Suunto was founded in 1936 by Tuomas Vohlonen, a Finnish orienteer and inventor of the liquid-filled field compass. Since then Suunto has been at the forefront of design and innovation for sports watches, dive computers and instruments used by adventure seekers all over the globe.
Suunto has always been a leader in the field: In 1952, Helsinki was hosting the Olympic Games, and the torches carried to light the Olympic flame were Suunto products. The first marine compass, Suunto K-12, was launched onto the market in 1953. In 1960, Suunto introduced its first diving compass – designed and initiated by divers. Suunto introduced the SME dive computer in 1987, eliminating the need for divers to calculate the safe duration of a dive and decompression time with just diving tables. In 1998, the Suunto Vector wristop computer paved the way for the next generation of wristop computers - it measured air pressure, altitude, time, direction, and could even help predict changes in the weather. In 2007, the Suunto Lumi was created - the first female outdoor instrument specifically made for women, by women. Suunto’s first premium sports watch collection, Suunto Elementum, was introduced in spring 2009. The Suunto Elementum is a watch for the urbanites: active city dwellers with interest in sailing, diving and outdoor activities, who value the combination of style and function.
Suunto's headquarters and manufacturing plant is in Vantaa, Finland. Employing more than 400 people worldwide, Suunto products are sold in over 100 countries. The company is a subsidiary of Amer Sports Corporation along with its sister brands Salomon, Arc'teryx, Atomic, Wilson, Precor, and Mavic.
Today, Suunto computers are equipped with innovative features like digital 3D compasses, optional deep stops, electroluminescent illumination for easy reading, dive simulators, altimeters, clocks, alarms, and many more. Suunto compasses have luminescent floating dials, supertilt and maxtilt features to extend readable angle, and can be mounted on the wrist or on a console.
