Suunto S6 offers the user information on different matters that contribute to fun, safety and training efforts on snow. Altitude, slope angle, speed, compass, bearing and barometric pressure are topics of interest for everyone who wants to enjoy the slope experience to the maximum. All these features and many others are controlled with a menu-based user interface familiar from mobile phones. It is easy to learn and fun to use.
The clinometer measures the slope angle to help the user to estimate avalanche risk or just to tell friends how steep the slope really was.
The altimeter gives accurate information on the vertical performance when skiing or snowboarding. It is also an important orienteering aid when the weather gets bad. The altimeter and the clinometer work together and count the exact speed of the user on a vertical performance. Besides timing functions you have access to relevant speed data. The skichrono enables spontaneous races between skiers as well as systematic training. The logbook counts your runs, and tells their cumulated vertical distance. It also records a detailed altitude profile, which gives a totally new level to your after-ski discussions.
The barometer tracks the weather conditions, which helps to plan the skiing day. It includes a storm alarm function and a thermometer. The compass works as a safety device in the mountains and also helps orientating to a new environment.
Deeper Understanding Suunto Activity Manager -software links Suunto S6 to a PC and makes it easy to visualise skiing profiles and to analyse training data.
