    It probably has one, but like on the Ambit. The pictures likely just show the watch in altimeter profile, or the arrow was not chosen for the secondary function display at the bottom.

    Personally, I think the "always on (unless alti is active) at the top" implementation of the trend arrow on the Core is the best. Some people don't want to see the date all the time (always on at the top, like on the Ambit) but do want to see the arrow all the time and perhaps a second time zone etc. at the bottom. The Core allows this.

    This one was recently added by Suunto as "New, Exclusive":

    The "Graphite" and "Amber" watch cases are the same as the "Slate" above.

    Suunto Traverse

    I'd like confirmation on the following:

    1. Backlight type. LED or Electroluminescent?

    2. Backlight color?

    3. When in negative mode, is the display actually black (like they try very hard to show in the photos) or is it really "dark navy blue" like on the Ambit 3 and the photos are faked to appear black (like with the Ambit 3 photos)?

    4. Does it have a barometric trend arrow for the time screen?

    5. How easy are the buttons to depress? Do they require a heavy push (like the middle button on the Regular Black Core)? Or are they smooth and easy to depress (like on the All Black/"Military" Core)?

    6. How long can the countdown timer be set for? (It's insane that the Core can only countdown from 1 ½ hours. Absolutely insane design choice. Insane. Ha. Who thought that up? More importantly, who put their foot down and said, "No no no no no no no. We will not increase that limit on any new Cores we manufacture! NO ONE needs to countdown from beyond 99 minutes! NO ONE!")

    7. When using the countdown timer, does the vibration alarm keep vibrating until you notice it (like on the Garmin Tactix) and then you press a button to reset it? Or, does it vibrate once, reset itself, and hopefully you noticed that it vibrated?

    8. Does it have a sunrise or sunset alarm that automatically adjusts itself daily (like the sunset alarm on the Garmin Tactix?) (It would be great if a watch had both. Then you could automatically and consistently wake up with the sun and set up camp a specific amount of time before sunset.)

    9. Are the buttons waterproofed (like on the Core, so you can operate the backlight underwater to see your depth etc.)?

    10. Does it have a depth meter?

    11. "Will it blend?" *


    (* If you get this reference unassisted by Google, you are made of 100% awesome.)

    It's pretty fantastic that Suunto are doing all the manufacturing by hand in Finland.

    Suunto Traverse

    There seems to be a lot of hocus pocus going on with the various model descriptions. It seems clear to me that there are 3 watches being manufactured:

    1. Half-Stainless Steel/Half-Dark Grey Stainless Steel (Black Model)

    2. All Dark Grey Stainless Steel (Amber, Graphite, or Slate Models)

    3. Half-Stainless Steel/Half-White Stainless Steel (White Model)

    And there are four bands being manufactured:

    1. Orange Silicone (Amber)

    2. Black Silicone (Black)

    3. Dark Grey Silicone (Graphite)

    4. Olive Drab Nato Cloth (Slate)

    Want a mostly black "special ops/tacticool"-looking Traverse? Buy watch #2 and strap #2.

    Buy from REI though. Within six months a true "all black/military" model may be released and if you want it, you can swap it so long as you baby the watch until then.

    Re: Suunto Traverse

    A while ago, the ancient Vector got discontinued. The Core was introduced in 2007 and it has remained unchanged. Now there's Essential, now this Traverse and Kailash is supposed to be coming soon. I have such a cold in my back that this might well be the leaving countdown for Core...

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention! The black model looks outstanding. I like it without the lugs too:
