Product Description

Suunto S6 has been especially designed with downhill skiers and snowboarders in mind. Measuring and analyzing the surrounding environment minimizes the risk involved in moving around the mountains, whether on or off piste. Information on your skiing or snowboarding performance, on the other hand, provides you with knowledge necessary to improve your riding.

In addition to having information available to you at all times on the slopes, the Suunto S6 records and stores data for later analysis. You can view, compare, and analyze your riding performance through a specially designed PC interface.

The technical features of the wristop computer, combined with the PC interface developed for more graphical representation of your performance, and our Internet Community, where you can share information with other like-minded skiers and snowboarders from around the world, make Suunto S6 the device of choice for every true rider and snow sport enthusiast.
