The Suunto company, based in Vantaa, Finland, is a universally famous designer and manufacturer of sports precision instruments, intended for diving, mountaineering, sailing, training, orienteering, hiking, skiing, sailing and golf.
Today the brand is proud to introduce its unique watch line - Suunto Elementum. Created in Finland, all the items demonstrate the highest degree of excellence. These attractive, city-encouraged timepieces represent a fusion of unparalleled prowess, sophisticated technology and impeccable functionality.
The line includes three timepieces: Elementum Aqua, Elementum Terra and Elementum Ventus.
When translated, the models’ names mean Water, Earth and Wind – three elements the activity of the Suunto company is closely linked to. The watches mentioned are intentionally manufactured for Diving, Mountaineering and Sailing.
According to Juha Pinomaa, President of Suunto, the company has turned a new page in its history by launching a collection of these exclusive sports timepieces. The latter mirror the major specialists’ knowledge in the field of diving, mountaineering and sailing.
Juha Pinomaa also says that there is a growing demand for high performance sports timepieces in the watch retail locations, established by the brand. Therefore, Suunto creates up-to-date and functional watches to comply with the customers’ requirements.
The Aqua watch activates such functions and measurements as depth, max depth, dive time, surface time and water temperature the moment its owner enters the water. The watch is perfect for wearing both above and under the sea level.
The Terra watch offers all the basic functions, necessary for urban lifestyle. They are an altimeter, intended for altitude measurement, a barometer for effortless prediction of upcoming weather and a compass for navigation.
The Ventus sailing watch is extremely advanced from a technological standpoint and very graceful at the same time. Its notable features include a barometer for prediction of weather changes, an advanced compass for navigation and a sailing timer meant for the perfect race start.
The Suunto Elementum collection has been offered for sale in USA, Italy and Sweden in summer 2009 and it will be commercialized in Finland, Argentina, Greece, Japan and Singapore in autumn 2009.
