DIVING AND SAILING WATCH SUUNTO CORE

EQUIPMENT by KRISS on 24 august 2017

DIVING AND SAILING WATCH SUUNTO CORE I never wear a watch, or really very very rarely.
I think I must have owned 2 proper watches in my life.
My first watch was my mum’s gift when I moved to Scotland and it was black and white plastic Swatch that I loved dearly.
I worn it all the time in Scotland and then the day it died it really looked worn out and I didn’t do anything to replace it.

Then about 3 years ago, my wife got me a beautiful Skagen watch for Christmas, very elegant, in stainless but a deep blue background and I never wear it.
I am ashamed but I just don’t.
Sometimes I wear it because I know she likes it but it’s really not that often !

So I am not a watch person, I have covered that.
But it’s been a little while I’ve had in mind to get myself a smart watch that would allow me to know a few things : air pressure, air or water temperature, dive depth and maybe GPS.
Well, GPS was asking too much for my budget and I probably wouldn’t have made use of it anyways.
But the other information I often need and don’t have.

And so out boredom, I mean I have spent this last weeks focusing 100% on the boat and my sailing courses so when I’m home with 35°C in the house there isn’t much I can do besides reading or blogging.
So out of boredom I started looking for watches reviews and couldn’t find anything that either matched what I was looking for or appealed to me.
And then, magic Amazon opened a page with a few Suunto watches, including one called core.
It was discounted from 269 euros to 180 euros which is already a nice bargain.
I think it has to do with a newer fancier model that is out now but the watch accomplished the exact same functions.
Anyways, as I often do, I looked if any reconditioned item was available, and there were a few ! I got my birthday present a couple of weeks early this year, thanks everyone for participating… and it cost 104 euros.
Not bad for a watch that sells at 269 euros on the official Suunto webiste.

Just received it, easy to set up, seems to have just the options I was looking for and so maybe I’ll wear a watch more often now who knows ? Or I’ll just take it when I dive…
