I have had a lot of questions about my new Suunto altimeter watch. And no, I am not writing this because they sponsor me, I am writing this because I just think it’s a dandy product.
The Suunto Lumi is so cool, that even my best bud, Anne has one and all my other girlfriends want one. Pretty rad. And no, that is not MY left hand. Take a breath. hahaha 😀 Mine is the right hand.
And if you and your guy want to look ultra cool, he can get the Suunto Core . That’s outdoor gear junkie heaven.
and you can hang out at the coffee shop.
But seriously, down to business. The Suunto Lumi and the Suunto Core are not heart rate monitors. However, there are Suuntos with a heart rate monitor. Jeff has one, and he likes it a lot. The T6 is a really cool one…one that I hope to own someday. Someday!!! I really like the ad with the EKG, but that’s because I’m a nerd and I read physiology books for fun. B-)
It comes with a thorough instruction booklet that can be daunting at first, but you just have to have the patience to read through it. However, if you have clicked on the links above, the websites for the different models are very interactive and user friendly. Supa cool! It measures altitude based on barometric pressure, so the measurement varies with the weather. It’s not too far off, but as an enginerd, I wish it was a little more accurate. However, that’s just something you have to accept with that type of measurement, and it’s pretty standard across altimeter watches. A cool feature of the Suunto Lumi is that you can buy different straps. Yes, I am a girl and all, so cool colors are always a plus. I just need to somehow find a way to save my pennies. I swear there is a huge hole in my wallet. It goes somewhere….somewhere…
That said, ENJOY! 😀
I have the T-6 which you can also use as a cyclo computer, but have updraded to a Garmin GPS Unit. The T-6 is great though.
Thanks for the review! Those watches are sweeeet! The only thing holding me back is the size of the Sunnto Core. Not sure if it would be too big or not?? Looks ok on your man’s wrist. Have a great weekend!!
What kind of nail polish is that? “Vamp”?
The Suunto’s looks sweet. Thanks for the info.
thank you for the 411!!! I have to get one with an HR monitor too though. I can not ‘afford” to get one of each!! SUCKS!
Hell yeah. Vamp is the coolest new thing. 🙂 haha. Nah. My friend convinced me to paint my nails, which was picked off promptly after, only to expose grease under my nails. 😉
Brand Design is my very favorite.
