Question

Does Suunto offer a case replacement service?

Hello,

after years of use in various environments [climbing European Alps, walking various European ways, Sailing various European waters/seas] the case of my Suunto Core Black Yellow looks more 'scratched black and aluminium with yellow spots' then 'Black Yellow'.

The watch itself is still working but I would like the case to be replaced. Does Suunto offer such a service?
And at what price? [I'm not in favour of our consumption driven society but if the price of a case comes close to a new watch it is so tempting...]

I believe this is the consequence of the major design flaw of placing the barometric sensor holes at the bottom of the watch - where the sweat easily accumulates.
If you place the watch where there is no sweat - you will get much more reliable alt. gain readings.
Also - fix for this is also doable in software IMO - but it seems there is no serious interest in fixing this.

Question

Barometric pressure sensor calibration

I have checked barometric pressure measured by Suunto Core against pressures measured by Suunto Escape 203 and Garmin GPSMap 60CS and there has been 2 hPa difference. Both Escape 203 and GPSMap 60CS have shown the same values but Suunto Core barometric pressure was 2 hPa higher. Therefore I believe, that the pressure measured by Core is not correct. Is there a way to calibrate/adjust the sensor output against the known pressure? Could that be done at one of you service centers?

I believe all Core models have compatible strap attachments.
Some straps use single axle (i.e. light+standard elastomer), other straps (i.e. leather or color/flat elastomer) use 2 axles.
If you check the picture details with the given strap you will see the difference.
My alu light watch was fine with both types of straps (elastomer light, flat elastomer black and brown leather).
Also make sure the color of the metal arms holding both axles together matches the watch body - including the finish (glossy vs matte).
PS: Elastomer light rubber ring was the first thing that snapped - after couple of months, buy replacement while it is still produced.

Please accept our apologies for the delayed response.

The altimeter on your Suunto Core cannot operate in an airplane as the cabin of an airplane is a pressurized environment. The temperature and humidity during a flight changes several times depending on the planes altitude. At 35000 ft, the outside temperature of a plane is - 40C to - 60C degrees below zero however, the temperature inside a plane is kept at a steady and comfortable +22 - +24 C.

Where you in a pressurized aircraft? The sensor will only read to the altitude that the aircraft is pressurized to. By setting the reference barometer and altitude you should get a pretty accurate reading in an unpressurized aircraft. At least that has worked for me.

Question

Core VS Sunscreen

Took my Suunto Core out for a 5 day saltwater fishing trip. Turns out the sunscreen I was using reacted with the casing causing it to melt. I ended up with a nasty plastic smear on my arm and now the casing looks pretty unappealing.

I would assume that as this watch is supposed to be a super tough outdoor watch, that it would be resistant to something as commonplace as sunscreen. I don't even want to know what bug repellent would do to it.

Anyone else have this issue?

Was wandering what sun screen you were using. I have used 100% deet and SPF 30 sun screen and have had no detrimental effects on band or casing. Did you inadvertently get fuel or some other petroleum based product on you that would have come in contact with the watch?

Have you tried putting it to sleep then wake it up and reenter your settings? Beyond that I think you should send it in to have the factory look at it. Sorry no better help than that.

You need to set up reference values to alti/baro. See user guide page 26.

http://ns.suunto.com/Manuals/Core/Userguides/Suunto_Core_Userguide_EN.pdf

To get the reference values google sea level pressure and altitude of your current location.

Any way to display time in altimeter mode?

New 'Core' purchase - would like to be able to display time as secondary display while in altimeter mode. This seems possible in Barometer or Depth mode, don't see how to do it in Altimeter mode. This was easily done with your Vector product.

Not like the manual says, you don´t choose the nearest city north/south, you choose the nearest city in the same Latitude, so you choose the nearest city to east/west! even if it is in the other side of the world.
