“Climb Mount Everest 20 times and Suunto might make a watch for you.”
Suunto launched a limited edition watch, or outdoor sports instrument, in honor of legendary mountaineer Apa Sherpa. The Suunto Core Extreme Edition Everest watch celebrates Apa Sherpa’s world-record 20th summit of Mount Everest. It reflects his determination and strength as one of the world’s greatest living mountaineers.
Stephen Regenold over at GearJunkie has a review of all the bells and whistles of the new Sunnto watch. Only 8,848 pieces are being produced to match the elevation of Mount Everest’s summit at 8,848 meters. It seems to be a pretty sturdy watch that would be a useful addition to any outdoor adventure, but although you don’t need to be a Himalayan climber to own this watch, its $399 price tag is probably more attractive to hard core users who want the features with functionality with the extreme durability.
