When it comes to watches designed for serious outdoor activities, it’s hard to find a digital model that’s better suited than Suunto’s distinct lineup. Their new Lumi model is no different, except that it seems specifically designed for the ladies. It features a built-in barometer which it uses for daily weather forecasts and serious storm warnings as well as a digital compass, altimeter and sunrise and sunset times for over 400 locations around the world. It also includes a calendar function which will actually display a countdown to or from a specific day you need to remember, and other standard watch features like the time, daily alarms and a stopwatch.
And I guess because it’s designed for women, the Lumi also comes in your choice of different strap colors and styles “to suit your mood” as the Sunnto website puts it. Seriously though, is that what really makes a watch suited for women? Based on what strap style you choose, the Suunto Lumi appears to range in price from about $228 up to $241 according to Amazon.com.
