Suunto launches new outdoor product specifically designed for women

Sleek and feminine, versatile and intuitive, the brand new Suunto Lumi has been specifically designed as an outdoor sports instrument for women, and will be available from September 2007.

Suunto, the world-leader in outdoor wristop computers has announced the new Suunto Lumi, designed for women who enjoy an active lifestyle. Designed to be the first outdoor instrument of its kind, Suunto Lumi combines advanced altimeter, barometer, and compass (ABC) functions with new benefits including sunrise and sunset times, personal day counter, an intuitive user interface, and a menu in four languages.

Suunto Lumi is versatile enough to work both as an outdoor instrument and as a daily timepiece which can also be customized with the help of accessories. Straps in different colours and patterns make it easy to fit one’s current mood. With the carabiner jacket, Suunto Lumi is protected against rough handling and can be attached anywhere. With the pendant, Suunto Lumi transforms into a stylish timepiece, indispensable at any time, day or night.

Anna Markelin, product manager for Suunto Lumi said: “The Suunto Lumi is a true innovation. It is the first outdoor instrument specifically made to target women as well as being designed by women.

“Suunto Lumi is for any active woman who enjoys the outdoors – and even better, with the help of different straps and accessories, it will suit any occasion as well. It is stylish enough for everyday use and at the same time Suunto Lumi is a high-quality, truly outdoor watch with all the functions you might need.”

Designed for the planner within, the Suunto Lumi features an adjustable day counter to or from a personal event, such as a deadline or a friend’s birthday, as well as daily sunrise and sunset times. Programmable for specific regions and cities, the sunrise and sunset times can help the user arrive at a destination before nightfall or assess remaining daylight for running, hiking, or even gardening.
