Suunto was founded in 1936 by Toumas Vohlonen in Vantaa, Finland, after Toumas invented the mass production of a unique method for sealing lightweight compasses. Since then, the company has been the leader in the design and innovation of sports watches, as well as dive computers and other sports instruments.
Suunto is known for its unique, multi-function wristwatches, with bestselling models including the Core, Vector, Ambit, X10, and X-Lander. What makes Suunto special is its ability to design and create timepieces dedicated to a number of different sports such as golfing, hiking, skiing, and sailing. Over the years, the brand has won several awards, most of which can be traced back to its focus on simplicity and functionality in terms of watch design and build.
