I have a Core All Black and the time is hard to read and nearly always have to push the light to view. Can you make the display brighter?

This process will allow you to adjust the display on Core models.

*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

My Compass is stuck between around 150 - 180 degrees? Is this fixable?

I've tried rotating it in the 360/15s in compass mode but that didn't do anything so I'm wondering how this can be fixed so the compass works properly again. would taking out the battery work?

Hold the four corner buttons simultaneously for several seconds. This will reset your watch entirely. If I recall, it will shut it off. Pushing one, or some of the buttons will turn it on again. Once it's back on you can re-calibrate the compass (just be sure to keep it level when doing so).

Hello,

We would firstly advise you to switch off your Suunto Core.
1. Press the four buttons (except Mode) in the same time until Suunto appears on the display and the watch turns off.
2. Press Mode button until you see Language, scroll through the settings with Mode button until Keep Level - Rotate is seen on the display.
3. Slowly rotate the watch clockwise until the compass is activated.

Question

How water proof really are these?

hi, I'm looking at the CORE model and concerned about how water tight is this watch is. You have some conflicting information here. You placed a depth gauge device on the core, but the ISO standard that the watch qualifies for states this:Suitable for everyday use. Splash/rain resistant. NOT suitable for swimming, snorkelling, water related work and fishing.

That quote is straight out of the ISO standard. NOT suitable for even swimming. So where does this put us?

answer 1
hi , i had the same question some time ago , after some researchi found this :
ISO 2281:

The International Organization for Standardization issued a standard for water resistant watches which also prohibits the term waterproof to be used with watches, which many countries have adopted. In order to pass for this certification it is not required for each and every individual watch to be subjected to tests, only lot sampling is required.This standard was only designed for watches intended for ordinary daily use during exercises under water for a short period under conditions where water pressure and temperature vary. The tests are:

Immersion of the watch in 10 cm of water for 1 hour.

Immersion of the watch in 10 cm of water with a force of 5 Newton perpendicular to the crown and pusher buttons (if any) for 10 minutes.

Immersion of the watch in 10 cm of water at the following temperatures for 5 minutes each, 40°C(104F), 20°C (68F)and 40°C(104F) again, with the transition between temperatures not to exceed 5 minutes. No evidence of water intrusion or condensation is allowed.

Immersion of the watch in a suitable pressure vessel and subjecting it to the rated pressure for 1 hour. No evidence of water intrusion or condensation is allowed.

Exposing the watch to an overpressure of 2 bar, no more than 50µg/min of air is allowed to get inside the case.

No magnetic or shock resistance properties are required.

No negative pressure test is required.

No strap attachment test is required.

No corrosion test is required.

So in short it means that the minimum requirement is that the watch will pass a 20 meter(66') test. However if the watch have a different rating then just plain Water resistant for instance a 30M, 50M,100M,200M etc rating then it needs to be tested in a a pressure chamber with a static overpressure equvivalent to the pressure at that depth.

The last part was the most important , so the Core has indeed a ISO 2281 certificate but with a extra added 30m/100ft guarantee, wich makes it safe for shallow to medium dives , also the Core has something called stinger buttons wich can be pressed underwater.
Anyway i've been swimming with my Glacier Gray for some time now and no problems ocurred, hope this helped , cheers

If you get wrong readings you can try taking the battery out, putting it back in and then going to the compass mode. Now it should prompt you to recalibrate by holding the watch level and slowly rotating it a couple of times.

I had a similar problem and realised the magnets in my Trion Band screwed the Compass in my Core. I read many recommendations suggesting you change the Battery as it can hold a magnetic charge.

This did go some way towards fixing the problem but in the end I had to reboot the watch by holding a few of the buttons and restarting it (I didn't lose any data but I did have to reset the time) but doing this will enable you to recalibrate your compass as when new

Hope this helps.

answer 3
The compass on the Core automatically calibrates itself with use, but it may need to be calibrated manually in the following circumstances:
_The battery has been changed.
_The service menu has been accessed.
_The Core has been in the vicinity of a large amount of metal (e.g. an airplane).
_The Core has been in contact with a magnet.
_The Core has been in contact with a strong electro-magnetic field.
_The compass has not been used in some time.

To calibrate the compass enter compass mode then hold the Core level and start slowly rotating it. 3-4 full rotations should normally be enough to calibrate the compass but if the Core has been in contact with a magnet/magnetic field then you may find that it needs to be rotated a few more times. Keep rotating the Core until the compass reads correctly.

NOTE: The compass on the Core will deactivate after 60 seconds of use and "Start Compass" will be displayed. This is a battery saving feature, press the 'Start/Stop' button to reactivate the compass.

There is a way to have a timer feature with the core. When the "Depth Meter" profile is selected use the "view" button to select "log 0:00'00".
Click "start" and the log feature will record how long you were freediving as well as what your max depth was. Just a reminder that the core is only water resistant to 100 feet/30 meters. when you want to stop recording just hit the "stop" button.

btw, I've used my core while skiing and logged my skiing (twice, once at 30 second intervals and another at 1 minute intervals). The watch logged total ascent and descent (equal) and you could look at the altitude graph and very easily see each of the runs etc (and what time, how long they took). The data wasn't numeric, but reading the graph to get all of this info was no problem. Hope this helps!

There is a small risk that water will go inside the watch if the pressure of the waves is too hard. However the risk is minimal. If the unit casing has scratches, the risk increases.

Unfortunately the Core must be removed from your wrist for at least 15 minutes if you would like to measure the air temperature as the sensor is influenced by your body heat when the Core is worn.
