New Night Vision Capable Suunto Core Alpha Stealth Military Inspired Watch

Night vision devices and related gear are starting to come into mainstream appeal with a lot of gun owners for their ability to take shooting and hunting well beyond the reach of the sun. Suunto is a Finnish company that specializes in outdoors-oriented watches ranging from GPS rigged trekking watches to their freshly released Core Alpha Stealth watch. The new watch brings to the table some incredibly durable construction, tons of mountaineering features, and even night vision compatibility for nighttime operations.

New Night Vision Capable Suunto Core Alpha Stealth Military Inspired Watch

The Core Alpha Stealth has been rigorously tested to MIL-STD-810 standards and should survive some of the most demanding and tough conditions that you can imagine throwing at it. The watch comes complete with a barometer, compass, altimeter, red backlight for nighttime viewing, weather forecasting as well as sunset and sunrise times. The watch is also water-resistant up to 30 meters (100ft) for snorkelling duty and shallow diving. The watch even features a depth meter for underwater use.

What is really great about the Core Alpha Stealth is that it features a 12-month battery life and a user-replaceable CR2032 battery so that you don’t need to make any extra trips to the jewelry store to have your battery replaced. The watch can be used with both imperial and metric units throughout all of its various measurements and also features a multi-lingual menu including English, German, Spanish and French. The watch comes with free shipping and a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back – all for $299.99 and without any of those pesky notifications coming from your phone constantly.

What really draws me into this watch is its claim that the red backlighting is “night vision goggle friendly.” As someone who has just recently picked up my own night vision device, I have found it incredibly difficult to find nighttime use objects that don’t instantly activate the onboard auto-gating functions on most night vision devices. Hopefully, fellow writer and resident night vision device expert Nick C can get his hands on one of these watches and put it through its paces both on the durability front as well as its capabilities under night vision! What are your thoughts on this new watch? Let us know down in the comments.

    Not bad looking.
    I still trust my G-Shock...
    Fun F-ed up story...

    A guy I knew who deployed to Iraq got blown up by an IED. By the grace of God he survived all be it F-ed up. Years and numerous surgeries later he got partial vision back to his right eye. Has a metal insert in his jaw for reconstructive surgery along with a long laundry list of other complications that modern medicine has either overcame or partially solved. He always joked... "im all jacked up but my G shock still works".

      @Uniform223 Glad your buddy is doing okay. I have a Gshock I bought in Albany back in 2003 and it still works and has the original battery no less.

      @Alternator Haha!
      Those mall ninjas get all the attention and chicks.
      I’m getting a into aerial photography and I was thinking to myself how great this watch would be for weather forecasting and flying at night. Heck I might have to appease my inner mall ninja and get one! You know you want one too.
