Question

Countdown timer has no alarm?

I've got a suunto core ultimate black for Christmas and love it so far.

However one thing i've noticed is that when I use the countdown timer, when it reaches zero the watch makes no alarm or tone at all, its just silent.

Have I turned it off somehow or is this possibly a fault with my watch?

Question

Battery life

Watched switched itself off in the morning for no reason. Only 3 days old and brand new. Took off and 20 min later turned itself back on but had to reset time etc. Battery sign came on to indicate low bat level. How is this possible when only 3 days old? Had this similar problem on my old core which had to have bat replaced every 3 months. Can someone please help as not happy if this is still a problem.???

That the device is resetting by itself is usually a sign of low battery.

Please replace the battery with a fresh one and the watch should function properly again.

Question

Why profile switches to altimeter when I get into the shower!?

I keep my Core on automatic. When I am home it's obviously always on barometer. As soon as I get into the (hot) shower (same floor), it switches to altimeter! This happens immediately.
Once I get out of the shower, it switches back to barometer (this takes several minutes, as it normally does when hiking).
Can anyone explain why...??

As a further test I immersed the watch in a sink of COLD water and the profile immediately switched from Barometer - as it was - to Altimeter, so the issue is not related to a confined hot shower environment.

(This is not an answer, I am just commenting my own question).

answer 2
This is likely due to the sudden change in air pressure caused by the hot water in the confined space of your shower.

The device gives you information about your current altitude by reading the ambient air pressure. If the air pressure suddenly changes, this can yield some inaccurate altitude readings.

One thing you could try is to put the glass in the glass of water over the night. Please don't press the buttons while the device is under water.
If this did not help you need to send it in by filling the service request in our pages. You can find the service request from following link.

Question

Why does a "failed pressure test" = "physical damage"?

Hi,
First, I love my Core and (more or less) happily paid the repair cost for a new watch, but I'm concerned about the potential "next time" I have an issue. I don't dive with my watch and I didn't send it in with a cracked crystal/face. I do a lot of mountaineering, going from 0-14K on a regular basis and I fly a lot, but other than that, I hadn't put it through "physical damage" that should have impacted its ability to pass a pressure test. I'm wondering if I have to send it in again and it doesn't pass a pressure test, what could I be doing that is "physical damage" that isn't considered "intended use" and otherwise not covered by the warranty?

No, you can not adjust the back-light. But the following process will allow you to adjust the display on Core models, which might help.

*NOTE* In order to change the contrast on your Core you will need to put it in sleep mode and this will erase all logs!

1. Press and hold the upper left, lower left, upper right and lower right buttons until 'SUUNTO' appears on the display.
2. When the display is blank press the upper left button once - 'SUUNTO' will appear on the screen
3. While 'SUUNTO' is still displayed press and hold the upper left button
4. Highlight the 'contrast' option then press the middle right button.
5. Change the contrast using the upper right and lower right buttons
6. Press the lower left then upper left buttons to exit

Suunto Core needs a battery change approximately once a year. The battery model is CR2032 and you can change it on your own. During the change also the O-ring should be replaced.

Calling or emailing customer service asking where you can have your watch serviced is probably your best bet. Once they contact you request a quote from them. They respond rather quickly and should be able to resolve any questions you have about replacing parts on your watch.
It's a mighty fine watch, I must say!
