Stylish and feature-heavy watch
Skip to view product specifications

The Core watch comes with a few more rugged features than your average timepiece, including an in-built barometer, altimeter and a magnetic compass as well.


All these gadgets are easy to set up and calibrate using the intuitive menu system, but unfortunately the stopwatch doesn’t allow lap timing so it isn’t particularly useful as a training tool.

After training or at work, details like articulating strap mounts and the smoothly rounded body make the Core comfortable for everyday use.

A chunky metal bezel surrounds the mineral crystal glass face that displays time, compass and altimeter functions in easy-to-read large digits.


The black body and bright orange strap give the Core an eye-catching adventurous look and the barometric storm warning is very effective at predicting rain.
