An indispensable instrument for outdoor enthusiasts, the Suunto Vector wrist- top computer combines an altimeter, barometer, compass, and thermometer, letting you plan and execute almost any activity with confidence and safety. Whether you’re climbing mountains, riding a muddy bike track, or skiing off piste–you need accurate, real-time information about your surroundings to pull off a successful trip. The Vector contributes by not only providing important data, but also keeping track of your activities so you can make rational decisions at key moments. The built-in altimeter, which boasts a range of up to 29,500 feet, puts all 14 of the world’s 8,000-plus-meter summits within the avid climber’s range. Among the altimeter’s functions are an altitude measurement function that lets you follow the vertical progress between stages, an automatic 24-hour memory that stores the altitude and ascent/decent rate for every hour, and an adjustable altitude alarm. Climbers will also dig the logbook function, which lets you record total and cumulative vertical ascents and descents as well as the number of runs skied. The Vector also displays the current barometric pressure and temperature–a must for activities in which weather plays a factor. The compass can set to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a chosen direction. Meanwhile, the unit allows you to correct the difference between true North and magnetic North. In addition to the variety of outdoor functions, the Vector displays normal time, has three programmable daily alarms, calendar, a stopwatch with split-time measurement, and a countdown timer. The entire design is unified by an intuitive user interface and convenient, easy-to-access control buttons–a handy extra when hiking or climbing in tough conditions. Additional features include an electro-luminescent backlight, and a user-replaceable battery. The Vector is backed by a two-year warranty on parts and labor.For ten years, the Vector has been one of sports performance instrument maker Suunto’s most popular outdoor devices. It offers both the durability and technology to help you tackle the globe’s harshest environments, with features including:

Altimeter
The altimeter features a range up to 29,500 ft, and an altitude difference measurement function for following the vertical progress between different stages of a climb. It has an automatic 24-hour memory that stores the altitude and ascent/descent rate for every hour, and features an adjustable altitude alarm and a number of different memory functions. With a unique logbook function, you can also record your total and cumulative vertical ascents and descents, as well as the number of runs skied.

Barometer
Suunto Vector displays the current barometric pressure and temperature, enabling you to forecast weather changes when they matter most. It also automatically records barometric data for the past four days — the first six hours in one-hour intervals and in six-hour intervals thereafter. When the reference altitude is set correctly, the instrument also shows the present sea level pressure, making it easier for you to read and understand the barometric pressure at high altitudes.

Compass
The built-in digital compass guides you with cardinal or half-cardinal points, and the north-south arrow. The compass can also be set to track a certain bearing, which helps you follow a desired direction in unknown terrain. The declination adjustment function allows you to correct the difference between true north and magnetic north, as well, for a more accurate reading and direction.

Time
In addition to the outdoor-related functions, Suunto Vector also displays current time, in either 12- or 24-hour format. It has three daily alarms, a calendar programmed to the year 2089, a stopwatch with split-time measurement, and a countdown timer.
