On the mountain or off, Suunto's new Essentials Collection is rugged enough for a Himalayan adventure and sophisticated enough for a night out on the town. The company is combining premium materials with their robust, outdoor-specific feature set into a new collection called Essentials. The watch cases have been updated in high-grade stainless steel with a choice of premium finishes. 

Hand-built in Finland, the watches may be in minimal and form, but that full outdoor-ready feature set you know and love is right there and ready to go. That feature set includes an Altimeter, Barometer, Compass, Dual Time, Sunrise/Sunset, Temperature, Storm Alarm, and it's water-resistant to 100 feet. The battery is user replaceable and simply requires a coin to remove the caseback and uses your typical and very common CR2032 battery that will power the watch for a year. 

Suunto Essential is now available worldwide at select retailers and suunto.com.
