Started in 1936 by Finnish explorer Tuomas Vohlonen when he invented a means by which to mass product the liquid filled compass, Suunto has been on the forefront of innovation and development of watches, compasses, and dive computers. Since their beginning, the team at Suunto has established a robust international presence and has become the company of choice of outdoor adventurers and divers alike. With all of this in mind, it makes sense that the word “Suunto” is Finnish for direction, not only in the direction provided by their watches, compasses, and dive computers, but also the direction of the company, which is clearly forward. Let’s now take a look at some of the top selling pieces of Suunto innovation for the dive community!

Built with the intrepid diver in mind, if one word had to be used to sum up the EON Steel Dive Computer, it would be “tough”.
