Core

        I love the Core's basic primary functions; altimeter, barometer, compass - but this Everest edition adds Style to the categories. And a portion of the proceeds will go directly to The Apa Sherpa Foundation. Love this watch. In the outdoors, or out to hang with friends.

        do you have to enter a reference elevation...

        do you have to enter a reference elevation with this watch to get accurate altimeter readings?

        Best Answer

        These do have a smart feature that senses your movement, or lack thereof, switching between altimeter and barometer accordingly. When you’re climbing, it records changes in elevation. And when you stop to rest, it records changes in barometric pressure. --Though yes, an occasional calibration is definitely suggested, this feature really does do a good job of keeping your altitude readings accurate.
