Suunto watches come from a heritage based in outdoor pursuits, with a long history of producing a variety of products for orienteering and diving. In 1936 Finnish inventor Tuomas Vohlonen discovered and patented an innovative new idea for a liquid-filled compass, far improving accuracy for better, steadier readings. This compass formed the foundation of the Suunto brand, which would go on to develop a series of top-level engineering and marine compasses, wearable dive computers and premium sports watches.
A Suunto watch today combines modern design ideas with the reliability, strength and multi-functionality the brand has long been known for. Ideal for extreme sports or outdoor pursuits enthusiasts in the main, Suunto also has a range of lifestyle watches for men and women with a variety of specialised functions included.
